In addition to offering infinite experiences between their covers, books are easy to wrap (no box required), very portable, and very affordable (even the most luxurious coffee table book will be less pricey than the ugly sweater that will never be worn, or the hand-crafted ceramic object that will be live in a closet forever). The hard part is finding the right book for each person. Here’s help! PW has compiled lists of 2018 books for every interest and taste, conveniently organized into categories to satisfy every bookish appetite.

Happy holidays, and happy reading!
