The Ultimate Photography Gift: A Personalized Photo Book

The reason I love personalized photo books is because they're a touching way to help someone remember special occasions and loved ones.
I love a good wall print, but there's only so much space to hang photos on the wall! With a personalized photo book, you can create a display of dozens of images in a neat, tidy package.
Plus, if you partner with the right printing company, you can get a personalized photo book that looks great, but doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
The soft cover books are cost-effective, yet beautiful. The images are printed on premium silk stock that's both durable and good-looking. The cover is soft (obviously!) and has a gloss surface for a touch of elegance.
You can order a soft cover book in various sizes that range from 8.5x8.5 up to 12x12, so you have plenty of options for sizing the soft cover photo book just right.

The layflat photo books offer a premium viewing experience. You get superior binding and paper options with images printed in their highest-resolution form.
The images are printed on thick lustre-finish paper, and a glossy hardcover wraps it all up in a tidy and gorgeous package. Obviously, the layflat binding means you can enjoy the printed images without the pages popping up and interrupting the viewing experience.
The traditional hardcover photo books from Photo Book Press feature premium silk stock paper and the same glossy hardcover discussed above.
This is a great option for amateur and professional photographers alike that want a higher-end way to display photos, but that's also budget-friendly.
Whether you opt for a soft cover or one of the hardcover options, you'll get a personalized photo book that beautifully displays your images and enables people to enjoy your photos in a convenient, easy-to-use package.
Other Top Photography Gift Ideas
Let's say you don't want or need a personalized photo book. What other options do you have?
Well, there are a lot of options out there, as I mentioned in the introduction to this article. There are a few that I would put higher up on my list of potential photography gift ideas, though.
Custom Photo Calendar

There for a while, it seemed like printed calendars were on their way out. After all, our smartphones have calendars on them, and since our phones are always with us, what's the point of a printed calendar?
But, just like film photography has made a comeback in recent years, so too have traditional calendars. Perhaps it's a bit of nostalgia for an analog experience. Or maybe people realized how nice it is to have a gorgeous calendar to look at on their kitchen wall. Either way, a custom photo calendar is a prime gift idea.
At Photo Book Press, you can create a custom photo calendar in one of three sizes - 11x8.5, 12x12, or 14x11. Your calendar can start in any month you wish, too.
These calendars are printed on custom calendar paper that's durable and easy to write on. The paper also helps the calendar images to look their best and pop off the page for an impressive viewing experience.
Aside from the aesthetics and durability of these calendars, you can also count on their functionality. Keep track of important dates like birthdays and write reminders for upcoming events on a calendar that can be seen and appreciated every single day of the year.
Custom Printed Wall Art
If the special someone you're shopping for loves wall art, it's hard to go wrong with custom printed wall art! Have one of your best images (or one of their favorite images) turned into a custom piece that transforms a room.
I'm a big fan of acrylic prints as custom artwork because of the sleek, modern look they provide. Photo Book Press uses the highest-quality materials, so the print you order has incredible clarity, depth, and vibrancy, in addition to its sleekness and modernity.
And with a selection of sizes from 6x6 up to 24x20, you can get custom printed wall art that is sized just right!
Acrylic prints art great for all kinds of images, too. Print a favorite portrait, landscape, macro photo - you name it!
Custom Printed Cards
A final option for photography gift-giving is to have custom printed cards made.
While giving someone cards as a gift might seem a little illogical at first, they can be a very useful gift! Have custom birth announcement or holiday cards made. Give the gift of wedding cards or graduation announcements, too.
High-quality, custom cards can have such an incredible visual impact when a person opens an envelope. It's something you don't want to skimp on for special occasions! With custom cards from Photo Book Press, you can give the gift of well-made, pretty cards, so your friend or family member's special day is that much more special.
