Gift Idea 6: Coffee Table Books

A "coffee table book" can make for a wonderful Christmas present because it serves multiple purposes. Not only will it be interesting for the recipient (as it should be on a topic you know the recipient has expressed interest in), it also becomes a part of the room's decor and a conversation piece.

Below are 15 suggestions of coffee table books for gift giving this holiday season. Most of these are recently released hardcover photographic art books (i.e. published in 2015). They include books related to fashion and design, pets, nature, landmarks and cities, all of which are filled with engaging photographs and text.
