Alright ladies and gentlemen! I know that it’s only January, but February 14th will be here before you know it! Valentine’s Day is normally a time where you want to give a thoughtful gift to show the person you love how you’re really feeling. Well, I found the PERFECT gift!! What’s so great about this gift is that it can be for anyone, not just a significant other. You also can’t buy this in a store. It is almost completely customizable, so you will have the only one like yours!

So now you’re probably thinking, alright well what is it?! About a year ago, I saw a pin on Pinterest about a “Love Book”. It was intriguing, so I looked into it a little more. When I got on the Love Book website, I saw that you could make your own personal book tailored to your story. Since I was only a few months into my relationship at the time, I saved the pin and forgot about it for a while.

Fast forward to December 2017. My 1 year anniversary was coming up and I remembered about this website. So I went to the website and decided to just set up my own book to see what it could look like. I found that you can almost completely customize your own book to your own personal story! I love that I was able to remember special occasions throughout the last year of my relationship and put them into a keepsake book. The website was extremely user friendly and you can save your work and go back later if you can’t finish it all at once.

How can you make your story?

You first will choose your characters and their features. There are tons of options to make them look just how you want! My picture shows the characteristics you can customize: eyes, mouth, hair, beard/mustache, etc. You will choose these from each character before you continue to your story. Next, you can choose what occasion the book is for, your cover, and if you want a hardback or softback back.

Next, you start building your book! You will be given different types of cover pages to pick from. There are so many, and your bound to find one that suites you! You are then able to choose from special occasions, and this will give you page options that will relate to your story.

I decided to dedicate each page to a specific memory I had in our first year together. While you’re picking your pages, you can search from different “themes” to fit your story. Below, I have 2 pages out of my book for examples. I searched for “dogs” and got the picture below. I then was able to edit the text and the word bubble to say what I wanted! We went on a beach trip for my birthday this year that I wanted to include. I searched “beach” and there were several options that came up. I chose the one below!

The book came with a minimum of 20 pages, which was more than I expected, and I was able to fill up my book with a ton of memories!! After I ordered my book, it came within 3 days, and it was in discreet packaging. This was great because my boyfriend usually gets the mail! My book turned out so cute and just how I expected it to look!! One thing that I wanted to do, but didn’t get the chance to was color it in with colored pencil…but that’s only because I like color!

Overall this was such a great gift! My boyfriend had never seen one before and loved how thoughtful it was. I highly recommend this book. There are so many options, there is something for everyone!!

  1. This is such a cute idea! Would definitely consider something like this for my mom as a mother’s day gift. I know that sounds random, but she likes the cheesy, emotional stuff so I know she’d appreciate.
