To a child, there is no day in the calendar more enchanting and marvellous than the 25th of December. So what could be more magical for a child than a tale about Christmas in which they are the star of the story? Well, how about five! This Christmas Story Collection book is a compilation of five festive tales, all featuring your child in the narrative. They are: “Your Letter to Santa”; “When Santa Got Stuck Up the Chimney”; “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”; “St Nicholas”; and “The Little Donkey and the Nativity Story”.
In this fully personalised book, your child is the star of the each of the stories. The text is built around the name you enter, which will also feature on the festive red hardback cover. Furthermore, you can add in a special message which, along with a free gift box, is sure to make this present even more special for them. Check out the book’s fantastic feature in this Christmas gift guide below:
How to Personalise the Christmas Collection

Also include a Message of up to 80 characters over 2 lines, which will appear on the opening title page of the book. You can also emboss your child’s name on the front cover.
Make your gift that extra bit magical by presenting the book inside one of our two FREE gift boxes:

Highly recommend book and website. First Class service start to finish.

Bought as a first Christmas present 2020 for our grandson.
I love how it's personalised with his name throughout. I look forward to reading it to him every Christmas until he can read it himself. It should keep very well for many years in the lovely box it comes in. Really pleased with it, thank you.

Beautiful, this book is not just for this Christmas but many more to come. I was not disappointed and so happy to know my granddaughter will be able to see and spot in her name in the graphics of the pages. Treasured memories

Amazing! Something special to treasure for years to come :-)
I have bought two items now. A quick service quicker than expected. Well package items beautifully presented. Both for birthday presents ideal and better than I imagined. Kept up to date, order processing and despatch dates, I cannot fault them. Easy to order with a choice of covers and size you are in control of what you want to spend. I think I have had two lovely presents with value for money.

This is a 60th birthday gift to my big little brother, I’m big lil sis (the eldest of my three brothers)
This is a 60th birthday gift to my brother in another county to where I live, so not visually been able to see the item purchased due to covid travel restrictions.
It’s fair to say as an avid MC supporter he is really pleased with it so far.
The book arrived in good time well before the expected date & I believe well packaged.
All in all both my self & brother really pleased with gift/purchase.

Very dissatisfied with book I received
Very dissatisfied with book I received.
The photo copying of many of the pages was very bad and barely readable. The pictures were just black indistinguishable blobs.
This was a birthday present and I was so embarrased when I gave it to them as it was such poor quality and unreadable in parts.

Thank you for your review.

Within the product information on the website we do confirm that these books are created from the Telegraph scan archive and in some instances there will be blemishes and the reproduction quality may not be as clear or precise vs copying direct from the actual paper itself.

A great gift for my Everton mad fiancé
A great gift for my Everton mad fiancé. He loved looking down memory lane via the newspaper cuttings and remembering being there. He also loved the personalisation it made it an even more special gift. Well worth the money and not overly expensive.
