Give the gift of knowledge this year: Shop the UF/IFAS Extension Bookstore

With more than 400 items available for purchase, the UF/IFAS Extension Bookstore has something for everyone on your list this year. These items make perfect stocking stuffers, white elephant gifts or as a treat for yourself.

For the kids

Build-a-bug! This activity includes 21 laminated sheets of eight bugs found in Florida. The activity is designed as a group game but can be enjoyed individually.

Learn more about bugs with books from UF/IFAS entomologists and take your adventure outside with a backyard workbook.

Small, pocket-sized gifts

Playing cards for nature lovers. Deck themes vary and options include trees, wildflowers, mushrooms and saltwater fish and are perfect to pull out for game time at your holiday gatherings.

For a gardener or someone about to take on a Florida-Friendly yard overhaul, consider the Plant This, Not That handbook. This guide helps determine the best plants for your Florida yard and steers you away from invasive, potentially harmful plants.

Need help identifying that plant or critter? These pocket guides are the perfect size to keep in your backpack, car or beach bag. Identification guides for the beach, your own back yard, bugs in your garden or neighborhood butterflies all can be found at the bookstore.

Books for $1

If you’re shopping on a budget, check out the Books for $1 section. This section contains posters, handbooks and more and all items are exactly as named, all $1.


‘Tis the season to cook for family and friends. The bookstore has a variety of cookbooks for the cook in the family (or maybe someone that needs to up their cooking game). Some focus on ingredients like honey, blueberries, and squash. Or focus on Southern cuisine! The entire list of cookbooks and additional health and nutrition-related items can be found here.

Order by Dec. 15 for delivery to Florida addresses in time for the holidays. Out of state orders should be submitted prior to Dec. 10. For more gift ideas, gift bundles and more, visit the UF/IFAS Extension Bookstore website.
