I think personalized bookplates are just the coolest gift for kids. Grab a set of the beautiful modern bookplates from designer Avis Wampler and pair it with your favorite children’s title, for a birthday present that won’t end up in the landfills before next year. I love the bird bookplates specifically for kids, but any of the gorgeous, simple designs will elevate a favorite hardcover into something even more special.
The lucky recipient will be so proud seeing her own name in the front of her very own book. But more so, it avoids bedtime tug-of-wars with siblings over whose copy of Make Way for Ducklings is whose. That’s a good thing indeed. –Liz
