A great personal anniversary gift idea for men is to create your very own photo book, if you haven't seen one before they are a proper book that has all of your photos and words printed together. They could be described as a coffee table book, as they can look that good.
All you will need to create your own photo book is lots of photos, there are a lot of different resources and photo book companies online that will be able to print the book for you. We have reviewed the ones that we like below.
When you have the theme for his book collate all of your photos together, think about how you want them laid out and the photo for the cover. Your photos will need to be in a digital format - perfect if you have a digital camera, if not you will need to scan the photos. Scanners can be picked up quite cheaply now, and it would be worth having your own if you have lots of old photos that you want to store on your computer. Plus if you want to correct or digitally enhane any photos they will need to be scanned.
