Donna Hay Christmas: simple recipes, menu planners is a lovely book.
The photography is awesome and the recipes are easy.
The Ultimate Handcrafted Christmas: 200 decorations, gifs, cards and treats to make for a perfect Christmas by Alan D. Gear and Barry L. Freestone has lots of easy and not-too-difficult craft patterns and instructions. And they aren't tacky stuff. (This is not the right cover photo, but kind of looks like it.)
Christmas Gifts from the Kitchen by Jean Paré has a lot of cookie,
fudge and sauce recipes as well as instructions for making dry mixes
and gifts in a jar and some crafts and wrapping ideas.
Rick Steves' European Christmas is an informative book on traditions and history. Lots of photos, but not the relaxing read I was hoping for.
