I can’t believe it’s November already and, gulp, time to start thinking about holiday shopping.  You know what my biggest gift-giving problem is?  The “small” gift.  You know, something thoughtful to give your hairdresser, cleaning person,  petsitter, pen pal, closet organizer, cubicle mate, etc.  These are the women in your life you want to recognize, but fiscal realities demand that the gift be budget friendly.

Well, have I got the perfect small gift idea for you!

It’s a book—inexpensive, easy to wrap, is never the wrong size, won’t break, won’t spoil, and can be used over and over.

THE TITLE:  The Amazing Adventures of Working Girl: Real-Life Career Advice You Can Actually Use

WHY IT’S GREAT:  Funny job stories, fantastic job advice, fast and easy to read.  (Plus: I am quoted in it.  Really!   I contributed one of the 28 Job Survival Tips.)

WHERE TO GET IT:  At any bookstore but please note it’s only ten bucks on Amazon.

Dare I mention that this book is also ideal for all your employed girlfriends and relatives?  In fact, Marie Claire magazine just selected it as one of their “Gifts for the Working Girl”-  And, natch, it’s most appropriate for anyone who’s looking for a job, or unhappy with her job.

It’s funny, wise, entertaining, and practical, with a good message for everyone.  Honestly, it would be a great book even I weren’t in it.
