It’s nearly February, which can only mean one thing.
It’s almost my birthday!
Okay, maybe it means one more thing. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.
Is it just me, or is Valentine’s Day one of the most stressful holidays?
If you don’t have a significant other, you’re incredibly self-conscious for the first two weeks of February.
If you do have a significant other, you’ve got incredible pressure to give him or her the perfect Valentine’s Day gift or date.
Well, I’m here to (hopefully) help with the second issue.
I’ve got a pretty easy (albeit time-consuming) Valentine’s Day gift for you.
Instagram Photo Album Valentine’s Day Gift
I saw this project a few months back on A Beautiful Mess and fell in love with the idea.
Sean doesn’t use Instagram, so I had to use our photos from the cruise and photos from my own Instagram. But if your significant other is an Instagrammer, use their photos instead!
I also recommend getting extra page protectors, because the albums only come with a few.
I ended up using 32 page protectors in my 2014 album and another 35 in my Mediterranean Cruise album.
Once you’ve ordered the albums and page protectors, it’s time to pick out the photos you want to include and get them printed.
I prefer to have them printed and cut before the albums arrive. That way, it’s a simple process as soon as they arrive, making them that much more exciting!
I also invested in a straight-edge paper cutter so I could trim them easily and quickly.
Then it’s just a matter of putting the album together once they arrive!
What photos would you print in an album for your significant other? What are you doing for a Valentine’s Day gift? Let me know in the comments!
