How well do you know your Dad? Do you really know what he loves about you? And what do you know about his life before you came along? Yes, he really did have one!

Everyone has stories to share about their own amazing life and it is so important to find ways to capture and treasure them. Dear Dad contains 60 carefully designed questions to ask him about his life. Ask him to complete it carefully, adding photos and memorabilia along the way.

Find out what his own parents were really like, where he went on holiday when he was a child, how he met your Mum and what was that special piece of music that they had ‘just for them’. What about your own relationship with him, what did he think of you as a child, what really made him proud and what advice would he give you now?

When you get her completed journal returned to you, this will be one of the most emotional presents you have ever received.  

A great gift for Father’s Day, his birthday, Christmas or just because you care …

Also available in an alternative design or you can personalise this journal to tailor it just for you.

Ms Mac

An amazing gift

I bought this book for my dad and it has proved to be the best gift I ever gave him. I have learnt so much about his life and thoughts than I would ever have thought to ask him myself.

I now have a beautiful record hand written by him to cherish forever and pass on to my children, I have now got one for my mum too. It will be the most valuable book you ever buy!!


Fantastic purchase
