When my mom and I took a very special girls trip to Italy to celebrate my 30th birthday (thanks Mom!), I made her a fancy hardback photo book using the iPhoto software. She loves it and it has a place of honor in her living room. Other options:
- Make something gorgeous with your own hands and printer from Rag & Bone
- Shutterfly Photo Book (now on sale) would be oh-so-nice as a year-end book with one pic per page
- Kodak Gallery / Ofoto has a darling mini book that’s great for stuffing in your purse in addition to the bigger hardbound books
- See some other great examples at My Publisher.
