Prudent Advice for Every Woman
Thoroughly modern and atypically witty hardback.
Many women have spent years lamenting they werent given a handbook at birth. Jaime Morrison Curtis lamented there was no handbook either, so she took it upon herself to create one for her baby daughter. But the advice in this beautiful and witty anthology is full of helpful tips for women of all ages.
With 500 lessons, observations, and tidbits, theres plenty to learn and to share. For instance, Theres no substitute for baking soda or the warning that colouring your hair is an ongoing commitment. This book was published in November 2014 and was written by Jaime Morrison Curtis.
For the women in your life, this hardback book makes a wonderful birthday present, Christmas present, or Mothers Day gift. Its an especially useful and lovely present for young ladies and teenage girls. We recommend pairing this book with A Grumpy Guide to Life for your meme-loving daughter. Or perhaps pair with 50 Ways to Wear a Scarf for the fashionable young lady.

Ready to find some Christmas presents for your teenage sister?
Christmas is a magical time of year when sibling rivalries can be swept under the rug and you can make amends with your teenage sister. What better way to make amends than with some thoughtful Christmas presents?
As a sibling, you can buy Christmas presents for your sister that gives you the advantage of insight that nobody else in her life has. The other advantage is, of course, that you most likely grew up or are growing up in the same household which gives you the advantage of having a strong shared experience.
That shared experience is part of what bonds you as siblings. Do you remember an activity you and your sibling enjoyed together as children? For instance, did you and your sister ride dangerously down the stairs in a laundry hamper? If you did, a funny gift might be a laundry hamper! The Prudent Advice for Every Woman Book is sure to get a laugh this Christmas, especially for newlyweds who will see the humour inside.
Are you older than your teenage sister?
If youre older and have already left your parents nest, you may have gained some perspective about your family. This perspective on your home life can certainly help as you try to find the right Christmas presents for your teenage sister. And even if you havent typically gotten along with your sister, now is a good time to let her know that youre still there for her if she needs you.
A good strategy for buying Christmas presents is to support your sisters aspirations. If she wants to become a chef, give her a cookbook covering a variety of classic recipes. If she wants to be an artist, find her the right coloured pencils, pastels, or paints. Even if her aspiration is to marry Ryan Gosling, you can give her a Ryan Gosling colouring book!
Whether she continues to pursue those aspirations later in life doesnt matter. What shell remember is your encouragement and support.
Do you have a tight budget?
If youre a teenager, in college, or perhaps younger than your teenage sister, you might not have much money to spend on Christmas presents. Thats okay. You can still give her some killer gifts! For example, consider giving your sister a beautiful picture frame holding a photo of you together as kids. For even more fun, recreate the picture with your sibling and give her both photos.
Believe it or not, you might also consider taking her out to eat or out for a coffee. Even if shes a moody teen, shell most likely enjoy the chance to spend time with you outside of the house or away from your parents. Though it isnt exactly the same as giving her Christmas presents on Christmas morning, its just as meaningful.
A final tip:
Even if you dont get along with your sister, use this time of year to get to know her better.
