If you are looking for something to gift your near and dear ones this holiday season, here is something that might be of interest to you – Onyx Boox Leaf 3 E-Reader Gift Box Edition.

The special edition model costs $299 and can be bought via GeekWills.
The Leaf 3 Gift Box Edition however is a Chinese-only version, which means it might have limited applicability elsewhere in the world. The retailer however stated they are shipping worldwide though shipping times might vary according to the region from where the order has been placed. In any case, with less than a week left for Christmas, it’s unlikely the device is going to ship before the big day.
