(NC)—Photo memories of family and friends make perfect gifts — especially when you take the time to make them into something truly unique.

A memory book is a simple gift that can become a treasured keepsake. Whether it's full of baby photos, snapshots from that special vacation, or your daughter's wedding pictures, it's the proverbial "gift that keeps on giving." Here are a few suggestions for the kinds of albums you could create.

• Photo Travelogue — A traveler's picture book is a wonderful way to wish someone bon voyage or to help them record their globetrotting memories. Scans of tickets, maps, menus and other mementos also make a great addition to the story.

• Special events — Weddings, new babies, graduations, a new house — any of these occasions is the perfect opportunity for giving a photo book as a gift. Consider using a blank journal with one photo placed on every page. The recipient can use the book to write down their own memories.

• Family history — Record family reunion highlights or arrange restored heirloom photos to create a "story of us" memory book. You can record a complete family tree with pictures of your ancestors. And don't just stop at photos — try scanning letters, birth announcements, marriage certificates and other heirlooms to create a collage that adds an extra layer of history.

For those who use a digital camera, a digital photo printer like the HP Photosmart 7550 will be key in printing top-quality prints. Working seamlessly with your digital camera, the HP Photosmart printer allows you to by-pass the PC with a direct download from your digital camera — printing your own pictures has never been so easy!
