There are a lot of gifts you could give this holiday season, but when it comes to something really meaningful, there’s nothing quite like the gift of a book you’ve made yourself. But before you start having visions of gluing and sewing together pages, check out the options from Blurb.

Blurb lets you make seriously beautiful books using their free tools. Just add photos and text, choose your options (like paper and cover type), and then order. Of course, you do have to decide just what kind of book you want to make. But relax, because Blurb has put together a cool gift center page to give you lots of ideas.

For instance, if you’ve got a genealogical bent, there’s the Family History book.

For those with newborns (or those that know someone with a newborn), a Baby Book might be just the thing.

And if you’re the kind of person who keeps getting asked for copies of your recipes, think about making a food book.

This holiday season, make your gift recipients feel really special by making them something special. There really is a book for everyone.”

Blurb also have a mobile app for the iPhone and iPad.

Blurb mobile is an app for the iPhone and iPad that lets you create sharable online stories—and turn those stories into beautiful 7×7 inch books. What’s a story exactly? Well, in the Blurb mobile world, it’s a sequence of photos and other media you capture on your phone. It can tell a very literal story—with beginning, middle, and end—or it can be a collection of photos.

Just take photos and video with the app, or import them from your camera roll (including those saved Instagram photos on your phone). You can add captions to your photos too. You can even record your little monsters saying “trick or treat,” and attach the audio track to your photo.
