What I Wish For You...

A truly meaningful keepsake that captures the joyous elation surrounding the birth of a baby, 12 Wishes for Baby is a journal that you fill with the hopes, dreams, wishes and promises you have for the new person in your life.

Covered in darling cotton rocket-ship print fabric, this journal features 12 whimsical pages to be filled in by a parent, grandparent, friend or family member. With thoughtful prompts such as "This is a picture of me when I was your age," "When I heard you were on the way, I thought..." and "A special place I hope you'll visit someday" this sweet gift is something that both baby and mom and dad will cherish for years to come. Handmade in Rhode Island by Jason Thompson.

Jason Thompson began making hand-bound books in 1991 after being inspired by one that his wife gave him as a birthday present. The original books were made with simple hand tools: a knife, bone folder, glue brush, needle and thread.

As his company grew, Thompson hired more people and moved the business to six increasingly larger studios. His wife Ilira eventually joined the team as general manager, and now, Thompson employs a team of skilled artisans who create quality albums and books from hand.

      The 12 Wishes Book will be a gift from my husband to his first grandson...he is very excited and has enjoyed thinking about (and capturing in writing) all the wonderful things the two of them will do together. Originally planned as a shower gift, my husband decided to give it to our son and daughter-in-law at the hospital when our grandson is born in mid March.

      I bought this as a gift for a friend's new baby, and was really surprised when I received it because it was a lot smaller than I expected. I still plan to give it to her because it is a good idea and it is cute, but again, really small.

      Comments about 12 Wishes for Baby:

      A very cute book and a unique gift for new parents, grandparents, or any friend or relative, as a shower gift or even for a child as he/she grows up. But it is much too expensive for content of the book. Not enough pages and not enough room for any lengthy "wishes."

        I bought this for my pregnant sister-in-law. It's such a great idea. I would have loved to be able to read something like this that my parents wrote about me. I'm going to get one for each kid I have one day.

              Wasn't sure what to get my brothers (uncles to be) for Christmas. This book will be perfect. I love the gender non-specific, fabric cover with super cute rockets blasting through space. The question prompts are thoughtful and I can't wait to see my brothers' responses. This will be a great book for them to give to my baby.

              I have given this as a baby gift to 4 friends now and everyone just loved it. They said they have never seen anything like it and how special it is for their baby. I'm now pregnant myself and will buy one for myself if I don't receive it as a gift! It's a nice size book too - not too small, not too large - and would be nice to display in the nursery once the parents fill it out. It would also make a good gift to grandparents.

              This book was so sweet and made a perfect gift for a friend who's expecting. It's a great way to send "good vibes" to the bun in the oven, and will hopefully be something you can treasure with the little one for years to come as they read about what you were thinking before they came along. While it requires some thoughtful effort to put together, that extra personalization is also a great quality-- it's a flexible and very personalizable gift to create for someone, or to give them as an opportunity to put their thoughts on paper.
              The hand-crafted quality of this book is apparent from every angle, and makes it an even more precious memento. I'll definitely keep it on my short list for friends and family who are expecting...

              I gave this as a shower gift and though it was a little smaller than I'd expected its sentimental value is immeasurable. It's sweet and dear and gives parents a chance to reflect and record wishes for baby. Very nice!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery, packaging, and tracking were all top notch, as I've come to expect from UnCommonGoods services - you do a good thing quite well!
