We got this for my MIL for Christmas and she loved it! It’s been really fun seeing her share stories and memories about her childhood. When it’s all done, I’ll end up getting extra books for both SIL’s.
We purchased Storyworth as a gift for my dad Bruce Allen, and he's off to a great start. I love the sneak peek of the chapters as they come out, and I'm excited to see the finished product at the end. I will note that it wasn't lost on him that this "gift" came with a lot of homework, but he's being a good sport about it!
Definitely check out Story Worth! They will email your recepient a question a week and at the end of the year they bind it all together in a book. We just started this is February for my dad's birthday. He loves it and the kids enjoy hearing his answers.
I love this idea. Going on my wish list so I don’t forget.

I've heard of this - what a fantastic idea!
My siblings and I bought StoryWorth as a gift to my mom. Each week, she is emailed a question about her life (think: What advice would you give your 20-year-old self?). She responds and can even upload old photos. Her answers are sent to us via email after she responds. At the end of the year, we get a printed out book (photos and all; or before print we have the opportunity to add additional photos if we'd like). In truth, this was the most selfish gift I've ever given because I feel it's me who has been gifted something. I'm SUPER close with my mom and never expected I would learn so much. Each week my eyes well up with tears as I hear a perspective that feels akin to reading her journal entries. If you're looking for a sentimental gift that will reward the writer (my mom has enjoyed the process too!) and receiver, I can't imagine a better one.
