Find your Inspiration and Get Organized for a Truly Wonderful Christmas! 

The magic of Christmas comes from something intangible: a mix of anticipation, childhood memories, the smell of freshly baked goodies, the chatter of family members, the joy in the children’s eyes when they unwrap presents and from feeling grateful and being involved in festive activities.

From a more practical point of view, the secret of a perfect Christmas lies also in careful planning and organizing.  

Are you constantly trying to remember every person you need to buy a gift for? Your husband, your parents, your child’s teacher, your sister-in-law, your best friend… the list goes on and on.
What about the parties you are hosting or attending?
What about all the fun things you want to do for yourself and with your loved ones during the festive season?
How are you going to keep everything organized and not fall into the trap of overspending?

* November and December planning and activities (plus templates: Christmas Gift Tracker, Holiday Bucket List, December Calendar Planner, Christmas Parties and Events Planner, Christmas Card Mailing List, Online Order Tracker)

My Review:

Lia Manea just came out with her second book, “The Christmas Helper – Get Inspired and Organized for Magical Holidays”, and it is just as good as her first book–if not better!

I am always looking for holiday-inspired books around the holidays, so I was really excited when Lia contacted me and asked me to review her newest book. I really enjoyed her first book–Find That Perfect Gift–(you can read my review here), so I was expecting to enjoy The Christmas Helper just as well.

I sat down and read it in one read, because, it was so easy to read, yet interesting. I love short little books like this that pack a whole bunch of information and helpful tips into just a few short chapters. I have said many times before that I absolutely hate books that drone on and on to teach just teach a few principles. “The Christmas Helper” wax the complete opposite of this. It was the perfect length to satisfy the want I have sometimes to read something short with a nice cup of coffee (or Peppermint Mocha) or tea! I sometimes want just a short little book that I can read easily in one sitting while I am enjoying a short meal–or hot drink.

Not only did it satisfy this want, but I got a whole bunch of helpful tips for the holidays as well. Lia writes gift-getting and wrapping tips, game and craft ideas, as well some festive holiday recipes and even home décor tips. Could she have packed anything else in it?

Her writing style was awesome–she got straight to the point and didn’t waist anytime getting there, and opened some festive spirit to the reader in the process.

Whether you are struggling with trying to find the right gift, or entertain guests, or even just get some nice holiday tips, “The Christmas Helper” is the book for you! Get into a festive mood and acquire some knowledge in the process! Now is the perfect time to read “The Christmas Helper”.
