StoryWorth Book: The Perfect Gift
You might remember that I wrote about StoryWorth books a few years ago. I ended up giving my mother with a StoryWorth book membership and I can’t even tell you what a neat experience it has been.
StoryWorth is a hardcover book that tells YOUR story. Or their story.
Giving this type of gift is priceless, and I think that this is the most fabulous idea for a Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift. I even love the idea of gifting this to yourself. I mean, the gift of story is a beautiful thing, truly priceless.

Everyone has a Family History Story to Tell
Now that I’ve experienced the process of gifting someone a StoryWorth book, and watching them go through the creation process, I can truly say that this is a gift that is a little life changing.
Do you know what your mother’s favorite t.v. show was in high school? Or who your father’s best childhood friend was? What about their favorite college memories? Local hangouts? Grade school friends?
Watching my mom write and tell her story, was an amazing opportunity for me, and I think she enjoyed the process as well.
We all have a story but sometimes life gets in the way and the people in our life never know the “before”. The life they had before you came along, and the things that make them who they are.
StoryWorth makes this possible and the process itself is one that can also be an enjoyable and bonding experience. Plus, they make it affordable. I mean, you couldn’t even come close to publishing a beautiful book for this price.

One thing that I love about purchasing these books is that you can purchase and immediately send, no need to ship anything or worry about planning ahead (in other words, this also makes a great last minute gift idea!) … your gift will be send via email just in time for gift giving.
How to make a StoryWorth book
When you purchase a StoryWorth book as a gift, your recipient will receive an email (that you can customize!) announcing your gift. This guides them into the process of how it works.
Each week you will be able to select and send mom a different question via email. At the end of the year, her answers will be bound in a beautiful keepsake book.
StoryWorth provides sample questions to choose from, or you can write your own.
This book and experience can be as personalize as you want it to be, and you can also go at your own pace. Send them weekly or skip a week if life gets busy or mom falls behind.
Once you select questions, StoryWorth will email out the questions and my favorite part is that when they get answered, you can receive mom’s answer in an email, how cool is that?
You can even add other recipients as well, so the whole family can enjoy mom’s stories or you can keep them private until the book is revealed. It’s all up to you!
Here are some sample questions to give you an idea of how this might work:
I’ll be honest, I did very little work in creating my mom’s book. She did all of the question selection. My mom is a beautiful writer, so she enjoyed the process and uploaded some wonderful family photos that I had never seen. She even ended up doing some online research and included some genealogy information, old newspaper clippings and more!
These books are also beautifully put together and bound professionally, so not only is this a neat finished product, but very high quality as well.

Think this is something your mom or dad might love? The folks at StoryWorth have created a special discount JUST for She Saved readers.
This offer is good through Father’s Day, perfect for gift giving and honestly, even if it’s a last minute gift idea, still one of the most awesome gifts you could give, in my opinion!
Filed now under my very favorite things and one of the best gift ideas I’ve found, I know that others will feel the very same way. It feels so wonderful to find the perfect gift for someone you love.
*If you are thinking of writing your own story, I also think THAT is a perfect gift as well.
