Finding a new book under the Christmas tree is always a winner in our house, and keepsake books for Christmas make it all extra special.
There’s nothing better than curling up on the sofa in our PJs to get engrossed with the next enchanted land we’re going to visit in a story or the cool things we might learn in a factual book. Let your child fall down the giant reading rabbit hole with these gorgeous books perfect for Christmas. From pop-ups to classic stories, these are some of my favourite keepsake books for Christmas this year.

Chubby rosy cheeks. The smell of gingerbread baking. Tiny footprints in the snow. Celebrate the joy of a little one’s early years with Wonderbly’s beautiful new personalised book, Christmas For You. You can even change the book title to celebrate their first Christmas. Magic!
Your Treasury of Nursery Rhymes, Wonderbly
Brilliant for children aged 0-3 years old, Wonderbly’s Your Treasury of Nursery Rhymes includes 30 classic songs and stories featuring your child on every page.
A charming personalised keepsake book for any child, this treasury is one they will love. The book is packed full of nursery rhymes, and all incorporate your child’s name.
From raucous stormy seas to a welcomingly vivid rainbow, weather’s most exciting moments come to brilliant life in this fantastic new popup book.
As each spread unfolds, a meticulously designed landscape emerges–a freighter balances like a nutshell between high waves in the sea; a tornado takes terrifying aim at a truck trying to outrun it; a rain-spewing storm cloud towers like a skyscraper over a farm house. Nature’s delicate beauty emerges in the intricate shapes of a snowflake and in the luminous arc of a rainbow.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, By L. Frank Baum
A deluxe gift edition of L. Frank Baum’s cherished children’s classic, vividly reimagined with beautiful four-color artwork and nine interactive features created by MinaLima, the award-winning design studio behind the graphics for the Harry Potter film franchise.
One of the most-read children’s books, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a staple of American literature and the inspiration for the beloved 1939 Academy Award-winning movie (widely acclaimed as one of the greatest films of all time), as well as stage plays and musicals.
‘Lost My Name” is Wonderbly’s ultimate bestseller, with millions of copies sold worldwide. It’s a unique story based on the letters of your child’s name, and every name tells a different story.
Your child must go on a quest to find their missing name, and along the way, they help a cast of curious characters who each hold a clue – revealing the child’s name at the end!
A wonderful keepsake and gift for Christenings, birthdays and Christmas.
