Don't you want each gift you give really mean something to the recipient? Don't you want to really hit a homerun each and every time?
I found a gift that could easily do just that. A gift that could really capture the present in a snapshot and become a real family keepsake.
They are called Between You and Me journals and I think they are phenomenal!
These journals are filled with open ended questions and sentences to finish so that the giver can fill it out and the recipient has a treasure that can really last a lifetime. You can click here to see a sample of the questions for the "Mom" one.
You can choose from Mom, Dad, Aunt, Uncle, Grandma, or Grandpa to capture wisdom through the generations. You can even freeze your children in time with the Son and Daughter journals that they fill out about their lives. There are Sister and Brother ones to really grasp a hold of that special sibling relationship. There is one called Reunion to pass around at a family reunion to really capture lots of memories and stories of the entire group. There is a Girl one for best girlfriends and a Honey one to share intimate thoughts with your sweetheart. There are even ones for Mom and Dad in Spanish.
As someone who really cherishes family bonds, I cannot tell you how awesome this gift is. It's one that seems okay now, but in a decade will provide smiles, laughs, tears, and warmth. It's really the gift that continues to give through time.
And as a genealogist, Chip can tell you that a tool like this would be so completely priceless in capturing family and relationships and timelines and stories.
