Encouraging Hearts and Home: Gifts & Books

I was inspired to pick this week's features from last week's party based on the sheer number of gift idea & book posts.  I don't know about you but this time of year we are buying lots and lots of gifts-- gifts for mom, anniversary gifts, graduation gifts, and when I think of Mother's day gifts I also start thinking ahead to father's day gifts too.  I am always on the lookout for great gift ideas. I'm also always looking out for my next book idea (or really just constantly adding to my list of books I want to read) and so cannot help but click on every book suggestion post.  I have more features than usual this week but I hope no one will mind!

And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!  


Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

Some of MY favorites from last week:
