  • Journal Memory Boxes

    Journal-memory-boxes

    BY REQUEST This acid-free, 100 percent cotton journal features a suede-lined compartment where you can store mementos. The box closes with a magnetic clap, so your treasures will stay put. You could use it as a baby book, storing a locket of hair, baby booties, and a snip of blankie fabric. Or use it as a travel journal and secret away bits of stone from the piazza, a wine label, and a stalk of lavender from the guest-cottage garden.

  • Hopping Bunnies Album

    Hopping-bunnies-album

    BY REQUEST Joslyn writes, “I’m looking for a good baby journal. Not one of those that has pre-printed prompts and questions in it. I just want a nice, attractive journal with blank pages inside to keep a record of the daily happenings in my infant son’s life. Important that it be acid and lignin free.” Kozo Arts is one of my favorite San Francisco companies. They make stunning, archival quality journals, albums, and guestbooks. You choose the size. This album or journal has stylized bunnies hopping about on the cover, and each heavy-duty blank page is separated from the next by a sheet of glassine. Price quoted is for a 9” x 12” album.

  • Volcano

    Volcano

    Kids love blowing things up. Provide them with a safe outlet for their destructive impulses, and perhaps you can distract them long enough to hide the breakables.
