Christmas in May...  
The hardest thing about being a year-round holiday shopper is finding something delicious and then needing to wait 6-7 months to be ready to give it. :P

I have a simple solution to this: just give it to them as a random gift or find an excuse.

Yeah, usually I would, but I snapped up FOUR copies of a delicious book for some of the hardest-to-buy-for boys on my list. I'm afraid I won't find anything nearly so good again this year, I know I didn't last year!

In that situation, just sitting on the awesome gifts is perfectly understandable. My gifts are often more time-sensitive.

Yup. Only perishable if I lick them too much. :)

Thank you for that mental image.

*chuckle* Just make sure that if you put them somewhere *safe* you make notes as to *WHERE* that *safe* place is so you can find them again. ;)

So speaks the voice of experience. ;) :p

Just a quick tip: Saran Wrap can be applied to the covers of particularly lickable books, and prevents almost all of the potential drool damage. It's saved my Guy Gavriel Kay books on more than one occasion...

Good plan!
