BEST GIFT FOR HIM ON YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING LIST - THE HUNTED RIVER BY ROBERT S. KING
Give him, on your Christmas shopping list, a book. Yes. Giving a man a book means caring enough to give something of worth. It's certainly not the same as is giving him a tie, or a coffee mug. Giving a book implies you chose something unique for him. Giving a book says, He's smart, a man who reads. Think of the added opportunity to write inside the cover some words of gratitude, something like "Thank you for being you" or "With appreciation." If he cocks his head and lifts his eyes, he probably is thinking: She knows I'm intelligent.
