Christmas Gift Guide: BOOKS


That’s right, we’re back here again. Christmas. Mere weeks away. Whether you love it or loathe it (hey, no judgement here), it’s probably best not to leave gift buying ’til Christmas sodding Eve, traipsing down the high street in a hot sweat. So over the next few weeks, THE FACE will be here to lend a hand with fool-proof Christmas gift guides for music heads, fashion aficionados, art nerds, bookworms and more.

A book says a thousand words, and whether you’re shopping for fanatics or those in need of a handsome bookshelf spruce-up, retreating from the festive madness will be made that much sweeter with this handy guide to the best literary gifts. From hilarious nonfiction essays and niche independent titles to zines, proper escapism and bonafide witchcraft, there’s something here for everyone. And if the lucky sod isn’t convinced by their gift, remind them of this poignant, earth-shattering John Waters quote: “If you take somebody home and they don't have books, don’t fuck ’em.” His words, not ours.

The best of THE FACE. Straight to your inbox.
