Tips on planning a photo book as a gift

Don’t you just love giving a gift to someone knowing that when they open it they’re going to go WOW!? It’s fun. It’s exhilarating. It’s what gift giving is all about, or should be. Fortunately most gifts are given out of love. And when you’re giving a gift to someone you love you usually find that it’s more of a blessing to give than to receive.

If you’ve been thinking about giving someone a photo book as a present, that’s a great idea. They make excellent gifts, especially if done right. Maybe you already have a plan in mind, but just in case you don’t, you may want to consider the following:

1. Pull together approximately 100 photos that you have reason to believe would be of real interest to the gift recipient. Maybe they’re in many of them, or their children are. Maybe they’re of a vacation they really enjoyed. 2. If you don’t have the photos yet, plan an event that would provide a great opportunity to take a lot of pictures, such as a day at the zoo, or a vacation. 3. Once you have about 100 photos to pick from, choose the best ones (40-50), and arrange them in an order that tells the story of that day or vacation. 4. Come up with a good title for your photo book, and decide what pictures you want to add captions to.

With the 40-50 best photos loaded into your computer, and the title and captions that you want to include all written out and at hand, you’re ready to put it together. It’s simple. It’s a lot of fun. And you’ll be blown away when you see the final product. Even better news, so will the person you give the photo book to.

That’s all there is to it. The technology does all the hard part for you (giving it the look and feel of a really classy and professionally done book), but your personal choices and combinations are what dictate the results, and that’s all you.

When you give your customized and personalized photo book to your loved one, you’ll be giving them a fabulous gift that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
