With our second anniversary upon us, I thought what better way to immortalise our love than to create a personalised photobook for my boyfriend! My phone is full of such wonderful photos of our time together and in this day and age we never print them or have hard copies anymore; it’s about time we make our love tangible…
Browsing online, I came across Colorland UK who create photo products and personalised gifts such as photo books and albums, calendars, canvases, magnets, prints and even mugs for every occasion. I chose their Travel Photo Book Exclusive A4 Portrait with a Grey Shinny Husk personalised hardcover which comes with 28 pages preset, all with a glossy laminate finish as standard – if you’d like to add more pictures you can.
Choosing a photo for the front of the album was easy as I knew exactly which one to use. We visited the Maldives last year and have the most romantic photo of us sharing a kiss on the beach which I knew would embody our relationship and capture the magic of our anniversary just perfectly!
This photo books come with preset templates which you simply have to click on each box to upload, crop and rotate your pictures into place. I find it more helpful having a template already set as it looks so stylish and everything flows much more nicely – rather than just packing in loads of photos into a blank album which can easily look messy and jumbled.
The website was super easy to use which totally took the stress out of putting a special gift together as I simply had to scroll through my camera roll and pick out my favourite pictures – I found so many that I’d forgotten about, it was a delightful reminder of just how many beautiful memories we’ve made together and makes me appreciate our love all the more to see it laid out on glossy pages.
Each page has a different layout and there are pretty captions and watercolours positioned throughout such as let’s travel the world together, see the world, you are my world and play the moments which makes it bright, colourful and effortlessly creative with a flawless high-end print quality – an extra professional touch that is worthy of our special anniversary!
I’ve used a collection of pictures from our travels to Paris, Marbella, the Maldives and various day trips around the UK with the family and every page makes me smile, I know my boyfriend is going to love it as much as I do and I’m looking forward to it being a coffee table conversational piece to show to friends and family when they come over, recounting our special memories and reminiscing on our two year anniversary for many years to come.
If you’re looking for an extra special gift for a loved one then I’d highly recommend having something personalised with a special photo or photos. You can use my discount code “TRACYBOOK” to purchase this same 28 page photo book for just £8.99 instead of £32.95 + shipping. Not only is it unique, as nobody else in the world will have it, it’s also beautifully personal and brings a touch of love to every home.
