Reader Treats Just For You!

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– The Wife’ and ‘How it works – The Husband’ as a wedding gift and loved the original idea, retro design and humorous, outdated take on marriage.

My sister and her new hubby taking the books ‘seriously’!

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!
