Stories that matter

A birthday magazine is a collection of memories and emotions. At Jilster we try to share the most inspiring stories with you. They have their origin in different countries. You'll find the most inspiring maker stories about birthday magazines here.

My daughter has always been hard to surprise. As a child she always guessed what the presents were. Almost as if she could see through the wrapping paper. Michelle dropped a few hints that she was having trouble turning thirty. I thought, I have to do something about it. I asked her friends, family and colleagues to write a piece of text and to send me a photo. It is very fun to see how others see and know your daughter. The result was amazing and Michelle was very surprised. She had to put the magazine down, otherwise she would have finished it during her party. - Brigitte
