Ginger Mum Column: Books to gift your loved ones this Xmas

Celebrate:MK lifestyle columnist Ginger Mum has picked out some amazing books to help you give the gift of growth and knowledge…

Happy Christmas guys, who is excited?

I sure am! After the debacle of pandemic restrictions last year, I cannot wait to spend this festive season with my nearest and dearest, finally.

My kids can’t wait to spend Christmas with their granny and grandpa again! I hope you all have great plans with your families.

This year, I want to give the gift of growth and knowledge as well as all things sparkly and shiny, which is why I want to share with you a few precious book recommendations for gifting.

For our youngsters, whose mental health is often neglected in society, I discovered new local author and mother Holly Nixon, who has created a wonderful mindfulness workbook for ages 7+.

It is 74 pages of motivational prose designed to allow our kids and ourselves to understand them better and give them an emotional outlet by utilising the engaging strategies in this empowering little package.

My next must-have book rec is our bona fide local celeb Candice Brathwaite, who has penned her second bestseller-to-be, Sista Sista – the follow up to her debut Times bestseller ‘I am not your baby mother’.

It’s an emotional must-read. Her books provide us with the tools to be more informed, understanding and inclusive humans.

Sadly this stuff isn’t taught enough in schools. I love seeing her books front and centre in Waterstones in
Midsummer Place aka ‘the new bit’.

Last up, for hardcore (definitely not for the fainthearted) dating and mating advice, this is your gal.

@lalalaletmeexplain on Instagram is your go to as a qualified social worker & dating/relationships columnist for OK! magazine and you can pre-order her book on her page link on Instagram or Amazon for the big February drop.

As we go into 2022, I’m not going down the route of New Year, new me. That said, there’s nothing wrong
with a bit of streamlining to be our best selves, so a little self care gift would be one of these elegant life planners (below) from Martha Brook London. It’s packed with all I need to make life admin a joy.

Happy New Year to you all, see you in 2022!
