Chronicle Books #GiveBooks 2014

chroniclebooks-givebooks

With the holidays fast approaching, I’m sure most of you have already started eying potential gifts for your loved ones, and with all the wonderful books that have come out over the last few year, it would be a shame to not include a few to give.  Chronicle Books is launching their 3rd season of the Give Books campaign, where for every person who pledges to #GiveBooks via social media or here, you’re helping them reach their goal of donating 10,000 books to children in need through First Book.  You can also get 30% off + free shipping on orders at Chronicle Books (excluding personalized items) through December 31, 2014 with code GIVEBOOKS.

And as a special kick off, 1 of you lucky ducks gets a chance to win these 10 books that I’ll be giving away as gifts this season!  Keep reading for details!

 BOOK 1 CHEF

For my husband, who’s the epitome of a slow (and messy!) cooker, I’ll definitely be giving him copies of these 2 cookbooks.

Cooking Slow  |  Tartine Book No. 3

BOOK 4 ENGAGED

After years of having destination weddings back to back to back, I thought we were done, but low and behold, next year one of my bridesmaids is getting married AND I’m getting a new sister-in-law, so wedding books for everyone!

Handmade Weddings  |  All the Essentials Wedding Planner

BOOK 2 CRAFTY

You can never have too many craft books, and these are two of my favorites!

Paper+Craft  |  Pretty Packages

BOOK 3 HOSTESS

I know a few ladies who are quite the party planners, so an easy party kit and flower decorating book are top of my list to give them.

Decorate with Flowers  |  Pretty Paper Parties

BOOK 5 ARTIST-BABY

The 75 Artist Books I’ll probably keep for myself since I absolutely LOVE handmade books and these are stunners, and for my friends who are soon embarking on motherhood for the first time, having a guide to help you along the way is always appreciated.

75 Artist Books  |  The Baby Bump

To win a copy of all the books you see above, leave a comment below with what book YOU’LL be giving this year as a gift!  We’ll announce the winner on Friday.  Good luck, and #givebooks!!
