Of course, you could just give them an Amazon gift card, but for those who want to give something a bit more personal, there are several things that you can give that special someone who is far away (whether because they are in the military or other service and deployed, or because they are in college, or because they simply live elsewhere), and they will also make great gifts for those picky people on your list, or that person who has everything.

The Gift of a Year of Audible Audio Books

Here at the Internet Patrol we love our Audible membership, and they have gift memberships for the holidays! We listen to audio books in the car, while cleaning, and even while cooking! And there are so many great audio books from which to choose, and the gift of an Audible membership allows your gift recipient to pick their own audio books! You can give them a month of Audible for just $15, 3 months for $45, 6 months for $90, or a full year for $150!

The Gift of Kindle Unlimited

Kindle Unlimited allows someone to read as many Kindle ebooks as they want – it’s like an all-you-can-eat literary buffet! It also does include some audio books, but they are not the same level, quality, or selection as the audio books available on Audible. But for reading? This is the holy grail of digital reading. You can give your favorite bookworm the gift of 6 months of unlimited Kindle reading for $29.97, 12 months for $80.30, or a whopping 24 months for $143.80.

We have to confess that we don’t know many people these days who don’t already have Amazon Prime, but for those who don’t, it’s a great gift (couple it with an Amazon gift card and your recipient will be over the moon!)

And your gift Amazon Prime membership doesn’t just include a year of free shipping from Amazon, oh no. It also includes all of the movies and television shows on Prime Video, including Amazon Original shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel that you can only watch on Amazon. And then there are the millions of songs and playlists on Amazon Music Prime, and of course the great Prime membership deals at Whole Foods!
