Easter Basket Gift Ideas with I See Me!


We all love candy and sweets on holidays like Easter, but parents want to give real Personalisiertes Geschenk, or personalized gifts. It is a tricky task to find ones that are so useful, ones that can be enjoyed throughout the year. It can be hard to come up with gift ideas, however, which is why many websites exist with pre-made lists to help us think ahead.

This Easter make the smart choice and give the gift of personalized games and books from I See Me!

I See Me! is one of MamatheFox’s favorite brands. Their collection of gifts and books is always growing and and changing. They make personalized gifts so easy that you will be going back for more over and over again.

They allow you to add a picture of your child to some of their book – which is thrilling to my children. When they see their own faces, and the faces of their loved ones on a book, they are more engulfed into the message and listen more intently. The personalized images make them feel special, important and loved.

My 2 top picks for your children’s Easter Basket this year are brand new products from I See Me! The Our Family’s Race Across the USA board game and the My Little Love Bug and Love Notes set

The Our Family’s Race Across the USA board game

This is a super exciting new board game that is sure to make your family full of joy. You can create up to 6 personalized player game pieces with photos of your family. MamatheFox has a family of 4, so we have 2 other character faces that were provided to give us the full 6 player set of pieces.

My kids are 4 years old and 5 years old and are very much into games right now. They love to play games every day. Since adding in Our Family’s Race Across the USA into the rotation I am not minding playing along.

The game board folds open to show a colorful, wiggly path which you must travel on to get to the final destination, Washington D.C! As you move along your family will see their own names incorporated throughout the board, which is wonderful for preschoolers learning to read, write and spell their own names.

You move by picking up little cards which display either 1 or 2 colored squares, which are the same option of colors in the board, moving along the path towards the end. Some fun images are mixed in with the colored square, which can allow you to move to different areas on the board as you select them.

If your child likes games like Candyland and Shoots and Ladders, then this is the perfect new game for your house.

At only $29.99, this makes the most exciting personalized gift you may ever buy!

The My Little Love Bug and Love Notes set

The Love Note set is the most entertaining way to leave notes for your school ages child in their lunchbox! Each week I try to remember to write a little note on a napkin and place it in their lunchbox. Letting them know I love them, Jesus loves them and a reminder to be a super great kid at school. With these pre-made, and personalized Love Notes, I can simply place one in their lunch box. I love how easy they are to use and my kids love how the feeling they get when they see a personalizes note, with their face on it, in their lunchbox!

Each note is on a 4×6 card and (as long as they are kept clean) can be reused over and over again.

The Loves Notes set also comes with a the Little Lovebug book. The book can be personalized with up to two names, which is great for our family as we have only 2 children. The book includes their names and photos, showing them how much you love them.

The other half of this set is a custom book “Out Little Lovebugs”

This book can have two different children included in the story. Both parents are also featured as characters, truly giving this book a family feel. When I showed this book to my 4 year old son his eyes popped open wide and his grin when ear to ear! He was thrilled to see his face and name on the front cover. When we started to read the story and he saw his mom and dad’s face in the pictures along with his sister he was ecstatic!! He would point to our faces and announce who it was as each page was turned.

This book is more of a Valentine’s Day theme, but can be loved and enjoyed all year round.

I See Me! Lunch Boxes

With the back to school season here parents everywhere are getting organized and picking up their children’s school supplies. One my my favorite essentials is their lunchboxes. Packing a fun and healthy lunch is such a huge part of a successful day and a better overall education. For the last 2 school seasons we have used I See Me! Lunch Boxes. This is because they are the perfect size, durable, easy to wash, keep the food from being squished and have a fun chalkboard inside for personalized messages. Having a lunch box with your child’s name on it makes school that much more fun. My daughter and son are now able to recognize their own names, so seeing it on their lunch box makes them feel proud knowing that is their box alone.

Every year my husband would write a special, personal message to our daughter using the chalk board feature insideI See Me Lunch box the I See Me! lunch box. It was something she looked forward to everyday. The chalk board is easy to write on and easy to wash. I love how it a very high quality lunch box, unlike others which break, rust or whose chalkboards don’t actually work. Our preschooler loves packing her lunch the night before with her father.

About I See Me!

I See Me! provides the highest quality, most personalized children’s books available. I See Me! was started by founder Maia Haag and her husband Allan after they received a personalized book as a gift for their first son in 1998. While they loved that it was personalized, they thought that the illustrations could have been much better and the story more customized to the child. Thus I See Me! was born.

With the 2015 Holiday Season approaching we all need ideas for what to get the children in our life. Books are timeless. They are the most cherished thing in our house. We make point to read several books everyday to our children. The gift of knowledge and confidence through books is priceless.

Gift Ideas of 2015

God Loves You!

The celebration of Christmas is, above all else, the celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth. His arrival on earth to save man from our sins, is the main objective I teach my children every holiday season. This Christmas I will be giving my 3 year old daughter a copy of “God Loves Dorothy” to her.

God Loves Me

In this book you you can tell your child just how much God loves them with a beautifully illustrated book. The reason God came to earth was to show us how much He loves us, and this book, as a Christmas gift is the best possible gift to give. I have been suggesting it to all my friends as a perfect Christmas gift for small children this year. Each page has bold and lovely pictures of all of God’s creations. This is the perfect gift for any young child in your life.

God Loves Me Book

My Very Merry Christmas!

My son, Max, will be receiving this special personalized book this Christmas. The book uses beautiful primary colors, perfect for young children. By showing him his name inside the book I know he will get excited. When he hears his name on TV and in movies his little ears perk up and listen closer. By having his name inside a book I will be able to keep his attention and tell him a fun and simple Christmas book.

A Very Merry Christmas Book

In each book that I See Me! creates you can personalize by name and typically include a special messages. The special message could be as simple as I love you, Mom & Dad, or more specific. Some books also allow for a photo of your child to be used! This is a feature which the God Loves Me book offers. My daughter is going to shout with joy when she see’s her very own picture inside of her own book. I cannot express enough how awesome these books truly are.

Mama’s Experience

Personalized Storybook:


“Celebrate your favorite little preschooler with this adorable new personalized storybook, The Very Important Preschooler (V.I.P.)! Your child will learn that being a “V.I.P.” means making new friends at preschool, sharing, helping out, cleaning up, learning new things and more. The Very Important Preschooler is filled with lots of great messages for your little preschooler and is personalized throughout the story and on the cover with his or her name! Written by Jennifer Dewing, Illustrated by Jill McDonald.” – I See Me!

This book is so beautiful. The illustrations are bright and bold. Perfect for a toddler to be fully engaged while reading.

When you child hears their name being read aloud during the story their eyes perk up and eyes open wide. I showed my daughter that her name was in print right there in the book. She thought that was too special. She loves this book because it truly is about her. The book will forever be a cherished part of our home library.

Personalized Lunch Box:

“Our personalized lunch boxes make your child feel special every day! Each one of our lunch boxes features your child’s name on multiple sides. On the inside lid, there’s a chalkboard where you can write a personalized note to your child each morning!

Safe for storing food, our lunch boxes are made of tin and contain no lead. They’re also great for storing toys and other treasures!

Hand wash with dish soap. Do not put into dishwasher. Chalk is not included.”I See Me!

My daughter has seen many photos of lunch boxes in her expansive 2 years. She knows what they are. But, she has never had her own. We typically use a cooler when going to the zoo or vacation. We share a large container for the whole family. She had no idea that she was getting her own lunch box.

When I showed my daughter her lunch box she got so excited. She wanted to hold it and carry it around with her. She even showed her little brother new prized possession. She has loved purses and bags for ever, so it was natural that my little girl would want to tote around her new lunch box. I sat her down and showed her that her name was on the box she got giddy with excitement. It was all hers. She didn’t have to share this one with her little brother. Having it personalized created a confidence and independence in her. I highly recommend getting a personalized lunch box from I See Me!
