Looking for a unique gift idea for the holidays? Look no further! Sand Dune Publishing Company has come out with a line of keepsake journals to give to the special people in your life.
Each journal is hard covered and spiral bound. It measures 6.5″ x 7.25″ and contains 35-45 questions for your loved one to answer. It is currently available in 8 different formats- Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Brother, Sister, Daughter, Son, Family Reunion, Girl and Honey. The cover of each journal looks like the one to the left, each in a different color. The books retail for $14.95 plus shipping.
The idea is to give the book to the person of your choice and have them fill out the answers to the questions. I think this is an especially neat idea for kids to give to their grandparents to help them better understand who they are. What a great keepsake it would become! A hand written journal with answers to questions such as “What were some of your favorite things to do as a child?” and “What are your memories of the day you and Grandfather were married?”
I received the Mom book to review and got a chance to see what an entire book looks like. All of the questions are simple and fun to answer. There is adequate space for each response and a section in the back titled “other stuff” with several blank pages for any additional thoughts. In the mom book, my favorite chapter was “What about Me?” where it asked questions such as “What do you remember most about the time you were pregnant with me?” and “What characteristics do you and I share now?”
I think this type of journal is a great idea and would be fun for a lot of people. I also think that it might be fun in reverse! Instead of giving the journal to a love one to fill out for yourself, it would be neat to fill one out for your loved one and giving it to them as a gift.
