Collecting your favourite winter memories in a personalised winter photo book is easy. Here we take a look at our top ideas for an awesome winter-themed photo book – from personalised family recipe books to Christmas photo books.

Winter is a season filled with special moments. The joy of the festive holidays, cosy nights wrapped up warm with good food and company, and crisp, cool winter getaways. A personalised photo book is a perfect way to look back on those memorable experiences that have lit up the darker days. Creating a winter-themed photo book packed with your memorable moments has never been easier with our list of favourite wintery ideas.

As the cold days draw to an end, here we share our favourite ideas and tips for your winter photo book.

Winter photo book: time to get inspired

Though many of us still faced challenges when it came to spending time with our loved ones this winter, there were still plenty of moments to celebrate. So what do you want to celebrate in your winter photo book? The first step to creating your unique winter-themed photo book is to get inspired by some of your best wintery moments.

Think of a winter photography travel photo book to showcase your best winter snaps; Christmas photo books filled with all the family’s moments of being together – funny Zoom screenshots included!

A unique family cookbook is another of our favourite winter photo book ideas, and is easy with our huge range of pre-designed recipe book templates – while a customised travel photo book is the perfect way to relive your memorable winter moments.

Scroll through your camera roll or desktop and start selecting the winter photos you want to share in your customised photo book. Here are a few of our favourite ideas to get you started.

Festive celebrations

The festive period is always a time to spend with the people that count. Create a chic photo book of your memorable New Year’s Eve celebrations, or create a Christmas photo book of baby’s first Christmas for the whole family to share.

Friends and family

Spending time with friends and family is the best thing about the winter months – and a winter-themed photo book wouldn’t be complete without all the fun, silly, sentimental photos that include your loved ones. Your friends and family are the perfect theme for a winter photo book – and it’s the ideal gift for those we can’t see as much as we’d like.


Food is the key to everyone’s heart – especially during the cold days of winter! Whether you’re looking to publish your tried and tested recipes passed down through the generations or looking for an entertaining way to involve the kids in cooking, creating your own personalised cookbook is a fantastic way to collect all of your family’s favourite recipes.
