Holiday Fun: Books as Gifts Part 3 Blameless Basket Parasol Theme

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

Our example is the Parasol Protectorate books but you can do this with any genre book, I think. Just run with your imagination what about a Dune themed basket full of spices and spice cakes?

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 Blameless and/or The Parasol Protectorate Omnibus Vol. 1.
