My phone is jam packed with photos of Aidan and Finn – like most parents – but that is as far as they go because I never manage to print them off meaning baby books and scrapbooks don’t take long to become redundant. I actually don’t even have one for Finn. With technology taking over most ‘old school’ ways of saving memories the ‘Memories of Growing Up‘ memory stick is the perfect scrapbook alternative for me. It will be a great 18th or 21st gift for the boys to have all their childhood pictures in one place.
The USB memory stick comes pre loaded with folder divided into age groups containing sub folders for major milestones and events. Of course you always create your own folders but I actually think the preloaded folders have everything covered.
Another idea is to take a photo of the boys everyday and put them onto the USB stick as a great way to watch them change over the years. I plan to photograph all their ‘art work’, school reports and awards and save those too.
The appearance is beautiful – a sturdy silver border with simply but stylish ‘Memories of Growing Up’ printed material. The stick comes in a matching box with foam interior. This would be an ideal gift for new parents and parents to be.It is available in two sizes; 16gb (£21.99) and 32gb (£28.99) and Memories of Growing Up offer worldwide shipping.
Memories of Growing up has several other products for recording your children’s early years, like their Tall Tape. This is a great way to record you children height over time especially if you are renting or haven’t settled on your ‘forever home’ as it can be rolled up and taken with you. Tall Tape can also been used horizontally meaning that you can start recording from birth.
They also do a range of memory jewellery that include a capsule to hold something special to you – maybe your babies first lock of hair, their hospital tag or small message.
I think this brand has some very unique products which would make great gifts for parents and grandparents. Camilla has created a great range that allows a child to be tracked from birth to adulthood, and each piece is compact making it easy to transport if necessary.
Memories of Growing Up has also decided to give away a memories stick and a tall tape to allow you to start recording your memories. You can enter using the Gleam widget below and this giveaway is open WORLDWIDE!
