Write a little note that says something like this: "The upcoming Bahá'í Holidays are a time of prayer, meditation and gift-giving. Here is a little something to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers." You can write it in the cover or, if you have lots of friends, run off 100 copies and slide it in an envelope along with this beautiful book of prayers. Everyone will be impressed by your thoughtfulness and generosity.
A Gift of Prayers is both dignified and affordable - an essential combination for effective teaching. If you need something even nicer, consider our Deluxe Edition (BKT-GDP). It has the same prayers, but is printed on cream paper and has a foil-stamped cover and square binding for more of a "book" feel.
NOTE: I can fit about 190 mini-books in a large flat-rate box for low-cost international or domestic shipping.
