Dear Mum (sketch design) is an award-winning journal filled with over 60 fun and inspiring questions carefully created to inspire any mother to tell her story – probably one of the most valuable gifts you will ever buy. 

Tap here to have a look inside this journal.

You will have seen great photos of your Mum when she was a young lady, but do you know what she was thinking as she posed for the camera? Yes, she really did have a life before you came along and her life changed forever as she took on the responsibility of being a mother.

Everyone has stories to share about their own amazing life and it is so important to find ways to capture and treasure them. Dear Mum 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 what her own parents were really like, where she went on holiday when she was a child, how she met your Dad and what was that special piece of music that they had ‘just for them’. What about your own relationship with her, what did she think of you as a child, what really made her proud and what advice would she give you now?

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, her birthday, Christmas or just because you care …

Also available in an alternative design, or you can personalise this journal to tailor it just for you.

Share the things that really matter with Journals Of A Lifetime.
Made with love, from you to me.

Memories are to be cherished

For various reasons I never really caught up with my mum about her memories of my father who died when I was three. I bought one of these for her and she is so excited about sharing things about my childhood that I, through grief, blanked out.

What a superb idea. It sounds like a dreadful thing to say, but don't wait until it is too late, memories are to be cherished, but once gone, they are gone forever.


I can't wait to get it back

Bought this for my Mum for Mother's Day and we both love it, it's a well made item (not cheap looking) and just a lovely idea. Lots of pages with one question on each so lots of space to add piccies and writing.

My mum is now writing her responses out in rough and practising her handwriting as she wants to give it back to me all lovely looking. It's going to take her a good while to complete but I can't wait to get it back, it will be something I pass down to my children as a reminder of their Nan.


Such an amazing book to treasure forever

Priceless – such an amazing book to treasure forever. I am always on the look out for 'something different'.. after finding this book I read the great reviews and decided to buy it.

Amazing !! I am so impressed by the book, the idea of it is brilliant!! and when I get it back I know I will treasure it forever and it will no doubt be treasured for many years to come as its passed on throughout the coming years etc.

My mum was totally amazed when she opened it at Xmas and was touched that I would want to buy it and have her fill it in for me. Really I think this is one of the best things I have ever bought. Its not only a fantastic idea but the book is actually really lovely.. seems that it will last for all the years it will no doubt be read/stored etc.

Really excited about getting it back all filled in - I suggested my mum give it back to me as 'my birthday present' from her in May ;) what a lovely present that would be.

Wish I had found these little book's years ago - would have loved to have been able to have bought the Dad one as well.

If your tempted - just do it !! Seriously - I cant imagine anyone being disappointed with it.
