If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day gift that’s guaranteed to be loved and appreciated, a Posterjack Photo Book is the perfect idea! Your photos are printed using HP Indigo inks, which are water-based and non-toxic, and our proprietary printing software, so your images are sharp, accurate, and vibrant. You can customize your photo book to have as few as 20 pages or as many as 120 pages, which are made with a sturdy 100-pound photo paper. Posterjack Hardcover Photo Books come in five different sizes, while the Softcover Photo Books come in six different sizes, and both are professionally-bound and made in our Toronto workshop.
Have you decided to create a photo book as a gift for your loved one this Valentine’s Day, but need some inspiration on what to print? Here are some Valentine’s Day photo book ideas to help get you started.
Themed Photo Books
There is no right or wrong way to make a photo book; you can fill it up with photos all from a single event, like a wedding, or you can include photos from various dates and locations. Don’t feel you need to stick to a theme if you don’t want to, this is, after all, your creation! If you want to venture away from a photo theme, you can still have all your images coordinate within the photo book simply by using a design theme. If you choose to have Posterjack make your photo book for you, there are several themed designs you can choose from in a variety of colours, so you can make a gift that will fit in with any room decor - perfect for the gift recipient who will want to proudly display the book for all to see.
Although there are some obvious types of photos you can include in a Valentine’s Day photo book, such as wedding photos, there are plenty of other types of images you can include that—although they may not be as romantic—still say “I love you” all the same. From wedding photos to pet photos, here’s a list of ideas.
Engagement and Wedding Photos - Even if you already have a few of your favourite wedding photos printed and framed, a photo book provides the opportunity to put a spotlight on even more of those special moments. They’re also a great way to share the photos that your friends and family captured of your special day.
Date Photos - Include photos you captured on your first date years ago, or selfies from your favourite restaurant you somehow managed to sneak off to without the kids last week.
Selfies - Who doesn’t have couple selfies on their phone or saved in the cloud? Even if you don’t feel they’re worthy of Instagram, print them in a photo book for just the two of you two share.
Pet Photos - Your loved one’s heart will melt when they flip through their photo book to see their favourite four-legged buddy staring back at them.
Photos of the Kids - There’s nothing you love more in this world than your children, so it only makes sense that these photos make it into a photo book that's all about love.
Photos of Kid’s Artwork - Take a photo of your kid’s artwork to include in a photo book. You can even have them create a special message or drawing to be included.
Family and Friends Photos - A Valentine’s Day photo book can include more than just photos of the couple in love. Including images of family and friends can be a good idea too!
Food Photos - The dinner from your first date, the cake from your wedding, or the roasted marshmallows from a camping trip are all worth considering for inclusion into a Valentine’s Day photo book; they can have a special significance that only you and your partner share.
Song Lyrics and Quotes - Another great idea for a Valentine’s Day photo book is to include your favourite song lyrics or quote alongside photos.
Locations - Include photos of fun places or romantic locations you’ve visited together.
Vacation Photos - Who doesn’t love looking back at memories created while on vacation?
Photos from Events - Add some photos to your book from music concerts, sporting events, camping trips, or even that charity dinner you both attended.
Boudoir Photos - Boudoir photography has become increasingly popular in recent years. Include these photos for a Valentine’s Day photo book that’s for their eyes only.
A Vision Book
If you’re looking for a totally unique Valentine’s Day photo book idea, consider making a vision book. Like a vision board, you can include images of what you’d like for you and your loved one in the future: photos of vacation destinations, your dream home, future wedding venue, relationship goals, photos of what happiness looks like to you, and so on. A vision book can be fun to look at years down the road too, to reflect on what you accomplished together and how things have changed.
