I am a huge, huge lover of books. I literally can’t get enough and I would say that reading is one of my favourite things to do. I seem to get a lot more done during the winter evenings and really look forward to nights in with candles, a hot bath and a good book. If anyone is ever struggling for a gift to get me, a book of some kind is always a safe bet.

In this Gift Guide the focus is books, however, even if you are looking for a present for someone that doesn’t seem to read a great deal, there are some lovely, helpful and interesting reads that are easy to pick up and put down, without the commitment of reading an entire book.

I love eating brunch but working 9-5, Monday to Friday means that it is a weekend treat for me. I picked up this book from Oliver Bonas for just £4.99 that was a bargain. It has all different brunch ideas that I can’t wait to try out. This would be a great gift for any food lover or someone that enjoys spending time in the kitchen to provide some brunch time inspiration.

I fell in love with the concept of Hygge when I discovered this little book. It is a Danish word meaning cosy, warm and being in your happy place. This book offers Hygge inspiration from your wardrobe, to cooking to activities and decorating your home. It is such a lovely coffee table book that would be sure to warm the heart of any of its readers.

As you might already know, if you read my Capsule Wardrobe Hopes, Dreams and Plans post, I am currently in the process of sorting out an organising my home. I picked up this book that I have seen multiple times on the Internet in the hope that it will help me on my quest for a tidy and organised home. I think that this would be a great present to someone that has just moved or are on his or her way to university to help him or her settle in with a tidy frame of mind.

I love new stationary and I think that it is a lovely gift to get someone for Christmas. Rifle Paper Co. is a beautiful, luxury, stationary brand that offer a huge range from calendars to note pads to thank you cards. I love this little To Do list; the paper is so pretty.

Other Recommendations

©     For Disney Lovers – There is a new series called A Twisted Tale which takes the reader through classic Disney stories as if the villian had got their way. I think that these would be a perfect stocking filler for any Disney lover.
©     Fantasy Lovers – For any fiction or fantasy lover I think that the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Series is a great option that has been suggested will fill a Harry Potter shaped hole.
©   Crime/Detective lovers – One of the great things about buying people crime and detective books is that you can always introduce them to a brand new series such as Harry Hole by Jo Nesbo or get them a one off, completely contained story such as The Widow by Fiona Barton.
©     History Lovers – For any historical fiction lover, the Philippa Gregory books are always a great option so why not treat them to the latest in her collection.

©     For Travelers – Or if you know someone that is going away next year, a travel guide or a book about the place can be a really nice and personalised present.
