Well, now you can still give a gift book even if you're not particularly creative with MyLoveBook. The website http://www.mylovebook.com/ is easy to navigate, and they have "story starters" for you to tell that special person in your life how much they mean to you.
I was given the opportunity to create my own MyLoveBook. I gave the code to my mother as she thought this would make a nice gift to her sister for Christmas. (We shop early around here!)
My mother isn't extremely computer savvy, but she did fine creating this book. What she made was an 18 question, 35 page book, complete with dedication page.
While this book sounds like it's for a spouse, you can create it for anyone you love. My mother did find it a bit difficult to find enough questions appropriate for her relationship with her sister. I think it would be great if in the future MyLoveBook would add a way you could create your own story starters for those who are a bit more creative.
You can add funny comments, too, if you like. For instance, one answer my mother wrote was this:
Your most impressive talent:
being able to spell "automobile."
Of course, this is a joke between my aunt and my mother. Growing up, my aunt always tormented my mother by not allowing her to swing on their one swing until she spelled a word correctly. Being five years older, my aunt would ask my mother to spell long words such as "automobile" until she was tired of playing on the swing, and then ask her to spell something simple like "car".
This is one of the great things about MyLoveBook -- you can personalize it how you wish. If Mom would have wanted to have been serious and told of a talent my aunt has she finds impressive, she could have. Instead, she decided to be funny with this one.
The book measures 8 3/4 inches by 5 3/4 inches. There are three different covers to choose from. Because this was for my aunt, this is the cover we chose:
The inside of the book looks fantastic. On the left side on each page there is a beautiful design. The selection my mother wrote is on the right side of each two-page spread.
I know I am looking forward to Christmas when my mother is planning on giving this to my aunt. There are answers my mother gave that are both sentimental and some so funny I know it will cause all of us to start telling stories of mishaps and humorous events in our family's history. My mother and I were very pleased with the finished book!
