Dear Dad Gift Journal (Sketch Collection)
An inspiring guided memory journal which can be personalised
An award-winning memory journal, filled with over 60 fun and inspiring questions, carefully compiled to make it easy for your father to tell his story and share his wonderful memories and aspirations with you. It’s a priceless gift that’s returned to you once completed!
All in his precious handwriting and on his own or with you, your father can recall moments, funny stories and memories that make up his life. The thoughtful questions are designed to help him enjoy telling his story, describing the past and the present, as well as thinking about the future. Alongside his handwritten memories, there’s also space for him to add photos and memorabilia too.
Once filled in, this journal will be a wonderful record of your father’s story, one that can be treasured forever and passed on to future generations. Fathers will enjoy taking the time to fill in this journal to create a lasting record of their life, and children will enjoy finding out more about his life and getting to know him better. It’s a great way to add life to any family tree, by asking those questions that you may never think or get the chance to ask in everyday life, but the answers to which are invaluable.
Find out what his parents were like, where he went on holiday when he was a child, how he met your mother and what that memorable piece of music was that they had ‘just for them’. What about your own relationship with him, what did he think of you as a child, what really made him proud and what advice would he give you now? Everyone has stories to share about their amazing life and it’s so important to find ways to capture and treasure them.
When you get his completed journal returned to you, it’ll be one of the most emotive gifts you’ll ever receive, and therefore this is quite possibly one of the most valuable gifts you’ll ever buy.
Some example questions from this journal:
•Tell me about the time and place you were born . . .
•What were you best at when you were at school?
•How did you meet my mother?
•How did you feel when you found out you were going to be a father?
•What were you most proud of about me when I was at school?
•What are the happiest or greatest memories of your life?
Everyone has a story to tell . . .
A great present for your father on his birthday, at Christmas, on Father's Day or just because you care. This guided journal would also be suitable for a father to buy for himself to complete and then give as a gift to his child.

Why we love it
This is such a precious gift that enables you to ensure you’ve captured the memories of your loved ones for posterity. The memory-evoking illustrations on the cover, combined with the colourful font, make this a delightful gift to give – and then get back. We really like the sketch illustrations on the internal pages which break up the space, allowing information to be written, sketches to be made or photos to be stuck.
