A beautifully illustrated children's book, capturing the excitement of your child's first ever Christmas.
This is a gorgeous keepsake for the family to commemorate their child’s first Christmas. Printed throughout with your unique details, each story is utterly personal to you. The humorous line drawings are printed over vibrant watercolour backgrounds, with each page having a different theme: from decorating the tree, putting up stockings, waiting for Santa, to playing in the snow and christmas dinner.
You can select the skin colour which best suits your child (click on the image thumbnail to view).
On the back page we print a Christmas message "(Child's name), Have a wonderful first Christmas and a happy and healthy new year" - with an illustration of a gift tag printed with the names of who the book is from.
Tips to writing your story:
- The story is written on behalf of the child
- Only use capitals where they are needed eg: proper names
- Remember punctuation if needed (commas etc)
- Include "the" if needed eg: "the park" and remember verbs eg: "playing football".
- We read each book and will amend tenses etc, but will not amend your spelling or the content of your answer.
Printed to order with bright vivid colours and a laminated cover to protect your book. Be careful when entering your text in the form as we don't amend spelling! Choose from the standard 'Soft cover' or upgrade to a beautiful perfect bound 'Hard cover', which is matt laminated to protect your book for years to come.

I'd searched everywhere to get the perfect first christmas book for our son. It looks fab on the pictures but have to say they do this book no justice. The book has exceeded my expectations which is extremely rare if ever!!!! It's just beautiful from start to finish and each page is personalised and not just with babies name but with ours too (mummy, Daddy and his big brother) I couldn't recommend this book any more. Well worth the money 😁
5*+ customer service! Got back to me about a query immediately and Wendy was super friendly. This is at least the 4th First Christmas book I’ve brought and I’m over the moon with them. I brought 2 from Not on the Highstreet first and then found Letterfest directly and I have to say I’m so pleased I found them! Lovely special gifts that are loved by both children and parents. Lovely thoughtful gifts! Will be buying again.
Love the book.
