Giving holiday books is a great baby shower gift that is fun all year round and encourages the many benefits of reading to young kids.
I am in that season of my life where it seems like everyone is having a baby.
With babies come showers and finding the perfect gift. After your 8th baby shower in 2 months, you might be struggling with ideas on what to buy.
With this educational gender neutral baby shower gift, you will be giving a way for Mom to celebrate the baby all year long. The best part is that you can get it delivered right to your door (and not have to pack up your own kids and head to the store – win!).
If you are like me, the love that you have for Pinterest is indescribable. But with that, comes a certain acceptance. I just don’t have time to create some of the elaborate masterpieces on Pinterest – despite how much fun I have pinning them to my boards for one day.
I have come to terms with it (mostly). However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t like giving thoughtful and creative gifts. And if you want to see how to create another holiday inspired baby shower gift, click here.

Educational Gender Neutral Baby Shower Gift
Here I am going to show you one of my favorite ways to give an educational gender neutral baby shower gift that is also unique, creative and fun. I actually developed this idea from a gift that my friend’s mother in law likes to do with baby clothes. Since I’m a holiday lover and a book lover, this seemed like a great way to extend both of those to a friend expecting a new baby.
Holiday Board Book Set
Gifting books is a great way to give an educational item that provides quality bonding time between baby and the parent. I love to do a holiday set so that the gift is something that can be anticipated all year long creating fun memories. It is such a simple idea that is still creative and easy to purchase. In fact, I do it from my couch!
I like to do the following holidays but you can add more or subtract any that you don’t like or can’t find easily:
St. Patrick’s Day
4th of July
Baby’s First Birthday
Links by Holiday
The absolute best part of this is that you can create this gift from the comfort of your own home! Amazon makes it so easy to find the holiday books all year long. Here are easy to use links for your educational gender neutral baby shower gift of board books by holiday.
St. Patrick’s Day:
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Curious George
4th of July:
Biscuit Visits the Pumpkin Patch
Bright Baby Happy Thanksgiving
Merry Christmas Touch and Feel Book
Duck & Goose It’s Time for Christmas
Baby Touch & Feel Happy Birthday
Inexpensive & Unique Gift – Great for 2nd time Moms
You can easily keep this gift under $30 depending on how many books you include or even less if you do just a couple holidays. This is also a great choice for baby sprinkles (second, third or fourth time moms). You still want to get them a sweet present but they have every baby onesie, receiving blanket and bib known to man. I know in my house, books are always a welcome gift.
Free Printable Gift Tag
I have created a free simple gift tag that you can print for your board book gift. You can punch a hole at the top and simply attach it to a gift bag. For a fun no wrap option, just stack your books together, wrap some cute twine or ribbon around them to secure & attach the gift tag. Your educational gender neutral baby shower gift is now ready to gift to the proud parents and new baby.
What is your favorite holiday board book for baby?
This is so cute! I love all of these ideas and love giving unique books to new parents! Thank you for the free printable!
