Mini Books Make Great Gifts

Updated on November 5, 2014

Five Reasons Why I Love Mini Books

From the first time I received a miniature book as a gift I have loved this world of little books. They make wonderful gifts and you know the saying "good things come in small packages"....well that applies to mini books. They make treasured memories too!

There's something for every taste, every occasion or just to say "thank you" or "I care..."

Let's look into the world of the miniature book.

# 1 Miniature Books Are Helpful

While many of the miniature books available are for inspiration many have a helpful purpose.

This little set of dictionaries would be a handy size to take with you when you travel. Doesn't take up much room and look great on your mantelpiece!

My Mom was a crossword fan

My Mom loved doing crosswords. She's been gone 10 years now but I treasure her much-used mini dictionary and thesaurus. The little Collins New Gem Dictionary that looks so loved has Mom's signature in the front cover and a date of April 1960. Pencil notes and comments adorn the pages...no doubt her own thesaurus! The newer mini was printed in 1992. Today's mini dictionary and thesaurus is the Oxford that follows.

This is not meant to help you master the whole English language...it is a small item so it has limitations! But it is a true pocket size dictionary with a little thesaurus as well.

A handy item for the avid reader, a Crossword fan, a Code Cracker fan or a Scrabble enthusiast. Such a thoughtful little gift!

Dimensions are:3.7 x 1.7 x 4.5 inches

Chicken Soup for the soul at Christmas

The famous book "Chicken Soup for the Soul" comes in a special miniature edition...and this makes a really great stocking stuffer.

Not only that, if you have to post Christmas mail overseas this is a wonderful gift. It's light and small so the postage won't break the bank!

# 4 Mailing Mini Books are a Breeze!

If you have lots of family and friends overseas or in other parts of the country sending a miniature book in the mail is just so easy. Usually you will manage to get it at a standard rate. This makes such a difference. I have always chocked at having to pay more for postage than I have spent on a gift. I'd much rather put the money into the gift than the means of transport! Little books are the answer...
