Holiday Mini-Books Provide Unique, Affordable Holiday Gift
Raleigh, NC, (October 25, 2011) – Each year when holiday shopping begins, people rush around, trying to find unique and affordable gifts. However, many people fail to discover that perfect present, and end up settling for whatever they can find at the last minute. This year, instead, many people are planning ahead and they will be turning to holiday mini-books for those on their shopping lists.
“You simply cannot go wrong when you give mini-books as gifts,” says Sarah Gilbert, the director at Lulu (www.lulu.com), where they provide the platform to make mini-books. “People love books and they adore the mini-books. And with the ability to customize them and create just about every type of book you can think of, they are perfect for moms, businesses, and everyone in between!”
Mini-books, which are miniature books, come in compact and wallet sizes – perfect for holiday stocking stuffers. People can use their own creativity in order to put together a mini-book that they can hand out to everyone on their list. Mini-books have been popular gifts for the past few holiday seasons, because there are so many options for what you can focus on and because they are easy to make. Just upload pictures to the Lulu Studio™, drag and drop, and add text.
Some popular holiday mini-book examples include:
• Holiday cocktail book
• Christmas cookie recipe book
• Custom photo calendar for the New Year
• Holiday photo book
• Custom coupon book to provide unique coupons
• Facebook friends book
• Unique poetry book
• Family-favorite recipe book
• Genealogy picture and fact book
• Children’s photo and story book
• Sports-themed books to showcase a season in sports
• Business books, including business cards, inspirational quotes, and end-of-year recap books
Along with the general public giving mini-books for gifts, there is also a growing trend for businesses to create their own mini-book to send out. They often send them to their top customers, vendors, and/or those with whom they routinely do business. These mini-books, priced from $3.99 to $5.99, come in a set of three, making them an affordable gift option this holiday.
“This year, many people will be looking to save money as they do their shopping,” added Gilbert. “With the affordable prices of mini-books, you’ll be able to please everyone on your list without going over your budget.”
