Do you struggle with gift buying? Throughout my life, I’ve always had children to buy gifts for. When I was a teen, it was the family with four ones I watched each weekend. Then, after I graduated high school, I opened an in-home daycare and had 10 to 13 children over the next five years who I loved as my own. Which meant I also provided them with birthday cakes, presents, and a Christmas celebration. Now, I’m at the point in my life where we have 5 of our own kids, plus nieces and nephews. And while I used to find gift buying stressful, I now actually look forward to it! Why? Because I’ve found the perfect gift for any child! So, I’ve teamed up with Hooray Heroes to share 5 great reasons personalized books make a great gift! Which means I always have an idea on what to buy!
5 Reasons Personalized Books Make A Great Gift
Do you like books? I’m an avid reader who has loved books for as long as I can remember! So here are 5 reasons personalized books make a great gift.
1. Give The Gift Of Literacy
There have been so many studies that show how beneficial it is for kids to be in a home with books. A large 20 year study discovered that just having books in the home can have as big of an impact on a child’s academic future as the parents’ level of education. In simpler terms, having books in your home is just as important to your child’s development as how educated you are, when it comes to a child’s educational attainment!
2. Personalized Books Are Thoughtful Gifts
At the top of my reasons personalized books make a great gift is the fact that it’s a thoughtful choice. The receiver will know you put time and effort into choosing something customized and unique. Getting to personalize using the gift receiver’s likes, interests, and personality is something they will cherish for years to come. Plus, like with Hooray Heroes books, I love getting to add a special dedication to the child. It’s something that will be in the book and remind them that I care every time they see it.
I especially love that Hooray Heroes even brings customization to the cover too! Not ONLY with the names but also with the children featured. Our little Lucy is a red-headed blue eyed girl and Sam is a blond-haired blue eyed boy. So I choose our characters features accordingly.
3. Books Can Last A Lifetime
Gifting a personalized book is a great way to start a legacy. Not only will the child you give it to get to enjoy it through their childhood. They can store it away and introduce it to their children later in life. A special personalized book with that custom dedication is a great way to carry on your legacy for generations to come.
4. No Worries About Doubling Up On A Gift
When you go out of your way to choose and customize a Personalized Book, you won’t have to worry about someone else choosing the same item. I’ve been to birthday parties where the child has received 3 of the exact same memory game. While it was handled graciously, the gift givers felt terrible that they had chosen the same item as others. Which meant more work on their part too as they offered to return for something else. Customizing a book means you are giving a one-of-a-kind present!
5. Books Are Easy To Wrap
My husband’s biggest dislike about gift giving is the wrapping. So if you’re in the same boat, this is a great reason to choose a personalized book. They are easy to wrap! No funny shapes, odd bulges or weird angles. Most books are a nice simple square or rectangle! Which means they are quick and easy to wrap.
Hooray Heroes – Personalized Books Make A Great Gift
A few months ago, I learned about Hooray Heroes Personalized Books for kids. Their fairytale studio offers the chance for children to find themselves inside a fun story. With several different title options as well as a variety of storylines weaved inside, these adventures will have kids enthusiastic about reading. And if your child is too young to read, sit down and read their custom story to them!
Options for boys, girls, and siblings!
I love that Hooray Heroes has over 20 different creative minds constantly working to create amazing adventures. Their current line up includes:
- The Adventures Of _______ & _______ (A Book For Twins!)
- Happy Birthday _______
- When _______ Grows Up ~ Daddy Edition
- The Adventures Of _______ & _______ (Sibling Adventures Book)
- Merry Christmas _______
- When _______ Grows Up ~ Mommy Edition
Each book can be customized for boys or girls. And the _______ is where you add your special child’s name. Which is then weaved throughout the entire story.
Beautiful Quality, Bright Pictures
I chose to get two Happy Birthday stories for upcoming birthdays of our niece and nephew as well as a sibling story for our two youngest children. Upon arrival, I was thrilled to find that each book is definitely a great quality. The hard covers help to protect the pages. And inside the kids and I were thrilled to find brightly colored pictures and engaging stories and rhymes!
We love these Hooray Heroes Personalized Books! They are so beautifully crafted and there are so many reasons personalized books make a great gift.
