The holidays are here and that means the mad dash to get all those gifts before Christmas has also begun!
As much as I love gifting, there are some people in my life who are, well, a challenge to buy for. They either have everything (that I could afford to give!) already, or they’re just plain picky, but either way, trying to come up with a gift that is both thoughtful and non-generic can drive me crazy!
One of the best gift ideas that I have discovered for the difficult-to-buy-for person is a photo book. It may not be a new or altogether novel gift, but there is something about flipping through photo memories that is special. Especially when the photobook has a particular theme, such as “baby’s first year”, “our year in review”, “summer vacation 2017”, “throwback to yesteryear”, etc. So many photos get lost in the digital archives of our phones and computers – it’s time to put some into print! Plus, you can turn the photo book gift into a Christmas tradition and you’ll never have to think about what to give “so-and-so” again!
There are a host of photo book companies out there, but one that has made quite a reputation for quality books is Blurb. Since 2005 they have been making it easy to turn your ideas into professional-quality books, magazines, and ebooks. Now, just in time for the holidays, they have launched Layflat! Layflat allows you to turn any photo book into a Layflat showcase with a gorgeous collection of seamless spreads – you can go corner to corner and edge to edge across an entire two-page spread without losing any part of the image to the center fold! Create a truly panoramic experience for your memories. This is a gorgeous twist on the traditional photo book that has amazing results your family will love! You can explore the options and learn more about Layflat on this page here. Plus, save 40% through November 16 with code TRAVEL4T.
So it’s time to start looking through all those photos you’ve accumulated this year, pick your favs, and create a gift that will win you bonus marks for most thoughtful gift ever!
