Gifting

Keepster was first dreamt up as a solution to a gift giving dilemma. Our founder wanted to give someone a book of their text conversations - the ridiculous, the sweet, the sappy, the mundane, the maddening, the hilarious. She saw the meaning in those messages and knew the recipient would too! Turns out, most everyone loves revisiting old messages and the memories along with them. Also turns out, there wasn’t an easy way to create such a personalized book. Now there is. Easily create the greatest gift - filled with messages and moments that matter to you. Read our stories of giving the gift of Keepster.
