WOW Your Kids with Put Me In the Story Personalized Easter Books | #Giveaway #Easter

I have two young daughters and am always looking for fun and unique gifts for them. My husband and I have used Put Me In The Story to create some pretty amazing personalized books for them in the past. They always love getting them and reading their names, as well as seeing photos of them, in these books. I have a few personalized books from when I was a young girl that my parents made me and they are some of my favorite memories from growing up. They mean a lot to me and I am hoping that these will mean a lot to my daughters when they get older as well.

We popped it in right away and we all enjoyed watching it (I even learned a thing or two). This series is great for young kids and parents alike.

Kelly Clarkson’s Children’s Book River Rose and the Magical Lullaby is Now Available | #RiverRose #KellyClarkson

Last week I got an amazing surprise package in the mail. Kelly Clarkson (yes, THE Kelly Clarkson) sent me a couple of autographed copies of her new book, River Rose and the Magical Lullaby. But that’s not all! We also got two of her plush singing River Rose dolls and a personal note – yup, a personal note. She told me that she has visited my website (eek!) and told me that she loves my Fun Gift Guides. I was thrilled when I opened it and could barely wait to surprise my two young daughters. We love to read together so they were really excited about a new book – and of course the singing doll to go with it.
