Day in and day out, it’s the same old routine. They get up, go to work, stress themselves out, come home, maybe watch some TV, and eat that same boring meal for dinner, night after night. Help them get out of that funk and give them something to help them relax or take their mind off things. What they really need is something fun and engaging, like a hobby. Maybe they won’t be into it at first, but let’s face it, their psyche is in desperate need of a mental break. With these entertaining activity books, they’ll not only feel a little like a kid again, they’ll feel relieved to get home and leave the office drama behind them.
Ease them into finding a hobby by starting small. This Gangsta Rap Coloring Book is a relaxing way for them to unwind after a demanding workday. As juvenile as it seems, this comical grown-up coloring book will remind them how much they loved to color as a kid, and could inspire them to take up art as a full-time hobby!
Maybe coloring isn’t their style; maybe they’re a little craftier than that. Surprise them with this Simple Times – Crafts For Poor People Book. Since we can’t all be Martha Stewart, this clever book written by comedian Amy Sedaris, will provide them with humorous craft ideas to get the right side of their brain moving like never before.
It’s understandable that when they get home from a long day at work, the most convenient thing to “make” is a microwaved dinner. Microwave meals are simple, quick, and require zero skill; but hey, we’re looking for something to spice up their nightly routine. When they opt for something other than a pre-cooked dinner, the million-dollar question is always, “What should I make for dinner?” Get them excited about cooking, with this What the F*@# Should I Make for Dinner? Cookbook. With 50 hilarious recipes to choose from, preparing dinner will seem less like a chore and more like a welcomed escape from reality, served with a side of humor.
