The Best Gift for Parents and Grandparents
Boy do we have one of those unique gift ideas that we think you’re going to love! It’s one that benefits future generations and creates family keepsakes! What if there was a way to document life history of a relative and create a beautiful keepsake book with minimal effort?
There is, and we can’t wait to tell you about Storyworth and share our honest Storyworth review!
Sentimental Gift Idea
One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is the nostalgia it brings. We remember our childhood experiences and share them with siblings and friends. Also, we recall the best slice of pie and the worst piece of fruitcake from years past. And, we often end up hearing stories from parents and grandparents that are a part of our family history. We listen and hope we can cherish and pass these on to our grandchildren someday.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought about my grandparents who have all passed and wished there were more recordings of their history and their stories. I’d love to read about my grandpa’s WWII experience at home and abroad. I’d also love to know what they named their dog, and regularly made for dinner.
I wish there was a written history to go with their experiences. For now, I am relying on my own parents’ memory. I hope to get my grandparent’s stories down before it’s too late.
I’m so excited to share the easiest way to help you capture these meaningful moments with what we think may be the best feel-good gift for parents who have everything.
Sentimental Gift for Parents
I want to get my parents’ histories recorded too! Who wouldn’t love a memoir of their ancestors told firsthand? They both have amazing stories of overcoming great odds to achieve their goals and dreams. They’ve been through so much in their lives, and they are amazing people who constantly inspire and serve everywhere they go.
For anyone like me who has ever wished to capture a personal history or a family history, you know the task can be a bit overwhelming and time-consuming. It’s one beyond most person’s abilities and time constraints. and I think that’s precisely why so few people ever achieve it to the degree they hope to. It’s hard to sit down and spend weeks jotting down memories.
This is where one of the coolest companies completely has your back. StoryWorth is a company striving to make storytelling, capturing storytellers’ stories, and memory recording easy!
Here’s how Storyworth works:
You sign up storytellers via email to contribute to your book. You choose the frequency, but either every week or every month they will receive one email prompt asking them to tell a story from their life or their history. Also, you can customize the story prompts with your own questions, or choose from a list of pre-written prompts.
The storyteller has the option to write a quick email back, or record their story for transcription. It’s compiled into their database, and after a year’s worth of stories are collected (20-35 questions), a beautifully bound book is made and shipped to you to have one of the most memorable and sentimental items you can own.
You’ll can choose to insert picture box formats, review the draft, and make any adjustments needed from their free e-book maker site. From there you can check your PDF and send it to print to create a beautiful bound book at the end of the subscription year.
It really takes an overwhelming process and makes it simple and so easy to tackle.
I knew this would be the perfect sentimental gift for my mom! She just returned from a trip to her hometown to see where her parents are buried and came home with books of pictures just begging for history to be told and recorded. She’s been pulling out the pictures a lot and she lights up telling me stories of her grandparents, her parents, and her childhood on her grandparents’ farm.
I love that I can make a hardcover book of her life. But, I can also gift a year of Storyworth questions with the intent of her answering questions about my grandparents. They would both be beautiful hardcover books we’d love to make a dozen copies of and gift to siblings and cousins. Yep, it’s easy to order additional copies of your book and send additional books to loved ones!
StoryWorth Review and Gift Idea
StoryWorth has a really awesome promo going on right now for the holidays that makes it super affordable too! I mean I know you can’t put a price on memories and family history. However, this really does make it the perfect price range for the type of gift you’d give your parents.
Maybe you have parents who have everything already and are hard to shop for. Or, maybe you want to go in with a sibling and show you really care about your family (something my parents say is their greatest hope, that we all grow closer as they age). Either way, a StoryWorth subscription is such a great holiday gift idea and one I’m so grateful I’ve had the chance to personally try. It’s the perfect sentimental gift idea for families!
We love this gift for Christmas when you need a gift for parents or in-laws who have everything. But a Storyworth subscription is also perfect for so many other occasions! Think Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, or even as an anniversary gift for your spouse! I mean any age and time is a great time to document life thoughts and a storyteller’s stories!
It’s one of those
