Mother’s Day is coming up, and it’s always hard to think of a personalized gift your mom will love. My sweet husband and kids are always wanting to find the perfect gift to get me for Mother’s Day, and this year, I found it for them: A Family Yearbook from 2016, filled with the faces I love and the memories I never want to forget. I’ve partnered with Shutterfly to share with you the best thing to come to photo books, it’s their new Make My Book Service.
Photo books are such a great way to preserve your memories, and Shutterfly’s one-of-a-kind, high-quality photo books make such great gifts, especially for Mother’s Day. Many of you probably know Shutterfly for photo books and holiday cards, but you might not know of their new Make My Book Service.
Shutterfly designers will design custom photo books for you. It’s seriously the best thing! Short on time, and don’t know where to start? No problem. The Make My Book Service solves all of that and it provides a very easy way for you to get professional looking photo books…plus, it’s free to get started. You pay a small design fee $9.99 (+ the cost of the book) ONLY IF you order the book. If you decide not to order the book, you don’t have to pay anything.
Making a photo book can be time consuming, sometimes you can spend over 10 hours in the process. The new Make My Book Service saves a ton of time, since Shutterfly designers do the heavy lifting for you. You just have to provide the photos and brief instructions to get started. You can also add your own finishing touches after receiving the designed book, before placing your order.
I went with a minimalist style for our book. I wanted the pages to be filled with the faces I love and our best memories from 2016. It’s really easy to make any small edits to the pages after using the Make My Book Service, before the book goes to print. I added in a page that was filled with a few of the best photos from the year as one of my finishing touches. If small embellishments or enlarged text is your thing, you can really get creative here! Sometimes the hardest part in making photo books is just getting started, and this is a great way to get the ball rolling.
I will always love sweet handmade cards from the kids, flowers, breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day, but this year I’m helping them out with a Mother’s Day gift we’re all guaranteed to love forever. We just got our book, and it’s been so fun flipping through it and reliving all the fun we had together last year.
What’s the most memorable gift you have given (or received) for Mother’s Day?
