We count down our Glorious Gifts for 2016, sure to impress even the most discerning of recipients. Take a look at these selections and then make a beeline for the Bookmans location near you!

5. Hip Ukuleles
Having a hard time finding a gift for that present-elusive person in your life? Don’t fret! (So to speak). Ukuleles are fun, perfect for all ages and easy to learn. You might as well get one for a gift and one for yourself. As the great George Harrison explains, “Everyone should have and play a ‘UKE’ … it’s the one instrument you can’t play and not laugh. I love them, the more the merrier. So get yourself a few and enjoy yourselves.” Outfit your social circle with ukes this December and watch as the spontaneous harmony spreads.
4. Shiny New Board Games
We always have an awesome assortment of puzzles and games, but the holiday season brings in the best of the best. Check out our brand new board games, hot off the presses. Board games are not only fabulous gifts, but catalysts for ignoring electronic devices and laughing hysterically with friends and family. Give the gift of analog fun this holiday season.
3. Epic T.V. Box Sets
For those who need to get caught up on Game of Thrones or perhaps haven’t yet met their quota of Law and Order SVU as supplied by the USA network, we have the perfect gifts. This December, gift wrap some of the greatest series to grace the small screen. Help loved ones gear up for that power marathon of Castle or discover obscure BBC gems with complete box sets.
2. Vintage Video Games
Make 8-bit dreams come true with our far-out selection of retro and vintage video games. Need a system to play these glorious finds? We have you covered. The Bookmans Electronics Department is a destination for all things gamer. Discover gifts that will make both the angsty teens and nostalgic grown-ups in your life ecstatic.
