The holidays are a time for nostalgia where families reflect on the year’s milestones. There is no better way to capture memories then through photographs and stories. With publishing platform Blurb, you can easily and affordably publish your own bookstore-quality books starting at just $4.95 and ebooks for a one time publish fee of $9.99.

Create a book filled with your own content, whether it’s family recipes, stories, photos or other meaningful material.  After all, what those special people in your life cherish the most is memories with you – document those memories with Blurb.

I have personally created multiple Blurb books in the past, including photo books and Instagram books and I love how simple the process is. I also love the quality of the books and how fast they are usually shipped.

Check out some Blurb holiday book ideas for inspiration below:

  • Planner  – Weave your favourite photos throughout a beautiful customized personal planner. There’s nothing like seeing special memories interspersed throughout your weekly appointments all year long.

    I wanted to make a photo book documenting my daughter’s first year. Perhaps winning this prize would give me the push I need to actually get it done (she turned one back in September).

    I like the quality of Blurb photo books and find their site easy to navigate.

    I love photo books. They are so much more creative then just a plain album. You can be as creative and unique as you want with each book you create.
