12 Ideas for Your Photo Books

You won’t be surprised to hear that we love a photo book here at Potato Print HQ. There are so many reasons to create a gorgeous photo book, so we’ve put our favourite ideas together below:

My Year book

Did last year go by in a flash? My Year books are a great way to capture the year gone by either for your family, or each of your children. Make it a family tradition and create a family photo book each year of your favourite moments, to pull out of the bookshelf and look back on. You could pick the same design style or mix it up each year.

Child’s art

If your little one is a budding Picasso but you have no space left on the fridge, a great way to make space is to make a photo book of your child’s art.

Grandparents and me

A ‘Granny, Grandad and me’ photo book is a fantastic gift for the grandparents in your life. Fill it full of photos of days out and fabulous family moments, it’s sure to bring a sentimental tear to the eye.

Daddy and me / mummy and me

If you’re struggling for ideas of what to get your little one’s mum or dad for their birthday, mother’s day or father’s day, filling a gorgeous photo book full of photos of precious moments is sure to go down a treat. Ask the kids to pick the design or which photos to use for that extra special touch. There is even space to write a little message.

My family book

A photo book doesn’t just have to celebrate a particular time, it can also be a book for the future. A ‘My family’ photo book can be created for newborns or older children alike to teach them all about their family members with large photos and space to write a few sentences on each page.

Baby’s first year

Capture your newborns’ milestones throughout the year, and see how they have grown and developed in a precious new baby photo book.

Baby’s first Christmas

Baby’s first Christmas is such a magical time, with a range of festive designs a photo book can make those memories last a lifetime.

Family Christmas

Wouldn’t it be lovely, each time you open the Christmas decorations box, to pull out a family Christmas photo book from the years gone by and reminisce? We think that would make a wonderful family tradition.

Message books

Who says a photo book has to be full of photos? We think you can create whatever you like with these gorgeous hard-backed books, and so have a range of ‘message books’, perfect to fill with messages from all the family for a newborn, christening or birthday.

Family holiday

Water fights, bike rides, play parks – these activities all make for great photos to fill a photo book to remember your precious family holiday times together.


With a range of gorgeous design to complement a wonderful day creating a photo book for your baby’s christening or naming day is a delightful way to honour the day.

Little one’s birthday

Did you throw an amazing party for your little one or have a family day out? Whichever, I’m betting you took loads of photos, we’re sure to have a design to match your party theme!
