Holiday Gifts and Free Events This Weekend at Barnes & Noble #BNDiscovery #BNGiftTip

Looking for a fun outing with the kids this weekend? Ready to get into the Holiday spirit and tackle some gift shopping? Visit your local Barnes & Noble for their fabulous Discovery Weekend event happening Saturday November 22nd and Sunday November 23rd.  Check out all the fun stuff happening like crafts and activities during a special Snowmen at Night Storytime and even a session on how to draw like Mo Willems, beloved author of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.



I’m book obsessed and hanging out at Barnes & Noble to browse and gift shop is literally a beloved hobby. I love grabbing my Peppermint Mocha and just lingering amidst the books! This week I toured my local Barnes & Noble as part of a blogger event to showcase the latest holiday gifts and chat about the upcoming Discover Weekend. While there, we sampled the latest S’Mores Chocolate Chip Cookies…..

They were TO DIE FOR delicious! And sell for only $1 at select times this weekend. Total must buy and I promise you’ll devour it instantly!
