Thank you to Delta for inspiring our gifts for young readers guide and supplying a review item. All opinions are our own.
There’s just one week to go before Christmas, so if you’re one of the many trying to finish up a gift list, I’ve got a few great gift ideas for the young readers in your life. I’m a strong believer that making reading fun, inviting and accessible is a great way to keep kids coming back for more, leading to a lifelong love of turning pages and getting lost in storybook land. What better time than Christmas to give that magic a helping hand, right?
First, the most important thing you need when you want to read is a comfy place to be. We’re putting together a reading area that will also double as a movie zone in an attempt to get our kids to spend a little more time in their room (and less time in ours!) so we’re starting with a super cute kid-sized chair just for them.
Delta has a ton of new chairs for kids out just in time for Christmas this year. Some are inflatable and some are upholstered, but all are made with the quality that makes Delta a trusted name in kids’ furniture. Do you have a Frozen fan in your life? Maybe a Cars fanatic? We went with Paw Patrol since both kids love it and we have limited space. (Insider tip: they have Star Wars chairs, too!)
Which chair would inspire your little reader to sit and get lost in the pages of a book? They’ll get an entirely new outlook on a room or corner of the house, which just might give them a new outlook on reading in general. You can find these (and more) kids’ chairs at Target this holiday season.
More Gifts for Young Readers
Bookcases and Book Storage for Kids – Once your little bookworm starts, they’ll be eating up books like crazy. You’ll need a place to put them all, so make sure you have a sturdy bookcase with room for lots of favorites. You can find character bookcases for kids (like this one) on Amazon.
Kids’ Reading Log or Bookworm Journal – Wouldn’t it be fun to look back and see all the books you read as a young reader? Grab a kids’ reading journal so they can record titles and authors as they finish them.
A reader-friendly tablet – The 7″ display Kindle Fire is one of the best values out there in e-readers right now, and it’s the perfect place to start when you feel your kids are ready to start using devices of their own. We’re not there yet, but when we are, the Kindle Fire is a sure bet for us. Although we’ll always have real, turnable pages and hard covers in our bookshelves, too.
