So what do you get the woman who has everything… even a Never-ending Notebook? Another Never-ending Notebook of course!
Recently it was my Mum’s birthday and I was faced with the dilemma of what to get her. Over the years we have done the usual things.. jewellery, clothes, even a trip away (which was awesome but sorry Mum, that’s not going to happen every year!) This year I really wanted to get her something she would use but still felt special.
My parents love to travel and spend time in their caravan, which is great for us as they come to visit every few months. While they’re away, Mum likes to relax with puzzles and usually has a crossword book or something similar in her handbag. This gave me an idea… maybe I could still make her something personal AND something that she would also find useful.
Introducing Mum’s puzzle-filled Never-ending Notebook! As you might already know, Never-ending Notebooks are designed to fit A5 inserts and I was very happy to discover that you can get A5 puzzle books!
I found these at the Nextra Newsagent in Stockland, Gladstone. They had heaps to choose from and they have new editions coming out all the time. So when you’ve filled up a book, you can replace it with a new one and still have your stylish cover! I did find one small crossword book from The Reject Shop but they didn’t have the same amount of variety as the newsagents.
Think of the possibilities! Not only can you use the notebook inserts that come with the Never-ending Notebooks, but any A5 size book or magazine! Colouring books, crossword books, even novels or self-help books. The options are endless!
After receiving her present, my mother gave her friend a Never-ending Notebook containing crosswords and puzzles too. She feels it will be a good way to keep her busy during her upcoming hospital stay. I’d love to hear from you in the comments if you have found any other types of books to use in your Never-ending Notebooks and where you have found them.
