Disclosure: I received this book for free as part of a review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.

Sometimes, one of the hardest things is finding a gift for someone who is much younger than you. It wasn’t that long ago that I was in that category, but now that I’m in my 30s, even the youngest siblings in my family are starting to enter to high school.  Sometimes, finding the perfect gift with that age gap can be challenging. Rather than going with a boring gift card, I try looking for helpful, thought provoking gifts. As someone who loves books, they have always been an ideal gift for me, especially books that help others grow. Recently, I found a book that seemed perfectly designed for such an occasionStuff You Already Know & Everybody Should by Gina DeLapa.

Stuff You Already Know & Everybody Should: What is It

When Gina DeLapa first started writing Stuff You Already Know & Everybody Should, she didn’t start collecting quotes to write a book, but collect thoughtful advice to her nephew. As she was collecting different quotes and advice, her journal eventually started taking a life of its own, eventually becoming the book we all know today. Each of the quotes in this book contain thought provoking, informative advice, some of which are cute and funny, many of which are serious advice as well.

Stuff You Already Know & Everybody Should: Style

This personal touch really makes the book stand out and leave you feeling like you are getting true advice from a family member that cares.

Stuff You Already Know & Everybody Should: My Thoughts
