Gift Giving Made Easy For Those Hard To Shop For Parents & Grandparents

This post is sponsored by Legacybox but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.


Present shopping. As much as I love it, at times it's a chore, especially for family members who have EVERYTHING and don’t need anything. I'm the type of person that likes to buy meaningful presents too. I really take great great pride in this! And I already have Mother’s Day and Father’s Day on the brain! Like me, you may have started thinking about what to buy people. Jotting down the ideas, making the lists.

About a month ago I was introduced to a very exciting digitizing company that I'm sure you'll want to know about. This company called LEGACYBOX really caught my eye because they were perfectly aligned with my mission to become a more thoughtful gift giver-even more thoughtful than I already was and am. It may sound funny, but I really do believe in the magic of gift giving. There is something very special and meaningful about a gesture — big or small — that exists solely to share and express love and gratitude. And in my book, this is what 2019 is all about for me.

The stories, tastes, and even quirks of your loved ones, the smallest details of their personality and things they love to do, can lead to the most meaningful gift. For example, gifting an item with history or related to a personal story is a great opportunity to show how well you know someone and how much you listen or understand them. Listen to little details of their lives throughout the year and refer to those moments when gifting them for a specific holiday.

So let’s rewind so I can share a personal story, and then we will talk all about LEGACYBOX. Sound good?!

On January 1st, Lin’s mom Jan broke her hip and is STILL recovering unable to put full weight on the injury. It is such a lengthy process and she has moved into a nursing home that can help her get the care she needs on a daily basis. And the future of Jan ever returning home is uncertain. Currently everything is a day-to-day thing. With her birthday soon approaching and Mother’s Day in the near future too, I knew we wanted to gift her something special this year involving old family photos and other memorabilia. We all have individual memories that are close to our hearts we want to preserve. How cool are the pics below of Lin’s mom a young woman?! Lin’s first car?! And I cannot get over the pics they took of their television screen as an astronaut lands on the moon (see below) for the first time in history!!!!

And LEGACYBOX was exactly what I was looking for. It’s simply the best way to preserve your past. It’s the most important thing you can do for your family, in three easy steps.


Just pack your LEGACYBOX shipper with all your analog media. We include safety barcodes for every item, and a pre-paid shipping label. Hand your filled LEGACYBOX to the mail carrier, pat yourself on the back, and let them take it from here. They provide state-of-the-art tracking, barcoding, and real-time updates at every step which I really appreciated because I never had to worry about the family’s special memories getting lost in the mail. Legacy Box has combined the experience of the past, with the technology of today, to make it easy and safe. It’s like magic.


Their team of professionals will digitize every item, by hand, with personalized updates provided at each step. Your LEGACYBOX order will be digitized at our 3 acre, 50,000 square foot campus - a temple to love of everything analog.


Receive all your original recorded moments back, along with perfectly preserved copies on thumb drive, the cloud, or DVD. Then gather the family, and begin the trip down memory lane. Tissues not included.
