Christmas Gift Ideas - Books

I love books. Too much, we have too many, but a big beautiful art or make-up book is one of my favourite things to receive and there are a few other things here that are ideal for the book lover you need to get a gift for. 

Classic Beauty by Gabriela Hernandez of course I have to start with a make-up book (what did you expect?) and this is just a fantastic bible showing the history of make-up, how it has developed and colour charts for each decade 

Kindle Paperwhite,not only is it cool to hate Kindle’s in favour of real books but there is also way too much choice out there. I am a book lover (I worked in publishing for 6 years) and some books I want in book form. But for a lot of things I love having my kindle (going on holiday with a 2 year old for example… no room for books). I have a Kindle touch which I love but my husband has a Kindle Paperwhite which I use sometimes because I’m an insomniac and the Paperwhite has a light. I don’t need it to be in colour I don’t need anything fancy I have an iPhone and an iPad and a laptop an god knows what. But a plain and simple reader is great and really reasonably priced I think. 

Pretty Honest: The Straight-Talking Beauty Companion by Sali Hughes – a book that is, as I write, taking the beauty, book and general world by storm. A must have for any woman with a face.

And some I haven't read...

In Your Prime: Older, Wiser, Happier by India Knight – I have not read this but that is not because I don’t want to. I have to draw the line somewhere and I have my fingers crossed that I’m going to get this for Christmas. 

The New York Times. 36 Hours. 125 Weekends in Europe – great for a traveller, this is the Europe one but there is also Latin America, USA and Canada and Asia to choose from.

I do like to read Christmassy books at Christmas and the top two on my wishlist are The Nutcracker by E.T. A Hoffman and Christmas at Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons.
