Christmas Gift Ideas from Books2Door

As well as buying my children toys for Christmas, I always try to find some books that they will enjoy so that I can give some new books as a Christmas gift.

Books2Door have a great selection, especially for book box sets, so it’s easy to find something that will appeal to my kids.

The great thing about buying a box set of books is that they have the whole series so once they get started and enjoy the first book in a set, there is no delay and they can race through the whole series.

This is perfect for my 10 year old R as he is a very keen reader and normally when I buy him a book that I think he will enjoy, within the next couple of days he is already coming to ask me please can I order book 2, and book 3 of the series. So buying the whole box set just makes life easier all round – it also tends to be so much more cost effective.
