Gift Ideas Under $20: A Lifetime of Secrets: A PostSecret Book

PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. The secrets are creative and artistic, as well as relatable, humorous, shocking and sad.

I have read all of the PostSecret books and with the recent release of A Lifetime of Secrets, I had to check it out at my local library. While the first PostSecret book Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives is probably my favorite, because the book is large and the secrets are varied, A Lifetime of Secrets does the collection justice.

As the title suggests, the new secrets in this book cover all ages with admissions from the very young to the elderly, roughly in chronological order. There is certainly a flow to this book that the others did not have.

At about $17 a piece on Amazon, either title would make great holiday gifts as these are perfect coffee table books and are sure to make for interesting conversations and browsing. I just like the cover of the new one better.
