Last minute holiday shopping?

Your "Glad Recipient" will think you're a "Thoughtful Gift Giver" with one of these versatile gift certificates.


What precisely do you get your great aunt Edna, you know, the one who your only interaction with is an occasional squeeze on the cheek? What about your co-worker Bobby who you know nothing about except that you picked his name for the work secret Santa? What about your dentist? Or your really good friend who you know is an avid reader but forget exactly what she is an avid reader of?

There are dozens of people in our lives that appreciate a warm holiday gift even if we don’t know exactly what it should be or at precisely what temperature. And it’s especially hard to figure out when you wait until the last minute to get your presents. That’s why Capitol Hill Books offers gift certificates. Our gift certificates are available in any denomination you’d like and are good for anything in the store. Plus, they are written out in hand calligraphy for that extra decorative touch. We’re also more than happy to mail your gift certificate to anybody anywhere in the U.S. You can even pay for your gift certificate over the phone. Just call us at 303.837.0700

And since we have books on almost every subject, you can be sure that a Capitol Hill Books gift certificate would be appreciated by everyone from your uncle Larry to your aunt Louise.

Stuffing is not just for turkey anymore. You also have to stuff the stockings of tour friends and family members with small, inexpensive but interesting items like the ones you can find at Capitol Hill Books. We understand that it’s hard to fit a book like the “Collins’ Atlas of Archeology” in a small cotton sock, but a quippish magnet, some awesome notepads or a tin of Obama mints can easily fit in almost any type of foot covering.

Sometimes your own words are the best way to express your appreciation for a loved one. We have both blank cards and cards with messages in them to intrigue and inspire. All of them come with envelopes and have interesting designs that are a lot different than the typical cards found at drug stores.

Be a thoughtful gift giver by making someone a glad recipient of a Capitol Hill Books gift certificate.

Though it’s easy to spend hours browsing in Capitol Hill Books for the perfect holiday gift, we understand if you can’t remember if your sister likes Edward Abbey or Edwin Abbott.

You can make out gift certificates for any amount and your loved ones can use it to buy anything in the store including books, cards, magnets or whatever they want (well maybe not our bookshelves). And since our books are usually inexpensive, gift certificates go much further here than they would at a new bookstore.

So forget the long-lines at the mall and come to Capitol Hill Books for all your holiday shopping. Not only do we have books for almost every interest, but we also have those small items perfect for the office gift exchange or filling up your favorite argyle.
