Book Friday 2018: Books For Gifting This Holiday Season
You know what used to stress me out most about the holidays?
Figuring out the gift situation.
What are we buying for whom and how are we delivering it?
The list was always long; the number of days too short.
A few years ago I decided it was time to streamline.
Now my holiday shopping consists of gifting either books, handmade products I purchase from friends, or coquito (Puerto Rican coconut holiday drink) that I make and bottle myself.
For kids, I try to gift holiday themed books or books aligned with their current interests. (Check out my round up of holiday books here: Holiday Books for Your Kids: From Thanksgiving to Día de Los Reyes).
When choosing books for adults, I do my best to gift signed copies of books written by my friends (win win win!).
Read on below for more on my gift giving strategy and for a round up of 2018 books written by my phenomenal friends!
I hope this lists inspires you to support these writers and/or your own creative friends this holiday season.

This year is no different--our team's competing to secure the National League Championship, so it's baseball baseball baseball all the time up in here!
