Can you believe it’s December already? Is your calendar filling up, too? I love going to Christmas parties. I always bring something, whether it’s a bottle of wine or an appetizer, but for thank yous, I’m not sending a card this year. I’ve got a better idea!
Can you imagine taking your camera to your child’s holiday party, taking pics of the kids having fun, the food, the decorations, and then making an ebook made with Blurb as a thank you to your child’s teacher? How cool is that? No I Love My Teacher mugs for you! This is something truly memorable and it’s so inexpensive! You’ll have a blast getting to know all the kids, too! Write down names so you can jot notes in the book about who’s who.
This would also be a terrific idea for an adult Christmas party! Wouldn’t the hostess be thrilled that you captured memories? You know she’s going to be running around filling platters and greeting guests. The extra benefit is that you’ll make a bunch of new friends!
Blurb’s ebooks run right on the iPad or in the iBooks app that’s part of Mac OS X Mavericks. For the Apple-free folks on your receiving list, you can create an Instant PDF that’s readable on pretty much every device.
Blurb’s fixed-format ebooks can also include text, images, links, audio, and even video. So you could even include a little office Christmas caroling as an added bonus! (Or not; that depends on your singing voice.) Can you imagine the kids singing to their teacher? Priceless!
Ebooks are extremely inexpensive. For just $9.99 you can create an ebook of any size and then give away as many copies as you like simply by sending the download link to your friends, even your clients and customers! The Instant PDF is just $4.99 to create.
And for those really special people, you can still make a gift they can physically open—a printed book.
