2. Suri’s Burn Book by Allie Hagan ($10.36, amazon.com).
Based on a blog and written from the point of view of Suri Cruise (though not, as you might have guessed, ACTUALLY written by Suri Cruise), Suri’s Burn Book covers everything from celebrity culture to the worst fashion fails ever. For a ton of wit and a dose of snark about all things pop culture, look no further. Just because you don’t have a Ferragamo doesn’t mean you can behave like a child—and yes, Suri’s looking at you, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt!
3. Miss Jane Austen’s Guide to Modern Life Dilemmas by Rebecca Smith ($11.41, barnesandnoble.com)
For the Jane Austen fan in your life. Derived from the celebrated author’s letters, novels, and unpublished writings, this handy guide will help you through such dilemmas as unfriending your ex, how to recover from embarrassing blunders with (at least a little) dignity, the great “heels vs. flats” debate, and many, many more. Even better, it was written by the great-great-great-great-great-great niece of Jane Austen herself!
4. Litographs ($29, litographs.com).
These? Best. Things. EVER. Litographs are literally entire books printed on posters, available in both color and black and white versions. Whether you’re dealing with a Dickens fan, a Bronte enthusiast, a hardcore Sir Arthur Conan Doyle lover, or a devotee of Da Vinci, you’re sure to find the right Litograph for them! We’re particularly fond of The Works of Edgar Allan Poe one shown above, but maybe that’s just us. Check it out on Litgraph’s website to zoom in and see all the tiny text!
