I See Presents! {GIVEAWAY}

Before I had the twins, I always tried to buy the most unique and wonderful baby gifts for my friends. Now that I’m a mom, I see that they weren’t always all that practical – clothing I thought was cute but most likely didn’t fit, monogrammed keepsakes that are definitely collecting dust somewhere, toys that probably got used a few times and then outgrown…. I could go on an on. But when my girls were given I See Me books by their Auntie Amy, I knew I'd found the perfect gift for any new arrivals coming along.
I See Me creates personalized storybooks that kids will love reading because they're all about them! My Very Own Name, My Very Own Fairy Tale and My Very Own ABC’s are 8.5” x 11” hardcover books that use the child’s name, birthday and other character traits as part of the story. You can also add a personalized dedication inside the front cover so every time the book is opened, the little one will think of you!

I really love the latest addition to the I See Me line, The World According To…, a book that features a child's own drawings and commentary. What better way to preserve the precious stages in a kid’s life than a mini-autobiography?
The World According To… kit includes interview questions to ask, such as what the he or she wants to be when they grow up, who the special people are in his or her life and why they love each of them, their favorite things and more. Color markers are also included so he or she can draw 6 illustrations, including a self-portrait. Parents submit the interview answers and drawings in a postpaid envelope and in 3 weeks, a stunning 20-page professionally typeset book arrives, ready for all-about-me story time!

I can’t wait until the girls are old enough to make their books. I have no doubt I’ll cherish The World According To Gabrielle and The World According to Alaina forever!

Want to know more? You can take a virtual tour of each of the titles on the I See Me website.
