Children’s Birthday Books

Children’s Birthday Books make wonderful gifts that carry a heartfelt message inside the cover. Adding a quick note makes it a perfect gift. Over the years, I have grown to cherish this tradition. I still have books from Bristol’s Baby Shower that have inscriptions, and revisiting these messages brings back all those emotions once more.

We began gifting books for Bristol and Sterling’s friend’s when they began attending their birthday parties. Instead of $5 cards, we opted for writing sweet messages inside the books, allowing them to cherish the memories of who gave them the book and when. We always ensure to include the date and age of the recipient.

Once you’ve selected the ideal book for your child’s friend, help them decide what message to include. If they are younger, you can write the note on their behalf. As they grow older and can write themselves, suggest writing in pencil first before going over it with a sharpie. This approach can help prevent any errors.
