One of the best gifts you can give a baby or a toddler is a personalized book with their name in it. They enjoy the story more when they think they’re the main character. And it’s a great way to learn to recognize and spell their name! So if you have a little one with a birthday coming up, there are a bunch of personalized books for babies and toddlers. Here are our top 10 favorites!
These personalized books aren’t only good for toddler birthdays or Christmas presents, they’re great baby shower gifts if you already know the baby’s name. Keeping the name a secret until birth?
