We started a printing family calendars a few years ago when Liam was born. We have kept up this tradition every year since than. I love printing picture books and calendars as gifts, as I found that that's what makes the grandparents and immediate family members the happiest, more than any other gift.
There are many companies out there you can use, and I myself as many others used one of the most poplar ones, until one day they sent a "very special book" I made for my husband's birthday to my Mother-in-law's house by mistake! Even though they apologized needless to say I would never use them again!
But than I found Mixbook. Their selection of printed materials is endless, beautiful options, no matter what is your style you will find one you love. Mixbook's website is very user friendly, I was able to compose the books and calendars in no time and they shipped my products super quick. The quality is superb and there are many different finish options you can choose from Traditionally elegant, to simple, modern styles.
The Memory Books make a perfect Mother's Day present, I customized one for each Grandma.
The Calendar is a must for us now, even though we did ours kind of late this year, but better late than never!
I love the precomposed layouts, you don't even have to think hard just drop your preselected pictures in.
The books come with great quotes as well.
you can go back and forth between black and white and color pages.
And my boys absolutely love looking at all their memories from the previous year.
