flattenme Personalized Books & GIVEAWAY

flattenme-owl-always-love-you

I have always loved giving and receiving personalized gifts. As much as I love my “C” necklace and my monogrammed tote bags, I think personalization is a particularly fun idea when you are shopping for babies and children. I know how easy it is to grab a box of Legos at Target on your way to a birthday party (while you are keeping your fingers crossed that you are picking the one box that the birthday child doesn’t already have!), but maybe this year you can consider buying custom, personalized books for all of those birthday parties. What do you think? They are just a click away…

A month ago I stumbled upon a company called, flattenme, and I was immediately intrigued. I just loved the unique name and was so curious to find out what they did. (Evidently I was a little late to the party as Orpah and team have already featured flattenme’s products in one of her gift guides. At least I know I am in good company…) When I checked out their site I read a fabulous story about how the idea for the business came to be and I loved their focus on imagination, inspiration and gifts of the heart. I knew this would be a perfect company to feature on Sweet Peas & Stilettos.

Owl Always Love You Carl arrived in the mail a few days ago. It is written by Robyn Spizman and illustrated by Erica Leighton.  After my son’s bath, when he curled up on the couch in his favorite blue stripped Hanna Anderson pajamas, I pulled out the book as a little surprise. His eyes lit up when he saw his name on the cover. “How did you do that Mommy?” It was a sweet bedtime story that was perfect for my 6 year old. With every turn of the page, he heard me read his name and he smiled in delight.

They also offer personalized books with photos. I love the Super Dad book and its humorous pictures. I knew at that moment that these high quality books with illuminating images would make wonderful gifts for kids of all ages. Who wouldn’t love receiving a customized superhero book? (even if dad looks a little silly in a cape…)

And while you are shopping at flattenme – take a look at these hysterical personalized water bottles. Such a fun way for your kids to keep hydrated all summer long…
