Birthdays are a time for celebration. They are also a time for you to show someone how much you care about them, and how much you mean to them by purchasing that perfect gift. The perfect gift doesn’t mean you have to go out and spend a fortune, rather it is a gift that has thought behind it and shows you know that recipient well, understanding their likes and dislikes.
If the birthday guy or girl happens to enjoy folklore, tales, and stories about famous fictional and non-fictional thieves then there are all kinds of great gift ideas open to you. Here we’ll take a look at a handful of them to help give you ideas and inspiration as you search for that perfect gift for that special birthday person.
Feed Their Interest in Thieves Through Books
One of the best ways you can feed their interest of these fictional thieves is by picking up a book, or a few books, that feature one of these well-known characters. Take for example Robin Hood, who is arguably one of the most famous fictional thieves of all time. You’ll have no shortage of books to choose from, from the original story, to adventure novels that feature the thief in all his glory.
Then again maybe that special birthday person is ready to start learning about actual thieves in history, rather than fictional ones. If that’s the case you can pick up a book about Bonnie and Clyde, the famous couple who committed a number of huge bank robberies together, and even murders.
As SmashingTops.com showcases, you can go back further and time and take a look at Jesse James who was known for robbing stagecoaches, banks, and trains. He then went on to form a band that put fear into the south and has been immortalized through all kinds of movies since.
Get Creative and Make an Art Print
While on the topic of books, if you happen to know the recipients favorite book regarding fictional and non-fictional thieves in history, then you can go ahead and get creative. An art print is not only a unique gift, it’s one that shows a lot of thought. For this gift you can take a photocopy of a page in the book, and then have that page framed. It could be their favorite part in the book, a turning point in the plot, anything that stands out.
The Ideal Subscription Box
We all know that subscription boxes are all the rage right now, and did you know there is one that would be perfect for that lover of fictional and non-fictional crime tales? The Mysterious Bookshop’s Crime Club provides members with a signed first edition of a mystery book each month.
Put a Smile on Their Face
No matter which of these ideas you decide to go with, you’re sure to put a smile on their face and show just how well you know them.
