Photo Books

Photo Books make great gifts. They are easy to make and available in a wide variety of sizes from pocket size, to mini 8x8 books, 8x10 and 12x12 books. Covers can be customized in a range of styles and colors including hardcover, soft cover, linen, leather, case wrap and other options. Photo books are easy to create. Just upload your photos, select your photo book style, drop in your photos, and add backgrounds and text if desired. My favorite site for creating photo books is Shutterfly for its range of styles and easy creation. They also have great sales. If you are more experienced, Viovio is outstanding for their range of photo book sizes and styles and you can create your pages in your own design program and then upload them. Mixbook is tops for customization with its ultra-flexible photo book editor.

Photo Calendars

Photo calendars are the gift that keeps on giving for a full 12 months -- or even 18 months if you create an 18-month calendar. They are inexpensive and personalized with your own photos. Just upload your favorite pictures to an online photo service such as Shutterfly or Mixbook (my new favorite for calendars), then drag images onto your calendar pages. You can choose from a variety of backgrounds and add text to each page. Some services even let you add custom dates such as birthdays and anniversaries to calendar pages. For around $20 a photo calendar makes an excellent gift for anyone, from kids to grandparents. Learn more about photo calendars.
