Wish You Were Here

Snapfish 12 x 12 Travel Book | The JetSet Family

Consideration has been provided by Snapfish.

When I opened the package that the UPS man left on my doorstep this afternoon I had no idea I was going to be left speechless and in tears. I knew exactly what the package contained, but not a highly emotional being, you can bet I wasn’t prepared for the wave of emotions I was about to endure. See, this summer I had created Hubs a special Snapfish photo book of our latest Hawaiian family vacation to Disney Aulani for our anniversary, and it is even more beautiful than I had ever expected.

After much hemming and hawing over finding the perfect gift, I chose to honor this particular vacation not only because of how breathtakingly gorgeous Hawaii is, but because we invited his best friend and his daughter to join us this trip. They don’t get to see each other nearly as much as they’d like since leaving Seattle 11 years ago so this trip was even more special than usual. And the girls always pick up where they left off since the time they were babies. 

I know living so far away from loved ones isn’t always a picnic, so I wanted for him to be able to relive those fond memories of traveling whenever he wants with a beautiful, personalized travel book from Snapfish. And considering I’m addicted to coffee-table books and hardcovers to this was going to be a win-win situation. I just didn’t realize it would be a grand slam with the extra-thick, durable pages and deluxe matte cover. This book is gorgeous.

The entire process was a breeze which I appreciated. I registered for a free Snapfish account and was instantly able to upload photos not only from my laptop, but directly from my social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The nice part is you have the flexibility when designing the book by either using one of the many templates or custom designing the entire project on your own.

I love crisp, clean, and minimalist and fell in love hard for the Studio layouts. They had my name written all over them, and matched my style perfectly. I also knew the layout was a perfect balance for everything that is wonderful about Hawaii: the landscapes, the colors and of course the smiles.

My apologies if I seem overly sentimental about this project because it has been a long time since I’ve felt this great about a gift. I ended up going with the 12 x 12 Premium Layflat Hardcover Book and he loved it – especially with this photo proving he is a bit of a softy.

The travel book truly encompassed everything my husband loves and cares deeply for in one special place to look at whenever he wants.

    Such a gorgeous book. I have been using apple’s photos to order my books mostly bc I am lazy but after seeing your post I think I may need to switch. If I won your contest I would make an album of our trip to Europe this past summer. We have SO many great memories and I would love to have them all in one place where I could look at them and reminisce over and over 😉

  • Beth Henry September 15, 2015

    I love photo books! I would make one of our upcoming famIly vacation in Newport, RI.

  • Amy September 15, 2015

    Photo books truly are treasures, aren’t they? I’d create a book of our Coastal California trip from San Diego up to the Redwood Forest this past Spring. We hit several CA missions – something I never knew we’d enjoy so much. It was fantastic, and a lasting memory for my girls.

  • Sara September 15, 2015

    I’d make a memory book of our family trip to Maine for my Momma!

  • Colleen Lanin September 15, 2015

    I am so far behind on making photo books! I would probably make a book where I last left off, after my 7-year-old’s first year! Or maybe I’d make an album of my family’s first year living in Arizona (last year).

  • Megan September 16, 2015

    I have several big vacations that are just screaming for a photo book! Bonus? I could use them as holiday gifts for my husband who would LOVE them.

  • Tori Gabriel October 8, 2015

    What a brilliant gift! I plan on making a photobook at the end of the year. We’re going to do it every year now as a tradition. I’ll have a look at Snapfish to see what their prices are like. X

    This is exactly why I love Snapfish. That’s such a great memory album.
