Laikonik Once A Year Books

Laikonik Once a year book

I have written about the beautiful Once A Year Books from Autralian company Laikonik before, but now that I’ve started Casper’s book, I thought I should share them again. They’re just so beautiful.

The concept is simple: once a year, a photo can be placed in the harmonica-style notebook, and a little story can be written on the page behind, highlighting key events that took place that specific year. There’s space for 18 photos, and to see all of the portraits after each other will give such a sweet overview of the growth and development of the child.


For Casper’s once-a-year book I got the special edition Once A Year Book which comes in a gorgeous wooden box and has beautiful letter-pressed covers featuring an owl or (in our case) a fox. I have Once A Year Books for all of my kids, and I think that once they’re 18 they will make such an amazing overview of their childhood! (They make very special newborn gifts too, especially this special edition with the wooden box and matching letter-pressed gift tag!)

Thank you so much for showing me these. I just ordered two! One for my one-year old, and one for our second who is expected to make an appearance this June. Cannot wait to get them in the mail. I haven’t bought any new baby things yet, and this pregnancy has been hard. So something little like this is just the pick me up i needed today. Thank you.

I have been trying to purchase one of these – but the Laikonik website appears to be down. Any information on when they will be available again?
