Photo books make great gifts for loved ones
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’re constantly on the prowl for that elusive expression of love, gratitude or thoughtfulness to top them all. If your idea of the perfect gift involves love, laughter and memories, then creating a photo book is the answer. Whether you are a detailed planner or last minute shopper, photo books make it easy to find gifts for those you hold dear.

With options to customize a photo book to your desired preferences or use existing templates designed for a large selection of styles, occasions and color palettes, finding one for each person on your Valentine’s Day list is a breeze. Simply upload photos from your smartphone or digital camera – some retailers let you access photos from your Facebook and Instagram accounts – and arrange them on the pages of the photo book to tell a story or provide a photo journey through many of life’s amazing events, such as a birthday, anniversary, vacation, etc.   

Just a few ideas to help you get started include:

·         Expecting –For Your Spouse: You fell in love with your child the moment you found out you were expecting. Arrange all those photos showing mom’s growing belly, along with newborn photos for a gift sure to be treasured for years to come.

·         Babies First Year – For Grandparents, Godparents and Parents: From newborn to infant to toddler, your baby reaches many milestones in his first year – rolling over, sitting, crawling and more. Additionally, they experience a great number of firsts: first tooth, first haircut, first Christmas, and so much more. With cameras aimed at baby all year, you’ll have plenty of photos to make Baby’s First Year: Part 1 and Part 2.

·         First Grade, Second Grade, etc. – For Your Parents: Children learn and grow by leaps and bounds. From the first day of school, to holiday crafts and school plays, compile their year in pictures for all to enjoy.  

·         Annual Family Vacation – For Your Kids: Each year you set out on a journey to discover new things, relax and enjoy time together as a family. No matter where you go – camping, surfing, overseas – what better way to capture your annual vacation than with a photo book?

·         Wedding – For Your Spouse: From the engagement party and bridal shower, to the wedding and reception, capturing these once-in-a-lifetime celebrations in a beautifully crafted book is sure to be cherished for years to come.

·         Milestone Anniversary – For Your Spouse or Parents: Whether the tenth year of marriage or the fiftieth, chronicling the years of marital bliss are a great way to share memoires with a loved one.
·         Any special event – From birthdays and graduations, to promotions and holiday parties, capturing any type of celebration in a photo book is a great way to relive the moment.

Wherever there’s a camera or smartphone to seize the moment, whether to commemorate a particular event or just an extraordinary way to present memories, photo books are not only great gifts, but a great way to remember life’s greatest milestones and every day moments.
