Holiday Gift Guide: My Life Map Review & Giveaway


So the very first item in my Holiday Gift Guide is a practical one. My husband and I are getting to the age where we give each other practical gifts; gifts that we can use or need instead of gifts we just want. We like to get each other things to make us think and work to make ourselves better. Lately the main thing my husband and I have been discussing is our future. We're trying to set goals and figure out financially, emotionally and career-wise what we need to do.

I have the perfect solution. It's a book, actually a journal, called My Life Map: A Journal to Help you Shape Your Future. Here's a little bit about the book:


The authors, Kate and David Marshall, offer readers the tools needed to create the life they seek and have developed an introspective guided journal to help readers map their road of life by reflecting on the past, evaluating the present, and dreaming of the future.
The book is full of questions and "maps" or forms that you and your partner or you, alone can complete. The book guides the reader completely through the book, explaining each section from your past, to your present and ending with your future.

My Take: I'm loving this book. I have personally reviewed almost every page of the book but I left it blank on purpose. I realized that it was something that I wanted to do with my husband. The book is so detailed and I'm realizing that my future isn't just me, it's my husband too. I don't want to sound like I'm a therapist but this is great for relationships! Sometimes it's hard to talk about what's going on in your marriage or relationship and books like this can help to "put you both on the same page" so to speak. I think it would be a great gift for a significant other or even a recent college student.
