One of the most memorable gifts I received as a child was a journal. Although my entries were somewhat bland (along the lines of ‘Today I went to school.’), I vividly recall feeling thrilled by the blank pages that lay open in front of me.
That’s possibly when my love affair with stationery began and to this day I still relish the first blank page of a new notebook or journal.
Perhaps the joy of writing can be imparted to our computer savvy babes with these fabulous journals from Two Little Boys. Each is a simple but colourful and appealing unlined notebook with clever titles that hint at the secrets they will hold, such as ‘I’m going to be really very brainy and this is my plan….’ or ‘I’m going to be a rockstar and this is my plan….’ There are thirteen titles, so there’s something to suit almost everyone’s secret aspirations (not just kids!).
Two Little Boys have lots of other goodies on offer. My kids could certainly while away large chunks of time with the ‘Something to keep you happy….’ books – a compact take on Taro Gomi drawing books and designed for those occasions when you need kids to ‘behave quietly’ (like weddings).
Or make your kids official family reporters when a new baby arrives with the ‘This is my baby…’ play packs. Each play pack includes a preloaded reusable camera and a special notebook to record all the important details. It’s a great way to get them involved in the arrival of a new baby and would make a fabulous gift.
‘I’ve got a plan….’ journals are £7 each, ‘Something to keep you happy…’ books are £6 each and play packs are £17. Two Little Boys ship to Australia.
