Holiday Gift Guide: For the Bookworm & Music Lover

Gift Ideas for the Books & Music


TGIF! I had planned to have this gift guide for you yesterday, but our internet was out for over 24 hours. I actually opened a book instead of my nightly scrolling. Speaking of books, today’s gift guide is for the bookworm and music lover in your life. These gift guides are so much fun to put together. My own wish list is full of these items!

Check back tomorrow for my usual weekend roundup. The holiday sales are already kicking into gear and I’ve got some to share with you!


one: when I was in san francisco last year, I would have loved to have this book, see san francisco by blogger sf girl by bay, to help me navigate the city. arranged by neighborhood and with beautiful photography, this book would be great for anyone planning a trip or in love with san francisco.

two: one of the best albums we’ve discovered this year, ben howard’s i forget where we were has been on repeat.

three: the most widely anticipated album of the year, adele’s 25 will be released next tuesday. gift it to anyone on your list from young to old, everyone loves adele.
