Our personalised My Life Story diary will allow you, or a loved one, to record the most momentous events in their life. Sure, we’ve kept journals as kids, but this handbound keepsake is truly special. As the book is created wholly for the individual, the cover features their name embossed in gold, including a special message on the opening page from yours truly, all of which you can choose to present inside in a luxury gift box. The personalised memory book itself will then feature organised sections colour coded around important stages of their life. They can fill in childhood experiences, pages about their parents, siblings, grandparents and their family tree, all leading to even more noteworthy moments like starting a family, falling in love and much more. Each new section even includes whimsical quotes from icons in history, because, well, this is a life diary after all and what better inspiration to write your own life story than by the words of great icons?
How to Personalise Your Memories Book
Personalise the book with the recipient’s name of up to 22 characters over 1 line. The name will be embossed on the cover of the book. Include a message of up to 80 characters over 2 lines, which will appear on the opening title page.
Complete your gift by adding a luxury gift box to keep your gift protected as time passes.
When entering your personalisation, please note that accents, emojis and other symbols can’t be used as our system doesn’t support these. Make sure to double check your spelling!

Not impressed with customer service
I raised an issue with the company but they have not responded. Basically I asked for an invoice for the TWO books I ordered (at a cost of over £60). I wanted to check costs as on the website the nice gift box is advertised as being free but when I purchased my books I was charged £5 per gift box. Also postage advertised at just over £3 but I'm sure I was charged more than this (per book)! I look forward to perhaps getting a response/explanation now.

Thank you for your review.
We can see that an email was sent on Friday which we do apologise for the delay in responding, our responses usually take longer from the weekend due to high volumes. As requested, copies of your email confirmations have been forwarded in separate emails, if you have any queries please get back to us?
Our web sessions are usually recorded therefore we have viewed your session and can confirm that on both orders you were advised of the additional cost of £5.00 for the gift box and standard postage costs which is clearly advertised on the website. What you are referring to with regards to a free gift box and reduced postage is our trade website however you have ordered via our retail site, these are two completely different websites.
Sorry for any confusion caused, if you need any further assistance please contact us.
Kind regards In the Book.
