A lovely gift to give someone could be a Memory Book - something to enable someone to create a memory book of their life, or a particular stage of it.
You need to choose whether you're going to create the momory book - or give them a book which enables them to create it. And if you're going to create it for them, you need to decide whether to do it in a physical book where you stick things in - which means they could add to it as the years go by - or whether you're going to let them pick and choose the memories they want.
If you want to create a memory book on line, you could visit online websites such as Photobox, Snapfish, The Book of Everyone - and go from there. They will give you guidance on the technical bits (which they make as easy as they can for you) and you decide what you want to put in.
Alternatively, you could give your loved one a book in which they create their own memory book. You could put a quote in at the start or leave it for them to create.
This could be a great gift for a graduation or a wedding, so they can capture a new chapter in their life - or a Christening present, leaving the parents to fill in the early years and then handing it over to their child when the time is right. The book comes with a slip case to protect it over the years. Buy My Life Story from Prezzybox
