Birthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day, etc. All of our charity thrift shops sell used books, for children and adults, usually priced at $.50 for paperbacks and $1.00 for hardcovers. Our library does, too. Sometimes these places have "sales" and you can pick up ten kids' books for $1.00.

A gift bag of books in nice condition, hand-selected by you based on the receiver's interests, makes a wonderful, personal present at a very low cost. Plus you're supporting the charity or library at the same time. And you avoid the crowds at the mall! :)

Books can be a wonderful, inexpensive gift or activity for a child. This is my two year old son Evan, looking at one of his favorites. It cost me all of a dollar at our local dollar store, and I can't tell you how many times he's "read" it! We've definitely gotten our dollar's worth out of it! Evan also got quite a few books for his birthday last week, which was great--he has plenty of toys, and being a teacher, I'm happy to have friends and relatives encourage his love of books too!

Save postage on gifts that go long distance by giving gifts that qualify for media postage, which is much less than regular parcel post. Media postage can be used for DVDs, CDs, books, tapes, or movies, information that doesn't contain advertisements can usually go media rate. Check with the post office for more details. This rate is not available at UPS, just the postal service.
