Easy Birthday Gifts for Kids!

We love giving these journals for birthdays because they capture a snapshot of the child at a particular point in time. As kids change year after year, so do their journals! Plus they’re a great way for kids to create their own keepsake. (See our post on Kids Journals to Capture the Year!) Each of our Kids Journals come with 18 pages printed on one side so there’s plenty of room for photos and drawings. Journals come in 8 different colors and themed sticker sheets add to the fun!
