With so many gifts to buy each year and so little time, it can be difficult to keep track of them all. No matter how many great Christmas organization systems you devise, it’s just too hard to keep track of what you buy your family and friends. And if you’re lucky and start shopping early, you may forget by the time Christmas rolls around. We’ve got you covered with our Christmas gift organizer notebook! Very simple design and can be used year after year. Write down the gift and who it’s for! You’ll never forget a gift again. It’s also fun to reflect on the previous year’s gifts!

The Best Family Recipe Journals

“Family recipes are a time capsule; they’re more than just food” – Georgeanne Brennan. Your recipes are your heritage, and our personalized cookbook is the perfect way to keep them alive with your loved ones. Leave a legacy for future generations.

This is a beautiful recipe book that you give to your family members to write their own recipes for you. Imagine receiving a recipe book filled with favorite childhood recipes or grandma’s famous cookies only made during the holidays. In my own family, we gave this blank recipe book to everyone, and in a few short months of passing it around, it was returned to each owner filled with amazing recipes from everyone in the family.

  • This notebook is the perfect size of 6×9 and fits perfectly in a purse, backpack, or laptop bag.
  • Includes two pages per recipe. One for the recipe specifics and one for the story behind the recipe. Where did it come from? Who’s special recipe is this? Is there a story to be told about the recipe?
  • Great section for specific types of recipes (Vegan, low carb, etc.)

The recipe book is the next best thing to getting a set of handwritten recipes handed down from family. It’s perfect for those who love cooking, want to learn new recipes, or are simply looking to pass down their grandmother’s favorite bread recipe to their own children.
