I am a huge lover of personlaised gifts. I have said it time and time again, I think they just show that little bit of extra thought has gone into buying a present for someone and they then become special keepsakes that you are more likely to cherish over the years. My other favourite gift idea is a book. So personalised books for children are my go to gift idea, especially for special occasions such as christenings and 1st birthdays as I think they make the best keepsakes. I have used a few companies over the yeas to make personalised books for children and recently I was asked if I would review a brand called The Magic Of My Name, which, of course, I was more than happy to. You can read my full review below.
Tell me about The Magic Of My Name personalised books for children
The magic of my name are beautiful personalised books that tell the story of why someone has been given the name they have. It follows the adventure of your chosen character as they discover how each letter in their name stands for a personality trait such at E = enthusiastic and works through every letter in their name until they have a full list of beautiful qualities that that they can relate too.
Not only can you personalise the name used to tell the story but you can also choose whether the illustration is of a girl or a boy, their skin colour and hair colour which really helps to make this an inclusive and even more personalised gift. I find that if the younger children can identify with the character in the book who has their name in regards to looks too it helps them believe that the book is actually all about them.
The story itself is lovely as are the illustrations that have been created by Marta Viader and Andres Arcos. They are simple yet effective and clearly show the main character enjoying their adventure of uncovering the meaning of their name.
The books are available from £23.99 and you can also add a FREE personalised message to the inside saying why you ordered it or who it is from, making it even more special.
Overall review of The Magic Of My Name
For me growing up I rarely had personalised items, not because no one ever thought to buy me them but because my name was never available or if it was it was spelt differently to how I spell it. Now with the internet and the ability to order gifts online you can make sure there are personalised books or other gifts available for anyone regardless of how unique their name is or how unusual the spelling which is why I think The Magic of My Name are the creators of the perfect personalised books for children. They are fantastic quality, good value for money and make a wonderful keepsake.
As well as The magic of My Name books the creators also offer personalised football books where you can create a character and have them interact with their favourite team using the same notion of picking the gender/skin colour/hair colour and name. A fantastic gift for older children who love football.
