Time to start planning your holiday gifts!

July 31, 2008

The holiday season seems a long way off right now, but if you are planning on photo or digital scrapbooking related gifts it is never too early to start working on those projects.  Before you know it the shipping deadlines will be upon us, but with careful planning you can avoid paying the extra shipping costs for rush orders.

Here are some great ideas on how to include photo books in your gift giving plans:

  • Favorite cookie recipes, along with pictures of the baking process and of finished items can be collected in a photo book and passed down for future generations.
  • If you’ve got kids in sports, pageants, dance recitals or holiday programs at school, make them their own book show casing their role in the event.
  • Surprise a loved one with a family history book. You might have to sneak pictures out of their house a few at a time to scan. A big project like this, needs to be started as soon as possible so you aren’t rushed to complete it at the last minute.
  • Create a personalized ABC or 123 book for a youngster in your life. Kids love seeing themselves and loved ones in print!

Finally, remember photo books don’t need to be more than 20 pages or even big to make a great gift! Viovio has a lot of great options, including some really cute mini books!
