2. Blurb books
Blurb books allow you to create your very own professional photo book for you to look back on all your treasured memories.

Blurb software is very easy to use and you are able to pull images directly from your computer, iPhoto or Flickr account. There is no minimum order, so if you need just one book for you or one book for each grandparent you can order just that. Blurb books are a terrific project to do with Dad, for a special Mother's Day gift.
