Book Themed Gift Baskets for Children

To make fun gift baskets for children, pick age appropriate books & then use the stories as themes for your kids gift baskets. The examples below will help you come up with a creative child gift basket.

With my own children, I have found that they enjoy listening to books on CD that are far above the level at which they can read - & they listen over and over and over - so consider an audio book instead of the printed version.
