Personalized with a name and message
Presented in a FREE luxury gift box to protect your book as time goes by
Bound by hand in a premium hardcover quality cover
Over 99 pages to tell the story of your life
Ideal for birthdays and graduations
Like the name explains, the individual will record the most momentous events they’ve lived and are yet to live through, all with this personalized memory book. 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 is presented inside a free gift box.
How to Personalize Your Memory Book
The personalized memory book itself will then feature organised sections color 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?
Personalize 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. When entering your personalization, 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!

Constant calls about delivery
Constant calls about delivery. The people on the phone actually have no control over when an item gets sent out so it was just constantly false information. I actually didn’t need the item after it arrived late, but I couldn’t stand speaking to them on the phone again to go over the refund process which they probably would have not allowed as it was personalised.
Really bad experience

Ordered and paid for a book for my…
Ordered and paid for a book for my mother, promised delivery was july 16-21. Today is the 26th and your website has no info on my order, nothing, and obviously no delivery. Yet, my bank account clearly shows a $99.98 payment to inthebook on july 7, 2021. Update: Inthebook contacted me the next morning, updated me on the shipping and my mother’s book arrived the next day. She’s 84 and it’s been awhile since I’ve seen her tears of joy. All’s well that ends well. Thank you, and I’ve updated my review to reflect 5 stars.
