As our unopened advent calendar days begin to dwindle, and all of the gifts are hidden and ready for wrapping, there is one last element that often slips our minds before santa shimmies his way down our chimneys: stocking stuffers. If your gift ideas are growing slim, check out MEDIA CONNECT’s suggested stocking stuffers for 2013!
“Last Christmas I got my grandmother A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin (Bantam, 1996), and she fell in love with it, so much so that she purchased the next two in the series and speed read through them this year. So, this year for Christmas I will be stuffing her stocking with the fourth book in the series, A Feast for Crows (Bantam, 2005). Yes, my grandmother, who can be found frequently in the kitchen baking fresh batches of cookies, is also a fan of one of the most violent book series of our time.”
—Chris Ulluth, Assistant to the Publicity Team
“Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh (Touchstone, 2013). It’s based on Brosh’s hit blog and from what I’ve heard the book is just as funny!”
— Johanna Dickson, Digital Publicist
“Alice Munro’s most recent book of short stories, Dear Life (Vintage, 2013), will be a great gift since she just won the Nobel Prize.”
—Rianna Folds, Assistant to the Publicity Team, MC DC.
“A Delicate Truth: A Novel by John le Carre (Viking, 2013) is another spy book from the popular author, best-known for his Smiley books and The Spy Who Came In From The Cold.”
—Steve Matteo, Publicity Manager
Adulting: How to Becoming a Grown-up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps by Kerry Williams Brown (Grand Central, 2013) makes a great stocking stuffer for the recent grads/new to the workforcees on your list. It’s hilarious and enjoyable at any age!
—Karissa Hearn, Publicist
“My nephew will be getting The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen, illustrated by Daniel X. Hanna (Scholastic, 2008), because who does want to spread the ‘drearie-wearies’!”
—Kristin Clifford, Director of MC Satellite
