Words Of Wisdom

After losing her mother to cancer, one woman found comfort and inspiration in the art of letter writing. She wished she had a piece of her mother to hang on to, a keepsake of her life and personality--and realized she wanted her children to have that same inside look into her life. After joining forces with two friends who yearned for the same experience, the Mother and Daughter Letter Book was born.

A nostalgic set of 40 cards are meant to be sent, shared and treasured until the very last envelope is sealed. Need a little inspiration to get started? Look to the hundreds of personal prompts that encourage you to share facets of your personality that family otherwise wouldn't see. Once completed, cards find their way back into the secret pockets of the book. Rich with sentiment, each personalized book is meaningful way to honor your bond, and be passed down from generation to generation as an heirloom from the heart. Made in China.

Whitney Biggs

When faced with the untimely death of her mother to cancer, and then a bout with the disease herself, Whitney Biggs realized that her small children would grow up not knowing their grandmother or, possibly, even herself. Gathering the little notes and lists she found in her mother's desk, Biggs decided to make sure her young ones would have something to remember her by in the event of a tragedy, and that others everywhere could do the same.

Treasured Passages is a collection of letter books for people of all walks of life: mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and couples. They were created to fill a void when instant communication isn't possible, and to serve as treasured keepsakes to pass down through the generations. Biggs and her partners, Sabra Miller and Janice Maples, believe chronicled memories are the best gifts you can give your loved ones, and that saying "yes to life" and taking pleasure in the little things is the way to be. collection

      It's a really cute gift idea that I haven't ever seen elsewhere. I am college aged and don't get to spend a lot of time with my mother, so this is a nice way to stay close!

                  Comments about MOTHER & DAUGHTER LETTER BOOK:

                  Excellent Concept for introverts. I bought two: one for me and one for my daughter. We both love it.
                  I gave her up for adoption. But now, as adults, we are getting to know each other. Since we are both introverts, this box set will help us get the conversation started and keep it going.
                  The only con is the flimsy box it came in. Its already coming apart. I'll have to get something else to keep my treasures in.

                          Seemed like a good idea but there really isn't awhole lot to it except for a few cards and envelopes. Also, seem like there aren't a lot of scrap book like pages most of the size of the book is from the box with the cards and envelopes.

                                      I gave this to my mom as a gift and started it before giving it to her. I love how it is similar to an art journal and there is nothing more precious than handwritten letters. Most of the journal prompts seem interesting, although there are a few that are cheesy, I like that you can make it what you will and use what you want. For someone who is incredibly sentimental this gift is perfect.

                                        I bought this for my daughter and myself for Christmas. It is a creative design and will be a valuable keepsake. The only downside is the keepsake box
                                        Is somewhat flimsy in construction and might not hold up over time without reinforcement.

                                        What a great way to say all the things you want to share, but never quite get around to telling each other.

                                        love this book and the thoughts behind it for Mothers and Daughters. After just losing my Mother to cancer in Dec. this seems so much more important to do this for my daughter. Thank you for sharing...

                                        Holding these sweet letters and cards in your hands is comforting. As a mother of two daughters and a granddaughter I think you better do some for mothers and sons, too. Love the concept and the execution. This is talent with heart. Bellisimo!

                                        Somewhat similar to other ideas I have seen, but takes us back to older times when people really did write to each other! Too bad it's not made in the USA.

                                        i would like it better if it was a journal with a topic and then you write in it.

                                        Why is it made in China? I hope Uncommon Goods shares my philosophy. I like the idea and I like the look of the product. I just wish it were made in the USA.

                                        In an age where communication is instant, it's lovely to have a keepsake that will last for generations and not be deleted like yesterday's text message.

                                        This is an awesome idea! I started one when my children were born. I didn't know then how impactful it might be for them one day. I lost my mom to cancer 2 weeks ago and though I have many fond memories, a letter book from her would've been wonderful.

                                        I don't see the issue with it being made in China. The item is awesome! It seems to me that the same people who would complain about this $35 item being made in China would also complain if it were a $55 US-made item. Do you want American-made or do you want it to be affordable?

                                        This is a fantastic idea, for all those who love letter-writing and for those who treasure memories.Made in China or Made in the U.S., it is totally worth its weight in paper.

                                        I could MAKE something far more valuable for far less than this. Cute, but but no thanks.
