I think I may have found the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, or Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day actually.
The We Are Family Journal from Illustries.
It’s a beautiful hardback A4 book, printed in navy and classic brown and filled with page upon page of wonderfully printed ideas and themes to fill out for your family.
I love it for it’s simple and elegant look, it is a perfect ‘coffee table’ book. It is stylish and unlike other memory books I have seen it isn’t overly girly, it is a much for my husband as it is for me, which I really like.
I also love the fun and quirky ideas inside, guiding through documenting all that is important to your family. From the obvious and wonderful things like family portraits, birthdays and where you live displayed on maps and pull out pages. To things I would have never thought of recording but are what makes us, us. Things like our weekly and daily routines, the fabulous If You Were… page, our favourite books and the house rules.
What makes it really special is the design though, each page is different and beautiful. Framing your memories perfectly.
I can’t wait to get started recording our lives so we have this special book forever.
It is the type of book I would love to be given as as, blank and ready for me to fill, but I would love it equally as much if my boys bought it for me and filled it out as much as they could, to give the gift of a recorded family life.
Disclosure – my book was gifted to me in return for an honest review
