Photo books are an ideal way to put together something really meaningful to the recipient. The best part is that the finished product turns out beautiful no matter how great your crafting skills are. (Not having to spend a fortune on embellishment products or hours cropping photos and gluing on frames doesn’t hurt either.) There are a wide range of books out there; you can do all of the formating yourself or you can find books that just need your pictures and thoughts to fill in a template. I like Cherish Bound’s designer books to do just that. It is far less intimidating than a bank page and they have a ton of darling themes.

Cherish Bound is has very kindly provided a Top Ten book and a Mini Story Starter (over $60 retail value) to one of you to get your gift-giving started. I love this book! It is super clever and only takes about 30 minutes to put together. So start thinking, maybe The Top 10 Things About Being Your Child or Top Ten Reasons Mrs. Foulke is the Best Teacher Ever or just a Megan’s 2010 Top Ten with fun little facts about your child from this year; I would love to make a Top Ten Moments from 2010 with pictures from our favorite family events this year and then give it to several family members. Anything you choose is sure to be an instant keepsake.
