Give a Special Gift from Hallmark (Personalized Book) Review + Giveaway

Have you made good progress wrapping gifts for your loved ones? I am mostly finished wrapping, and am excitedly awaiting the arrival of a couple more gifts, so I can get those wrapped, as well. This year, my son made his own Christmas list for the very first time. He had lots of cool items on this wish list, and he'll be happy to see some of those under the tree on Christmas morning. My hubby and I like to give gifts that aren't always expected, though... a little Christmas surprise is always nice.

B has really gotten into reading lately. We worked on early reading a lot before he started school this fall, and his teachers are really helping him to find that love for reading! They are awesome, by the way! Since B loves reading, and he also loves (and I mean LOVES) superheroes, I was excited when Hallmark presented me with the opportunity to combine these two loves into one super awesome gift for B!


Hallmark has been helping others share special moments for years, and I have to say, Hallmark has been there with us, through many of our own special moments in life. Our son is incredibly special to us, and we think he's pretty super, and deserves an extra super special Christmas surprise! Hallmark makes it easier than ever for you to give a special personalized book to your loved ones!

With several special books and themes to choose from, simply select your favorite, and then personalize! Hallmark takes care of the rest, and before you know it, you'll have a beautiful gift, ready to share with someone special!

I headed to the Hallmark website, and I was impressed that there were 14 books to choose from! I was able to select a book by category or theme. I knew it would be difficult to choose just one book for B, because I loved all of the books I saw so much, and knew he would love any of them. Ultimately, I decided to go with the SUPER Personalized Book- for boys or girls. I was able to create a character that looked just like B, and personalize it with his name, and a special message from mommy and daddy!

A few days later, this SUPER cool personalized book was at my door!

I loved the book cover, right off- the design was so adorable. I saw the personalized character- Super Balian, flying through the city, and Super Balian was in big print, right on the cover.

I was able to add a special message to the title page.

Super Balian is such a fun story! It's beautifully illustrated, and such a great read!

Super B shows off his mad skills through out the story, and saves the day!

Super B even eats his yummy dinner (including veggies), gets plenty of rest... he can get up the next morning and do it all over again!

This book is going to be a special gift for B. He absolutely loves to read, and I have a feeling that since this story is about HIM, he's really going to want to read this one over and over again. Hallmark does an incredible job of telling a fun story that full includes the child, in a very special way! I appreciate the fact that I was able to see a preview of the book, after I personalized it, so I would know what to expect after the book was printed. It turned out even better than I hoped it would!
