surprise gift as a reminder of home

We loved this book - gave family and friends a chance to say exactly what they wanted to my son, who has now left for uni (and has really appreciated this surprise gift as a reminder of home)


Nicest gift

I gave this to my daughter and she said it was "the nicest gift she has ever received and it was so thoughtful"
