Personalized Chicken Soup for the Soul Books

It can be really hard buying books for people as gifts. After all, you never know just which books they already have. And then when you do find the right book and give it to them, how do you make it really personal? Put in a book plate? Write an inscription? How do you make the whole thing totally them?

These personalized “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books are one really great way to do it. Not only do you get to choose from five different story themes (from “Christmas Stories” to “Giving thanks”), you can personalize it in ways you just can’t with a conventional book. As the title suggests, these are stories meant to comfort and heal. 
Your custom “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book will truly be a book for them because the book is printed with their name on the cover, as the recipient. And it’s truly from you because your name is printed on the cover as the giver. You can even include an inscription inside the book and on the back cover. Even add a photo to the back.
Surprise!! Here Is A Discount Code Valid Until 11/21/13! Save 25% when you spend $50 or more on print books with code: SAVING
There are other nice options to choose from, like the type of cover you’d like and the type of paper. It takes just about five minutes to make it a truly custom book. And chances are, it’s something they’ll love forever. And a 60-page book starts at just $24.95.

There’s a quick video here: Chicken Soup for the Soul that shows you how to fill in all the info using a simple online tool. The books are all done by Blurb, so you know the quality is going to be great.

Fall Wedding Planning Invitations and Save the Date Cards

Fall weddings are just around the corner!

Here are some things to consider:


The colors you naturally think of for fall (deep reds, oranges, and browns) work great, but if you want to open it up a little, consider olives, purples, dark yellows, and cream.

Some great color combos include:

Eggplant - Dark Olive - Light Olive
Chocolate - Dark Red - Orange
Chocolate - Light Brown - Cream
Eggplant - Chocolate - Light Brown

Save the Dates

While traditional etiquette calls for sending save the date cards (or magnets) out six months before the big day, there is no reason why you can't send them out 4-5 months out for a late fall wedding.

Especially for your out-of-town guests who need to plan around school and possibly babysitters, they will appreciate any advanced heads up. We recommend Wedding Paper Divas, where you can choose from thousands of designs and then customize them with your own text, pictures, etc. You can send cards, postcards, or even magnets.

My Dad My Here Personalized Book

Here's is a great gift for dad for his birthday, Father's Day or any special day...
"The ideal Father’s Day book."
A young boy starts off this laugh-out-loud personalized picture book by listing all the ways his dad is NOT a superhero: he can't leap tall buildings, run faster than a speeding bullet, or shoot webs out of his wrists. Each spread illustrates how Dad doesn’t have super powers but is still a hero at heart. The sweet ending depicts all the cool—if not super—activities Dad does do with the child, like throwing a baseball, playing checkers and going toy shopping. Ethan Long's spot-on artwork perfectly accompanies this super funny and super sweet story.
"A nicely illustrated tale that speaks volumes about the bond between a dad and his son... a great story that will be perfect as a gift for any dad or son."New York Journal of Books
