5 Gifts for the Little Book Lover

Do you know someone who LOVES to read? Young or old, books and book “gear” make great gifts! (Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means if you click on them, I get a small percentage of the sale at no cost to you).

  1. Personalize a book with their name in it!

    Sites like Put Me in the Story not only put your child’s name in the story, but also their picture. This site has board books and picture books. These also make great new “big brother” or “big sister” gifts! A cute and personal gift for kids of any age!

  2. A book tote for carrying your books.

    Pick up a tote with your child’s name on it or their favorite characters. You can personalize one of these on Etsy and use it on your library trips. Anything that allows books to be easily accessible to your kids could work here. Bring your books on the go with this (affiliate link) cute tote or a bin or wagon.

  3. Reading chairs to snuggle up and read.

    Get cozy in a Pottery Barn Anywhere Chair or a Land of Nod small chair. Pair with a bin of books and you have a fun reading space for your little ones to read whenever they want.

    If you want a practical bean bag chair for reading, pick up this one from Amazon. You “stuff” the bean bag with stuffed animals! A storage space for all of those furry friends AND a cozy place to read~ this is a must have in our house!

4. Library kit for pretend play.

While our library systems may be digital now, take your child back in time to when we had to use a card system to check out books! This (affiliate link) personal library kit is perfect for pretend play and nurturing that little book lover.

5. Memory book with lines for writing.

Whether you’re buying gifts for a birthday or special holiday, make a scrapbook on Shutterfly or other site. Leave lines next to your pictures for your child to fill in their notes and stories from these special moments. Cherish their writing (misspellings and all!) from each year and enjoy reliving these memories together.
