A picture is worth a thousand words, so make a photo book to say something that will last a lifetime. A photo book is a simple but unique way to let someone know you care about them. Best of all, there are a variety of ways to go about it. If you’re crafty and love a good DIY, go the homemade route by creating your own pages, layout, and decorations. If you’d like a digital option that’s simpler to set up, you can create an online photo album and have it shipped to you as a hardcover book. Whichever route you choose, as long as you fill up the book with meaningful memories, it’s sure to wow the recipient.
