Reading has always been important to me. I want my children to also have a love of books and realize what joy can come from them. With this in mind, when my friends threw my baby shower they asked everyone to bring a book to get our little library started off. Well one of the guests really took off with this idea. She gifted a huge laundry basket full of books. I LOVED it.

Now this has become my “go to” gift for baby showers… with a slight twist.

Books can be very expensive. So I head off to my local Goodwill and search through all the books for ones that are in great condition and don’t have dedications in them. Sometimes you can even find a cute basket there too.

Check out what I got for $25 at Goodwill.
