About Fondfolio
When our friend Tyler turned 30, we helped his partner collect words from all his friends and family and together we made a book. We expected it would be fun, but didn’t anticipate the delight it generated, not just for Tyler, but for everyone involved. This joyful experience was the inspiration for Fondfolio. We understand that it’s our good relationships that matter most in life and that there aren’t enough opportunities to tell our favourite people how much they mean to us. We also know that finding a good gift for them can be super daunting, especially if the occasion is significant — like a milestone birthday, retirement or anniversary. Tragically, it’s often not until someone is being eulogized that all those stories and fond memories surface. Our mission is to facilitate meaningful gift giving for special moments and relationships. We want to help you give something memorable, something that your loved one will want to keep for years. Maybe it will even become a keepsake that’s passed down through the family. The side benefit of more thoughtful, personalized gift giving is a reduction in unwanted gifts. We hope Fondfolio will have a positive impact on both our relationships and our planet — we think a gift should be a delight, not a burden.

Fondfolio provided a beautiful, highly customized gift for my partner. They have a nice web product that's being built out and are very responsive.

The collaboration process for creating the book could have been improved as it was handled all over email, however the end result made the minor inconvenience very worth it.

I was beyond blown away by my Fondfolio, which I got for my birthday. It moved me to tears. It is such a gorgeous book - a physical manifestation of love. I am STILL glowing from it and will treasure it for the rest of my life : ) I am so grateful to Fiona for her loving care in putting it together! It is truly the best gift I've ever received.

I loved everything about my experience with Fondfolio. Their customer service is awesome and answered all my questions. The process is simple and straightforward, but still allows plenty of customization. And the final product...it's just amazing. The pictures, as gorgeous as they are, don't do these books justice. They are high quality! The prompts they ask your family/friends to complete are great too. They may seem a little unorthodox, but they really get people to open up. It was very moving to see what everyone wrote, and the book wasn't even for me! Well worth the money and the effort.

When my wife received the Fondfolio I created for her 50th birthday, tears (of joy) were the response. What a beautiful work of art. Truly beyond expectations. I am telling everyone I know about the product as it is an amazing and unique gift.

We gifted my retiring colleague a Fondfolio to celebrate this special milestone. She absolutely LOVED it! She was blown away by how many folks took the time to contribute. Putting this book together just proved to us what we already knew -- she's so well-loved! As a normally avid reader, she read the book cover-to-cover pretty much right away. She's not the type to cry, but got "a smidge sentimental" reading everybody's well wishes (her words haha). We work mainly in numbers, so I'd say we're a less wordy contingent. She gave a special shout-out to those who filled in the other questions on the questionnaire, and how they made for a fun read between the (happy) tears :) Thank you Fondfolio for helping us pull together a memorable retirement celebration -- she will treasure this special book forever!

This was an amazing gift for my friend who just got engaged! It was the perfect gift to connect family and friends from around the world. Getting their input was easy to do and organize through Fondfolio. Fondfolio was a big help throughout the whole process, making sure that the customer loved the gift they received. I would recommend them for a fun, thoughtful, personalized gift for others!

My husband absolutely LOVES the book and is sitting outside here in Phoenix reading every page of it right now. It is a gorgeous, wonderful keepsake, and his family and friends often ask to see it (he even travels with it sometimes). It is clear that a tremendous amount of work is put into crafting it. We tell everyone we meet what a great gift it is -- it is literally something that will be treasured for a lifetime. This is absolutely worth doing.
