Holiday Gift Ideas -- Chicken Soup for the Soul Christmas Books (Review and Giveaway)


"Christmas is a magical time of year — a time of family, friends, and traditions. And all the joys, blessings, and excitement of the season are captured in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Christmas Magic with its 101 new holiday stories covering everything from finding the perfect Christmas tree, being with family, and seeing the wonder in a child's eyes to goodwill, love, and the true meaning of Christmas. This book will delight every reader, from the young to the young at heart, and bring back the magic of the holiday season. "Santa-safe" for kids!"

 *I have not had a chance to read this book, but based on other reader reviews, it looks like a great holiday book.  I will definitely be picking up a copy to read this holiday season. 


"Share the magic and joy of Christmas. You'll love these heartwarming, inspirational, and fun stories of Christmas miracles, family reunions, charity, the wonder of children, the joy of giving, and family and religious traditions. Most of these stories originally appeared in a limited edition book called Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tales of Christmas that was sold exclusively by Barnes & Noble in 2010."

My Thoughts:

I am halfway through this book, and have enjoyed each of the holiday themed stories I have read so far.  Books like this really get you in the holiday spirit and make you stop and think about the true meaning of the holidays, and about those important people in your life.  I can see this book being a great stocking stuffer gift, given to the person who had everything, or to a fan of Chicken Soup for the Soul books.  My mom has already requested to read this book, based on the cover art and my thoughts so far on the heartwarming and inspiring personal stories I have read.


I am excited about this giveaway, as three (3) lucky readers will win a copy of both books.  You can choose to read them both and then pass them along to family and friends to enjoy.  Or, why not give one or both copies as gifts this holiday season?  It is up to you, if you win, on what you want to do.  But, the first thing you have to do is enter the giveaway. :-)  Complete the entries on the Rafflecopter form below to enter.  Good luck!
