Unique Gifts for Moms Who Love to Read: Book & DVD Gift Combos
A nice way to make an ordinary gift an extraordinary one is to pair an award-winning book with its (hopefully) award-winning movie adaptation. Great for readers and movie lovers alike, a book/DVD combo present is a gift that gives mom a chance to feed her imagination and her senses (in whichever order she chooses).
Give Mom the Gift of Romance, Inspiration or Just a Good Thrill
Not sure what books to choose? Here are three popular novels paired with their equally-popular film adaptations, any one of which makes a great gift for a book-loving mother:
- Dear John: Based on a novel by the perennially popular Nicholas Sparks, Dear John (2010) is a romantic drama about a young Army office who falls in love while on leave and must face the inevitable pain of separating with his lover when he re-enlists after the 9/11 attack.
- The Shawshank Redemption: Nominated for seven Oscars, The Shawshank Redemption (1995) is the award-winning film adaption of Stephen King’s short story, Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption. It’s an amazing story of human friendship, spirit and ingenuity. Want to make your present a double (or triple) feature? Stephen King’s short story is available in a four-story collection called Different Seasons that also includes the stories that were later adapted into the movies Apt Pupil (1998) and Stand by Me (1986).
- Capote: Does your mother prefer biographies to romance? Then spare her the romcom combo and pair Gerald Clarke’s fascinating Capote with the 2005 Oscar-winning film adaptation of the same name (starring an amazing performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman). This pair is so good she’ll have a hard time deciding with which to start.
