While not explicitly a shopping guide, Design Observer’s 2006 Holiday Reading List is full of great gift ideas. There is no better time to catch up on reading then after eating 3 plates of turkey – that is if you can stay awake. Books make the best portable gift. Hard to make a choice but Edward Tufte’s Beautiful Evidence, Barry Schwartz’s The Paradox of Choice: Why More is Less, and Guy Delisle’s Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea would be a good start.
