Give Mom Her “Me Time”

For the do-it-all supermom, coloring books are an ideal gift because they offer peace, relaxation, and mindfulness in just minutes—especially when quiet minutes alone are at a premium. She will find poetic tranquility in Color the Road Not Taken, quirky amusement in Look Up Coloring Book, and grand inspiration in the Ultimate Coloring series.

Armchair Inspiration

Your aunt and uncle love to wax nostalgic about the good old days, before life became all about “ASAP.” Check out The Greatest Brick Builds to see amazing LEGO constructions, A History of the World in 500 Walks for rambling adventures across centuries of culture, and Beatles: Here, There, and Everywhere to relive the story of the lads from Liverpool who changed music forever.

Dinnertime Done Right

When it’s Dad’s turn to prepare dinner, give him a much-needed boost with cookbooks such as Fried Chicken & Friends, which contains 100 hearty Southern-style recipes that will please a crowd—and impress Mom as well!

Explore Tolkien’s Fantasy World

Any young adult who adores The Lord of the Rings will get a kick out of our illustrated Tolkien reference and activity books, including Heroes of Tolkien, The Battles of Tolkien, and A Bestiary of Tolkien Coloring. Filled with fascinating details about the characters and events in the novels, these books will infuse fans with a deeper appreciation for the genius of J. R. R. Tolkien as they become experts on the lore of Middle-earth.
