Great Gift: 5 Year Diary

Favors & Gifts

This is such a cool idea! The MoMA Design store has a 5 Year Diary which encourages a unique, reflective way of journaling and is the perfect gift for your diary-loving bridesmaid. The book has a page for each day of the year, and divides every page into five sections—the first year you write in the first section, the second year you write in the next section, and so one. That way, by the end of the five years, each page presents a side-by-side view of the same day in each year. The idea of having a condensed cross section of your life is pretty fascinating. I also like that there's only enough room for a few sentences each day, so if your bridesmaids are like me and the idea of keeping a detailed daily journal daunts them, this is an easy alternative to intensive diary keeping. —Christine Barcellona, Editorial Intern,
