These can make a fun gift for an audiobook lover. Some of the designs are simply advertising audiobook services, however there are some interesting options available.
- Playing Device Accessories
Accessories such as new ear phones or an ear phone case make a great gift. As can a cover for an audio playing device. There are many different types of cover available and the type and style of the cover can be tailored to the recipient. A leather cover, for instance, would make a great gift for a business person where as a handknitted cozy would make a fun gift for a less formal situation.
- Free Audiobooks
A low cost idea which would make an interesting gift is to look for free audiobooks from services such as Librivox and create a library of free audiobooks for someone. The Librivox audiobooks are in the public domain and can freely be copied onto your device and shared with others. There are many classic works available. Making a collection of audiobooks in a favorite genre would make a different and thoughtful gift.
