Book of the Month Club
A friend of mine from school has what I think is a really great idea for a baby shower gift. She gives a "Book of the Month Club" subscription- but it is not through an outside organization. She does it herself! Every month for a year she sends a different children's book that she picks out to send to the new baby.
I think that it would be so much fun to be on the receiving end of such a gift! The anticipation would make it so much better than receiving 12 books all at once. I think it would also make a fantastic birthday or Christmas gift for an older child.
On top of being lots of fun, the gift could be done quite frugally. Some of us who already frequent garage sales and book sales regularly find children's books for around a quarter. If you live far away you would have to pay for shipping, but even that could be done media rate, making it relatively inexpensive.
Have any of you done something like this for a present or been on the receiving end of it? I'd love to hear how it turned out!
