Here’s a stocking stuffer to add to your holiday gift list
The DK Eyewitness Travel guide sells for about $25.
If you know someone who is planning a trip in the coming year to New York City, Paris, or London, here’s a stocking stuffer to add to your holiday gift list: an updated DK Eyewitness Travel guide.
For the uninitiated, DK is the U.K.-based publisher that publishes lavishly illustrated, site-intensive guides that often make you feel as if you’ve already visited a place even before you go. For example, the 2015 Italy guide contains 48 detailed maps, 322 illustrations, 1,521 photos, and is almost 700 pages.
The re-designed guides are geared to better integrate in-depth DK information graphics with normal tourists activities:
- Itineraries based on lengths of stay, regional destinations, or themes.
- DK Choice listings highlighting special recommendations for dining and accommodations.
- Country guides itineraries ranging from two to 14 days.
- Restaurants plotted on maps and listed with adjacent sights.
- More detailed street maps with subway stops and viewing points.
The guides sell for about $25, although the thicker Italian guide is $30. The books are quite hefty as well, so be sure there’s no hole in the toes of the stockings.

Ireland Gift Guide for the Creative
Custom Journal || Build Your Own Tiny Ireland || Printable Irish Saying || Cannon DSLR Camera
9. Custom Journal (affiliate) (non-affiliate). I think everyone going to Ireland should journal their trip. I wish I could shout it at the front of every airplane leaving for Dublin or Shannon. It is the best souvenir you could give yourself. I love these custom journals with cutouts of the country and your name or whatever you want inscribed. I think The Chastain Family’s Ireland Adventure sounds great…hint, hint.
10. Build Your Own Tiny Ireland (affiliate) (non-affiliate ). This may be the coolest, most unique thing on here. They are paper model kits to cut out and build your very own Ireland landmarks and townscapes. A woman from a small village in west Cork makes them. I want them all.
11. Printable Irish Saying (affiliate) (non-affiliate ). For those on a budget saving for their trip (us, too). There are a ton of Etsy shops with beautifully made printables. Search for your favorite Irish blessings, you will find one. Download, print at CVS (or wherever), buy a five dollar frame and voilà! Instant inexpensive gift. I’ve bought several over the years (mostly just for me).
12. Cannon DSLR Camera (affiliate) (non-affiliate). For most people, using their smart phone camera is all you need to take decent photos in Ireland. But if you’re looking for that WOW factor (and not-so secretly want someone else to take amazing photo souvenirs), this is totally the way to go. (Joey, I have the camera–but I’d love a new lens (affiliate) (non-affiliate).

With hundreds of full-color photographs, hand-drawn illustrations, and custom maps that illuminate every page, DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Florida truly shows you this state as no one else can.
This year we have decided to bring our four kids to Florida. It might be the last “official” family trip we are making – the kids are growing and one is finishing high school next year – and we have decided to bring the kids there for an extended period of time. My husband and I will also be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary this coming June and for us it will be a trip to go back where we had our honeymoon. Needless to say we are excited about the trip and look forward for our kids to discover Florida and Walt Disney World.
Planning is also a big part of my gifs and for a good plan you need good books. That’s why I was very interested in reviewing the Family Guide Florida, a book in the Eyewitness Travel series from DK. This guide will help me to plan a stress-free vacation so I can enjoy the time with my family when we are there. Oh in case you are wondering we will be driving with our RV in order to save money on the stay portion of the trip. We have decided to stay at some state parks which are very reasonable price wise even though they are not close to WDW.
The inside of the book has a map of Florida with color coded sections on it. Each color correspond to a section of Florida which can be quickly found in the book. For example, Orlando and the Park is in light orange color while Miami area is in pink. When you look at the side of the book, you can easily find the Orlando and the Parks section by the color light orange.
As I mentioned above the book is divided into sections – Miami, The Gold and Treasure Coasts, Orlando and the Parks, The Space Coast, The Northeast, The Panhandle, The Gulf Coast, The Lowed Gulf Coast/Everglades/Keys. Each section will have an introduction as well as the best things for families to see and do. A regional map will also indicate where the cities are located. Each section features a number of destination that will be fun to do with the family. Each sightseeing page also possess a Kid’s Corner section which highlight special information for them. The Kid’s Corner sections have been designed to involve children with games, cartoons and fun facts. You can also find places to stay at the end of each section of the book. However, I would have very liked to see some campsites that are reasonable in prices as well as maybe highlighting the state parks option. Finally at the end of the book a whole section can be found with maps from all the areas of Florida.
This book will definitively found it’s place in our luggage when we pack our RV. I am not leaving our home without it. It contains a ton of information about the places we are planning to visit – whether beaches or parks.
Family Guide Florida is available at your favorite bookstore, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.

Marriage (1818). By: Susan Edmonstoune Ferrier: Marriage (1818) is the shrewdly observant tale of a young woman's struggles with parental authority and courtship. (Paperback)
Susan Edmonstoune Ferrier
Published by Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States (2018)
New - Softcover
Language: English. Brand new Book. Marriage (1818) is the shrewdly observant tale of a young woman's struggles with parental authority and courtship. Like her contemporaries, Maria Edgeworth and Jane Austen, Susan Ferrier adopts an ideal of rational domesticity, illustrating the virtues of a reasonable heroine who learns to act for herself. This new edition features an introduction incorporating recent critical work on national identity and gender, and firmly situating the novel within the context of both Scottish literature and women's writing. Susan Edmonstone Ferrier (7 September 1782 - 5 November 1854) was a Scottish novelist. Her novels, giving vivid accounts of Scottish life and presenting sharp views on women's education, remained popular throughout the 19th century. Life: Susan Ferrier was the youngest daughter of Helen Coutts (1741-1797) (daughter of Robert Coutts, a farmer near Montrose) and James Ferrier (1744-1829), Writer to the Signet and one of the principal clerks of the Court of Session, in which office he was a colleague of Sir Walter Scott. Her father came from Linlithgow. She was probably born at Lady Stair's Close, Edinburgh, as the ninth of ten surviving children. The family moved in 1784 to 11 George Street in Edinburgh's New Town. Ferrier was privately educated. Through her family she came to know many notable Edinburgh people, including Sir Walter Scott and the novelist Henry Mackenzie. In 1797 her father took her in 1797 to Inveraray, home of his client and patron John Campbell, 5th Duke of Argyll. She became a friend of the family, especially of a granddaughter, Charlotte Clavering (died 1841), with whom she corresponded. Clavering was initially involved in the writing of Ferrier's first novel Marriage, although in the end her contribution to it was limited to the section entitled 'The History of Mrs Douglas'.Some of the letters between Ferrier and Clavering can be found in the front matter of a six-volume edition of the novels. East Morningside House The grave of Susan Ferrier, St Cuthberts Churchyard, Edinburgh Gatepost sign After her mother died Ferrier kept house for her father because her three older sisters were married. Like many well-to-do Edinburgh families, they took a house outside the city in the summer, East Morningside House, and while there she wrote The Inheritance. Although she still wished her work to appear anonymously, her identity was widely known by then. In 1811 Ferrier visited Walter Scott at Ashiestiel Farm and House on the banks of the River Tweed, near Clovenfords in the Scottish Borders, and again in 1829 and 1831 at his new house, Abbotsford. They enjoyed each other's company and he wrote of her: "This gifted personage besides having great talents has conversation the least exigeant of any author, female at least., simple, full of humour, and exceedingly ready at repartee, and all this without the least affectation of the blue stocking."He mentioned her in the same sentence as Maria Edgeworth and Frances Burney in 1825.Ferrier's account of the visits was eventually published posthumously in the magazine Temple Bar (1874). Ferrier's own tastes in literature appear in her correspondence. She was an admirer of Jane Austen and of Scott (although she had reservations about some works of his), but scorned John Galt and John Gibson Lockhart.The last of several visits to London was paid in 1830 to see an oculist, when she stayed for a few days at the villa of Lord Casilis in Isleworth, the model for the house known as Woodlands in Destiny. Brought up in the Church of Scotland, Ferrier joined the Free Church after the Disruption of 1843. She died on 5 November 1854 at her brother's house at 38 Albany Street, Edinburgh, and was buried with her family in St Cuthbert's Churchyard.The grave lies on a main dividing wall immediately north of the church. Ferrier's eldest brother married the sister of John Wilson, who wrote under the pseudonym Christopher North. Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New.
Hop into the Holiday Season with DK Canada Books
The holiday season is right around the corner. Have you begun the tasks of holiday gift shopping for your loved ones this year? Are there certain people on your list who love learning? DK Canada is the place to look for books on plenty of subjects for people to learn new things about our world. They asked us if we would like to have three books to help us hop into the holidays in a fun way. We could not wait to get the learning started!
Below are the three books my family received to enjoy for the holiday season:
Flora, Spice and Cook It book covers with holly berries.
Tip-toeing through the blooms
Plants, no matter their size, do so much for our world. Learning what makes them diverse is fabulous to learn. Flora takes readers on a fascinating journey through the plant world across our planet. Beautiful photos and wonderful descriptions help readers to find out about plants live and communicate with each other.
Flora book cover.
There is so much to learn about plants when reading Flora. Readers literally discover the wonder world of plants from their roots to their tips. This book is sectioned into different parts of the plant and shares information about what make each plant unique and fabulous.
One of the most fascinating things I learned about plants while reading Flora was about the importance of leaf size. Smaller leaves help to cut down on evaporation and heat loss for a plant. I did not know that large leaves help cool plants down in wet, tropical regions.
“Leaf Size” section of Flora.
Feeling the heat from the inside out
Sometimes, all we need to get warmed up is by consuming food or drinks to heat us from within. There are times that adding a hint of something special can help us feel cozy when the weather is chilly. Spice helps people take their cooking game up a notch with advice about creating spice blends and recipes. Readers also learn about each of the spices and their uses.
Spice book cover.
It was eye-opening to learn so much about the various types of spices and their flavour profiles. This book is helping us to understand which spices would work best together in a dish. The “Creating spice pairings and blends” section breaks down why spices would work well with other spices in language that is easy to understand.
I also love the “Spice Story” snippets for each spice that shares a brief history about a spice and its importance throughout history. An added bonus is the recipes in this book that focus on certain spices to up the flavour on these dishes.
“Sweet and Spicy Apple Pastry Rosettes” recipe in Spice book.
Kids + Cooking = FUN!
Kids love eating, but they also love lending a hand in the kitchen as well. Cook It helps parents bond with their child in the kitchen by providing 100 easy to cook recipes to create together. Basic instructions and cooking techniques are shared for young cooks to tie up their aprons to create meals from breakfast to dessert for their family to enjoy.
Cook It book cover.
I love that each recipe shows young cooks how to make each recipe in a simple way. The instructions and process photos make going through each dish easy. This title also gives quite a few variations on certain foods for kids to try.
After going through this book, the recipe my little chefs can’t wait to try first is the Mint Chocolate Pots. They both love chocolate and the mint flavour will add a flavour profile they want to try. They loved how easy the instructions are to whip up this tasty treat. We also have all of the equipment at home to get started!
Mint Chocolate Pots recipe from Cook It.
Hopping into the holidays with fun made easy
Overall, my family loved all of the books we received from DK Canada to hop into the holidays in a fun way. Flora let us see plants in a new and interesting way. Spice gave us the push to want to be more adventurous in the kitchen. Cook It is getting my little chefs excited about making meals for our family throughout the holiday season. Hopping into the holidays is made so easy with these DK Canada titles and are great holiday gift ideas to give this year. We are really happy to have them in our family’s home library.
