Handmade Holiday Gift Idea
There are a lot of gifts you could give this holiday season, but when it comes to something really meaningful, there’s nothing quite like the gift of a book you’ve made yourself. But before you start having visions of gluing and sewing together pages, check out the Blurb Gift Center.
Blurb lets you make seriously beautiful books using their free tools. Just add photos and text, choose your options (like paper and cover type), and then order. Of course, you do have to decide just what kind of book you want to make. But relax, because they have put together the cool Blurb Gift Center to give you lots of ideas.
For instance, if you’ve got a genealogical bent, there’s the Blurb Family History Book.
For those with newborns (or those that know someone with a newborn), a Blurb Baby Book might be just the thing.
And if you’re the kind of person who keeps getting asked for copies of your recipes, think about making a Blurb Food Book.
This holiday season, make your gift recipients feel really special by making them something special. There really is a book for everyone.
One of the neatest parts of Blurb is that they have tools you can download that allow you to use Lightroom or InDesign to design your books! How cool is that, really cool if you are into photography or you are a Graphic Designer like me! Don’t worry if you don’t have either of those programs, you can easily design your book entirely on Blurbs site, no download required.
So start now on making a personalized and unique gift for those Grandparents or even your kids. My kids love to get their printed photos albums every year at Christmas, it is one the season’s highlights and something they will treasure year after year. If you make something on Blurb I would love a comment or pic of what you created. Make this year a handmade holiday at your house!
