“You’ve got to give a little, take a little. And let your poor heart break a little.”
In the wise words of songwriter Billy Hill, that’s the glory of love.
True love is rarely simple or straightforward. Most importantly, it is intensely personal. It is for this reason that love stories are among the most compelling ones we read. And gifts that leverage this highly personal nature are often the ones most cherished by their recipients.
Inspired by Valentine’s Day, Weeva is calling all storytellers and contributors to fill a book with love stories of your own. You collect the memories, photos, stories and anecdotes and Weeva will turn them into a gorgeous customized book. Start your book by February 14, 2015 and we’ll take 15% off your entire order.
Whether you aim to celebrate a beloved family member’s anniversary, to surprise a best friend about to embark on the journey of marriage, or even to memorialize the sublime love you share with your own partner, these are wonderful ways to use Weeva.

Last summer, The New Yorker pulled together a love-themed fiction issue, highlighting some of the most notable love stories published in its history. To kick it off, Deborah Treisman highlighted the two main ingredients to a love story: “First, of course, a love story requires one character to be in love or fall in love with another character. Second, there must be an obstacle to the love – or else there’s love but no story.”
Below are some additional links for inspiration as you begin your own storytelling journey, including some advice from the Weeva experts.
