When you don’t know what to get someone, but you want to make an impact and show the you do know something about their tastes and personality, opt for a book. Ideally, a coffee table book. The great thing about them is that they're meant to be savored. Oversized and plenty thick, they tend to take a while to get through. You pick one up, indulge yourself for a while and then set it back down. When you give a coffee table book, you're giving an activity, a true objet d'art and the gift of time. Here are a handful of our team's favorites to spruce up someone's space and pique their intellectual curiosity.
