These Are the Only Coffee Table Books You Should Be Buying This Christmas

Give a classic gift this holiday season…that will actually arrive in time!    

Did you pull uncle Bob’s name in the gift swap this year and haven’t a clue what to get him? Or maybe you need one last thoughtful gift for mom to round out that cashmere (ahem, splurge!) scarf you got her? Well, we’re here to rescue you from exorbitant last-minute shipping fees with a list of 12 super rad new(ish) coffee table books that you can get shipped for free in time for Christmas (with Amazon Prime).

What’s so great about a boring old coffee table book? Well, a lot of things, actually. One, it’s an actual book that you can—ya know—read. And learn stuff from. Second, it functions as décor, brightening a man cave or adding a dash of high-fashion to a low-budget living room. Third, it’s a conversation starter. Friends and family gathered around a sofa are sure to leaf through the below books, and whether you opt to gift Stephanie Mark’s The Coveteur or Grey Malin’s Beaches, they will likely inspire discussions and anecdotes that would have never arisen otherwise. Which is why (to reiterate), coffee table books make such great gifts. Oh, and all but two of our selection below are under $30—wootwoot!
