Excellent. My niece gave one to her grandmother who has it on her coffee table. I loved it so much each of my kids are getting one for their birthday this year. Enjoy your wine!!!
College Send-Off / Turning 18
I had purchased similar fill in the love books from Knock Knock and knew this one would be perfect for my son to open on his 18th bday 2 days into his freshman year of college. We weren't there to be with him, but he facetimed me while opening his present (a bunch of his favorite snacks) and reading the first few pages. We both got very emotional as he was about 5 pages in, and I think the messages on each page really struck him! Warning: Start working on this a week or two before you give it to your child! I wrote out all the prompts line-by-line on notebook paper with underlines for the blanks, and worked on filling in this rough 'draft' over the course of a couple of weeks due to LOTS of crying on my part and also wanting to get just the right situation or phrase in the space. It was emotionally a lot easier to just systematically fill in the actual book page by page and my handwriting was neater, etc.
I generally appreciate the humor and thought of many of these products but was really disappointed to see that there wasn't a "What I love about being your DAD!" option. I expected to look up in the about us section that this was some backwards company stuck in the 50's and was surprised to see a founder from Berkeley of all places. As a family with two children trying to get by in the ninth month of being stuck at home with us in a pandemic this seemed like a great way to remind them we are there for them... well, at least their mom can. Perhaps there isn't a viable market for fathers who love their children (sad thought) but it looks bad not to even offer the option.
Perfect Stocking Stuffer
I had read reviews of other Knock Knock products, and knew to expect a small book. I ordered these books for each of my children with the intent of putting them in their stockings and I was not disappointed. They are perfect! If you have a child whose love language is words of affirmation, this book is a very sweet gift that makes them feel loved and special, and something they can look at for years to come. Having read the reviews of others, I created a list of all 50 questions ahead of time, and filled them in before writing in the book. This allowed me to personalize and individualize each page. My kids are going to love them and I'm so excited to share them with them!
