My very favorite gift to give for little ones are those that are oriented around a book. I often pick a favorite book and then put together a gift set. I started a pinterest board here. Or you can click on the label 'book' below and these projects will pull up. Some of my favorites include Fancy Nancy and all her fanciness, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and one year I recorded all my relatives reading a story and put them on a dvd and sent the book and the dvd to Blythe so she could have the book read to her from her different family members....even though she lives a few too many thousands of miles away. I also love giving books instead of guest books at showers. I even helped host several showers in the past completed revolving around bedtime stories.
I'm working on another birthday gift this year (May) that I'm really digging), and I'll be posting a bunch of Christmas gift book ideas I put together this past year in the fall. I'm a reading teacher....so anything I can do to get kids excited about reading...I'm in. I heart a good picture book!
