Christmas Bookmarks – Perfect Gift for book lovers

Every Christmas I like to get a couple of books for my daughters as gifts. My husband and I love reading to them and watching the excitement in their eyes as the stories unravel. Since Gabrielle reads now, we decided to get her books from a series. Figured this way, she’ll be even more excited about finishing the book and knowing that there’s a second book that follows.

Emanuelle will be getting these fun books:

Gabrielle will be getting The Templeton Twins Books:

Since they will be getting these at Christmas, I made them Christmas bookmarks!

  1. This is so cute. I too love giving my daughters books. I was a voracious reader as a kid, and hope they turn out the same. I love that you made bookmarks for them too. What a great idea. I’ll certainly be doing the same now. :)

  2. These are really cute. It would be a great school party project. My kids are too old for that now since they are in middle & high school. I love bookmarks though. I have an ereader but still prefer a regular book and go to the library a lot. I might make some of these just for myself!
