Shopping for the perfect gifts takes a lot of time and energy. This year I’m LOVING the trend I already see emerging where bloggers share ideas in posts. How great is that? Like sharing with your friends without ever leaving home. Today I present my part 1: books. Now if you know me at all you’ll know I’m a bookworm. So much so, I’m going to add a tab to my blog just about my favorite/most recommended reads. But that’s something for another day. Today I want to suggest some books I have purchased for people on my holiday list:
Perfect for the fancy little girl in your life: I gave this to Miss E as a pre-Christmas gift. It’s really, really popular here in 4-year-old land. So are all her books. (Target has a whole Fancy Nancy section!)
Or for the older girl in your life, another Nancy- Nancy Drew. CLASSIC.
This is a fantastic cookbook – I’m giving one away to a cook in my life who doesn’t know about Ree & her blog or site. I bet she’ll love it much as I do.
The Twits was always a favorite of mine, but you really can’t go wrong. Charlie and the chocolate factory, The Witches, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda… I’m talking Roald Dahl here and for any school aged kid – boy or girl – these are classic must-reads.
and last but not least, for the mushy romantic in your life I suggest some Nora Roberts. Darn her – she got me all choked up once again by the time I was nearing the end of this one. She sure does suck a girl into feeling like the characters are real and friends to boot. I’m loving her Bride Quartet series (this is book #2) about four best friends who run a wedding business… and are falling in loooovvvvveeee one at a time. (sigh) You’d think it would be over the top – but so far it’s so not. Best of all the book is PRETTY. No trashy cover here – no a lovely cover, beautiful deckle edged pages and even a scallop border on the inset. A good giftable romance if I ever saw one.
