A Gift that Keeps On Giving

Your first anniversary is coming up, and you need to find the perfect gift, but what should it be? It needs to be something personal, something loving without being too mushy, and a card simply isn't going to cut it.

Since the first anniversary is traditionally associated with paper gifts, why not share this romantic anniversary journal? Handmade exclusively for UncommonGoods by the artisans at Rag and Bone Bindery, the journal invites a couple to share details of their lives together each year. The title Paper to Silk refers to the traditional gifts given for the first twelve years of marriage, and each page has prompts cleverly built around that idea. Year one (paper) asks what the two of you are on the same page about, and what the year's headline moments have been; the seventh year (wool) asks how you have become more closely knit. This is a gift that will only grow more meaningful with time, as the two of you continue to commemorate your love together. Handmade in Rhode Island.

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.

Comments about Paper to Silk Anniversary Journal:

I bought this for someone special for a shower gift which she had on his list. If I had seen it in person first, I would not have gotten it. Since I bought it online, it looked nice. It was small, with a beautiful royal blue "linen" cover but the pages inside were not as nice. Basic printing and nothing special on the pages. I was diaappointed.

    Comments about Paper to Silk Anniversary Journal:

    I purchased this journal as an anniversary gift for my husband. I really like how the journaling topics are unique to each anniversary year. I was so disappointed when I opened the package. The book is very small & flimsy. While the cover was a pretty color, the book was bound together with two strings. It looked like something I could make in an hour long craft class, not something you'd pay a lot of money for online. While the topics are more clever than other anniversary journals I've seen, I returned this in favor of one with better quality and that has pages for fifty years (not just 13). Someone needs to build on this concept - extend it to 50 years and actually bind the book in a professional manner. Uncommon Goods should stop selling this product until then. What a waste of money.

        Super cute and unique wedding anniversary gift. I think that it's small and meaningful book to create with your own memories. You'll keep around from one year to the next and have fun looking back at these first 12 years later on in your marriage. I bought this for my husband and I for our first anniversary together. :)

        Very Small

        Comments about Paper to Silk Anniversary Journal:

        I bought this product as a gift. The gift wrapping was done very well but I only opened it to check out the journal. It's very plan on the outside and much smaller then I expected. Cute for a wedding present though I wish it covered more years - I am hoping my friend doesn't think I just expect the marriage to last just 12 years!

            My father got remarried in March 2012 and I bought this as a wedding gift for him & his new wife. It is beautiful and I think they will enjoy filling out this journal each anniversary. Only thing that I would change is that it only goes up to the 12th anniversary; I wish it included more anniversaries even if just adding bigger milestones (15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 75, etc)
