Best Humor Books for Holiday Giving, plus an EPIC #Giveaway

designMy favorite gift to give or to get is a book. We have thousands of books in our house and on our digital readers. Reading is my favorite hobby and I spend some time with a book every day.

One of the best genres for gift books is humor. I’ve been lucky enough to read some great humor books over the last few years since a lot of my favorite bloggers are also published humorists.

I hope this list will help you pick the right gift for someone you love, or just to feed your own reader.

All links are affiliate links. Your purchase provides me with a few cents for book money, so thanks in advance!

Erma Bombeck is the touchstone for all female humorists to this day. She’s earned a place in my heart with her gentle domestic humor.

This book, Forever, Erma,  is my go-to on trips when I need something to distract myself from thinking about the engines falling off the plane mid-flight.

This collection of Erma’s best newspaper columns has me alternately chuckling or teary, sometimes in the same minute.

I’m lucky enough to call Tracy Beckerman a friend, and I hope you’ll love her books as much as I do.

Her sophomore work, Lost in Suburbia, is the story of how Tracy migrated from Manhattan to the burbs of New Jersey.

Can Tracy stay cool in a world of minivans and mom jeans? Is that even possible? Let me know if you find out.

Heather Alexander’s book, Secrets of the Mommyhood is a great book to give the new or expecting mommy in your life.

Heck, even an “old mom” like me with seven thousand cumulative years of parenting experience will like it.

Heather tells it to you straight: what’s going to happen to your body, what baby equipment you need and what’s a waste of money–everything you need to know, even if you don’t want to!

I have an autographed copy of Anna Lefler’s The Chick-tionary on my bedside table right now. This book contains all the definitions of words and phrases every chick needs to know.

Lobster heels? Jorts? Cujo syndrome? How can you avoid these things if you don’t even know what the are?

The tight, crisp writing makes this book is as informative as it is fun.

You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth is THE humor anthology of the year.

Complied from the best writing from the people behind the edgy humor site, In the Powder Room, these essays are a humorous take on the contemporary lives of women.

This one may not be for your mama, but I think you will really like it.

So now you have things you want to read but nothing to read them on? Are you in the market for some fabulous gifts for Christmas or Hanukkah? Well, my friend, do I have a giveaway for you!
