What can be more magical than a beautiful hard back book of Christmas stories, where the child is the star of the story?
We were very lucky to be recently gifted a personalised children’s book for my daughter, by the website, In The Book.
In the five individual stories in the ‘Christmas Story Collection’ Matilda’s name is weaved throughout the narrative and illustrations. The excitement on her face when she hears her name and we spot it together in the illustrations is priceless. It really draws her in and the book has fast become the go-to choice at bedtime.
Tell me more about the personalised children’s book of Christmas Stories…
The lovely quality of this hardback personalised children’s book makes for a lovely keepsake, that I am sure will be brought out in the build-up to Christmas for years to come. I still remember that feeling of re-discovering a favourite Christmas story when I was child.
Included in the price is the option to add a special message of up to 80 characters on the first page. You can also provide a photograph for the back cover and have the child’s name embossed on the front. The five classic festive tales, all featuring the child in the narrative are: ‘Your Letter to Santa’, ‘When Santa Got Stuck Up the Chimney’, ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas’, ‘St Nicholas’ and ‘The Little Donkey and Nativity Story’. The free foil embossed gift boxes, which are again lovely quality really enhance the special gift quality of the book, which is available in A4 and A3 size.
The perfect Christmas gift…
This book would make an ideal baby’s first Christmas present from grandparents, parents or friends or an ideal gift for toddlers and older children too.
You don’t have to buy the compete collection of 5 stories. Alternatively they can be purchased individually, alongside other personalised Christmas stories, including a Disney Christmas Collection and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Year-round personalised books too…
There are also many non-Christmas children’s stories to choose from on the website. Adventures that can be personalised with a child’s name too, which would make ideal birthday and christening presents. With over 100 to choose from there is a story for all ages, from toddlers to teens and different interests, from Peter Rabbit to Dinosaurs and Unicorns to Winnie the Pooh. The website allows you to narrow the search by books for girls and boys too.
Not just for the kids!
In The Book also offer an extensive range of personalised adult books, which would make fantastic stocking fillers. I am going to give one to my husband from the kids, as there are some lovely stories written for Daddies. There is an especially big selection for sports fans too, with memorabilia books designed around favourite teams or sport.
Our final thoughts…
I wish I had found this website sooner as I think the books make great Christmas gifts and presents for any occasion across the year. The personalisation adds an extra special thoughtful touch which I think people of any age would love and the quality is really good. Plus, when a well written, personalised story captivates a child and encourages a love of reading, that can only be a really good thing right!?
