You'll love this because...

A clever algorithm determines the most sound, unique facts about the individual using any date

  • Personalised with a name, message and birth date
  • Clever algorithms use any date to determine unique facts about the individual
  • Find out the box office hits, no.1 album and more from your chosen birth date
  • A4 hardback or softback bound by hand and embossed with any name
  • FREE luxury gift box with any hardback purchase to keep your book protected as time passes

Each page of this memorable, personalised “the year you were born” book reveals something new, from the box office hits of their birth year to the most popular toys of their decade, all partnered with visually stimulating illustrations. With the individual’s name embossed on the cover and a special message on the opening page from yours truly, the personalised “Book About You” is designed for the humblest of individuals, to remind them that out of seven billion people in the world, they’ll find out why they’re one in a billion.

How to Personalise The Year You Were Born Book

Choose from two cover options: either the blue or orange version, both available in A4 softback or hardback. Then personalise the book with the recipient’s name of up to 25 characters over 1 line. The name will be embossed on the cover and featured throughout the book. Importantly: select the birth date – this will determine the book’s content and be embossed on the cover.

Include a special message of up to 80 characters over 2 lines, with 40 characters per line. This will appear on the opening title page. The hardback comes with a free protective gift box, while with the softback this is an additional charge.

Karen CumminsTrustpilot product review 1 star rating8 Dec 2020

Not very much in it. Very skinny for the price of it. I would rather have given more facts about the person to make the book more personal, it is very generic just like a book of facts and figures with a name and date of birth on front cover.

Order not received

Order not received, so chased up the day after it should have been delivered. Got a reply 3 days later saying "due to a technical issue, your order failed to make our internal system for processing". Customer service team offered to urgently print the book but couldn't say how long this would take or how quick the delivery would be. Totally missed the birthday.

Kay Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 25 Oct 2021

This is the most beautiful book

This is the most beautiful book for princesses everywhere. 100% recommend . High quality and they (Laura) emailed to say it would be late but it still arrived in what I thought was great time scale. They keep you up to date totally hassle free. Normally buy grandchildren’s books from wonderbly but I will now be changing to this site, over the moon only mistake I made was I should have got it sent straight to Australia for grandaughter but been first order wanted to see book for myself - perfect in every page will be ordering more very soon for Xmas

Great gift for a football fan.
