Dear Great Grandad Gift Journal (Sketch Collection)
An inspiring guided memory journal
*Made To Order*
An award-winning memory journal, filled with over 60 fun and inspiring questions, carefully compiled to make it easy for your great grandfather 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 great grandfather 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.
*Just to let you know that this item is lovingly Made To Order and will take up to 5 working days to arrive at a UK delivery address (international deliveries will take longer).*
Once filled in, this journal will be a wonderful record of your great grandfather’s story, one that can be treasured forever and passed on to future generations. Great grandfathers will enjoy taking the time to fill in this journal to create a lasting record of their life, and great grandchildren 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 how things have changed throughout his life, what he did as a child that is different from today, what his parents were like and what adventures he has had in his life. What about your own relationship with your great grandfather, what are his favourite memories of the times you have spent together and is there any advice he would like to give you? 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 your favourite childhood toys or games?
• What would you do for a night out when you were dating?
• Tell me about a memorable piece of music that you and my great grandmother had ‘just for you’ . . .
• What did you think when you first saw me after I was born?
• What are the happiest or greatest memories of your life?
Everyone has a story to tell . . .
A great present for your great grandfather on his birthday, at Christmas, on Grandparent’s Day or just because you care. This guided journal would also be suitable for a great grandfather to buy for himself to complete and then give as a gift to his great grandchild.

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.
