There are so many great books I’ve enjoyed this past year, so I’ll just highlight a couple that I would recommend as gifts.

Although I do most of my work on my laptop, there are times when I prefer to take notes the old-fashioned way. In fact, research has shown that writing notes (rather than typing) helps you retain information better. I prefer this journal that has dotted pages so that you can easily create boxes and diagrams.
Most PMs work in open workspace environments, so a good pair of noise-canceling headphones is a must-have to help them block out the noise and focus on making their products even better. I love my Sennheisers! You will have a hard time finding earbuds as good and affordable as these. Plus, they have a good microphone which is a bonus if you’re doing a lot of calls from your desk.
