The annual horror that is Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. Aside from the meal issue there’s the question of presents. What do you buy your other half on Valentine’s Day? Obviously you want it to be heartfelt but at the same time you don’t want it to be too cheesy or boring. Which is why I absolutely love this brilliant hidden gem from It’s Your Story, personalised Love Is story books.
The concept is pretty simple. You’re asked to provide your names and a personal inscription. Then you’re given a list of questions, like what’s your favourite food, what’s your birthday, what’s your favourite TV programme that you like to watch together, so nothing too in-depth that would require any suspicious probing on your part.
All you have to do is wait for It’s Your Story to work their magic and send you your very own personalised Love Is book, which features illustrations from the original artworks of Love Is creator Kim Casali.
Diamonds and jewels and trips to far-flung places aside, the Love Is It’syourstory book is possibly the best Valentine’s Day gift ever. It shows you’ve put some thought in to your present without going OTT. While there is a bit of a cheese element it’s quite sweet and funny too, so I’ll let them off on that front.
If you’re stuck for Christmas gift ideas for the kids It’syourstory have a great selection of personalised children’s books too. Unfortunately for me I’ve already given Sharps this as a Valentine’s Day gift so my dilemma is what do I get him this year? Any suggestions gratefully received.
