Take Your Pix Board Albums –

Ever wish your photo albums were sturdy enough to not fall apart?  This idea is not just for baby books. This photo album invention was created by a Mom who needed a sturdy photo album to facilitate learning for her daughter. Thus, the Take Your Pix® Board Book Album was born. Board Book Albums,LLC brings us an adorable chunky board book album that can be used by adults & small children too. The album has sturdy cardboard pages, where you can slide the photo in from the top. Notches have been added to make page turning easy on small fingers. 7″ x 7″, 10 pages and holds 20 photos. Comes in many colors and styles. Great for scrap booking, kids crafts, weddings and baby showers too. I love it as a new Mom gift or to make a memory book for any special occasion. Add stickers, lettering… So personal, so easy.

4 Easy Ways to Give Gifts That Make an Impact in 2011

1. Make it Personal So many gifts you order online can be engraved, embroidered and customized for a few extra bucks. It shows you put some thought and effort into finding a gift just for that person. Order early.

2. Consider Handmade Etsy.com is our go-to for handmade gift ideas. It’s brimming with meaningful and affordable finds that are sure to be as unique as the artists who make them. Festivals and fairs are another great place to find one-of-a-kind items.

3. Go for a Memorable Experience Gift Many companies now offer gift certificates where recipients can pick from hundreds of unique experiences like driving a race car or being a fighter pilot for the day. It’s a perfect way to give them something they’ve always dreamed of.

4. Don’t forget the WOW factor Try to add special touches to every gift you give this year. Combine a few similar and smaller items into a pretty gift set, add in some easy photo gifts from Walgreens, or wrap the gift using a favorite flower instead of a bow.

The Gift Insider recommends similar tips and gift ideas across a variety of media platforms. Roberts has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, CW and FOX networks across the country, she was recently a guest on The Carson Daly Radio Show and contributes to several gift guides and online columns.
