        This idea is for the person who wants their thoughts, life highs and lows kept as part of their history. Some day these can be passed on to their family.

          I bought 2 of these as gifts. The recipients looo...ved their gift. I plan on ordering more. This is the most practical, creative, alternative to Journal writing which can be tedious.
          The letter format, artwork & stickers of this product makes it a classy gift!

                I enjoyed using this book with my partner. I helps to open up feelings and thoughts regarding the future. In addition, it made a wonderful anniversary gift. With this gift, you're able to make use of it anytime you feel like and can turn it into projects that you decide you want to do. I love how they give the feel of a "Real letter" and the addition of including the dates to reopen the letter for a later date.

                      I gave this to my dad for his 50th birthday. He loved it. The design of the letters and envelopes is beautiful and they come in a sturdy hardback book cover. The prompts are very thought-provoking and should provide him with plenty to think about for the next 50 years! :)

                              Comments about LETTERS TO MY FUTURE SELF:

                              This is a fantastic gift in which the person writes letters to him/herself, dates it, and indicates when each letter is to be opened and read in the future. There are indicated categories such as family, a day I won't forget, love, etc. and some envelopes with stationery that are blank for the writer to decide upon. The envelope and stationery are connected for simplicity and all of the envelopes are combined cleverly by a rope binder within the hard backed cover. It is compact while still easy to use. I ordered one, and when it arrived I was so impressed I ordered two more for other graduates. It's meaningful and unique and not a fluff gift that will be forgotten.

                                      I can think of a few people for whom this would make a really special gift

                                      Laurie

                                      Interesting idea that can be replicated at home by anyone BUT it might make a nice gift for a graduate, newly married couple, new parents or anyone embarking on life's adventures.

                                      Love this. Would love to see the difference even if it's only a few days or weeks or years .

                                      I love this. I have done it mysel in the past and been amazed at what it revealed to me about myself over a period of 1 or 2 years' span...and then to look back on many years later. So clever to have everything available and ready to go. Great for yourself or a gift to a loved one.

                                      Fantastic idea; this is more than just a simple journal or even a prompt journal (because it is like that, too) -- it's the real visible tangible purpose given to it that makes it unique and very memorable.
