There’s no doubt that this holiday season is tons better than last year’s! Am I right??? We don’t yet know how this new Omicron variant will impact our holiday celebrations, but let’s do what we can to stay safe and healthy! That includes our homes, of course.

My latest Forbes.com article, FAST FACTS video on YouTube and Clubhouse conversation share healthy home gift ideas for the holidays. You can read the article here.

BONUS HOLIDAY GIFT IDEA

Here are 10 reasons why books make awesome holiday gifts:

  1. You never have to worry whether a book will be the right size
  2. The recipient won’t outgrow a book gift
  3. You’re probably not going to run into any supply chain issues with book gifts
  4. You can support an author you like
  5. You can buy a book in person or online
  6. A book will entertain its recipient for hours or days
  7. A book can be shared by more than one member of a household
  8. A book can fill a recipient’s cherished library
  9. A book can be passed along through a free little library
  10. A book can help your recipient make his or her life better.

I invite you to consider my latest book for your favorite grownup gift recipient this year! You can find out why it has so many five star Amazon reviews here.
