Looking for a personalized gift?

Are you looking for an original and personalized gift? Create a personalized book for someone. In the Travel Diaries diary app, you can create your own book for yourself or as a personalized gift for someone else. Photos in combination with stories take us back to beautiful moments from years ago that might otherwise be forgotten. Are you looking for a personal gift for your grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, brother, or sister? Or do you want to surprise your partner or a friend with an original gift? You are always in the right place with a personalized book. To get you started, we've listed a few original diary ideas for you:

• Collect the most beautiful photos and memories from one (or more) of your special holidays together in a travel diary, to relive from the couch.
• Make a diary full of stories of all the beautiful moments you have experienced with your mother, father, brother, sister, boyfriend, girlfriend, aunt, or uncle. Fill the diary with fun, moving, and funny anecdotes and stories and supplement it with your best photos together in beautiful collages.
• Capture your love story. Start with your first encounter and create a timeline up until now with text and photos.
• Give your partner a baby book about (for example) your little one's first year. Tip: this is also a very nice gift for grandpas and grandmas.

Travel diary, baby book, or own cookbook

Travel Diaries' diary app started as a travel diary creation tool but has since grown into a general diary tool that is perfect for creating any type of book. For example, do you really enjoy cooking and would you like to bundle all your recipes into your own recipe book or do you want to make your own cookbook? Then create your own cookbook by adding your recipes in a diary. Or, are you pregnant and do you want to capture the wonders of your pregnancy? Then start a pregnancy diary. Once your child is born, you can then process it in a baby book, to immortalize all the special first moments of your child. For example, you can make a book for each year of your child's life. How nice is it to be able to give that to your child later on? Travel Diaries' diary tool is for capturing any story you'd like to commemorate.
