From Me To You

Take a moment and keep in touch through generations with this keepsake letter book. Brimming with personal prompts, this nostalgic set of 40 cards is meant to be sent and shared between grandparents and their grandchildren to create meaningful and lasting memories. Once completed, stow the letters in the secret pockets of the book so you can look back, remember your bond, and pass it down from generation to generation.

Artist Whitney Scott Biggs's life was turned upside-down when her mother died suddenly from cancer while Biggs was pregnant with her first child. Going through her mother's desk, she discovered scribbled lists, notes, and handwritten tidbits that became her treasured keepsakes. With her friends Sabra Miller and Janice Maples, she created these letter journals as a way for generations to connect and remember each other in a profound way.

"Kindness inspires me," says Whitney Biggs. It's this simple mantra that keeps the artist going. After losing her mother to cancer and surviving a bout with the disease herself, the Knoxville-based mom collaborated with Sabra Miller and Janice Maples to create Treasured Passages, a collection of personalized letter books to help loved ones learn more about each other.

"Our books are about building and remembering relationships," she says, adding that she hopes each one-of-a-kind tome lives on in the hearts of those who fill it out. "When someone gives you a present like a letter book, it represents hope for a stronger relationship. It might just stir your soul."

I received the book as a gift from my granddaughter for my birthday. She is 13 and in the book is a birthday page that she filled out and mailed to me along with the book. It has the most amazing questions like 3 qualities I love in you...you inspire me because...what I have learned from you. It was the best birthday card I have ever gotten and it came from this precious book! As a grandparent I am always looking for ways to stay involved in my grandchildren's life and this is such a unique way. Thank you UnCommon Goods for always finding the perfect gifts to give and receive!

Poor quality

The quality was very poor. I had to pay shipping both ways. It was especially not what I wanted to give a special friend as a gift.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Grandparent & Grandchild Letter Book Set:

      I ordered one of the Mother-Daughter versions of these books for my mom for Mother's Day and she loved it! I grew up as a very independent kid and when I started into my 20s my job took over my life. A few years ago I started to realize just how little I know about my family and that life is short and I'd like to know them more. This box is perfect because it helps to establish that missing connection, especially for those who don't know how to sit down and start the conversation to kick it all off. I got two of these for my grandparents and I can't wait to learn more about them!

            This will be so much fun for my granddaughter and me. We'll be able to share our thoughts, stories and passions, and it's something she'll have long after I'm gone and can possibly share with her children so they'll "know" their great-grandmother a little better

                      I got this for my grandmother for Grandparents' Day. My grandmother loves to write, and so I wanted to find a way to use writing to help us bond. She sends me letters and I send her letters back (she and I live in two different states). It's been so fun getting to learn more about her and bonding with her even though we are far apart.
