Signed Book


In school, after completing a class, students used to bring a diary and made their peers give them an autograph. From writing poems to discussing how they will not ever stop being friends, signed books were a staple. Get a diary and make everyone you love write something meaningful. Whenever you tend to miss them, take the diary out and read it while drinking tea.
