It's Your Story - Love Is...Book Review


Following on the theme of Valentines Gift Ideas I have been sent a 'Love is...' book from Itsyourstory.co.uk. For those of you looking for the personal touch this Valentines Day, I believe I have found your solution, so instead of traipsing around the card shops and coming out with the same gifts as Joe Bloggs......Earn yourself some high Valentines score points and some hot fiery kisses!


My first impressions of this personalised Valentine are excellent and some of you may already be familiar with this remarkable naked couple from the 1970's, they are the much loved art work by Kim Casali and they are featured throughout the book. You can see just how in love this little cartoon couple actually are...and no matter how little they have on...they never look even a little bit flustered!

The artist Kim Casali has made a small fortune with her cute naked cartoons, in the regions of between £4 and £5 million a year! So with this special little couple making a come back this Valentines Day...Kim really will be sitting pretty!

Itsyourstory.co.uk specialise in personalised books, they have a truly outstanding collection ranging from the birth of a baby to Anniversaries and letters from Santa, you can even pick up calenders with your special dates included.

If like me you want to get your other half a special something but find the inclination to look around the same shops BORING and then coming away with the same mindless gifts year after year...A chore....then ordering online and making a personalised gift, that your other half will just love, may just make your life a little easier...it did mine!

Ordering your Love Is... storybook could not be easier, simply visit  ItsYourStory.co.uk and click on the featured Love Is... product image, this will take you directly through to a page featuring a large picture of the Love Is... story book cover. You can also scroll through larger sized images of some of the other pages featured in the book!

The Love Is... personalised story books cost £17.50 - I can confirm that the quality you receive is brilliant, they measure 20.6cm x 21.7cm and have 32 pages in total. They feature 24 Love Is illustrations, and 12 of those pages are personalised by you.

The personalisation's include your names, your favourite television programme, or film, that you like to watch together, the name of your favourite restaurant, the girl's date of birth and her favourite food and your names on the front cover. 

When the time comes to personalise your Love Is... story book, you simply add the book to your shopping basket, this will prompt a pop-up window to appear asking whether you want to continue shopping or checkout. If you go to check out you will see your Love Is...  story book sat in the trolley waiting for your personalisation.

For me I do feel that the personalisation should be done prior to checking out. I did return back to the starting point thinking I had missed the all important step. I did finally realise and got all the important details filled in, and submitted my final choices.

You are then asked to choose your delivery method, Books from It's Your Story ship within four and 10 days of you placing your order. Standard delivery is £2.50 and express is £6.00 - I chose standard delivery and my order was here by Saturday! (I ordered last Friday!) So this was a very quick turnaround (Next Day!) and exceptional service on their part. Especially with the amount of orders that must be flying in with Valentines Day just 8 Days away!

My personalised 'Love Is...' story book arrived in excellent condition and was very well packaged.  The paper used for printing is very good quality, nice and thick. The front and back covers are laminated and the book is bound together to produce a spine, instead of other options out there where it is simply stapled together...producing a not so attractive feature!

Over all I have to say I am extremely pleased with the 'Love Is...' Storybook, and it took me under 10 minutes to order it (after working out how to personalise it). The price tag of £17.50 is well within budget and for the quality of the book, I would say is a bargain!

If you are now thinking 'Wow...What a Valentine!' I have more great news for you!

Order the personalised Love Is... book and receive a personalised A4 Love Is... calendar (normally £12.50) absolutely FREE!

Simply add both the Love Is... book and the A4 Love Is... calendar to your shopping basket and enter the voucher code VALENTINES2012 for your discount. £12.50 will be deducted from the total amount payable.

Happy Valentines shopping everyone! I am sure you will love your 'Love Is...' book as much as I do...and I am sure Luke will also have a big grin on his face when he opens it up on Valentines Day!

Enjoy your naked love couples!
