Book Gift Ideas for Kids and Adults – Gift Guide 2012

Gift Guide for books

gift ideas books for friends

1 : Who doesn’t love Todd Selby?  And now, in Edible Selby, he shares the food world through his art.  Yum!

2 : My husband’s friend, Justin Van Hoy, wrote Milk & Honey.  I was lucky enough to meet Justin and his wife this summer.  Justin passed away last week, unexpectedly, and the world has lost an extraordinary talent and important member of the art community.  The book is AMAZING and is the perfect gift for anyone in your life that loves art, style, and color.

3 : Food Fashion Friends by Fleur Wood may have been on my list last year.  But I still don’t have it.  And I still really want it.  Full of gorgeous images and entertaining ideas this book would make any gal swoon.

4 : Being from Orange County, LA can seem like world’s away due to ridiculously terrible traffic.  But it really is a City of Style with tons of amazing things to experience.  Perfect for people who wish they lived on the West Coast and locals alike.

5 : You know my family loves Dallas Clayton.  Make Magic, Do Good is his newest book.  This book will be here soon (Shhh, don’t tell my children!)

6 : How rad are these colors?!  I saw the cover of this book on Chronicle Books Instagram and had to check it out.  Ganesha’s Sweet Tooth is stunning and since I have a sweet tooth of course it is a favorite. The graphics are truly exceptional and I think any kid would love to open this up on Christmas morning.

7 : My boys and I read books every night before bed.  There are some books that I tolerate and they love.  There are some that I love and they (impatiently) tolerate.  But Stuck, we all enjoy.  It is charming and humorous and I love to gift this book.

8 : Do you have ‘Children Make Terrible Pets‘?  It is another one of our favorites.  Beatrice Bear is adorable.  My kids heard the author on the radio one day and he was talking about his new book, ‘You Will Be My Friend‘ and the boys demanded we get it.  SO great!  Peter Brown’s illustrations are perfect and the length of these books are just right – not too long, not too short. :)
