Ok you love books and your kids love books. But you can only get the kids so many books for Christmas, right? (That was a trick question. You should get them as many books as you want.) Still, if you’re looking to branch out and get your kids some bookish gifts that go beyond books, we’ve got some suggestions for you. Here are our top bookish gift recommendations for 2016 (we snuck some gifts for adults in there, too!). As always, some of the links in this post are affiliate links:

Kids book box subscription
There are a bunch of kids book box subscriptions available on the market. We’ve subscribed to Kiwi Crate, a STEM learning box that has a book subscription upgrade corresponding to the monthly theme. We are also huge fans of Little Feminist Book Club and the LitJoy Crate’s annual Magical Edition for Harry Potter fans.

My Life in Books Kids Reading Journal
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention our kids reading journal called My Life in Books. The journal offers kids space and prompts to write, draw, color and reflect on a year’s worth of reading. Kids can record 52 books—one for every week of the year—as well as completing several fun writing and drawing exercises. It’s designed for kids of every age. For the youngest kiddos, each section provides space to draw responses. Older readers may wish to use the journal on their own or with an adult. They are given the option of drawing and writing to spark their creativity.
