A Texas Themed Gift: Children’s Books about the Lonestar State!

Classic Children's Books

I had so much fun putting this gift basket together for a thank you gift and had to share it with y’all. A themed children’s book basket is an easy and thoughtful gift to put together for a moving away present or a hostess gift. It doesn’t have to be Texas themed but in today’s post I am sharing some of these great classics about Texas!

For the family that has everything, books are always a good idea. If someone hosts you at their Texas ranch, this Texas themed basket would be a great thank you or hostess gift. Or if someone is moving away or to Texas, this would be such a fun thing to give!

If you just want to give one book as a hostess gift or thank you gift, a bird guide is a great thing for families to keep on their bookshelves. You can find one relevant to whatever area they live or have a vacation home. You could even pair with binoculars or bird feeder for a fun family gift!

Here are some of the Texas books we love:

This Is Texas
A Picture Book of Sam Houston
The Legend of the Bluebonnet
Armadillo Rodeo
Johnny Texas
Texas Tomboy
Birds of Texas Field Guide
Round Up: A Texas Number Book

Remember, these gift basket sets make giving themed gifts baskets so easy because they come with the basket, filler, clear wrap, and tie!

  1. Omg i was just thinking about asking you for a Texas themed gift idea!!! However I need one for my cousin who is moving to Austin from San Francisco later this week for work. She is in her early 30s, doesn’t have any kids and it’s a big move for her. Any thoughts on ideas? Something unique but not tacky you know. I saw a list Texas Monthly created andnit included some chocolates – Texas theme- from Marie Louise confections—think that was the name not sure but I’ve never had them so I was hesitant to buy. Thanks for the help!

    1. Yes! I love those chocolates – Maggie Louise and you can get from Neiman Marcus! Or a pretty coffee table book about San Francisco or Austin!
