#GiftGuide 2018: Gifts For Any Occasion for the Book or Music Lover in your life

One week left to get that special someone in your life the perfect gift. If, like me, they consider themselves a bibliophile or a melophile, they want something of that nature.

I could recommend stationary or bookmarks until I’m blue in the face but book and music lovers want just that. Books or music. Without further ado, let’s dive in to some of my faves I’ve experienced this year that I think would make great gifts.

 

Time to turn it up with these Smart Cookie approved picks:

YoungBlood by 5SOS

This CD was on repeat for two weeks straight, and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone and everyone. It would make a great stocking stuffer for sure this Christmas.

Let The Trap Say Amen by Lecrae & Zaytoven

Whether you are new to the faith, curious about the faith, or saved and serious, Lecrae’s newest mixtape will have you turning up the volume and dancing in praise and worship.

I even workout to this mixtape often so the tempo is just the right amount of gospel and gangster.

Shawn Mendes by Shawn Mendes

The Canadian cutie started on vine and now his third album reached a whole new level of “fine.” With collabs with Julia Michaels and Ryan Tedder, this album shows a maturity beyond Mendes young years.

Moving on to some lit reads I had the pleasure of checking out this year…

WHEN HEARTS COLLIDE BOOK COVER

If you love romantic storylines mixed with Christian elements, this is a book you should definitely consider. The best part of this book is that it will still give you all the feels without leaving you feeling like you stepped out of line.

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

This book took an in-depth yet fictional look at how social media maximizes things that normally would be minimized, and how the big picture is all that you ought to focus on in the end.

If you know an author or musician who isn’t sure what to do about getting the word out about their book or album, maybe gift them with one of my service packages.

Lastly, some bookish people like to sport their love and appreciation for all things books and music, and you can support a bookish or educational cause with every purchase in my official merch shop Cookies For A Cause.
