Inspiring Gifts for Women and Girls

Holiday Gift Guide 2018

Welcome to Part I of The 2018 Book Lover’s Holiday Gift Guide! I knew the first gift guide I wanted to do was for all the great inspirational stuff about awesome women that’s been cropping up.

Let’s face it, this has been a tough couple of years. A lot of progress has been made, it’s clear there’s still a long way to go. I think most people could use a little more inspiration and less cynicism to get through their days. So, without further ado, here’s my list of some of the best inspiration gifts to get for the women, young ladies and girls around you!
