I love this Mother’s Day Gift Idea because it is unique, easy, and a great keepsake. Create a book using Blurb for Mom. I’ve created a book myself on Blurb and I can tell you – it’s was a great experience (more on that below). So here is a Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Blurb books (and a #Giveaway)…
I created a Blurb book for a baby shower a few years ago. I included “articles” like: what to pack in your diaper bag, Mom advice, and activities to do with babies. The layouts were easy to use. Uploading pictures were a breeze. Hit send to publish. And fast delivery. It was simply a seamless experience. And pretty great if you are a book lover like me.
Mother’s Day Blurb Book Creation Ideas…
- a photo book (think: family pictures, travel pics, grandchildren!)
- portfolio book (think: their artwork, kids artwork)
- recipe book (think: put all those family meals into words)
- Self-published book (think: take Mom’s dusty manuscript and self-publish it for her)
I pretty much love all of those blurb book ideas. The on-demand print aspect of Blurb helps keep costs down (and I loved the fact that after a few family members fell in love with my Blurb book they could easily go online and order copies for themselves at a great price).
And for those closet writers who have always wanted that book published…
