As a former reading teacher, there’s no better gift in my mind than encouraging kids to be readers. Books make wonderful presents for readers of all ages, but sometimes it’s hard to pick out just the right book, or maybe you don’t know a reader’s taste very well.
These book gifts for kids are just the solution!
Here are a few gift ideas that will make it a little easier for the young readers in your life to cozy up with a good book.

Encourage just a few more minutes of reading with this book light. Great for traveling or sharing a bedroom, there’s nothing cozier than snuggling under the covers as you finish just one more page.
Help a young reader build a library with these vintage-looking bookplates. She can elevate a favorite title to a place of honor by placing her name inside the front cover.
What could be better than sneaking away to a cozy reading nook. This fun hammock seat lets readers escape to their own world as they curl up with a new story.
This is a huge hit in our house! Super soft and snuggly, this keeps readers toasty as they grab their favorite books off the shelves. Mermaid tales and other animals are also available!
Invite readers in as you display books between these bookends. I love the simple and sweet design of these that could transition through lots of ages.
Trips to the library or bookstore can never start too early. This adorable tote can be personalized as well to make it even more special for a young reader.
I can’t get over how beautiful these hardbound classics from Puffin are. They look gorgeous displayed on a shelf but will also be irresistible to any reader.

Book Gift Subscriptions for Kids
My kids have a subscription to this service through school so you might check with your district to see if you already have access. Readers can select from hundreds of fiction and non-fiction titles which can be read to them or they can read independently. There are comprehension questions at the end and kids earn points for completing each book.
Perfect for kid who want to experience books on their own or for the whole family. With an Audible subscription you can pick the books you really want to listen to and take them with you on the go. Our family loves audiobooks for long trips in the car or even at dinner. They are a magical elixir of quiet in our house and save the day when we all just need to sit quietly for a few minutes.
We’ve had several subscriptions to the various Cricket magazines and all are lovely quality with fun stories and adorable illustrations. When my son was really little we got the Baby Bug magazine which has really durable coated pages so even little ones can look through it without destroying it. Now we’re on to Ladybug magazine and my 5-year-old is always thrilled to get this each month. Makes a great gift for any kid and there really is a magazine for every age and interest.
For more magazine ideas, here’s a big list of ideas for giving kids magazine subscriptions as gifts.
