Being able to personalise the book makes the gift extra special
Very good in the main although it assumes all husbands like DIY and football. Illustrations are great and it brings back memories of the original books.
What a funny read, my husband loved his book and can't wait for a new one to comes out.
Personalised Ladybird Book which had the same charm, feel and quality of the originals. Personalisation was extremely good not only on front cover and spine but on various items within the illustrations, E.g. Cake on Table had the Person's Name on it, but not just the one item/page but several occurrences. Also option to insert personal message in front pages. Price possibly a little more than would ordinarily pay but the appreciation on the face on the recipient was worth that little extra I would suggest, can't really put a value on that. Really easy to order deal with supplier. Very Unique gift, well worth it overall.
I bought 'The Husband' Ladybird book as a gift for my husband on our first wedding anniversary. It is great quality and each page is an amusing take on the role of the husband. Would definitely recommend. We have enjoyed reading it.
Bought this as a part of a first (paper) anniversary gift for my husband. He thought it was funny then noticed it was personalised and thought it was even funnier! Definitely a good shout ?
Fab book husband loved it a quirky story and a great old school memory for the milestone birthday
