Christmas shopping is hard enough but picking the perfect book should be easy! Steal the Hachette Australia team's gift ideas for 2017. But shhh, don't tell anyone what we're getting them.

  • The Secret Lives of Colour - Kassia St Clair

    I’m giving this to my best friend, as she loves bright colours and is also a photographer, so I think she will appreciate this lovely book. – Sophie H, Australian Publishing

  • Nevermoor - Jessica Townsend

    I’m giving this to my cousin to read to her three children. This is a book that can be enjoyed by everyone, not just the kids, and my cousin reads chapters from novels to all her children every night before bed. This will be their new bedtime book! Something they will all enjoy. – Penny, Product

  • The Best of the Best - Surfing Australia

    For my niece, She is an amateur photographer and loves the ocean so this book is a perfect match! It will inspire her to try and capture her own photos of the sea. - Vanessa, Australian Publishing

  • Pattern Behavior - Natalie Kossar

    This Christmas, I'm giving my sister a copy of Pattern Behavior. We spent a lot of time as kids waiting for our Mum as she shopped in Spotlight and Lincraft and to pass the time we would look through the pattern books, laughing at all the hilarious pattern cover images and model photos. Pattern Behavior is the perfect collection of ridiculous pattern covers so it is a fantastic throwback to those memories, and now that she is a fashion and costume student herself, it seems like the perfect to give her this Christmas. - Hayley, Sales

  • I Am, I Am, I Am - Maggie O'Farrell

    This year I’ll be giving my mum Maggie O’Farrell’s memoir. Maggie recounts seventeen haunting brushes with death that have shaped her life. In order to survive Maggie has thrived off these moments and she teaches us all how to be resilient, more open to experiences and question what moments have altered our own life path. Perfect timing for reflecting on the past year whilst gearing up for 2018! - Ella, Marketing

  • Rogue Nation - Royce Kurmelovs

    Gifting to one of my daughters as she loves the intrigues and political manoeuvring on the current political scene, trying to make sense of it all to see where it’s headed. Royce’s book is a wonderful, sometimes biting, often funny, entertaining and gripping romp through Australian politics. Perfect! - Marie, Sales

  • Kilted Yoga - Finlay Wilson

    This Christmas, I’ll be giving Kilted Yoga to my Outlander-loving friends. We’ve been talking about starting yoga for a while, and if this doesn’t give us the push we need, I don’t know what will! Plus, as a coffee table book, it’s a fantastic conversation starter. - Amy, Sales

  • The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k - Sarah Knight

    I’m gifting this to my best friend. She juggles study with raising her young son and a full-time nursing job and I think this book will help sort out the priorities that matter most to her. Also, it’s a hilarious read! - Sarah, Digital Marketing

  • The Last Namsara - Kristen Ciccarelli

    I’ll be giving my almost 12 year old daughter The Last Namsara. Because she’s a big fan of Leigh Bardugo, Victoria Aveyard, Sarah J Maas etc. Because it has a really strong female protagonist and because it’s a rockingly good adventure – and has dragons. - Justin, Managing Director

  • Manhattan Beach - Jennifer Egan

    I’ll be giving my Mum Jennifer Egan’s Manhattan Beach. In fact I could give this book to pretty much anyone I know and they’d all like it for different reasons and for the same reasons – Jennifer Egan is a brilliant writer and Manhattan Beach, her first work of historical fiction, finds her on top form. - Justin, Managing Director

  • Wimmera - Mark Brandi

    I’ll be giving my friend Steve Mark Brandi’s CWA award-winning debut Wimmera – because it’s a brilliant Aussie literary crime (my favourite genre) and because it nails male friendships, the complexity of them. It’s also going to win awards next year and now he can read it before everyone else does! - Justin, Managing Director

  • Tin Man - Sarah Winman

    I’m giving Tin Man, one of my favorites of 2017 to my longstanding friend, whom I’ve known for over 20 years, and I know she will appreciate this beautifully subtle portrait of friendship, personal history and love. - Nicky, Sales
