Sometimes finding the perfect gift is hard. Narrowing the options down to choosing from a few different personalized books could be the right answer! There are so many types of books, you are likely going to find one that matches the occasion you are celebrating.

It is safe to say that most children would love to see their own name and face on the cover and pages of their very own book. Reading is an adventure all by itself, but throw in your child’s picture and name and the adventure level goes up a few notches!

Kids love to see their own work on display, but do they get to see themselves on display?

I’ve rounded up a handful of great options. Discover the fun and adventure found within each of these books!


If you have a child between the ages of 2-7, this just may be the book for you!

In this thrilling adventure, your kiddo will get to see their own picture and name on the cover and within the pages of their own personalized book. Your child gets to be the hero that saves the kingdom!

Watching others save the day is exciting. Reading about yourself saving the day? Out of this world! Recommended for kids ages 2-7.

Where Are You?

Picture the popular search book, Where’s Waldo? (Also known as Where’s Wally? in the United Kingdom). Page after page is filled with pictures of people doing different things. The object of the book is to find Waldo (Wally) within the throngs of people on each page.

The book Where Are You? has the same idea, except this time your child gets to search for their own picture amidst the people on each page. It has the potential to provide hours of fun! Recommended for kids ages 4-10.

Just imagine your child (or grandchild) opening a book only to find their own picture and name staring back at them. How fun could that be?!

With technology these days, you could still watch it over a phone or other device and feel like you are there- even if you are miles and miles away!

Books make great gifts because they are always “in fashion.” These are a type of gift that can last for years to come. They will wear out the pages, reading their own book over and over. It can be a fun way to have a special connection with a kiddo in your life. Whichever one you choose, I’m sure it will be well-loved!

What was your favorite book growing up? How would it have been to put yourself into the story?
