What kid doesn’t love personalized items? Whether it be a toothbrush or a mug, having your name on something not only establishes it as yours, sometimes necessary when you have siblings, but makes you feel special. For young kids, it is also great for name and letter recognition, which are early reading skills. As an unusual name bearer myself, I never got to experience that little thrill as a child. Someone tried once with a ‘Lisa’ toothbrush…as close to Helisa as they could find, but it wasn’t quite the same. These days, it is much more common to see unusual or differently spelled names on the attendance sheet. And I love it. But I feel for these kids who will never be able to walk into a big box store and buy a water bottle or pen with their name on it.
Fortunately there are many online and brick and mortar stores nowadays that will custom make personalized, well, anything! One such place is I See Me at www.iseeme.com where oodles of books are just waiting for details to make your child their very own book. Their name won’t just be in the book, but your child will be the star! With many themes to choose from and books suitable for kids aged 0-12, you are sure to find the perfect match for any little one on your Christmas list.
These books are beautifully illustrated with vibrant colours and well bound in hard cover books. The pages have a pleasant weight to them and a glossy finish that are sure to last for many readings and retellings of the wonderful story written on them.
For review, we selected a story for each child: Amelia’s Royal Birthday Adventure and Breton’s Night Before Christmas. When ordering the books each asked for different details.
Amelia’s book asked for name, birthday, a dedication option, and room for up to 10 names to invite to the royal birthday ball. You can also choose to add a keepsake box and bow for an extra fee.
Breton’s Christmas book asked for a little more with the standard name and dedication option, but also asks for the city in which they live, the child’s hair colour and type, skin tone, whether you own a pet and their name if so and also includes space to list all your family members for stockings and gifts! This book also includes the option of adding a picture of the child recipient to the dedication page.
Beautifully illustrated and professionally bound, customized books from I See Me! take quality and personalization to the next level. Animals might bring letters one by one to spell out your child’s name. Fairies might bring the letters of your child’s name and then crown her as their fairy princess. The hero might have the same hair color and skin tone as your child, or a photograph of your child’s face might be playfully incorporated into the illustrations.
I See Me has books for nearly every special occasion and many special interests, but they also have personalized colouring books, puzzles, growth charts, lunch boxes, ornaments and more! With free shipping on orders over $75, it’s easy to start crossing littles off your Christmas list with gifts that will leave a lasting memory even after the holidays are long gone.
Both of my kids loved seeing their names in print, in a story about them, and we know yours will too! We are delighted to offer all of you wonderful readers the chance to win your own personalized I See Me book for a special little one on your list! Enter below!
