Birthday gifts

Page Summary:

What are the best birthday gifts? Everyone’s a little different, so the best birthday gift ideas are something that’s just for them! It’s your chance to show that special someone just how much they mean to you, by picking something you recognize as uniquely for them. Big or small, birthday gifts are impactful when they involve real thought, and are imbued with meaning. Paying attention leading up to their actual birthday can really pay dividends if you’re still searching for a gift idea, and thinking about what they like to do, where they go when they’re not at work or school, and what makes them happy when you’re together are also interesting directions to explore when thinking about birthday gift ideas.

At Indigo, we believe that books make the best gifts. Stories connect us. And as a birthday gift, a book can make that connection even deeper. A great story you think they will enjoy can open them up to whole new worlds, and provide them with an instant escape. Picking a book from their favourite author or in their favourite genre can ensure that they’re going to be interested in your choice for them. Or make it personal, with a book you love, and think they will too. An inscription can help them remember the date, time, or reason you gave it. Something they can look back to and remember fondly.

An inscription is also a great idea for kids, especially when they’re young and new milestones are being established all the time. From their first birthday, to the many that come along the way as they learn and grow, we have the best books for kids of all ages and stages. Celebrate with favourite authors and new releases. Books from Robert Munsch, Dav Pilkey, or J.K. Rowling are always great gift ideas for kids books.
