Once a Year Books are the ultimate memory keepers and this soft grey and peach Koala beauty is a total knockout. This is my go-to gift when asked to be a godparent and it is perfect for Christenings when you are not sure what to give, it is that special!
The big difference between the Once A Year Book and traditional baby books is that rather than going into the nitty gritty of babyhood, this amazing product brings together 18 years of memories.
Each page of the concertina style book has space for a photo taken at age 5 for example, then on the back, you can write significant events and memories from that year.
Also, included is a Chatter Book for you to record your child’s utterings whether comedic or genius.
To top it all off, the set comes in a sweet wooden box. I can imagine looking through the beautiful book every year as my child grew to reflect on their journey. To be quite honest I’m tearing up just thinking about it!
You might ask, why do I need this as well as a baby book? Well, baby books are hard work if you are not into that type of thing plus they only cover the first year.
Having said this they are SO worth it. I love that my mother filled out my baby book. I quite like knowing who arrived at the hospital to see me in all my glory and who attended my first birthday. The ‘first haircut’ section has also been very useful in proving that I once had blond curls!
If you had to fill out a baby book each year it would be like a full-time job but one photo and a page where you can jot down some thoughts do not take long and you’ll be so glad you did. So, in short, you need both!
Once A Year Books are hand bound using sustainable materials and water-based inks plus they are made in Australia!
The Nursery also stocks the Bear and Bunny versions of this amazing treasure.
