2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Bellflower Books Review & Giveaway


I love creating photo books for family members. They are meaningful and sentimental gifts that become treasured keepsakes. They are fabulous gifts at any time of the year, not just the holidays! People love to give and receive personalized gifts. These are also great gifts when the person you need a present for already has everything. It is so difficult to shop for these people! For example, my grandmother is 92 years old. She has everything she needs and she doesn’t want anything that takes up much space.

With my grandmother in mind, I was excited to hear about Bellflower Books. Bellflower Books allows a group of people to create a personalized photo book online; however, it includes enables people to also include letters, poems, stories, etc. to make it even more meaningful. There are numerous beautiful design ideas for all sorts of occasions – Anniversaries, Birthdays, Sorority Gifts, Grandparents Gifts, etc. The completed book is 12x12 and contains 20 pages (10 double-sided sheets) with the option to purchase more if necessary.


I was given the opportunity to create a book of my own and I truly wanted to create a book for my grandmother. However, due to time constraints and the fact that even though I have a miniscule size family, it was not feasible for us to complete the book in an appropriate amount of time because we are each going in a million different directions at once. Therefore, I ended up requesting that a sample book be sent to me so I could see what the finished product looks like. I did play around on the website a bit to experience the creation process and I was so impressed with its ease of use. I even uploaded a few photos to get a sense of what my book might look like. At one point, as I was writing a message to my grandmother in a book I knew she would not receive, a big lump formed in my throat. I knew a gift like a Bellflower Book would be really special for her.

As I previously mentioned, I requested a sample book in order to see a finished product. I was awestruck at the quality of the hardcover photo book and its pages. Although the family inside the photo book was not my own, I could see the love amongst them in their photos and their personal messages. If there is a family member that has a birthday, anniversary, or special event approaching, I would highly consider creating a keepsake from Bellflower Books.
