Holiday Gift Guide Feature
With technology putting everything like books and games on screen for us to read and play by touch, there are many subjects and genres of such books that are meant to be in print and to be handy for us up on a shelf. DIY books on large pages and education books that can be marked on pages are examples of books that are much better in print than on screen. With the Holidays coming, chances are you have some people on your list that are hard to buy for. Here are some fun and unique gift ideas from Quarto Publishing that are sure to please those on your list.
Books for the Do-It-Yourself Home Owner
Quarto Publishing has so many titles that work well for these DIY-ers. You can find books with print and large images in the subjects of gardening, home improvement, agriculture, antiques & collectibles, architecture and even pets or animals.
The Black & Decker Home Planner & Logbook is an excellent choice for any new home owner or one who likes to do their own work around the home and yard. Not only can you keep track of all the work you put into your home, but it has tips and education to help you plan for improvements needed. This is great to pass on to the new owner if you ever sell or have on hand when you need to repaint or do flooring so you remember what you used when you originally remodeled. It also will help with maintenance such as notes on warranties or dates you last changed your furnace filter. This is a book that will get used once gifted.
Books for crafters and DIY
There are just as many options for the Crafter and DIY’er to help them enhance their skills and hobbies. You can find books on crochet, coloring books or art books for kids and even project books. The 5-Gallon Bucket Book: DIY Projects, Hacks & Upcycles is a lot of fun. I had no idea or perhaps it is that I lack the creativity to make so many useful things by using a 5-Gallon bucket. This is a lot of fun for someone who loves to be original and upcycle products.
Books for Families
Quarto Publishing has many books fun for the entire family from gift sets to coloring books and family relationships and art. I received the book Barnyard Kids: A Family Guide For Raising Animals. If you have a family to buy for that you know are animal lovers, they will enjoy this book. Whether they raise animals from chickens to goats or just love to become educated, this is such a great book. They learn how to feed the animals, what to feed them, habitats, common illnesses and much more. We own a goldfish, but my son and I love choosing an animal and reading all about it. He learns so much in this book about farm animals and pets.
