Chapters Indigo Simply Holiday Gift Guide

I have to admit it-I only buy books at Indigo as gifts. My own books come from the library, from the second-hand books stores, and from Value Village ($1.50 a pop!). However, I find Indigo an ultimate gift store-anything from gift cards, to CDs, to calendars, to candles...

This season Chapters Indigo is offering a whole bunch of good deals, especially if your list is long. My favourite-spend $100 in-store, and get a Roots leather overnight bag for only $59 (a $150-dollar value). Your folks get the gifts, and you get the duffel bag...Nice!

Indigo is also offering its own "Best of the Decade" book list:

1. The Books of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
2. The Birth House by Ami McKay
3. The Shadow of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
4. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
5. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
6. Eat Prey Love by Elizabeth Gilbert (my personal favourite-great book!)
7. A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah
8. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
9. The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan
10. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
11. The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
12. Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond

In addition, the store has a huge selection of "coffee table" books on sale, as well as some great biographies, candles, sweets, grooming products, and decorations.

Tip: Grab their in-store catalogue and find a 25% off coupon!
