Books…the best gift to give (or receive) under $35.00

Here are my choices for the best books to give this holiday season


“Yes Please” by Amy Poehler

A very honest and hilarious autobiography of the actress’s life. You will laugh out loud at many of the passages. Poehler writes in a very real and forthright voice and her stories are both entertaining and thoughtful.


“Parisian Chic” by Ines de la Fressange

This is every woman’s guide on how to dress and style yourself like a Parisian.  Ines de la Fressange,  a former runway model, the face of Chanel and clothing designer, offers advice on personal style from clothing to the home. There are tips from everyday makeup (never go without), to how to dress for a Black Tie event (mix flats with a ball gown), as well as where to shop in Paris. This book is a style bible!


The MOST Of Nora Ephron

Nora Ephron, the witty poignant author, screen writer, director and foodie, has been celebrated in one larger than life book. Here you will find excerpts from her most famous screenplays,  “Heartburn”, “When Harry Met Sally,” and her last play, “Lucky Guy.” Her writing resonates in humor and honesty, and touches on serious subjects such as love, divorce and death. This is a book that endures no matter the number of readings.


She Matters by Susanna Sonnenberg

Sonnenberg’s life is defined by the women she has befriended along the way. The idol, the betrayer, the travel companion, the mentor, the rescuer, the guide, the list is endless. This book is both illuminating and comforting; a must read for every woman. You will feel enlightened, empowered and proud of your gender!
