Baby Gifts 101

There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all. —Jacqueline Kennedy

Hear, hear! We at Two at Twenty-Seven are all for starting them young. So the next time you need to buy a baby gift, think big. Give a gift that won't just make them look darling, they're already experts at that, give them a gift that enlarges their world: a book. Or two. Or even better, three. We've rounded up some of our latest favorites here:


This charming book has it all: beautiful, classic illustrations in rich colors and a wonderful story line. A book that encourages children to chase their dreams knowing that their parents will always be their biggest fans. The Wonderful Things You Will Be is a book every child will love for years to come. We're also smitten with Emily Winfield Martin's other children's books: Dream Animals: A Bedtime Journey and Daydreamers: A Journey of Imagination.

Darling illustrations and die-cuts throughout, this fun read will inspire little ones to become Brave as Can Be.

Fans of Olivia will love her newest escapade as she finds herself smack dab in the middle of an identity crisis. Never one to conform, Olivia scoffs at the idea that all girls want to be fairy princesses—she's set her sights far higher. Olivia and the Fairy Princesses might just be our favorite Olivia sequel yet.


Chugga Chugga Choo Choo is an oldie, but we fear it may not be as well-known as other classics so we're throwing it in here. The simple, rhyming text chugs along as a little boy's train set and toys come to life. It will leave little ones cheering, "Again! Again!"
