Holiday Fun: Books as Gifts Part 2 Changeless

The book basket ideas continue, if you want to know what I'm on about the introduction to this idea is here.

Our example: the Parasol Protectorate books
1. Order signed from Borderlands (Definitely get your request in before Dec 15th, that's the last time I'll be able to get in to sign stock for them before the holidays.)
2. Source a vintage looking basket, possibly from a local thrift store
3. Fill with accompanying fun items, many of which might also be found at a thrift store

This basket is themed to Changeless and/or Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 2 (the graphic novel adaptation of Changeless.)

Changeless Madame Lefoux Cross-Dressing and/or Scotland themedNext up in this blog I'll do a fantasy book basket idea for Blameless, in the meantime I'm interested in your ideas. Anything you've run across that would fit with this theme? Suggestions for good recipes? Other books that might work with this basket?

I love this book basket idea. It gives me all sorts of ideas for a gag gift book basket...
