Whether it be a sweet gesture, or a birthday, I love giving my favorite things as gifts.  Here are my top five books that I will be sharing with my girls for years to come.

I received this book from my sweet friend Lauren years ago and I still love looking at this collection of love letters.  The author scoured through homes, attics, closets, and, even cigar boxes to find America’s best love notes.  As we all know, relationships have their ups and their downs and within this perfectly thought out assortment you will see whispered pledges and some heartbreaks.  My favorite is at the end when the author reveals what happened to those relationships. Such a fun read and a great gift!

When I started designing lamps and really started to soar with my home design skills, I met a seasoned interior decorator.  She told me I needed to look through Domino, The Book of Decorating.  I love all the insiders secrets that are within this read.  It gives you the tools you need to design spaces that are both functional and fabulous.  Great gift for the friend who loves Interior Design!

One of my southern girlfriends always called me Coco, she said I stood out in a fabulous way.  I was so flattered by her remarks and when my birthday rolled around she gave me this sweet read.  It’s a book on practical life lessons from the worlds most elegant woman, Coco Chanel.  What girl wouldn’t want to explore Chanel’s philosophy?  This is a great gift for the fashion forward type of girl.

This book is filled with classic nursery rhymes for the Celine Squad.  This book is bound to make any new momma smile especially if she has a love for fashion.  I just love the fashion spin that’s incorporated into these rhymes.  This is the perfect gift for the new modern-day fashion forward type of mom.  I know you know some so remember this sweet treat for the lady dripping in Prada.

The Book of IF goes way back with my tight group of girls. We had many countless nights (before kid) sipping on wine, rocking on the porch, and tackling the hundreds of questions that were both comical and infuriating to us.  Today, I still use this book at dinner parties and love the laughs we get from it.  Great gift for someone willing to answer questions out of their comfort zone.
