That day when we declare our love for each other by buying lots of red things is fast approaching. This year I wanted to give my other half something with a bit more meaning and what could have more meaning than a personalised gift?
Personalised Gifts For Valentine’s Day
The company I used is called Snapfish, they are an online photo sharing and photo printing service. You may remember that I used them before to create some lovely little stocking stuffers for friends and family. This time I was looking to create a gift for the other half for Valentine’s Day; something unique that took a bit of effort to create.
Snapfish have a variety of different gifts that you can personalise including photobooks, cushions, phone covers and teddy bears. This time I opted for a photobook. My other half is a keen sailors and over the years we have taken hundreds of photos while we’ve been out and about on the boat. The problem is that they just stay on my camera, never to be seen again. I wanted to pick some of our best photos and present them to him in a collection, something that he can look back on in the dead of Winter when the boat is out of the water and we spend most of our time dodging the harsh South West weather.
Here is what I created…
The site is really easy to use. You simply upload the images that you want and then it’s a case of drag and drop them into the correct place. You can change the layout on each page and you can also add in captions. You have the ability to choose the size and finish of your book. I oted for the 11×8 Custom Cover which costs £24.99. They have larger and smaller options available. There is a selection of different themes available. I personally choose the Aqua Blue theme to fit in with our boat images.
What I Like About the Personalised Photobooks
- The site is very easy to use
- You can save your project as you go along, so no worries about losing everything you have created
- You can customise the layout of every page
- You can add in your own captions and text
- The print quality is amazing, very sharp and clear
- It’s a great way of displaying photos that would otherwise be stuck on a disc or camera
- You can review your whole creation before purchasing to make any necessary changes
- It’s a gift with more meaning and thought put behind it
If you’d like to create a personalized photo gift for your loved one then there is still time; order by the 9th February to receive it in time.
