Holiday Gift Guide: MyChronicleBooks Personalized Books #giftguide



I have always loved giving books as gifts. My children, nieces, nephews all have received at least one book from us for a holiday gift. Classic books are always a favorite in our home — we’ve read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” every year since the kids were babies. We were recently able to create a custom book with MyChronicleBooks — I’m so glad to help my son continue the holiday tradition with his daughter this year, for her very first Christmas!

We were able to create a personalized book that is a spin off of this classic tale — MyChronicleBooks’ “Night Before Christmas.” The tale follows the same storyline as the original but puts your child or grandchild’s name in key spots, so they feel like the book was written just for them!  


“A cherished Christmas tradition in our house is to sit down and read ‘The Night Before Christmas’ — just as it has been for so many other families since this classic was first published in 1823,” said Christine Carswell, Publisher, Chronicle Books. “Now Christmas Eve becomes even more special with this personalized edition. When children see their very own names and bits of their own lives woven through the book, they’ll know for sure that Santa’s thinking especially of them.”

The book is a very nice size at 9″ x 9″, perfect for little hands to hold on to. We love the dedication page where the gift giver can write a sentimental message to their giftee. Our little granddaughter was so awed by her and daddy’s photo in the book! She kept pointing at it and looking at daddy and pointing again — it was very sweet!

Once she gets a little bit older, she will be excited to see that the book has also been customized to include her town, the family pet and even her aunt’s name! She might even find her name on Santa’s Naughty or Nice list! I know this will be a treasured book that our son and his daughter will enjoy together for a long time to come!
