Wrap it up!


At my office, my desk faces the glamorous and funny Annabelle Gurwitch, who always has some handy green mom tips. I wanted to share with you my favorite, because it’s adorable and eliminates the need to buy wrapping paper for the twelve billion birthday parties you’ll go to this year. You know that unwieldy stack of drawings and paintings you stuff under the bed or in a drawer or next to the washing machine? Use them as wrapping paper. Isn’t it so chic?

As for gift suggestions, I always give books. You can’t have too many. My close friend from childhood, Julie Fogliano, has written two children’s books: And Then It’s Spring and If You Want to See a Whale. They’re illustrated by Erin Stead (of A Sick Day for Amos McGee) and they’re sweet and surprising and gorgeous. If you haven’t read them yet, you should!

  1. These are beautiful books with charming text. Saddly I have just discovered Julie Fogliano, but…this books are jsut right and we’d love to get in touch with her to inquire if she’s available for an author event in Millbrook NY during July (next wonth during our Where’s Waldo celebration 2015).

    Hope you’ll give her my email address, I can’t find her number or address… Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!
