Personalized Night Before Christmas book | Cool Mom Picks


One of Chronicle Books’ personalized gifts which we’ve written about before, Night Before Christmas is a vividly illustrated and fun-to-read twist on Clement Moore’s classic. Personalize it with your child’s name, hometown, and the names of two siblings or friends. There’s even a spot for the family dog or cat, though if you have neither, sorry — you have a mouse in your house. Add a photo and special message to the dedication page for a really special touch.

You won’t just find the name stuck on the front page and on a few photos either. Instead, it is woven into the text as in, “Dante knew in a moment, it must be Saint Nick.” And when we see Santa checking off his “nice and naughty list,” no worries. Your little elf is sure to be found on the “nice” list. Phew.
