Personal – tick, thoughtful – tick, unique – tick, doesn’t break the bank – tick! A photo book ticks all the boxes as the perfect gift for her this Christmas and with our 5 great suggestions below, you just need to get creating. (Oh, and did we mention the creating part is fun?!)

1. The golden days: We’ve all got piles of old photos where we sport less wrinkles, greys and a great hair do! Pull together the pick of the bunch, get yourself to the scanner and load them in – this one is guaranteed entertainment on Christmas morning too!

2. An ode to her: A little flattery goes a long way… pull together your favourite photos of her and the two of you together into a beautiful ‘I Love You’ photo book. So personal, so touching and really shows you care. Just be sure to only include the pretty photos – we warn you, the others aren’t funny!! View our example

3. The artist: Collect new or long forgotten artwork from the children, scan it in and create a fun book filled with those charming finger paintings and crayon drawings. They’ll be remembered long after they come down from the fridge. View our example

4. A day in the life book: Surprise her with a special book filled with all those little things – a cup of tea in bed, your ironed shirts, freshly bathed children – whatever it is she does that makes your life that much more enjoyable. Don’t forget to add comments about just how special these things are and how they make you feel. A real tearjerker of a book and a great way to show just how much you appreciate her.

5.Those adorable little rascals: Your children, grandchildren, nieces & nephews all make the perfect content for a beautiful keepsake photo book. Get the family to send you in their favourite photos and combine them all into one beautiful edition to treasure.
