I don’t know about you, but every year around this time I’m stuck for finding unique and not-so-expensive gift ideas. I also prefer to shop in the comfort of my own home, avoiding crowds and Christmas chaos. That’s why I was really thrilled to come across the publishers of something so unique that actually brings people together! Sand dune publishing puts out a Family Keepsake Journal series that puts a personal touch on presents for ones you love.
What are these things? Well – each journal contains fun questions that you and a best friend, lover, mother, son, etc. can share as the recipient responds and it becomes a keepsake of your special moments together. It gives new meaning to a "tell all" ;)
You may think that you know the beloved person in your life whom you give this to, but do you really know what memories with you they view as the most special? In this world of insta-everything and text messages, nothing is really saved and preserved for posterity. Sometimes it’s nice to have a handwritten record of times together.
My two favorite journals are the “Girl” journal because I can see how it would commemorate the bond that I share with some of my closest friends by asking questions such as: “If you could relive one moment from our past, what would it be? Why?"
Also appealing to me is the “Daughter” journal, since as a mother, I love hearing about my daughter’s perspective on times we share together.
For those who want to see things through a significant other’s eyes, the “Honey” journal is probably the one for you. This is a peek into the inside of your relationship. Notice the hardbound covers, wired together with quality paper pages, which pose questions like, “What are your favorite memories of the time we first met?” to thought provoking queries such as “What do you with I better understood or better appreciated about you?” These are questions rarely asked in person, but the answers can be quite profound, and you can really learn something about your partner! (And it’s fun to revisit those steamy moments, too!)
So… here’s the best news! Sand dune publishing is giving away not one, but TWO journals of choice to TWO red hot readers of TheLadyinRedBlog!
