A good children's book is probably hands-down my favorite gift for a child, but these bookplates and prints from Etsy shop Oiseaux are a close second. I received a set like this when I was a kid, and although they didn't seem super-exciting at the time, I still have one or two books from that age, marked with my very own bookplates that bring me back.
What better gift for a child than something that could one day remind them of being young even after they've grown?
Artist Shelley Kommers lives and works in Los Angeles, and she makes these bookplates based on illustrations from vintage children's books. She also creates personalizable prints in a larger size that can be framed to hang on the wall.
Shelley was featured on Ohdeedoh a few years ago, and she just sent us an email that she passed the 2,000-sale mark — congrats!
