Personalised First Christmas Story Book

Personalised First Christmas Story Book


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.

Made from:

Printed to order with bright vivid colours. 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.
