In today’s world of technology and fast-paced schedules, it’s nice to slow down a bit and actually put pen to paper. What’s even better is giving the written word as a gift, but sometimes it’s hard to come up with new ideas outside of beautiful stationery sets or hand-written love notes.

Introducing the Ten Year Journal. This sturdy, leather-bound book allows you to take a few moments each day to record anything you want – the weather, activities you enjoyed, thoughts or messages to loved ones – for a total of ten years.

Seems daunting at first, but once you open the book, you realize that a daily habit of journaling doesn’t have to take long (even two minutes is fine!) especially with the limited space you’re given per daily entry. 

It not only allows for short daily entries, but there are spaces dedicated to longer messages as well. What a perfect gift to give your spouse after ten years of marriage, or to give a newlywed couple at the start of their marriage. Beginning a 10-year journal when a baby is born is also a fun way to commemorate a new beginning.

It does have the year pre-populated in the journal, so make sure you are purchasing a copy where the year hasn’t already started or you will be forced to journal by memory or you will have blank entries.

$39.95 per book seems like a very affordable price for the quality and functionality of the product. Simply log on to tenyearjournal.com to purchase your own copy or buy one for a loved one you know will put it to good use.
