Have any crafty friends or family members in your life? Chances are they'll appreciate a beautiful book full of modern, pretty projects for their homes. My favorite holiday crafting book of the moment is Meg Mateo Ilasco's Crafting a Meaningful Home ($25). (You should check out this video to see why I love it so.) The books in this roundup, though, rank a very close second. Two go-tos for me are Lotta Jansdotter's Handmade Living ($30) and Alicia Paulson's Embroidery Companion ($23). To explore the other books, just click on each jacket.
