I Love {Storyworth}

For Christmas 2021, I gave each of the grandparents a subscription to Storyworth. Over the course of 2022 and into early 2023, Juju, Mimi and Epaw shared their stories and recorded their memories. For Christmas 2023, I was able to give each of the grown kids and grands these beautiful books.

Each week, each of the grands was emailed a question from Storyworth. They could answer the question, choose an alternate question, or create their own question.

They provided their “story” for the week via email, and I was copied on them.

They had the option to upload photos to compliment their story, too.

At the end of the year – it took us a little longer than a year – the stories were bound into these keepsake books. Each subscription comes with one book, but I purchased additional books so that all of the grandkids could have one for each of their grandparents, and so that the adult kids that wanted one could have one too.

Each of the grands wrote an inscription for each recipient.

There were certainly weeks that this felt like a daunting project, and I absolutely heard a few complaints from each of the grands during the process :-) But, they turned out to be absolutely beautiful keepsakes and I have so enjoyed reading stories from my parents and Honey’s mom that I never knew about, and likely never would have known about.

I’m not sure that the grands have cracked the covers of these books, yet, but I truly believe one day they will. They are so fortunate to have three loving and active grandparents in their lives!

I hope these books will last for generations and be treasured by family members even yet to come.

Tuck this idea away for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Christmas 2024. You won’t regret it!

  1. We did this for my Dad (b. 1940)

    It was fun for him to have the prompts. And if a prompt didn’t resonate he’d scroll to another or even go rogue;)

    His children appreciate it. Like you – given fact how the grands performed on family trivia Jeopardy- not sure any of the 6 have looked at. One day they’ll “get it” though.

    Great gift!!

      1. Categories such as:
        Jobs, Ancestors, Vacation (mishaps), pets etc …. of your generation and previous … kids are the contestants (or sometimes kids and the kids inlaw) See who’s been listens to family spin the yarn :)

  2. What a great gift idea! I always complain how difficult it is to buy for my 80-something Mom. Now, I have great gift that can be passed down to the grands.
