On the tenth day of book gifting, Rural Mom suggests Jeeves and the Wedding Bells - Audiobook CD
I love a great work of fiction and often love them even more on audio! The tenth pick in our Rural Mom 12 Days of Book Gifting Suggestions is one book I'm truly glad I had the chance to listen to. The verbal talents of Julian Rhind-Tutt really enhance the story, bringing rip-roaring life to the engaging prose of author Sebastian Faulks.
There's something irresistible about a cookie in a holiday shape. They simply scream "here I am, holiday cheer in a cute cookie form, now enjoy me!"
Sour cream sugar cookies are a favorite to make as they are easy to shape and bake into rich, puffy melt-in-your mouth goodness. You can quickly mix up a batch and bring them with to gathering or display on your own holiday dessert table. Whether you stick with traditional vanilla flavoring or opt for adding peppermint extract, everyone will enjoy this holiday favorite.

On the ninth day of book gifting, Rural Mom suggests Journal Your Way: Designing & Using Handmade Books
I honestly wish I'd discovered this book earlier as everyone on my holiday shopping list would be getting hand-crafted journals this year, but they'll just have to receive them for birthdays and other celebrations throughout the year! The ninth pick in our Rural Mom 12 Days of Book Gifting Suggestions is such a cool crafting guide, one I know I'll turn to again and again!

Have you ever found yourself the victim of an empty toilet paper roll holder in a bathroom stall, hoping and praying someone would rescue you with that much needed square?
Now, imagine the same scenario, only you are stuck in the bathroom of your aunt's home and the only way to get a replacement roll is to holler out to your relatives in hopes someone will hear you... and worse yet, figure out the least embarrassing way for them to deliver the toilet paper to you. There's simply no easy way to do that!

If there's a candy that stands out from my childhood, it's certainly Fannie May. Every holiday we would anxiously await the chance to choose our favorite from the assortment on Christmas Eve, because we knew it was the one decadence my parent's were sure to receive each year from our uncle (or to splurge on for for family, regardless, if he decided to send something else!)
My brother and I generally fought over the Trinidads (rich dark chocolate covered in a golden, toasted coconut shell) and I hoped for a chocolate-covered cherry the next day, if my dad left any to spare!
