This gift is definitely going to be one of my favorites to give this year.
Have you heard of these beloved books? I'd caught small snippets about them here and there, but when a fellow mom officially said "Go look, you'll love it!", I had to jump on the website and see what it was all about it.
And guess what? She was right. I loved it.
So what is this book all about? Well, the back story goes something like this: A few dads got together to make personalized story books for their kids, with their own names and characters. The sweet idea blossomed into a creative business. Now the Lost My Name company tailor makes a magical, personalized book based on your child's name! You order online, giving them the exact spelling. Then you're asked to choose the character that best resembles your child. They create the entire book for you in seconds. You can read through every page before ordering.
The story is based on a child that lost his/her name and goes on an courageous adventure to find it. He/she meets a variety of magical creatures along the way that each give them a letter of their name.
The illustrations are gorgeous!
One of the smart aspects that I love about this is that there are multiple varieties of each letter. Say, for example, you have a Jesse and a Jessica and would like to order a book for each kiddo. They'll offer alternative characters for each duplicate letter, so there is no overlap in a single story and also even with the two different tales.
Final bonus? You get to write the dedication! I didn't know this until I was ordering, and I felt so much pressure! A book dedication for Jake? How fancy!
I'm so excited for Jake to read his story. So much so that I also ordered books for my niece and nephew for their birthdays in January. There's just something so special about a unique and personalized gift.
Interested? Have I convinced you to nab one of these sweet beauties? According to their website, if you order now, you can still get your book in time for Christmas! Wowza!
