Ideas for photobook presents from Shutterfly {Giveaway}



I made my first Shutterfly photobook in 2009, and I've been a big fan ever since. Their software makes it so easy to add photos, and you can customize layouts, text and icons to your heart's content.


The photobook above is one I made after our 2010 trip to the UK, Netherlands and France.  It's so nice to be able to leaf through the pages and relive the memories!  For my mother-in-law's birthday this year I gave her a photo book of our holiday together in Belgium, and she was overjoyed to the point of tears.  Here are some suggestions for photobook presents that anyone would love:

For far away grandparents:  Make a photo book of your child so your parents can see and share in their grandchild's growing up, even though they're far away.  Check out this great video of a grandparent enjoying a photobook given to her as a present from her grandson:



For the sports fan:  Make a "been there, done that" book with photos of all the big games he has attended, or a photo of each football/soccer/basketball/hockey/(whatever his favorite sports is) stadium.  Make sure you include the date, place and teams playing.

For the cook:  Make a recipe book of her (or your) favorite dishes, with the recipe on one page and a photo of the finished dish (or of her enjoying it!) on the opposite page.  This also works for alcoholic drinks!

For the new parent:  Make a toddler activity book featuring all the fun crafts and activities your children enjoyed at that age (if you don't have kids, there's always Pinterest!), with instructions and photos of the finished craft.

For the traveler:  Make a "my favorite places" book with scenic photos of all the landmarks she's been to, or all of her favorite places.  Include interesting facts about the places.

In order to make the photobook really special, you'll probably need to enlist the help of a spouse/parent/sibling/son/daughter or someone who has access to their photos.  With a little bit of preparation, you'll be well on your way to creating the perfect photobook present for the people you love!
