If you were looking to give a unique present to someone who loves books, presenting them with a custom book would be a good idea. There are so many different custom books that make awesome Christmas presents, but we have decided to stick with twenty of the best to avoid overloading you.

One of my favorite places to make custom books is Blurb. Their quality is excellent, they have pre-made layouts and the free software for creating the books is really straight forward to use. I’ve made four different books as gifts so far! You can even easily turn Instagram pictures into a book.

1. Cookbooks

Does your family have some recipes that have been handed down for generations? Make sure they can always remain in your family by presenting a relative with a custom cookbook. It will be of the same quality as a cookbook from the store, but be filled with your familyโ€™s recipes.

2. Travel book

Did your family go on a memorable vacation? Create a custom travel book, which features all of the things that you experienced. It will be a journey that your loved ones will never forget.

3. Childrenโ€™s Book

Children love reading books. You can make it even more exciting for them by creating a story where they are inserted. It will help them learn to recognize their name and they will be very surprised when they hear their name in the story.

4. Photobook

Bring your favorite family photos back to life. This gift can be passed down to future generations too. Make sure relatives know about their history even when you are no longer around.

Do you have a friend that is an inspiring artist, model, or photographer? Creating them a custom portfolio would be the perfect gift, because it may just be what they need to get serious about their talents. Once they see their work featured in a portfolio they may notice just how good it really is.

I have been extremely pleased with the memories that I’ve captured by creating my very own custom books using Blurb and can’t wait to create even more. They really are a tangible way to hold on to the life events and trips that I’ve taken. I’ve also been creating personalized-for-him photo and story books for my nephew, which has been a fun creative outlet for me and a great way for him to get to know me, despite living thousands of kilometers away.
