Tijdschrift verjaardag Loes birthday gift magazine grandmother everything

Tijdschrift verjaardag Loes birthday gift magazine grandmother everything Lisanne Bos (21) spent quite some time thinking about what to get her grandmother for her 75th birthday. She ended up getting the entire family involved to create a personalized magazine that turned out to be the perfect gift for her grandmother’s 75th birthday.

Sentimental gift idea for grandma

It all started in February of 2017 when Cora (51) and Irene (48) (Lisanne’s mother and aunt) came upon the idea to make a magazine for their mother’s 75th birthday. They started by reaching out to the entire family and setting up a date to meet up and discuss the birthday magazine.

Birthday gift for grandma from granddaughter

Lisanne: “It took all of 10 minutes to fill a whole page with ideas and topics for the magazine. We had a lot of fun thinking of anecdotes and repeatedly had to stop ourselves from laughing so much as we told each other stories. Once these ideas, topics and stories were in the magazine, thinking of things to fill the remaining pages was a bit harder. We ended up adding things like a coupon page, a horoscope and an article about art.”

Online magazine editor: A personalized birthday gift for grandma

The editor has plenty of pre-made templates to choose from, a fact Lisanne appreciated very much. “We used one style for the magazine, to keep it coherent.”

Lisanne’s tip: “Save the page you’re working on frequently. This prevents losing any changes made.”

Rave reviews for grandma’s birthday gift

Lisanne: “Everyone that’s seen the magazine thinks it absolutely beautiful. They say it looks professionally made, like a real magazine. And grandma? She read through the magazine with tears in her eyes. She must have read it 75 times by now.”

Phillipe was faced with a problem. His friend’s 50th birthday was coming up and he had no idea what to get him. During his search he discovered Jilster and decided to make a magazine. This is the story of how that magazine came to be!

Finding a special gift

Phillipe’s friend was turning 50 soon. He knew he had to think of something big to give him. Something special. He turned to the internet for help. Searching online he came across Jilster and decided to create an account. ‘What a great idea’, he thought, ‘a personalised magazine, that’s what I’ll give him!’

So Phillipe got started on a magazine for his friend. He gathered stories from friends and family, added texts and photos from years ago, as well as more recent ones. He finished the magazine with some time to spare, so he decided to order it early, and it’s a good thing he did.

When in doubt, contact customer service!

The day arrived when the magazine was delivered to his home. He opened the package and was pleased with his work and the quality of the magazine. Very pleased indeed! However, his gift for his friend wasn’t quite ready yet… one of the pages had a tiny red smear. He contacted customer service to find out what could be done.

A birthday magazine with an imperfection simply cannot do. So we wasted no time reprinting and shipping the magazine for his friend, free of charge. The magazine arrived on time, and this time, it was perfect.

A magazine just for Morty

At the party Phillipe gave his friend his very own birthday magazine. The ‘MORTY’ birthday magazine. Everyone loved the magazine, and Morty? He may have shed a tear or two at the sight of it. ‘A whole magazine featuring me… imagine that’, he thought, happily. He was touched by the wonderful gesture from his friend. He couldn’t imagine a better gift for this milestone, his 50th birthday.

Phillipe let us know he recommends making a magazine for any birthday and told us he would be back soon. He was pleased with the customer service as well as the high quality of his magazine.
