My oldest son is seven years old and it’s hard to believe this will be his eighth Christmas with us. Last year I took one of my all time favorite photos of him reading to his baby brother Jax on his first Christmas. We had gotten him a personalized book Jax’s Night Before Christmas.
When we got it out this year Reed asked why he didn’t have any personalized books! Oops! I guess I thought of it for younger kids but of course older appreciate it too, especially since they can read it on their own now.
The choices do mostly seem younger to me and those in the Christmas selection all have different age recommendations so be sure to review those first. The book I chose was recommended for ages 0 – 8 so it was the perfect time to get it for him.
Everyone loves snowmen so I chose Reed’s Magical Snowman! It’s a delightful story filled with magic just in time for the holidays!
All of their books start with a dedication page where you upload a photo as well as a personal message. Nothing thrills them more than opening a real book to find a picture of themselves!
The magic doesn’t end there. I love the effort at repeating their name so many times throughout the book. They have so much fun searching every page to find their name, and they usually do in both the story and the illustrations!
In addition to meeting his age recommendation, the other reason I chose this particular book was that there was a matching Magical Snowman ornament!
I chose to use the same picture so that it would match and also so that in years to come we would know it was the same year.
The ornament is the flat style and comes with the image already set in it. I was so relieved to not have to cut out a little picture to the perfect size for an ornament. It was all done for me!
I See Me has so many wonderful gifts to treasure for years to come. In addition to the books and ornaments there is a wonderful selection of personalized items for everyone on your list including Lunchboxes / Puzzles /Coloring Books/ Placemats / Stickers and Growth Charts! Give the gift they’ll cherish for a lifetime!
My Magical Snowman is a heart-warming new personalized storybook that will make your child feel extra special this holiday! The magic all starts when forest creatures come together to build a special snowman friend just for your child. When your child reaches out for a hug, Snowman comes alive! Your child and Snowman sled, skate, make snow angels, laugh and play together in utter delight. Snowman tells your child that he or she is as “unique as a snowflake” and that your child’s love is the magic that fills up his heart. Written by award-winning author Jennifer Dewing, illustrated by artist Amy Schimler-Safford.
