For the past two weeks, the Chronicle Elves have been hard at work helping you find the best books for everyone on your holiday shopping list. But there are so many things we love that we didn’t have room to include! So today, for our last round-up of recommendations, we decided to give a shout-out to the “non-books” that we publish. Craft Kits, Games, Journals, Decks… these formats may not be traditional books, but they sure do make wonderful gifts!
Today’s special: 30% off your purchase! Use promo code ASKANELF09 at checkout.
*Expires on Monday, 12/21, so be sure to wrap up your shopping this weekend!
Have a holly jolly holiday!
xoxo, The Chronicle Elves
