I've decided it would be fun to get into the holiday spirit this year by posting about great gifts to give, outings, giving , traditions and generally wonderful ways to celebrate the holiday season.
My first post, something that has been on my must give gift list for ages. ( and I admit, the idea of getting one of these or a subscription is pure joy! ) Books from Persephone Books in England are a delightful gift for the holidays or any time of year.
Persephone prints mainly neglected fiction and non-fiction by women, for women and about women. The books are a joy to read ( think Miss Pettigrew lives for a day ) and beautiful to look at...Love the idea of a stack OR giving a subscription for a book a month. Imagine that little delight in your mailbox each month!
The sell primarily through mail order, and the books come wrapped beautifully..Or, if you find your self in London, stop by the shop!
