I know I use the word genius much too often but how would you call this: a photo album with room for exactly 18 photos so each year of your child’s life you put one (and only one!) in so after 18 years you have one extraordinary memento and a journal of his/her childhood!
Laikonik Once-A-Year-Books are hand bound using acid free, archival quality paper and book covers are screen-printed on industrial hemp with gorgeous Polish folk-art motif (Kasia, the lady behind it all comes from Poland).
There is also a chatter book that comes along in order to journal the things kids say at different stages of their childhood that you don’t want to forget.
And the cherry on the top is the beautiful matching hemp bag to store the book in that is also screen-printed! I need to close my mouth now.
I get quite a few emails asking me about the perfect gifts to give at birth of baby and this must be one of them if not the most perfect one I’ve ever came across! I need to get one for the baby on the way and one for Tila as well – oh I just wish I knew about it before. But the good thing is it doesn’t take much time to document each year at all!
Books are made in Australia and you can order them online for about €65 (shipping included). But know there are many more sweet treats in their store before you enter! Like New Baby and Our Wedding Photograms that come with custom envelopes so you can send a special memento to the people closest to you. And much much more things I dare you not to be tempted by. Don’t say you weren’t warned!
