    You can even do a leather bound album if you want fancier than a photo book.

    @Honey that's the exact sort of thing we've been doing, but we don't need any new furniture or I would be all over that.

    I'm borderline considering just calling our new fridge we got 2 months ago an anniversary gift. It has glass shelves.

    Totes what we did for the Wood anniversary. "We bought a house this year. That counts."

    Z got a leather-bound book done for our guest book by a local dude and it's gorgeous. Something like that for a photo album would be lovely!

    What kind of 12 are they? When I was 12 I only wanted books and art supplies but I had friends who only wanted makeup and clothes.

    That was kind of the problem I was having, my one niece has expressed to me she has an interest in makeup, but both my mom and my sister are adamantly against them wearing makeup right now.

    I ended up going with instant cameras. I figured that would be fun, especially when they get to hang out with friends again

    I'm working on C's father's day gift. Debating getting him matching dino shirts with A. He would get the shirt on the left:

    She would get one of these:

    Is this cute or no? Teeth or no teeth for A? Or should I just go with a Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V combo for them? Or different dino shirts?

    What are your guys thoughts on these personalized storybooks? Was thinking of ordering one as a gift for R for Father's day but not totally sold

    They look cute but most of them are paper rather than board books and my kid will destroy them.

    @hallokween ’s beau got her one. I’m curious too, I’ve made and not followed through with purchasing several.

    S has one of her name. Don't get the name ones if your kid has 9 letters in their name :bored:

    I made C a custom board book. I’ll see if I can find the link!


    (Okay it was easier than I realized lol)

    You can make it anything you want. So I did “The ABCs of C” and so like page 1 says “A is for aunties. You have 5”. Then the adjoining page is a collage photo of the 5. (It only lets you upload one image per page but just use picstitch or similar). Now there are not enough pages for every letter so like one page says “O is for outside and P is for puppies” and then the pic is him with the dogs outside etx.

    He loves it and reads it in bed (toddlers love pictures of themselves lol). You could do like “The ABCs of dad” and make it all pics of them together or like “Dad of the year” and do a pic/theme from each month (January/pic of them in Jan).

    eta- I obv cannot post pics here but lemme know if you wanna see what I mean and I’ll send you pics!
