I posted in one of my pre-Christmas gift ideas posts about my plan to get Mother Daughter journals for my girls for Christmas. They were honestly one of the gifts I was most excited about this year once I settled on ordering from Minted. Here’s what we ended up with:
Aren’t they cute? They’re similar, but a little different. And I loved being able to customize them for my girls so easily. I also ordered sketch journals for each of the girls with unlined pages. I had so many fun ideas with all the choices available on Minted!
Jenny’s is a Mother/Daughter journal since she’s all grown up (in her opinion).
And Reagan’s is Mommy/Daughter.
On both I chose to put the date started in the lower right-hand corner in case we manage to save these for the future (it would be a miracle).
I wrote an initial note to each of them before I wrapped the journals and gave them to the girls for Christmas explaining that we could write anything we like to each other in these journals – even things that might be hard to talk about out loud.
Or, you know, they can write about the Percy Jackson books, which they’re also willing to discuss out loud.
I’m hoping this is another new habit we stick with! So far, we haven’t lost them, and we have written back and forth twice. Pretty good for a week into the new year!
