We all love to give photos as gifts here at Cool Mom Picks, and they’re especially wonderful when you have really nice photo albums to put them in. I feel like the only way I see pictures anymore is through Instagram or custom photo books, which I love, but there’s something special about holding real, printed photos in an actual album. My favorite right now: the handcrafted photo albums from CMP fave, Rag & Bone Bindery which is out with some terrific new designs.
If there’s anyone in the world who’s going to want to get pictures of your kids for Mother’s Day, it’s a grandmother. The new, modern Grandma’s Brag Book albums are perfect. They hold forty 4 x 6 pictures in PVC-free plastic sleeves, and the paper lining is acid-free so the photos will last a really long time.
We also love this new baby photo album as a great Mother’s Day gift idea for new moms. It has matted slots for twelve 4 x 6 photos, one for each month of baby’s first year. Yes, it’s a little more work than having a custom photo book designed online, printed, and sent to you–but the result? Exquisite.
