Dear Mum Gift Journal (Timeless Collection)
An inspiring guided memory journal
An award-winning, beautiful fabric and gold foil blocked memory journal, filled with over 60 fun and inspiring questions, carefully compiled to make it easy for your mother to tell her story and share her wonderful memories and aspirations with you. It’s a priceless gift that’s returned to you once completed!
The luxurious finish, complete with a gold ribbon bookmark, makes for a wonderfully timeless keepsake that is classic, but contemporary. All in her precious handwriting and on her own or with you, your mother can recall moments, funny stories and memories that make up her life. The thoughtful questions are designed to help her enjoy telling her story, describing the past and the present, as well as thinking about the future. Alongside her handwritten memories, there’s also space for her to add photos and memorabilia too.
Once filled in, this journal will be a wonderful record of your mother’s story, one that can be treasured forever and passed on to future generations. Mothers 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 her life and getting to know her 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 her parents were like, where she went on holiday when she was a child, how she met your father and what that special piece of music was that they had ‘just for them’. Yes, she really did have a life before you came along! What about your own relationship with her, what did she think of you as a child, what really made her proud and what advice would she 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 her 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 . . .
• Who was your best friend as a teenager and why?
• How did you meet my Dad?
• What did you think and feel when you first saw me?
• What are you most proud of about me?
• What are the happiest or greatest memories of your life?
Everyone has a story to tell . . .
A great present for your mother on her birthday, at Christmas, on Mother's Day or just because you care. This guided journal would also be suitable for a mother to buy for herself to complete and then give as a gift to her child.
Also available in the Timeless Collection: Dear Dad, Dear Grandma, Dear Grandad, Dear Daughter, Dear Son, Dear Sister, Dear Brother and Dear Friend.
