“Another party gift? I am tired of giving people a bottle of wine, a scented candle, or a useless toy. Finally a gift that lasts, makes sense, and that I can give at any occasion and to any age.”

Thomas, 31

“We were brainstorming about my daughter’s 16th birthday party and when she asked me what I did for my 16th, I couldn’t remember. When I called my mother to ask her what we did, I realized that she was talking about my sister’s 16th birthday, not mine!”

Katja, 46

“I was so proud when my best friend asked me to be her newborn’s godmother. What gift could I get her daughter that would be special? A silver spoon, a blanket, a toy? When I discovered My Birthday Book, I knew that was a gift that would be treasured for her whole life.”

Annette, 36

“When my parents passed away I had an attic full of letters, photos, and documents to sort through. Sifting through their lives, I was overwhelmed, I wished that I had something that chronicled the important moments in my parents' lives spanning 80 years; a book that I could share with my family and friends.”

Matt, 54

“I started filling out My Birthday Book when I was 10 and it’s already really fun to look back at my birthdays with my friends and remember what I did.”

Luis, 12

“My friend Charlie called me to ask me where to stay when he goes to Vietnam this summer and I wanted to recommend this amazing bed and breakfast in Saigon and the noodle shop in Natrang, but I couldn’t remember the names and couldn’t find my notes.”

Tanya, 28

"We were throwing a New Years party and someone asked me what I did for New Years the year before. I can’t remember what I did for New Years when I was 20, or 35, let alone last year. Wouldn’t it be great to have all my New Years in one place, the good, the bad, and the ugly?”

Jana, 45
