Books with inscriptions make for wonderful gifts, but LilSugar reader schnappycat had an even more inventive idea when it comes to incorporating children's texts in celebrations and building her son's library. Here's what she said:
We do something similar for my son's birthdays. We choose a book that matches the theme of his party and ask the guests to write a greeting inside. It acts as a guest book so we can remember who was there, but it's also a really nice keepsake. I hope to continue this tradition!

If you want to put this tip to good use, here are a couple of books that fall in line with popular party themes.
