Beautiful gift as part of our sons first birthday. Very impressed!
I bought this book for my new granddaughter. I sent all the details over to the company & even emailed at a later date as I omitted a person. The company were lovely ever so accommodating. The book itself is beautifully made up. The graphics are pretty & Letterfest ensure the personalisation is well done.
This is such lovely present & I can’t recommend this gift enough. I looked around a lot before buying with Letterfest, this is by far the best quality product of its kind. The only thing I would say is that you have the option of either paperback or hard copy & I chose paperback. For the little extra it costs I would recommend the hard back copy just for longevity.
A lovely personalised story book and keepsake for our first granddaughter. Thank you, I will certainly recommend to others.
The book reduced me to tears it's that perfect. The photos on the website doesn't do the book justice. Will be tradition for our daughter to have one every year.
Absolutely beautiful. Have bought the same book for all 3 granddaughters now. Definitely a keepsake and highly recommended
