If quarantine life has taught us one thing, it’s that we need to keep things fun and interesting at home. That’s why book gifts are a perfect pick this year. Not only do book gifts help us to expand our mental horizons and escape into a dream world, but they also keep us entertained and delighted. Let’s be honest… as the weather cools down, the idea of cozying up in pj’s with a cup of coffee and a good book is truly something we’d all enjoy right now.
4 Book Gifts That Will Inspire The Imagination This Holiday
- Return to Virgin River by Robyn Carr
- Pretending by Holly Bourne
- The Chanel Sisters by Judithe Little
- One More For Christmas by Sarah Morgan
Book Gift Idea: Return to Virgin River
Written by New York Times bestselling author, Robyn Carr, Return to Virgin River is a binge-worthy story about a California writer who is facing writer’s block (due to grief over her mother’s recent death). To give her a change of scenery, she decides to escape her day-to-day life and the hectic holiday season by borrowing a cabin in a place called Virgin River. In this sleepy, isolated town she ends up discovering heartwarming strangers who make her feel at home and realizing there are even more joyful reasons to celebrate life.
Book Gift Idea: The Chanel Sisters
If you’re shopping for a stylish gal who loves anything designer, then this novel is a great book gift idea for her. Written by Judithe Little, The Chanel Sisters is a story about Antoinette and Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. It’s an inspiring story about “survival, love, loss, triumph, and the sisters who changed fashion forever”. It tells the emotionally moving rags-to-riches story about how Chanel rose to fame through dedication, hard work, and persistence.
Book Gift Idea: One More for Christmas
Written by USA Today bestselling author of The Christmas Sisters, Sarah Morgan has done it again with her enchanting new novel, One More for Christmas. This story is about two sisters who have always loved the joy of Christmas (and usually view it as a time to make up for their childhood that lacked holiday spirit). This year is a little different for the sisters, as they now plan to spend the holiday with an unexpected visitor – their estranged mother (a successful career woman with a tough-love approach). If there’s one key message that this inspiring and heartfelt story tells us, it’s that “facing up to the past is all you need to heal your heart”.
Book Gift Idea: Pretending
Written by Holly Bourne, Pretending is a romance novel about a gal who has a challenge forming a relationship with a man. Every time she starts to get close to a guy, after a few dates, they ultimately reveal their true character, and she ends up disappointed. As she starts to realize that men are looking for an idealized version of a woman – a beautiful, low-maintenance, sweet but not clingy type of gal – she decides to start pretending to be this “perfect woman”. While her new approach is working, the difficult part is… as she starts getting closer to a new guy, the question she begins to ask herself is – how long can I keep pretending to be someone I’m not? Perfect for single gals who need a little inspiration and hope for their love life, this book gift is a great reminder that ultimately, being your authentic self is the best way to go.
