in the gift closet

Every once in a while we come across something so simple and perfect that we instantly wonder why we hadn’t thought of it. This birthday present idea found on the lovely blog Tiny Happy is one such thing… 

The low-down per Tiny Happy

“When Keira turned six last month, her aunty and uncle gave her a small disposable camera and a blank album, with a card suggesting she could document her life at six...

It’s going to be such a fun thing to look at later on, this week that she turned six. She went to the beach, the supermarket, to visit her grandparents, and had a tea party with her friends. Looking through the photos gave me insight into what it’s like to be her, too: the photos of people seem to be taken from so far below them. I’d forgotten what it was like to be so small.

Just so genius and lovely, yes?


  1. Thank you for sharing this idea…i wish i had done it when i was 6! I’ll definitely do this for my kids…what a treasure for them to look back on.
