#12Days: Davina McCall’s bookish Christmas gifts

Today we’re joined by the fabulous Davina McCall as she shares the book she’d recommend to give as pressies this year.

Where Willy Went, Nicholas Allan

OK, so sooner or later, every parent is going to be faced with the tricky question of where babies come from. This book is the perfect way to start that conversation. It’s funny and very sweet and it’s completely honest without giving too much information. A must for anyone with curious kids!


Blink: the Power of Thinking Without Thinking, Malcolm Gladwell

I’ve always believed in intuition. In fact, I honestly used to think that I was psychic. Blink showed me how intuition really works by explaining just how much goes on behind the scenes in our heads and how important the subconscious is in making decisions. Read it and learn to trust your instincts.



How to Be a Woman, Caitlin Moran

This book literally made me laugh and cry so hard. Amazing. Caitlin Moran picks apart all of the pressures and expectations that our society throws at women. Everything she says is completely spot on and completely hilarious. Perfect for a Christmas giggle. I wish it had been around when I was younger.



The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin

We all want to be happy, but not many of us take the time to work out what that really means. Gretchen Rubin spent a year reading and researching and trying new things to work out exactly what happiness meant to her and how she could be happy. A really thought-provoking and inspiring read. Happy (happy) Christmas!


Cook Happy, Cook Healthy, Fearne Cotton

An important part of loving yourself is learning to really love food. Fearne knows this and her new cookbook makes it super easy to make delicious food with healthy ingredients. It’s designed with busy mums in mind, and it’s soooooo beautiful … perfect pressie for anyone who loves good food. Yum.



Psst, keep your eyes peeled on the 13th December for a huge book bundle giveaway, including Lessons I’ve Learned!


Lessons I’ve Learned is out now in hardback, audio and ebook
