It’s that time of year again—we’re all making our lists and checking them twice. I love the feeling when I give someone a gift and the expression on their face lets me know I hit the mark when they open it. But sometimes, actually finding that perfect gift is a bit of a challenge. There are so many options to choose from, and narrowing it down can get a bit overwhelming at times.
However—my series of Gift Guides are here! I’m sharing gift ideas to help you narrow down your search, without having to spend hours scrolling your phone or running in and out of crowded stores.
First up in my Gift Guide Series is the Sophisticated Storyteller.
Who is The Sophisticated Storyteller?
This is the woman in your life who loves a story—old or new. She’s always up on the latest books, but loves a classic, too. She’s creative, whether she’s busy writing her own stories or hosting an exquisitely-themed book club gathering. She knows how to tell fascinating stories, and loves little luxuries.
What to buy The Sophisticated Storyteller?
Local Bookstore Gift Card
You can’t go wrong with a gift card to a local bookstore. If you happen to be local to Oklahoma, Commonplace Books is my favorite!
The Penguin Classic Clothbound box set of the complete works of Jane Austen will look stunning on the shelf of any book lover. Rooms of Their Own: Where Great Writers Write is the perfect coffee table book for those who love to write. And every book club hostess needs a copy of Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails With a Literary Twist.

Stocking Stuffers and Hostess Gifts
If you need just a little something to stuff a stocking or give to your hostess, this coffee table book candle, this set of pencils for writers, this adorable bookshelf mug, or a pack of fountain pens are all excellent options.
A few more ideas…
If you didn’t find the perfect gift linked above, what about a first (or rare) edition of a beloved book, a gift certificate for a creative writing workshop, or a monthly book subscription box?
