Thank you all for the great ideas you gave me on the gift for my one year old grandaughter. I have decided on a gift and need your advice on a way to "present/package/wrap" it. I have decided to give her several complete selections of Little Golden Books. I had several sets as a child and still remember the stories fondly. I think by the time I give her all the sets I want to, it will be around 20 or 30 books. Instead of just wrapping them in paper, I'd like to put them in some of cute tote or basket or container that can be part of the gift. Something really cute (not just a generic plastic tu.....are you following me?
Something that her parents could grab at night and pick a book or put on the floor by her bed...any ideas???

Why not just buy the boxed sets?
ETA: or a bookcase?

What about a nice personalized canvas tote with her name on it from Lands End or one of those places?

OK. Newbie. This is how it works. If your post consists of 80% sanity, 10% stupidity and 10% all kinds of crazy, we immediately focus on the 20% b/c it discredits the 80%.

Pottery Barn kids has nice lined baskets and you can have the liner embroidered with her name or a cute phrase. Just search for "baskets" on the pb kids site.

I'd probably buy her something she could play with. My kids at 1 year old would have torn the pages out of books like those.

But a bookshelf is a nice idea to start her own library. I'd just start with board books instead.
