Still looking for that perfect gift? I think books make such special gifts. It’s an annual tradition on DoSayGive to share my favorite classic children’s Christmas books so I’m doing that today but I’m also sharing some neat gift books for children that you can get in time for Christmas! Oh and about 20 fab gifts for adults that you can still get in time with free standard shipping!

First, if you still need a great gift idea here are some ideas for adults that are guaranteed to arrive in time for Christmas if ordered today (most with free shipping!):


And don’t forget my SHOP tab where I have an entire section on books that make lovely gifts. Most of them ship free in two days with PRIME so you’ll have in time for Christmas!

Now for the children’s books…

Song of the Stars’ illustrations are beautiful – perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.

Side note: I gave this M is for Manger book for my four year old’s class book exchange. It’s under about $8 and really sweet!

I’ve gathered some neat gift books for children as well. I am giving my nephew this big MAPS book. If you follow DoSayGive on Facebook you probably saw the lightening deal on this last night – but it’s well worth the full Amazon price.

You can view my classic children’s book recommendations anytime when you hover over the SHOP tab at the top of my blog, then click on Classic Children’s Books.

I am not sure I will post again this week. As many of you know, my daughter has been very ill and so I am playing nurse and helping her get better in time for Christmas travels. Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers.

And may you all have a blessed Christmas!
