Allan Ahlberg y Janet Ahlberg12,99 € 12,08 €
One of my childhood favourites! Full of fun little notes and cards to read! Probably most suitable for 3+.
Raymond Briggs7,99 € 7,43 €
A Raymond Briggs original, this illustrated story is timeless and a lovely gift for any age.
Jane Mount21,99 € 20,45 €
I love Jane Mount's book illustrations and think they make a perfect gift for book fans.
Brandon Stanton25,00 € 23,25 €
I'll always recommend this. The HONY stories are incredible and I can't imagine not wanting to own a copy to flick through.
Cathy Rentzenbrink12,99 € 12,08 €
I haven't read this yet but it's on my own wishlist. Author Cathy Retzenbrink talks about the books that have brought her comfort and joy.
Manifesto: A radically honest and inspirational memoir from the Booker Prize winning author of Girl, Woman, Other
Bernardine Evaristo14,99 € 13,94 €
This is 100% on my own wishlist! 2021 became the year I fell in love with Bernadine Evaristo and I can't wait to read her memoir.
Jean Meltzer8,99 € 8,36 €
Not strictly a Christmas gift and Chanukkah is well over BUT a nice change from the usual holiday romance books, plus a great insight into both Judaism and living with chronic illness. Sweet and thought-provoking. Probably a good purchase for young women/young adults who enjoy romance novels.
Helene Hanff8,99 € 8,36 €
This is an old book but I just discovered it this year and fell totally in love. Helene Hanff kept up a 20 year relationship by letters with a bookseller at a London bookshop in the 1940s. This book features some of those letters. Delightful. Suitable for most, probably ideally ages 15+.
Amanda Montell20,00 € 18,60 €
For the word lovers among your friends and family I recommend Amanda Montell's Cultish. A deep dive into the way language is used within both cults and cult-like communities, I found it very interesting.
Meg Mason14,99 € 13,94 €
Though this wasn't an upbeat read per se, I thought it deserved a place on the Christmas list because it's a book that will speak to many. Following one woman struggling with an as-yet undiagnosed, unnamed mental illness, it's sad but also very moving and unique in how it communicates the experience.
HELLY ACTON8,99 € 8,36 €
This was one of the most fun books I read this year and will be an ideal addition to a Christmas gift, probably suitable for ages 14+. A woman is dumped live on air and tricked into appearing into a reality TV show along with a mish mash of other similarly humiliated women. What follows is a silly but smart feminist takedown of dating, reality TV and awful boyfriends.
Fredrik Backman8,99 € 8,36 €
This isn't a new novel (Frederik Backman's most recent is actually Anxious People which my mother assures me is also excellent). Beartown is such a unique story and the follow up, Us Against You, was also fantastic. Although Backman's prose isn't for everyone, this book is potentially suitable for pretty much anyone, ages 15/16+ I'd say.
Rebekah Taussig11,99 € 11,15 €
For non-fiction lovers I cannot recommend these essays more highly. Rebekah Taussig is a disability educator who is disabled herself, and she has the most fantastic ability to communicate both her experience and how we should be moving forward in making the world a more inclusive and accessible place. This will be something I definitely re-read in the future.

Miriam Margolyes20,00 € 18,60 €
I mean, who doesn't love a bit of Miriam Margolyes? Also she writes in the book about learning about genealogy from my Dad's cousin so now I HAVE to recommend it.
Jasper Rees9,99 € 9,29 €
I bought this for my Grandma who is a huge Victoria Wood fan. If anyone you love enjoyed Dinnerladies, Wood and Walters or really any of Wood's other works, this is supposed to be excellent.
Elizabeth Day10,00 € 9,30 €
For the Elizabeth Day/How To Fail podcast fan in your life. I love the ideas of embracing failure for the sake of future successes.
Kiran Millwood Hargrave y Tom de Freston12,99 € 12,08 €
For the younger giftees in your family, I've heard nice stuff about Julia and the Shark. n illustrated book about the environmental crisis, family and hope.
Gyles Brandreth25,00 € 23,25 €
For the Royalist in your life! Gyles Brandreth is a fantastic writer and I have no doubt his book about Prince Phillip will contain plenty of humour alongside the actual historical factual bits!
BRIAN COX20,00 € 18,60 €
For the Succession fan in your life. If they weren't obsessed with Brian Cox before they probably will be now.
