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.
