As we all know, the holidays can quickly become one of the busiest times of the year. Plan ahead so you can relax and enjoy spending time with your loved ones, and skip being “stressed out,” “frustrated” or just “too busy.” Consider how Usborne Books & More can help.

Do you have rain gutter bookshelves up in your home yet? They are a wonderful child-friendly way to entice kids to read more books by showing them the fronts of the covers, but keep them tidy and help beautify you walls all at the same time. Plus, they are an inexpensive DIY project! There are also other samples of this type of shelving here and I have found examples of using IKEA spice racks in this fashion as well.
You can change out the books to match the holiday decor and keep all the holiday books and cook books at the ready. I also love the idea of wrapping them and opening them on various days of Advent! Perhaps you can plan ahead to bake cookies on a particular day, so wrap the cook book you’ll be using in fun paper, put it on the rain gutter bookshelf as a decoration and mark it with that date. Then open it and make the cookies that day!
