Home Alone: The Classic Illustrated Storybook
This storybook retelling of Home Alone is fun for a child or a child of the Nineties in your life. The pictures are adorable and the story still works in this format.
If You Plant a Seed
This sweet picture book about sowing the seeds of kindness in the world couldn’t be more topical. The illustrations in this book are incredibly beautiful.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: The Illustrated Edition
This is a great way to introduce this book to a child who may be reluctant to read books without pictures. It’s also a great way to bribe a grown up Potterhead to like you.
Puffin in Bloom Collection
This beautiful collection of children’s classics was designed by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. You could buy them for a kid I guess. I definitely bought them for myself.
Sarah Dessen is this generation’s Judy Blume; she is the reigning YA queen. While her books follow a pattern, girl meets boy + obstacles, they are well written, humorous, and always deal with real life teen issues.
This is my favorite historical fiction book I read this year. It’s been curiously overlooked in my opinion, so if you get this your chances of giving someone a duplicate gift are slim!
The Royal We
This is great choice for lovers of chick-lit. It’s a funny and smartly written reimagining of a Will and Kate type royal romance.
Jane Austen the Complete Works (Hardcover Classic Series)
A beautiful and comprehensive collection for your favorite Austenphile.
Humans of New York Stories
A powerful and unique coffee table book, featuring the photography of Brandon Stanton.
The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime
Ree Drummond’s Dinnertime cookbook is colorful and fun and full of great recipes. Her 4th cook book includes a lot of really practical tips on freezer meals and getting food on the table quickly.
