These are best boxed book sets on Amazon! (As judged by me the children’s books that my own kids love.) These giant boxed book sets make great Christmas gifts for kids. Boxed sets make reading fun for even reluctant readers. Some of these are classic children’s book series. Others are current popular elementary school books series and others work better for older kids and teens. All of these book series are well loved by my own kids.
Most Exciting Boxed Book Sets for Kid Gifts
Boxed Book Sets for Kindergartners, Pre-schoolers, and Toddlers
This is the first boxed set my older daughter got as a gift for Christmas. She got it long before she could read. But she was still thrilled with this giant box of pink books with Disney Princess pictures. Her box was well loved. I was so excited to find that you can still get this set from Amazon. Her love of reading can be traced back to this and children’s picture books.
Board book boxed sets
If your toddler or preschooler isn’t quite ready for paper books, board books are a great option. Each of my kids had a set of board books they loved as toddlers. I found two great options on Amazon for you.
Boxed Book Sets for 1st graders, 2nd graders, kids age 6-8

My older daughter got a boxed set of six Nancy Drew books as a Christmas present from my aunt one year and fell in love with them. To her disappointment, we couldn’t find them in any libraries. So I had to hunt down each of the books one by one for what turned out to be a big Christmas present for the next year. But she loved the books so much, and read them over and over, that we definitely got our money’s worth! Lucky you! You can find boxed sets on Amazon now and put the entire series together much faster.
