Well, the countdown is on until Christmas. Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? If not, I highly recommend checking out DK Canada's holiday gift boutique. There are a lot of fantastic books on sale that can be terrific gifts for just about anyone on your list!
(I'm going to divulge some of the gifts I'm giving this year through this post, so hopefully they don't check my blog until after they get their gift!)
Middle loves LEGO - it's a passion of his. So, I was really excited to check out the LEGO Minifigures Year-by-Year book. This book explains the history of the iconic LEGO minifigure from the early designs to today's characters. Did you know that they originally toyed around with the idea of having girl mini-figs legs be different than that of their male counterparts? Also - that not every figure that's LEGO is considered a mini-figure?
The book is THICK and includes 3 bonus minifigures to add to your collection. As usual for a LEGO book - witty comments abound. Large, brightly coloured photography offset with excellent information make this book a keeper! I think he's going to love it.
Now, there's someone in my family who is a total geek. (Wait. Most of us are..... so phew! that will help me not draw attention to anyone in particular....). When I saw these two books on the holiday sales page, I knew they were instant gifts.
First off, let me say that BOTH of these books are works of art. They are GORGEOUS. Both of them came in their own protective box sleeve. The DC comics book has a special pocket inside the front cover with 2 art samples that you can frame or save. Inside these books you will be absolutely blown away by the quality of workmanship and information about everything to do with the history of these two comic industry icons.
Who is on your list still?
The boutique has something for art & music lovers, science enthusiasts, craft crazies, Whovians and Jedis, and kids of all ages. Check it out. Save 30% off all these titles.
