Does your child love to read? For many children, there’s nothing better than getting lost in a good book.
Whether they’re enjoying the classics like Alice in Wonderland and The Lorax, or they’ve been pulled into a world of magic through Harry Potter or they’re enjoying every grim minute of A Series of Unfortunate Events, a child who loves to read is never short of friends or adventures.
When your child has a passion for literature you should do your best to encourage their interest as much as possible, whether that’s trips to the library or reading with them at every opportunity. You can also inspire their love of books further when it’s their birthday – by spoiling them with something book-related. Looking for a gifts for kids aged 9? Click the link.

Ok, so it’s a little obvious but any child who loves reading will also get excited at the thought of having more books to add to their collection. You can spoil them with the next couple of books in the series that they’re currently reading or treat them to something completely new instead. If there’s a particular book that you enjoyed when you were young, why not see if they enjoy it just as much?
A set of bookmarks
If the idea of folding down the corner of pages to keep your place in a book makes you and your child cringe, then bookmarks are the way forward! There are lots of different types available out there, from personalized ones and magnetic ones to ones that time and track how many pages you’ve read! All of which are simple to use and make reading even more fun.
Somewhere to read
What could be better than a comfy chair or a nice squishy beanbag to snuggle up in? Creating somewhere comfortable where they can curl up with a good book will only encourage their reading passion further. It’ll look great in their room too and last for ages!
A set of bookends
If your child has a large shelf for all their current reads then why not spruce it up a little? A set of gorgeous bookends is a super simple gift that’s both practical and fun to look at. The possibilities are endless here, from their initials to their favorite animals, or the alphabet! It’s a great way to show off their books.
Most parents like their children to have a stringent bedtime routine. However, if they want to stay up a little later to read a few pages of a book, then many parents are lenient. If they’re sharing a room with a sibling, or you want to still maintain the point that it’s bedtime, then a book light is a great gift that your child will appreciate. A book light isn’t intrusive or overly bright either, it’s quite low which still helps to promote sleep.
