A super-personalized Christmas gift

The Night Before Christmas makes a unique Christmas gift for the little reader in your life. Your child will be tickled to see themselves as the main character throughout their very own book, starting with the book cover! In addition, you can super-personalize your book in a number of other ways!

  • Add your child's name to the story. They'll love seeing their name on the book cover and once in the book.
  • Upload a photo of your child's brother or sister...or cousin, best friend or any other special person in their life!  They will be thrilled to catch an unexpected glimpse of them on a page or two!
  • Pick from three different skin tone colors, to best match Santa's skin tone with that of your child's.
  • Add up to five additional family member names - each will have their very own stocking hung over the fireplace mantle.
  • Upload two additional family photos; your child will get a kick out of seeing their family photos in their book!
  • Write a special dedication to your child, which will be included at the end of the book. They will love reading a personalized message, written especially for them.
