Stuff Your Stocking With... Things To Keep You Warm + a GIVEAWAY!

With Christmas just a few weeks away I am teaming up with Jen from Pop! Goes the Reader to bring you some fab holiday gift giving ideas for your favorite reader.  Visit our blogs every Thursday this month as we feature some stocking stuffer ideas paired with books that we feel should be on anyone's Christmas Wish List.  I love this time of year, and I especially love gift giving.  I hope our posts give you some ideas on what to give others, and maybe even add to your very own Christmas Wish List (feel free to link your loved ones to our posts, hehe).

For this week's STUFF YOUR STOCKING, I decided to go with the theme "To Keep You Warm".  Even though we don't get a true winter down here in Texas, we have our occasional chilly days, and that calls for a comfy scarf or cute beanie.  I gathered up a few items that I would love to see in my stocking, so I'm betting someone you may need a gift for would like them as well.  Also, you can never go wrong with a Starbucks gift card as a stocking stuffer!

To Keep You Warm

I've also got some steamy Adult Romance suggestions to keep you warm, too.  Pairing one of these books with an item above would be an excellent gift to keep any reader warm this Holiday season!

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean | goodreads | amazon | B&N
Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas | goodreads | amazon | B&N
About Last Night by Ruthie Knox | goodreads | amazon | B&N
Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas | goodreads | amazon | B&N
On Dublin Street by Samantha Young | goodreads | amazon | B&N

Both Jen and I will be selecting 2 books that we will be featuring all month long to give away to 1 winner, each.  This giveaway is open to our international friends, just make sure Book Depository ships to you!  We'll announce the winners after Christmas, at the close of our feature.  Best of luck!

  1. I'll always remember when I woke up on Christmas morning to find a wooden play house in the backgarden, brought by Santa! It was brilliant. (I later found out my Dad and a few neighbours had been building it the week previous and my Mum had just kept the curtains shut and I hadn't noticed. Doh!)

  2. My hubs buys me practical gifts that he has heard me mention. Bath robe & I robot vacuum were two surprise items that were perfect listens that year.

  3. I will always remember the Christmas my sister gave me a coffee cup that said "My Godmother and Me" to ask me to be her unborn daughter's godmother. :)

  4. When I was a kid I was really into dolls/babies and one year my parents got me one that was literally as big as I was. I believe someone had to sew it special clothes because it was just ginormous. And that's what popped into my head for some reason. I think I played with it for maybe a week and then I was so done with it. ha.

  5. As a Canadian gloves, scarves and mittens are a staple of my wardrobe, so I was excited to see the theme of your post today :) There's nothing like finding a piece that keeps you warm and comfortable and is fashionable too! Speaking of, I found the cutest set on Modcloth last night - Have you seen the 'Flair to Flaunt' items? They're white with multicoloured bows and are just about the cutest things I've ever seen. Of course, I would find these after I placed a massive order from the site *Facepalm*

    Note to self: I desperately need to make the time to read Sugar Daddy. Between you and The Book Barbies my curiosity about this novel has tripled. Something to strive for in the new year :D

  6. What a fun idea! I've been utilizing lots of these things to keep warm this winter.

    Love the list of books to keep you warm, too! I really need to get around to reading a Ruthie Knox book...

  7. My most memorable gift is when my parents gave me bicycle on Christmas day when I was about.. 5 years old. In the morning, I went to meet Santa Claus and told him that I wanted a bicycle and woosh, when I got home, I found the bicycle under the Christmas tree. I thought "Oh Santa works so fast!" later I knew that my parents actually had bought the bike before and put it in my aunt's house. When I went to meet Santa, my aunt delivered the bicycle to my house.

  8. I do love the days it gets so cold we get to wear scarves, gloves, and beanies! Oh, Texas. :) I really need to read Sugar Daddy soon!! Racquel let me borrow it months ago, along with the sequel. Sigh! SOON!

  9. I received the perfect book from a great guy.
