12 Days of Christmas: Day 1 With Andi From Andi’s ABCs

Hello Readers!

Welcome to Day One of my first ever holiday feature – 12 Days of Christmas! Today, I’m so very happy to host fellow blogger and friend, Andi from Andi’s ABCs. Today, she’ll be talking about, not only one of my favorite reads, but one of hers as well! Before hopping into this post, I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Andi for participating, and for being awesome! For more of Andi’s awesome-ness make sure to check out her blog: Andi’s ABCs!



The Book

 Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins


Guys, you know I adore this book. I’ve read it 9 times in 4 years! I have like 6 different copies/versions of it myself. I HAVE in fact bought it for a gift numerous times and have lent it out to friends. You can get a better feel good contemporary than Anna and the French Kiss.

The Extras



There is a scene in the book where Meredith and Anna go and buy macarons. The descriptions used in the book make you crave the tiny pastry miracles of deliciousness. Figure I will save my giftee the trouble and give them some.

Canadian/American Flag Pin


Anna has a huge hang-up about being American in Paris. She is taught by a very smart boy that she is being silly and he does it in an adorable way. Making my gift recipient fit right in.

Movie Tickets

My girl Anna is a movie buff. She loves going to the cinema and seeing any and all films. I would totally give movie tickets in my Anna themed gift.

Left-Handed Notebook


With the love the cinema, Anna also writes film reviews. She is always taking notes on the movies she sees. And since she is left-handed she sometimes has trouble with spirals and spines. It’s only fitting to give a left-handed notebook.

Anna quote Tank Top


This tank top says it all. I don’t need to say why this is part of the gifts at all. (PS, I LOVE MINE!!!!)
