My father-in-law’s birthday gift
Posted By Sam F On March 30, 2010 @ 7:00 am In Photo Book Ideas | 9 Comments
We were trying to come up with a unique and special idea for my father-in-law’s birthday. He is not the kind of person who needs things – and even if you get him the typical gifts, it’s likely he won’t use them.
The idea – The “We Love You” Birthday Book
Henry has 3 siblings, 3 daughters, over 20 nieces & nephews – and many others who love him. What better gift than a photo book  with personal messages from family and friends to tell you how much they love you? And of course a party to present it!
I sent around a request to all family and friends by email – asking them for a photo of them (or their whole family) and a personal note to Henry. The note could include something they fondly remember about Henry, what they appreciate about him or what they love about him. Surprisingly I got 100% response rate from family members and filled a book with the most wonderful pictures and words….
With all of the photos and words, the format became clear…
Henry loved the photo book – and others enjoyed it so much, they requested copies of their own.
