I know we’re getting down to the wire here on Christmas gift ideas, but I couldn’t help but share one more with you guys. Particularly because if you haven’t finished your shopping yet, it’s not too late to put this one under the tree.
Since before my kids were born, I always knew that I wanted to have a large collection of children’s books in our home. For my first born’s baby shower, guests were asked to each bring a book to help get our library started. Reading with my babies is one of my favorite past times, and I have to admit, that I, myself, am a sucker for beautiful illustrations.
We recently received a box from Bookroo, a subscription service for kids, that sends a carefully curated box filled with books each month. The service offers two options, a box that includes either three board books (for children from age 0-2.5), or 2 hardcover picture books (geared towards kids aged 2.5-6). We opted for the board book option, because our board book library was lacking, and I wanted some new titles for my youngest to enjoy.
What I love the most about Bookroo, is that their goal is to send hidden gems instead of classics. We already own our fair share of well-known titles, and I love learning about and discovering new books. The books that they choose are carefully reviewed by a panel of adults and children, and the titles that become clear winners are the ones that go out in their subscription boxes each month.
Are you ready for my favorite part? If Bookroo sends you a title that you already own, all you have to do is send them a picture of your gifting the book to someone else, and they’ll give you $5 off your next subscription. How cool is that?
So what came in our box? Each month, along with your books, there will be a card that includes descriptions of the titles that were sent. Since we received the December board book box, there was a holiday book, entitled “Seeking a Santa”, along with 2 other books, “Animal Numbers” and “You Are My Little Pumpkin”. Even though this box was intended for my youngest, who is 8 months old, my older two kids (2.5 and 4.5) jumped at the opportunity to read the books as well. All three of the titles were new to me, so Bookroo’s pledge to send hidden gems rang true.
Overall, I think this is a really neat gift idea. Not just for Christmas, but for birthdays, baby showers, and more. You can’t go wrong with books in my opinion. My kids were super excited about opening the box, and even more elated about what was inside. Giving the gift of reading is invaluable, and I love the story behind Bookroo and what their company stands for.
