Dear Nan (Sketch Collection)
An inspiring guided memory journal
Dear Nan (sketch design) is an award-winning journal filled with over 60 fun and inspiring questions carefully created to inspire any grandmother to tell her story – probably one of the most valuable gifts you will ever buy.
Everyone has stories to share about their own amazing life and it is so important to find ways to capture and treasure them. Dear Nan contains 60 carefully designed questions to ask her about her life. Ask her to complete it carefully, adding photos and memorabilia along the way.
Find out how things have changed throughout her life, what things did she do as a child that are different from today. What were her own parents really like and what adventures has she had in her life. Discover what your own mum or dad was like when they were young! What about your own relationship with your grandmother, what are her favourite memories of the times you have spent together and is there any advice she would like to give you?
When you get her completed journal returned to you, this will be one of the most emotional presents you have ever received.
A great gift for Mother’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, her birthday, an anniversary, Christmas or just because you care …
Some questions found in the journal:
What are your earliest memories?
What do you remember about your holidays as a child?
What was the first piece of music that you bought?
Tell me about the jobs you have had . . .
Tell me about the things that make you laugh . . .
Tell me something you think I won’t know about you . . .
This Journal is based on the stock-item Dear Grandma and has the alternative name Nan used instead of Grandma. You can also choose to personalise the Dear Grandma journal yourself and tailor it by calling it Dear Nan and amending some of the questions.
Share the things that really matter with Journals Of A Lifetime.
