my husband is a huge Frank Sinatra fan. Thank you for this! I love giving books as presents-it's such a personal gift. My choice this year would be Bill Bryson's book Home. I love introducing my friends to his writing.

Great picks! This past year, I loved these books, so I'll gift these to my nearest & dearest:
Great House by Nicole Krauss
Vanishing and Other Stories by Deborah Willis
The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman
I'm getting my fiance Sugar & Spice it's a compilation of books about cooking desserts 🙂
Gorgeous collection 🙂 I LOVE the Audrey Hepburn book. (I just curled up to Roman Holiday this weekend.) Another great book for anyone into style is Rachel Zoe's guide book.
i am also giving Cleopatra…to my archeology/classical studies majoring daughter.
How to Sew a Button and Other Nifty Things your Granmother Knew–Erin Bried
As Always, Julia:The Letters of Julia child and Avis DeVoto–Joan Rearden
My New Orleans (cookbook & stories from one of my fav. n.o. chefs)–John Besh
Frank Stitt's Southern Table: Recipes and Gracious Traditions from Highlands Bar and Grill–Frank Stitt (a little bit of an oldie, but one of my top five favorite cookbook/lookbooks, gorgeous pics, great recipes and very nice writing)
that's all for the moment, more will be added in my annual last minute shopping frenzy..
p.s. love your website!
The Audrey Hepburn book is on my wish list. I'm giving away Read My Pins (about Madeleine Albright), A Life of Style by Rebecca Moses and Etc by Sibella Court.
lovely to see your gift choices. I am giving Eternal Echoes by John O'Donohue – I love this book. Then I am making 6 custom calendars of my nature photography – does that count?
At anyone who hasn't read them, I always hurl "Guns, Germs and Steel," or "All Quiet on the Western Front." Hardback. Right in the face. BAM! Knowledge!
I'm giving "Eat Pray Love" to my aunt!! =)
I have the Pursuit of Happiness to give-and got one for myself as well. I have covered clients and family in The World of Madeline Castaing.
I'm going back to classics this year–
The Complete Novels and Short Stories of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for my dad,
The Rag and Bone Shop of the Heart for my mom,
Letters to a Young Poet for my sister…
and I would love that Audrey book!
I'm still giving The Help to anyone who hasn't read it yet!
