In just a few short days, we’ll be snuggled around the fireplace with all of our nearest and dearest loved ones, basking in the warm glow of the flames — and each other’s company. While there’s no shortage of ways to while away the hours together (family game night, anyone?), our vote for quality time well-spend involves reading aloud from the best Christmas books. In the midst of all the cheerful chaos of gift unwrapping and listening to festive music, it’s a great idea to take a little breather with a nice holiday tome. We’ve rounded up a selection of stories that will fill your heart with warmth and nostalgia.

After all, there’s nothing quite like curling up under a blanket by the fireplace with a good book (and perhaps a tasty cup of hot cocoa). Sounds like the perfect little Christmas pick-me-up to us!
