Macs are great computers but we don’t always use (or even know about) their full potential.
If you know someone who’s recently bought a Mac, or who’s had their Mac for ages but doesn’t use it to full effect (who does?), then a Peachpit Press user guide might make a good present.
I know — a computer manual isn’t what you’d expect to find underneath the Christmas tree. But Peachpit’s guides are written in an ungeeky, user-friendly style — especially those by the wonderful Robin Williams. Who is not a comedian or actor but an expert in design, typography, Shakespeare, and all things Mac. Her books convey all the delights of using a Mac and are themselves a delight to read.
