But here's the thing. I don't believe in Holiday Gift Guides.
Don't get me wrong, I celebrate Christmas with the best of 'em! But what ends up under my tree doesn't come from Holiday Gift Guides. Once, (once!) I bought something that I saw in the toy guide that Family Fun magazine put out right before the holidays -- but I bought it long after the season had passed.
|I bought this game years ago and still love it.|
I highly recommend it!
Perfect for preschoolers.
(A little younger or a little older is OK too.)
Anyway, if I'm going to go to the trouble of suggesting things for you to purchase this holiday season, I want it to actually be useful to you. So. I am not going to create a Holiday Gift Guide. I'm going to create a list of personalized book recommendations!
I did this on Facebook, quick and dirty, a while back, and it was great fun:
|We'll do it like this, but with pictures of those beautiful book covers.|
I'm thinking I'll do this in a separate post, so that it doesn't have to have all of this explanation on top of it. I'll call it, Not a Holiday Gift Guide: Books to give in 2014.
You can leave your queries on this post or on the Not a Holiday Gift Guide post, I'll see them either place. I'll start adding recommendations Monday 11/17/14 call it quits on 12/18/14, or thereabouts, because after that shipping gets dicey.
So, who do YOU want to buy a book for? One person? A whole family? The same book for several people who will all like it? I'm up for a challenge.
Alysa, give me a book recommendation for __________!
p.s. If you want to include your budget or where online you like to shop, that's fine with me!
