Wouldn’t you though?
We all remember Ladybird Books, right? Those slim, educational hardbacks of our youth with their innocent message and pencil drawings. Next came the bastardised versions – satire stereotypical looks at men, women, marriage…; my sister and her new husband got ‘How it works – The Wife’ and ‘How it works – The Husband’ as a wedding gift and loved the original idea, retro design and humorous, outdated take on marriage.
Now these versions of the original have gone one step further with gifting website I Just Love It creating personalised versions of the classics for you to mould into the perfect gift for anyone and everyone in your life.
Each new book features traditional, vintage-inspired illustrations that adults will easy recognise from the original editions. Teamed with a modern twist, each new title features tongue-in-cheek content on a variety of topical subjects from popular culture.
With the same slim, hardback design and retro look, I Just Love It! have created 12 versions, including fairytale classics The Three Pigs, Rapunzel, Cinderella and The Elves and the Shoemaker; Football, Mindfulness, Dating, The Mid-Life Crisis and The Hangover, as well as How it works – The Mum, The Dad, The Wife and The Husband.
Simply order your book of choice, type the recipient’s name into the website and bingo: an entirely personal, entirely hilarious and memorable present that costs just £12.99. Genius!
