How to turn a photo book into a (really great) Mother’s Day gift

Think outside of the box this Mother’s Day and add personal touches to your photo book. Choose her favourite colour on the front and add old photos she’s probably forgotten about, she’ll treasure it forever. Forget flowers and a bottle of Prosecco (well don’t actually forget it), a personalised photo book is the perfect gift for mum this Mother’s Day.

A star baker = recipe books galore

If your mum’s new to baking (basically bake off obsessed) or she’s been whipping up treats since she was a kid, creating a recipe book to add all her favourite bakes is a perfect Mother’s Day gift.

Our Square Spiral Softcover Photo Book is the perfect photo book to turn into a recipe book. It’s spiral-bound pages allows you to flip with ease (especially if you have cake batter all over your hands) and with space to add images and text, it’s a personalised recipe book just for mum.

A time capsule of stories

A lot of mums are the sentimental type, tearing up at the smallest gestures… So why not bring on the happy tears this Mother’s Day with a photo book of all your family’s stories? Guaranteed tear-jerker right there.

Snoop around the house to collect photos and keepsakes, from snaps of your mum when she was younger, to her favourite photos of the kids, and ticket stubs from her first theater show – the sort of treasures that’ll give her a blast from the past (in a meaningful and thoughtful way). You can add these extra momentos to your book once it arrives or take photos of them (it should help with her hoarding habit too…).

We suggest our A4 Lay Flat Silver Halide to display all your sentimental Mother’s Day photos. It’s a high-quality photo book that lays flat so the whole family can gather round the table and reminisce.

Who needs a trophy cabinet when you have a photo book?

Throughout their lives, mums have achieved so much – from giving birth, to seeing their ‘little ones’ leave for university without actually crying. Why not take all those achievements and turn them into a photo book for her to keep forever?

Our A4 Classic Photo Book will act as a trophy cabinet for all her achievements and memories inside. Or, if she prefers to show off her celebrations, stick it on the mantelpiece for the whole family to see.

No more fridge art, say hello to a crafty photo book

We love when our little ones bring home artwork from school, but sometimes the fridge door is just too full to display it.

If mum likes to keep every single creation, we’ve got just the thing. Why not turn their crafts into a photo book that you can keep forever? Embarrassing kids with it in the future – entirely optional. Our Little Moments Photo Book is the perfect choice when it comes to displaying your kids’ drawings and crafty art. Take photos of their wonderful drawings and put them straight into a photo book via our app – simple.
