OK, so you're trying to go light on the environment and go light on the ole pocket book. Why not get something used instead of new? The challenge of course is finding what they might want, so don't resort to last minute shopping on this one, you want to start early. Craigslist is a great resource and here's a good link to a used bookstore site that will let you know what's what in your area. And when you give someone their present, let them know why you went used instead of new, it may just change their shopping habits next year.
