FOR NEW OR PREGNANT MOM.
Mama Knows Breast ($14.95) by Andi Silverman is a perfect gift for a pregnant friend, who is planning on breast feeding. The book is full of facts and practical advice, but it doesn’t preach – it’s written more with a humorous note for a new mom to enjoy.

ANY MOM.
Every mom should read Jenna McCarthy’s The Parent Trip: From High Heels and Parties to Highchairs and Potties ($11.66). It’s a great not-so-serious book for any mom, or mother-to-be. Real life advice spun together with humorous self-expression by a mother-of-two, superstar fashion writer Jenna McCarthy. Thanks a lot Jenna – you made me look like a weirdo at NYC subway, laughing out loud and being afraid I’d wet my pants in public. (Yeah, the book is that funny.)

PROFESSIONAL MOM.
Talking of peeing (sorry to grouse you out during Holidays and all, but this is what all moms talk about sometimes in form or another)… another funny book for moms is Peeing in Peace: Tales and Tips for Type A Moms ($9.95) by Beth Feldman and Yvette Manessis Corporon. Real life advice spiced with humor for working moms by two successful professional women behind Rolemommy.com.

FOR WOMEN & MEN.
Being a parent is serious business, that can also put your relationship in a hard spot sometimes. The Problem with Women … is Men: The Evolution of a Man’s Man to a Man of Higher Consciousness ($14.95) is Charles J. Orlando’s first book, and not your traditional relationship book. He interviewed hundreds of women and men and based her witty advice on his own experience as well as the research he did. Great read for anyone who wants to succeed in her/his relationship.

WINE LOVER.
And if sipping wine with your loved one or to accompany your dinner is for you, I would like to recommend Gary Vaynerchuk’s 101 Wines: Guaranteed to Inspire, Delight, and Bring Thunder to Your World ($13.57) to give you ideas of wines to taste and that give bang for your buck. You can also watch Gary at Wine Library TV.

FOR WOMEN.
When you need a break and want a great vacation book, I love Karen Quinn’s books. Her Holly Would Dream ($11.90) came out earlier this year, and it is a perfect NYC biz girl novel with world travel, action & romance, and gives you a few good laughs too.
