Tried & True: Personalized ABC Books
Granted, it takes a little bit of time, but if you are looking for an extra special gift to give to a young child, Shutterfly.com has a great ABC book you can personalize with pictures. The layout is all there so all you need to do is insert the pictures and modify the words. However, you can also insert extra pages and change up the layout a little or a lot depending on your needs.
I had previously made an ABC book from scratch for my oldest child, but found using a pre-set format better (and obviously easier) when I made a book for my second child, and again for my nephew. It looks like they have changed the layout from the one I am showing here, but I think it is also super cute.
Shutterfly also routinely offers discounts for photo books, so keep an eye out for deals!
P.S. If my kids don’t want the books when they are grown, I will be happy to take them back for myself. 🙂
