Are You Giving A Gift To A Person Who Loves History?

Are you planning to give a birthday gift or a gift for another occasion to a person in your life who loves history? This is a person who probably loves to read historical novels or even history textbooks, and who might love to watch movies that are based on history. Some of the books on their shelf might be Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell or The Winds Of War by Herman Wouk. And, this person probably knows so much about history that they could write their own book. Selecting a gift for a person who loves history should be a lot of fun. From buying coffee table books to purchasing replica coins, here are some ideas that might help you to select a unique gift.

The Right Book 

If you have decided that you want to purchase a book for your history-loving friend or family member, you might have a bit of a problem. The reason for that is that they probably already have many history books. See if you can talk to somebody who has access to their library so you can find out some titles that are already on the shelf. One idea is to buy a late edition coffee table book that has fabulous pictures in it. Another idea is to purchase biographies of famous people in history. For example, you might look for autobiographies written by presidents of the United States. 

Replica Coins 

Have you considered buying replica coins for the recipient of your gift? Perhaps they already have some and you want to add to their collection. Or, you might consider starting a collection by purchasing one very special replica coin. Think of starting a set of replica coins. For example, look for coins that represent each of the United States and give the recipient the coin that represents Alabama, thus going in alphabetical order. Another idea is to look for coins that have famous people of history as part of the coin's design. American Indian coins are also a good idea if the recipient of the gift loves American history.

If you do decide to purchase replica coins, think of also giving the recipient of your gift a place to keep the coin or coins. Depending on how much you want to spend, you can purchase a nice scrapbook or a leather collector's book. If you have questions about rare or replica coins, contact a local coin dealer.
