Need a cheap baby gift idea

that doesn't

make you look cheap? 

Books are always a great choice for an inexpensive baby gift.  A single hardcover book will cost less than $15. and is something that children can never have too many of. Pick a classic that you know one of the parents loved as a child, or pick your own childhood favorite. Write a short inscription inside the cover, sign and date, and you have just turned a regular gift into a keepsake.

This was one of my favorite stories as a child. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Indestructables are perfect when you are looking for a cheap baby gift that parents will be thrilled to receive. These are great for tucking into the diaper bag because they weigh nothing and take up zero space, but keep baby amused in waiting rooms, restaurants, or in the car.

Board books are great for the infant-toddler ages because the pages are all hardboard and don't tear.

Anything by Richard Scarry will always be an excellent choice for toddlers and preschoolers.  These word books are a feast for the eyes with illustrations that are so entertaining and funny for children as well as the adults reading with them, and they are huge vocabulary builders.  

You can't go wrong with anything by Dr. Seuss!

Fun read-alouds are a hit with both parents and children!

The Classic Little Golden Books are such cheap gifts for babies, you can give more than one!
