Greetings Gift-Givers!


Hi gift-givers! Do you ever read this newsletter and say to yourself “how did I never think of this gift idea?”. Welp, here’s some déjà vu coming your way courtesy of BGC subscriber Alison.


Gift idea time! Here’s a story of a
great gift to spark your creativity


The “card replacement journal" Gift:

I’m very proud of the 1st ever Father’s Day gift I gave to my husband.  I bought a blank journal with a meaningful picture on the cover & drew a Happy Father’s Day picture (very basic) on the first page, from our baby & me.  For each holiday we use a page, I never have to shop for a card, & it is easy to look back at all of the “cards” over the years. We now have 20+ years in one book, & he still loves it.



Why this gift is great


  • Budget-friendly

  • Awesome tradition

  • Practical, while very personalized

  • Creates a timeless family keepsake


Brainstorming your version of this gift


General guidance:

  • Choose a durable journal that will withstand the test of time

  • Designate a place in your home to keep the journal so it’s always easily accessible

  • If you have multiple children, no problem – use multiple pages for each occasion (there are no rules)


It’s never too late to start this gift!
