Dharma Door Book Bag
Cost: $29 Where to get it: Dharma Door Why it's a good choice: Eco-friendly and hand-made in Bangladesh, it's always good to find a book bag which doesn't have children's TV characters on it.
Expedit Advent Bookshelf
Cost: $US379 Where to get it: Amazon Why it's a good choice: Even if your book-loving recipient owns a more basic e-book reader, they'll love the larger screen, instant 3G and Wi-Fi delivery, and impressive range of titles available on Amazon's flagship device.
