‘Galentine's Day’: Gift ideas for good friends for Valentine's Day

Photo Book: revive old memories

Photos for life: shared school field trips, birthdays, parties, trips and a lot more all make up the foundation for your friendship photo book. You can simply digitalise your old analogue photos by either scanning or photographing them. This will help you to chronologically document the history of your friendship and you’ll be sure to bring yet another smile to your friend’s face. In our article ‘scan old photos’, we list some tips and tricks on how to digitalise old photos.

Tip

To get a wider selection of images for your Photo Book, ask some friends and family for old photos from times spent together or from trips, holidays, and celebrations you've taken together.

Design ideas for your friendship Photo Book

There are no limits to your creativity when designing your Photo Book. Alternate between photos and text and express yourself with poems, quotes, and other personalized messages to convey how important her friendship is to you. You can find suitable poems and quotes in relevant Pinterest or poetry collections. In the process of affirming your friendship to your best friend, you’ll also be creating a modern poetry collection of your own.

You can personalise and make your photo book more touching by adding anecdotes and shared stories to the pictures. Write a few passages about the stories behind the photos and create a kind of chronology of your friendship. To this end you can use special milestones in your friendship as well as small funny situations that come about in every relationship. To add a bit of variety to your photo book, you can also add old tickets to special concerts or other events you’ve attended and experienced together with your best friend.

Plans for the Future:Lighten up the mood of your photo book and make plans to do things together in the future. To express that you are looking forward to many more years of friendship to come, suggest perhaps traveling somewhere or other activities and adventures the two of you can experience together.

Make Use of Shared Interests to create your Photo Book: Perhaps the two of you like to cook together or like to go to the movies? Maybe you like to do sports or share another hobby together? Make use of these shared interests in your photo book with snapshots from times past and symbolic illustrations. You could, for instance, use a shared favourite recipe and place a photo of the two of you cooking it in your friendship photo book. Another idea is to take several images from your favourite movie with some of your favourite quotes. Let your creativity run wild!
