Coffee Table Books

Although many people use the term in a negative sense, I have to admit that I love the so-called "coffee table books." These books are usually colorful and large with many beautiful pictures and graphics. Interesting books make excellent conversation starters at parties and gatherings. The books people display on their coffee table can be a window to a personal interest like travel, nature, or photography.

Gilt, a members only shopping site, is offering some spectacular Assouline books that would make a lovely housewarming or hostess gift. Here are some of my favorites:

For the princess...

For the traveler...

For the social climber...

For those who are already there...
