Let's do a little Holiday Shopping visualization . . .
Picture yourself walking into a warm, welcoming store with wide aisles and music playing at just the right volume. As you stroll down the aisles, you find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list: a turntable for your husband, Minecraft books for your son, a Frozen music box for your daughter, a cozy blanket for your Mother-in-law, a book about American History for your father and even a yoga mat for your bestie. With your basket filled with the perfect gifts, you walk into a cozy cafe, order your favorite beverage and a tasty snack. To celebrate your gift buying success, you flip through the latest home decorating magazine while you enjoy your treat.
Sounds heavenly doesn't it?
Well get ready because you don't just have to dream about it - you can experience it! At Barnes and Noble. For real. I have long been a Barnes and Noble fan, proudly flashing my Member Card whenever we shop there. For me and my family, it's a destination - a place to go and relax, enjoy ourselves, spend some time, and discover new things.
I recently received a VIP tour of the Barnes and Noble store in Exton, PA. It was my first time at this particular store, and it did NOT disappoint! Such beautiful space filled with so many wonderful things (not just books). Barnes and Noble understands that buying the right holiday gift can be difficult. Its nearly 35,000 knowledgeable booksellers are always available to help customers find the perfect gift in store.
And this weekend, Barnes and Nobel is kicking off the Holiday Season with a fun-filled Discovery Weekend. Visit a store near you on November 21st to the 23rd and discover special events, featured products, and bookseller recommendations for everyone on your list. (check your local store for specific times, events and appearances)
Some of the fun includes:
- A Linkee Trivia Tournament on Friday, 11/21 for ages 14+
- Create with Artfolds on Saturday, 11/22 for ages 13+
- Learn to Draw with Mo Willems on Saturday, 11/22 for ages 4+

You can also enter for a chance to win a $1000 Barnes and Noble shopping spree with Nick Jonas in NYC.
For the first time this holiday season, personalized gift advice will also be available to holiday shoppers on Twitter. Through December 23, Barnes and Noble will extend its booksellers knowledge online by providing curated gift ideas to those who tweet using the hashtag #BNGiftTip. Follow the conversation @BNBuzz.
I don't know about you, but I am definitely planning on doing some of my Holiday shopping at Barnes and Noble this year!

I received a Barnes and Noble Gift Card during my visit. As always, all opinions are my very own.
