Best Gifts For My Book Characters! Happy Holidays!

The Christmas Ficus

I've been doing a lot of holiday shopping and it just got me thinking - what would I get the main characters in my books (if they were real) for Christmas? 

Here's the gifts I've come up with:
  • KAIT LENOX from Adventures in Funeral Crashing (Funeral Crashing Series): (This book is still FREE btw!) I have a couple of ideas for Kait. If I went movies/TV: Harold and Maude (about death and funerals, yet funny) or Veronica Mars Season 1 (snarky teen sleuth). If I went books: Size 12 Isn't Fat by Meg Cabot or One For The Money by Janet Evanovich (both funny mysteries). Or if I went clothes, a cute shirt from Forever 21 (that she'd be able to wear to look cute for Ethan).
  • CHLOE from The New Girl Who Found A Dead Body (The New Girl Who Series) : Since she wants to work in the movie industry after college, I have a couple of ideas in that vein. Either some great movies (whatever caught my eye) or a book about screenwriting called Save The Cat or the book Rebel Without a Crew by Robert Rodriguez (about how at 23 with $7000 he made a movie and became a successful filmmaker) - both in the hopes that they'd inspire her to pursue her dreams even if murder mysteries continue to haunt her!
  • CITRUS LEAHY from Doppelganger (The Doppelgangers Series): I'd definitely get Citrus books because she loves to read! Some thoughts are Divergent by Veronica Roth to Easy by Tamarra Webber. Citrus reads everything so I could probably get her almost any book. Although, if I wanted to be helpful in her current Doppelganger situation, I might get her some movies, like: The Faculty or Invasion of the Body Snatchers or Disturbing Behavior or the TV series Roswell.
  • DREW from Connected (A Paranormal Romance): He's tough, but then again the guys in my life are always the hardest to buy for, in general. Maybe music or movies or books or a video game. He's pretty soulful. Maybe an itunes gift card. That would be the easiest. If I went books, I'd probably get him something like Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card or a book by Neal Stephenson. Or, a gift card to Urban Outfitters for some clothes.
That's my list so far! Wow, now I feel pressure to go do some more shopping! Happy Holidays everyone! And, happy shopping! Only 4 days left!
