Photo Books for Father's Day

This Father's Day why not make your dad a photo book filled with special photographs?  I think it is a fabulous, personal gift idea and something that will be treasured for years to come, bringing back precious moments and family memories whenever it is looked at.

Albelli have given us the opportunity to make our own photo book for Father's Day.  Unfortunately, with the bout of illness that has struck everyone in our house down over the past three weeks, we haven't managed to create one yet.  As the deadline for ordering is June 9th 2013, I will be doing it this weekend so we get it back in time for Father's Day.

Taking a look through the Albelli website, there are some really inspirational ideas for making a brilliant, personalised 'Book for Dad'.

You can include photos of dad's favourite things: his car, the dog, his favourite food, his record collection and of course the kids!  With funky layouts, fun frames and photo masks, text boxes and cool clip art to play with, the book can be made exactly how you want it.

With a little effort, every page can be turned into something magical.  You can tell a story, capture the mood and create a really special photobook.  The Photo Book Creator has all the tools you need to design and edit a book to your own specifications.  The Inspiration Pages include step by step tutorials so you can achieve specific effects and themes such as using watercolour backgrounds and  brush stroke masks to display photo images of your kids' artwork within the photobook.

If you don't have the time you can always opt for a pre-designed photo book where you simply have to upload your images into a template of your choice.  A bit of editing and tweaking can be applied so you are completely happy with the end result.

Prices start at just £6.95 for a Pocket Photo Book.  A Large Landscape Photo Book starts at £24.95.

I'm really looking forward to getting creative and a little bit bold as I create the Photo Book for Ian's Father's Day present.  I'll report back when we receive the finished result!

Here is a book I made for Ian last year showing the excellent quality of the Albelli photo books.
