Gift guide: top 5 personalised books for kids

Father reading to baby

Lately I have fallen in love with personalised books for babies and kids. I can’t remember anything similar being around when I was little – but now there are a whole range of gorgeously designed, enchanting books that are perfect as a unique gift for children. By personalising it with their own name, boys and girls can become the heroes of the stories they read!

Even though baby Charles isn’t even 6 months old yet, I’ve been hunting around for the cutest personalised books that I’d love to add to his book collection! And I’m trying really hard to resist buying all of them for Christmas this year…very tempted though.

I’ve rounded up my favourites in this post!

M is for Me

From Uncommon Goods, who are known for their fun and eclectic range of gifts for all occasions.

This unique book explores the alphabet, but rather than the traditional “objects” for each letter it features positive personality traits instead. How cute is that! You can personalise the name, the gender of the main character, the cover colour and include a dedication too

ABC What Can I Be

From I See Me, who have heaps of personalised books for kids. However, this was definitely my favourite one of theirs.

This award-winning book allows your child’s name to be featured as parts of all kinds of jobs – from their name appearing on a rocket if they become an astronaut, to their name being on an office door with loads of animals around if they choose to become a vet. All letters of the alphabet are accounted for! It provides an engaging opportunity for your little one to talk about and imagine what they might grow up to be one day.
