Okay, so this is one of the two things on this list that is an actual book. This mystery book subscription service takes the stress out of finding the perfect book for the book lover in your life. All you have to do is let them know the type of book the recipient likes best, and that’s it.

Thanks to a gift card from Audible, you can get a giftcard for 1, 3, 6, or a 12-month subscription or even a specific audiobook, this gift gives lots of variety. Plus, with various options, it’s a great gift for any budget.
