I always thought once I became a parent it would be easier to buy gifts for kids. Ironically, the process has only become harder. I now know firsthand how easily plastic toys can overtake the house. In an effort not to inflict this on my parent friends, I agonize over finding the perfect educational gift that’s not lame still fun.
Enter Amy at Let’s Explore with the world’s best gift idea for a child: The Book Series Sampler. Simply pick 3-5 of your favorite age appropriate series and bundle together the first book from each. (For pre-readers I might fudge a little and chose some that were written by a favorite author but not part of a formal series.) This gift is so great because you can give it year after year and it never gets old.
4. A Duck & Goose book – I especially like the holiday books if the timing is right.
