Give the Gift of a (Very Personal) Book

sample cover: book of child's art work

I've written before about gifts that won't become clutter - and I've just found another great list of gift suggestions provided by Australian organizer Lissanne Oliver of Sorted!.

But organizer Ariane Benefit just made me aware of something else that would make a terrific gift for the right person: a beautiful hardcover coffee table book of your child's best art work, from ForKeeps. Update on September 17, 2011: ForKeeps has disappeared.

Another wonderful option: Have someone's life story turned into a beautiful book, created by Storyzon.

Matthew: I'm always glad to help people find good gift ideas - having seen so many poor gifts that just become clutter.

Check out the ART:archives for a green alternative to archiving and preserving children's artwork. They create a digital slideshow of your children's artwork so as not to use anymore paper and to reduce clutter!
