Southern Mom Loves: The Perfect New Baby or Toddler Gift!

The Perfect New Baby or Toddler Gift!

Thursday, September 18, 2014

This is a Sponsored post that contains affiliate links; All opinions are my own. Regardless, I only recommend products that I think my readers will love.

If you know someone who's expecting or who has a new baby, the My Very Own Name custom storybook from I See Me! makes an absolutely perfect baby gift! In this classic personalized children's book, animals bring letters one by one to spell out your child's first and last name in rhyme! At the end, they celebrate because they have created the perfect name for the child. No gift could be any sweeter, or more personal, and will likely have mom teary-eyed!

In this hardcover, professionally bound book, a jackal brings a J, an ostrich brings an O, and so on, until they've created the perfect name. As an added personal touch, it includes the child's birth date, a printed dedication from the sender, and an illustrated encyclopedia of 61 animals.

It can also be a great gift for toddlers and pre-schoolers, and can be used as a teaching tool to help them to recognize their own name.

When ordering, you have the option to upload a photo of the child to appear on the dedication page of the book. Children love seeing their names and photos in print!

I See Me! opened in 2000 and has been delighting parents and children ever since. Their books have become popular among celebrities including Courteney Cox, Brooke Shields, and Jessica Alba. They've won numerous awards, and have continued by developing a full line of personalized storybooks and gifts that will continue to be cherished for years to come.

Our mission is to increase self esteem in children through personalized books that celebrate the uniqueness of each child. The goal of our books is to show each child how absolutely unique and special he or she is, to teach the child how to spell his or her name, and to build vocabulary skills.
