Listing + Gifting unite
We both are avid list-makers. Whether it’s on our phones (shopping lists, music to download, restaurants to try) or in our Moleskine calendars (what books we’ve read), we are keeping track of shit.
Why not record your whole life through categorized lists? You’re already doing it anyway. Lisa Nola’s suite of list-inspired journals from Chronicle Books are a great gift idea for groups or individuals. Just so happens that the way I ended up group gifting this was a lot of fun. Right before we moved out, I got all my senior-year roommates in college a copy of this journal and we sat around and went through it, each filling in details and telling stories as we went along. It’s a great memory in itself. The journal still has some areas that need filling in… get the wine flowing and the pen ready!
