I’m just going to start this review with a little message for my brother…
Mark, stop reading now if you don’t want to spoil the surprise of one of your Christmas presents!
OK, sorry about that, now we can get on with things!
I love a personalised gift and they’re always a good bet, particularly for someone who is tricky to buy for. The Book of Everyone takes personalised to a whole new level. Because this isn’t actually The Book of Everyone, it’s the book of someone in particular. The Book of Everyone website is really straight-forward to use. You simply enter the name and gender of the person you want to make a book for, then add their date of birth and choose the age you wish to show in the book (this is great if you are giving the book as a birthday present and want it to show their age after their birthday) and lastly your own name (or whoever you want to say the book is from) and in less than an minute an online preview is generated.
Once your preview is ready you can scroll through the 50 pages, which are full of facts and trivia all based on the information you have provided. At this point you can choose a colour for the cover and also customise many of the pages even further by changing background designs, text or uploading photos. It really doesn’t take long to do this and you end up with a fantastic book that couldn’t be more personal!
Their are several different options to choose from when it comes to getting your book – digital £7.50, paperback £19.50, hardback £29.50 and deluxe £49.50. We received the paperback version which is really good quality, printed on thick paper. Delivery was also very quick, especially considering the book is printed to order. It was dispatched four days after I placed my order online and I received it the following day.
On top of the fact you get a really great gift to give someone the lovely people at The Book of Everyone have also teamed up with the charity Age UK for their #peopleareamazing campaign. Every book you buy it goes towards the “gifting” of a personalised book for an elderly person who may not otherwise receive a gift this Christmas. What a wonderful idea!
I would highly recommend The Book of Everyone, whether it’s Christmas or any other time of year!
**Disclosure: I was given a code which allowed me to order the paperback version of The Book of Everyone free of charge for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own.
