The Works Christmas Gift Guide

As both a parent and a teacher I’m a big fan of books as gifts – you can’t go wrong!  

I’ve been shopping with The Works since I was a trainee teacher 16 years ago (how can it possibly be that long?) and I always enjoy a good browse in store.  

This year I was sent a voucher for The Works and challenged to find presents for all the family so here goes . . . 


I was spoiled for choice when it comes to our LEGO loving, superhero obsessed boy.  Ben is discovering a real love of reading at moment so I know he’d be thrilled with these: 

Lego DC Universe Batman Visual DictionaryThe LEGO Movie – The Essential Guide or Lego Star Wars – The Yoda Chronicles


Chloe is just starting out on her reading journey so a selection of Julia Donaldson’s Oxford Reading Tree books would be a great gift.  

Of course, like many girls of her age she really does love Frozen and The Works offer a whole range of Frozen themed goodies this year from books to wrapping paper or even a skipping rope!


Amy loves books and is slowly learning to be more careful with them but I’d still rather give her board books for now so that I know they can withstand her toddler enthusiasm!  The Works have a fab range of board books including favourites like Mog, That’s not my . . . and Dear Zoo 


Dave has been a massive fan of Jamie Oliver since he first started cooking properly in his mid twenties and has quite a collection of his books.  As we’re both trying to be more healthy, it makes perfect sense to treat him (and me) to the latest Jamie Oliver – Everyday Super Food

So there you go, something for everyone in The Works this Christmas!  What do you mean what about me?  I’ll just be enjoying the ten minutes peace I get whilst everyone’s got their heads in their new books!
