    Default Book help

    Hi,

    I was just wondering if any bubhub Mums could suggest a good keepsake type book or box set/series for a little boy. I need to get a nice pressie for my nephews christening but wanted to try and find something other than the traditional christening type gift. I adore books and thought it would be nice to get him something he can keep but it is truly difficult to find something aimed at little boys. The only thing I did find was a box set of Thomas the tank engine books but it was $120.00 and a little outside of my budget. Has anybody found their little fella a nice keepsake type book that they could recommend?

    Thanks so much =)

    When I was born mum started collecting the peter rabbit books, I thin there's about 26 f them. She bought one at a time when she could (single mum with not a lot of spare cash) and eventually completed the set. I have them now to give to my child if that ever happens, and I am so grateful for it. I think its an awesome idea.

    Winnie the Pooh? Dr Seuss? Peter Rabbit?

    I have bought lovely boxed sets of both of these for babies before. They're not really considered hard to find though so might not be what youre after.

    Even a lovely hardcover book of classic fairy tales or nursery rhymes would be a gorgeous gift!

    Have u tried sourcing books online? I find them so much cheaper online I can usually afford to buy more!! And sometimes u find different sets to what they have here..

    My fave site is bookdepository dot com - DD already has a pretty decent library thanks to them!!!

    Go for something in hardcover - makes it seem a bit more special.

    I'd go for one of the classics - Peter Pan, Peter Rabbit boxed set, The Velveteen Rabbit, an Eric Carle boxed set etc.

    Thanks so much for your help ladies =) I will have a look at that website thanks Jo7! I agree with the hardcover thing. Books seem just that bit nicer in the hardcover don't they, especially for a present. I did find a nice box set of 4 big books of nursery rhymes, stories etc today at Kmart for $35 which was great except that the outer box wasn't in perfect condition which I want seeing it is a present =( will have to see if I can find it somewhere else. Once again, thanks for the suggestions.
