10 Books That Will Form The Perfect Gift This Christmas


What better gift is there for a Career Girl than a good book? Whether we are talking a good romance or a book that motivates and inspires, you can absolutely never go wrong!

We give you a small selection of must-read books for girls that are the perfect present to give to all the ambitious Career Girls in your life.


#1 The Have It All Woman

This book is perfect for the girl who needs to be inspired! In this book, writer Susan Sly shows how you can have it all by sharing her secrets on how she did it. After being over $100,000 in debt, battling MS, losing her business and a  failed marriage, this Power Woman was able to turn it all around and have it all.


The absolute must-read for every Career Girl. It is no secret that we are obsessed with this book in the CGD HQ and love writer and Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso. This amazing book includes her unique path to success and wake-up calls we all should hear at least once in our life. This book is perfect to give to any ambitious girl who love to be motivated and inspired.

#3 The Millionaire Maker: Act, Think, and Make Money the Way the Wealthy Do

The title made us a bit sceptical, but the approach that writer Loral Langemeier takes can help everyone, no matter what your current job is. She shows how you can maximize your situation, no matter if you are a teacher, lawyer, gardener or anything else. With this book you can take almost any job to the ‘next’ level.

#4 Eat, Pray, Love

The best book for all girls with Wanderlust who just want to lose themselves in a book. After a dramatic divorce, the author (Elizabeth Gilbert) goes traveling for a year where she tries to find herself. She goes to Italy to enjoy life and food (eat), spends time in India to work on her spiritual life (pray) and falls in love in Bali (love).

#5 Sex and the City

Does this one even need explanation? One that absolutely cannot be missing in this list. Writer Candace Bushnell takes us inside the world of the busy life of young beautiful women living in New York. Your friend has probably already seen the series 1000x, but don’t let her miss out on the book version, that is as hilarious, witty and sometimes shocking as the series.

#6 The Carrie Diaries Complete Collection: The Carrie Diaries, Summer and the City

Another must-read from Candance Bushnell! The transformation of Carrie Bradshaw from country girl to New York fashionista. Take your friend back to the story where it all began and after reading these books, go watch The Carrie Diaries, perfect for a girl’s night in.

#7 The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

A clean and organized home is a clean and organized head. This guide on decluttering your home takes you through the revolutionary KonMari method of organizing, storing and simplifying your home. It is a great way to start 2016 with a clear and organized home and head.

#8 Feminism Is for Everybody: Passionate Politics

What is feminism and how does it play a role in your life? This book is a must-read for every girl! This book helps you to figure out the feminist factors in your life and how to make this movement your own.

#9 Americanah

The hilarious story of a young Nigerian woman who moves to America for college. This love story, written by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, includes her witty and sassy commentary on racism and the immigrant life in America. An easy-to-read and funny book and the perfect gift this Christmas.

#10 Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl

The perfect gift for any girl who loves historical books. Anne Frank’s famous diary gives you a realistic insight in the life of a teenage girl during WWII. She grew up in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation and was living in hiding because of her Jewish origin. Her diary shows how mature she is for her age, but also the little life experiences every teenager has, like having her first crush.
