My Favorite Coffee Table Books (+ More)

Coffee table books may seem impractical, but they make great gifts and if you do it right, you'll have a display that you and your guests will want to pick up and browse!

Check out a few of my personal favorite coffee table books, plus a few that I would add to my collection:

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with Fixer Upper, but I also love to decorate and when you combine those two loves into one book, this girl can't resist! You can find Joanna Gaines' new interior design book, Home Body, here.

The Dress: 100 Iconic Moments in Fashion by Megan Hess is by far the chicest coffee table book that I've found to date. The pages are lined with gold foil and it's so fun to flip through the pages and see fashion icons and dresses that have revolutionized the fashion industry!

I studied abroad in London one summer while I was in college so I'm all about having coffee table books that are personal! James Gulliver Hancock also has this same book for other cities like Paris and New York as well. You can purchase All the Buildings in London: That I've Drawn So Far by James Gulliver Hancock on Amazon for under $20.

The Drybar Guide to Good Hair For All by Alli Webb is both cute and practical! You can find hair inspiration, how-to's, tips, and product recommendations all in one spot. But the best part of all? When you're not reading it, it can live on your coffee table or shelf in style! This gem is also under $20.

A few other coffee table books that I love:

Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton // I have this book as well and it's so fun to flip through! I love how Brandon Stanton saw a city with so much life and personality and decided to capture stories from people of all walks of life.

1000 Record Covers by Michael Ochs // I absolutely love Vinyl so this coffee table book is the perfect combination of vintage + art deco.

Modern Weddings: Creating a Celebration That Looks and Feels Like You // If there's one thing I know, it's that people love to talk about their wedding long after their special day. This would make a unique gift to that special couple in your life and would also spark a conversation that is sure to have the bride smiling and reflecting on their wedding day! P.S. it's under $25!

Vogue: The Covers by Dodie Kazanjian // For all you fashion lovers, this is the book for you!

That's What She Said: Wise Words from Influential Women

Kate Spade New York: All in Good Taste // I absolutely adore this book because it has tips and tricks + amazing recipes and ideas for your next party. It's hard not to be the hostess with the mostest with this book on your side.

The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior // This fun little book adds a pop of color and makes a great gift for the women in your life who adore fashion!
