Which Personalised Book?

An adventure up into the sky, the longest of cuddles, a quirky wrapper or a very silly story, or how about a hairy monster or 2?

“Utterly adorable!! Personalised with names of family members/friends who all appear in the book – this is probably the most beautiful children’s gift you could wish for 😍” – Wendy (about “The Longest Cuddle in the World”)

If you’re reading this, you are probably thinking about buying a really unique gift for a little one. Tickled Moon’s personalised books aren’t just any gift that will be outgrown or passed on. They are treasured keepsakes of a moment in time, when snuggling up and enjoying a story together – and a very special story too, starring them – is one of the highlights of the day. 

We often get asked by our customers, which of our personalised books is the best one to give as a gift to their children or grandchildren. So we thought it would be useful to put together a quick guide of all of our books so far, so that you can see at a glance, which one will make the perfect gift for your child.

“I received my book today. It is a keepsake gift for my Grandson. I can honestly say it is seriously one of the most beautiful books I have ever bought. So personal and so individual. It literally brought a tear to my eye. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you x” – Debbie (about “The Joyful Adventures”)

How it works…
