My Life Story Diary

I love this so much. I think it would be such an excellent gift for a newborn, though it might be a little heavy (not weight-wise, although there is that, I mean more like possible awkwardness if the new parents couldn’t quite grasp the coolness of getting a huge empty somber-looking book for their baby…I guess you’ll have to be selective). It’d probably be a good gift for anyone that likes keeping track of life events the old-fashioned way.

Carve your own postcard

When you’re far from your loved ones, it’s especially nice to receive something handwritten. It’s so old fashioned and lovely. Even more so, imagine getting a postcard which had a hand carved image on the back. Much better than an email any day.
