What do you do with a gift you don’t necessarily need or like? Just do what everyone else does this time of year and regift! To ease any guilt you might feel, might we suggest pairing your regift with a book? That way you can guarantee that your present will be enjoyed and maybe even passed on to another book lover! Sure, the epic SNL skit says you shouldn't pair your regift with anything else or you'll risk your gift looking smaller and dumb, but we think books are the exception!

Here are our suggestions for book pairings with classic regifts.

Candles with Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

A classic regift goes hand in hand with a beloved classic novel. This heartwarming coming of age story makes a perfect holiday present on its own, and pairing with lovely smelling candles sounds divine. Who doesn’t want to read by candlelight? This gift pairing can’t go wrong, and the giftee can then go watch the amazing 2019 film adaption!
