This year my husband and I contemplated doing the “want, wear, need, read” gifts for Madi, mostly because her “want” is a pretty big American Girl item and also because she definitely does not need MORE of anything. She has inherited my love for books, and the set I have in today’s gift guide from Bible Belles is one of her favorites.
Although I own all the electronic gadgets to read eBooks, I love real books. I love flipping through cookbooks and marking recipes I want to try and looking at well-loved recipes with notes in the margins and stains on the pages. Digital books simply don’t show how much they’ve been loved like a real book with it’s folded corners and highlighted pages. There is something special about receiving a book at the holidays that feels like it truly might be the gift that keeps giving. Once all the packages are open and the travel is over, you can sit down and truly enjoy yourself for a few evening, a week, maybe a month.
