With Christmas fast approaching I have been looking for gifts for new parents. I have a couple of friends who will be celebrating their first Christmas with little ones and some with new additions to their families. So when I was approached by the Book of Everyone and asked to review their new Wise-ish Words for New Parents I said yes. Since I thought it would make an unusual gift. Especially since the amount of personalisation which can be done is way more than I have seen before.

The Book of Everyone create lovely personalised books to give as gifts across a wide spectrum of titles including those for pet lovers, children, parents, grandparents, partners, siblings – for everyone! Being parents ourselves now for over six years we have had a few disasters along the way, learnt the hard way, laughed and cried (on more than one occasion). Every parent has a story to tell and advice to share, which makes this a unique gift.

Ordering the book is so straightforward and how much time you spend on it is totally up to you. There are two different edit functions. Simple which allows you to add the names of the parents and the name of the child. Its possible to add further children’s names so will cater for twins or multiple births. Then you simple add who the book is from and a message on the front page. The book will come loaded with helpful quotes and beautiful words such as:

‘Love them a little more before they are not little anymore’

Alternatively you can change the quotes selected on each page and even add your own. This second option will take longer but to give something truly personal its really worth the effort. Especially since there are twenty three quotes in total. The recipients names are used throughout the book. Each quote is placed on a double page spread with colourful modern graphics and a speech bubble for the quote. The text is big and bold and easy to read.

Once designed there are three different bindings which means that there is something for everyones budget. A soft paperback issue for £19.99, a laminated hard back cover version for £29.99 and a Deluxe option. Which is padded hard back book, that comes with a luxury presentation box. There is also the option to add gift wrap and a card for an additional cost

It would make a lovely keepsake to put in a Baby’s Memory Box and to joke about in the years to come.

    I love the level of personalisation it’s possible to have. What a lovely idea for a gift.

  3. This sounds like a truly thoughtful gift to give to expectant or new parents–even if they already have a couple already! Being able to personalize the names and the quotes makes this an exceptional gift!

    I have recently gifted if to my cousin who are new parents now. I must say that it is a lovely personalised gift.

  5. Love this book and that quote “Love them a little more before they aren’t little anymore” couldn’t be more right. Mine are now 12 and 14 and I can tell you how much it makes me sad that they are almost adults.

  6. A wonderful book indeed for the would be and newbie parents. A friend of mine and my sister-in-law are gonna be moms, thinking of presenting them with this.

    Parenting is like those jobs you start and they just throw you in at the deep end – no-one gets it right all the time, you just need to learn how to forgive yourself when you don’t do what you think is a perfect job – as long as your child is happy then as far as i’m concerned, you should be proud of what you’ve achived when so many get it wrong!!

  8. This is worth to read. Definitely come here for more great content! Oh and I love to have one of these books.

  9. I love the pages you chose to highlight! It makes me want to read the rest of the book. Definitely great advice, especially about raising your kids to BE more than you, not just have more stuff.

  10. Looks like a great book full of encouraging wisdom. So clever to create a book that looks like a children’s book but is intended for new parents instead.

  11. This looks like such a good book to have on hand as a new parent!

    I love the look of this, its light hearted yet honest!

    this sounds like a nice gift for new parents, especially as you have the option to personalise it with your own quotes. My favourite, BTW, is “The first 25 years are the hardest”.
