3 Reasons Books Make a Great Holiday Gifts for Kids (and Adults Too!)

With the holiday season upon us, what to give your kids, friends’ kids, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren is on everyone’s mind. My mom called me the other day complaining that she was just flat out of ideas for holiday gifts. “Your kids have everything already!” she said (which is of course entirely untrue.) But I get it: going into a toy store or shopping online can be overwhelming.

My uncle, who is the best gift-giver ever, says he takes his grandchildren to Barnes and Noble and says, “Go pick out whatever book you want.” I love this idea, so I have adopted it as my gift idea for the season. Here are my top 3 reasons books make the greatest gifts:

  1. You can literally never have enough books! They can be read over and over and over again. Unlike a toy, which kids often tire of, a good book will remain timeless.
  2. When you give a book, kids are learning while having fun. Their minds expand and their imaginations run free. Teaching them to love to read is a lifelong gift that you give them.
  3. When and if they do grow out of whatever books they love, you can donate them easily to your local school or library, so giving a good book is the gift that really does keep on giving!
