Gift Ideas for Film and TV Buffs

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Ready or not, the gift-giving season is upon us! Whether you celebrate Sinterklaas, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah or any other opportunity to give presents during the dark days of the winter solstice, we’ve got ideas aplenty. As in previous years, the ABC Staff has looked through their sections and hand-picked various choice literary jewels for your gift-giving pleasure.

We will present these titles in a series of blog posts and recommendation lists throughout the coming month. We hope you will find some inspiration in them, but please remember that these titles only represent a tiny fraction of the books on offer in our stores. Be sure to stop by to see what else there is in the area of your interest!

Today we hope you can find some gifts for those film, TV and theater critics in your group of friends, from our Film & TV, Plays and Animation sections.

You can find our gift ideas from previous years here (scroll down a bit to 2013 and beyond), and be sure to have a look at our ABC Favorites, too.

Everyone knows one: that person who doesn’t read books.  Who thinks books are old-fashioned and just bits of dead tree (or useless bits and bytes, for that matter).  Who claims that reading is not something they do.  Well, we have gifts for them too!  All you have to do is check our Magazines, Audio Books, Calendars, Games and Stationery sections (we also have Cards, and Merchandise like Pop! Vinyl figures), or the areas near our cash registers that are always filled with little bits and bobs you didn’t know you absolutely needed to have.
