When I was four or five, my parents ordered me a personalized book as a Christmas present, and it kind of blew my mind …
I think they’d found an ad for this personalized book in a magazine or something from Typewriters ‘R’ Us, but it was the late 1980s, so technology wasn’t exactly what it was today.
Even though the book was pretty cheesy, looking back, I dearly loved that thing. I’m 31 now, and I still have it — and read it to my kids every Christmas. They, too, are pretty darn excited to read about Mommy in a real book!
The nice people at Put Me In The Story personalized books reached out to me to share their awesome personalized books, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how far this “genre” has come since the 1980s (you know, when VCRs were something you RENTED).
There are personalized books with beloved characters like Elmo, Hello Kitty, Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, and the Berenstain Bears, superhero-themed books, and classic books like On The Night You Were Born.
Guys, these books are really, really, awesome …
|I chose this one for C, my little firecracker!|
|I chose this one for D, because it looks really sweet.|
I can’t wait for our personalized books to arrive, because I know the kids are going to flip out with excitement.
Now it’s your turn!
Thanks to Put Me In The Story for providing me with personalized books for C and D, and thank you in advance for supporting the awesome brands that support Laptops to Lullabies. All opinions and hilarious typewritten Santa stories circa 1987 are my own.
