funny memories and touching sentiments.

My colleague absolutely loved the idea and was moved by the gesture. The book itself is good quality and substantial. The questions sparked such a variety of answers and once completed, the book was full of both funny memories and touching sentiments.

Lovely to read back

I bought this for my work colleagues to fill in after i decided to move on from a position i had held for 10 years. It was lovely to read back things they had thought when they met me. Best moments etc.

Will be a treasured item. And there is plenty of room for more persons to add to it for another occasion. Suitable for many similar things i am sure.


I know she will love it

I bought this for a friend and I asked all of our friends to write in it (there is space for 20 friends) and I am going to give her it for her birthday, I know she will love it and everyone has commented on how it is such a good present idea and people have written the most beautiful little comments.
