Gift Guide: Coffee Table Books

One of my absolute favorite gifts to receive is a coffee table book.  I’ve got quite the collection going and nothing makes me happier than being able to add to it every so often!  The genres I’m drawn to are; fashion, decor, and cooking.  I love stacking fashion books on my vanity and in my closet/office area.  I place all of my decor books around my living room and then put my cookbooks on display in the kitchen.

There’s nothing better than being able to sit out on my back patio with a cup of tea on a sunny day to flip through them – ahhh bliss!  I get so much inspiration and gather tons of ideas from each and every one!  I wanted to share stand outs from my collection that would make the perfect gift for someone special.
