Easy Tips for Making a Merry and Memorable Holiday

The holidays are a special time of year. Cherish your Christmas time memories by creating holiday photo books with our easy-to-use desktop software, online book builder, or design service.

What can you include in your holiday photo albums? The possibilities are just about endless. Below are just a few ideas on holiday photo book themes and how you can enhance and personalize your photo books and make them spectacular!

Christmas Time is Happy Time!

Christmas Family Countdown – Use one page in your book for each day you spend preparing and getting ready for the holidays. Include the children's visit with Santa, the holiday brunch, the day at the mall, choosing and decorating the tree...and of course, the big day itself.

Christmas Recipes – Does your family have treasured holiday recipes that have been passed down through the generations? Ensure their safe keeping by creating holiday photo books filled with pictures of your family's favorite dishes and desserts and accompanied with step-by-step recipes. Print several copies for every member of the family to give as gifts. 

Beautiful Lights – Take pictures of the beautiful holiday lights and decorations around your neighborhood and use them at perfect festive backgrounds for your holiday photo book pages. 

Greeting Cards – Have you received holiday cards that are just too pretty to put away? Scan them, save them as high resolution and put them into your holiday photo albums. (And don't forget, you can create your own custom holiday greeting cards!) 

Holiday Song Lyrics – Jingle Bells, White Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town...just the songs themselves bring about special memories. Recapture those moments by including the lyrics of your favorite holiday songs into your photo book. It's a heartwarming touch that will get people singing and into the holiday spirit every time your holiday photo book is opened. 

Ornament Pictures – Ornaments are beautiful and often have sentimental value. Take close-up pictures of your ornaments and use them as page backgrounds. Have a special homemade ornament from a child? Take a photo of the ornament and let the child tell you the story about it. Include the story and photo in your book for a long-lasting reminder of their gift and the thought behind it. 

Thank You Books –Pocket and Compact photo books make ideal thank you gifts. Create books for family and friends to express your gratitude for their holiday gifts.
