If so, how about giving them an e-book or two for Christmas? (Bonus: you don't have to wrestle with crowds or stand in long lines. In fact, you don't even have to leave your house!)

Open Road's Gift of E website has a great selection of e-books, plus easy-to-follow instructions for how to gift an e-book to someone, no matter what device they're using. Check out their video:
