You're so awesome, you should write a book! This is a 100 year diary to record the events of a lifetime. It’s to help you remember the special moments you never want to forget - the people you've loved; the friends you've made; the places you've visited. Record your achievements, take a note of favourite things books/music/people, write down your ambitions, make a 'Things To Do Before I Die list'. This is the story of your life. 1080 pages in total.
It's an epic gift for someone who likes writing and a beautiful keepsake to hand down to family as well. It also makes an amazing gift for a baby/child. If the recipient is too young to fill it in right now, someone else can start it for them; it includes first steps, first words, first day at school. This is the story of a life, and it will be treasured always. A gift that will stand the test of time - you'll be unforgettable.
Measures 16 x 22 x 6.8 cm and weighs a tonne (well nearly 2kgs...but that likes a tonne in book terms)!
Such a strong item, we hand-wrap this in smooth, thick, matte, black-board paper (with sticky tape concealed) then finish it with a thin satin ribbon and personalised black wax seal. It's nestled in black, crinkle-cut fill that's been exquisitely scented with a unisex fragrance, to maximise the impact of receiving it. Your custom message is formatted and printed on bright, white, super-thick, 300gsm cotton stock that slips into a thick, black, matte string-and-washer envelope. It's then packaged up in a sturdy, kraft-coloured box with chic labeling that's says "clever gifts for remarkable people". (Scroll through pics above to see outer packaging).
We don't design our packaging to be 'easy' or 'cute' - we take a pragmatic approach to presentation and it's beautiful and damn refreshing. Go away right now, if you want shabby-chic, rustic or a cottage-cute feel to your gift. We don't do T.H.A.T. We strip back the unnecessary and perfect what's necessary. The end result - meaningful, purposeful, chic, bold and clever-cool - exactly how you want to be perceived in the eyes of your recipients.
Inspiration for what to say on the personalised card -
* Embrace the glorious mess you are. It's going to be a great story!
* Now write something worth reading and do something worth writing.
* Never let go of your dreams… And from now on, write them down - they're going to make one hell of a story.
* Happy Birthday - hope this helps you keep track of the journey.
