Bob Books
30th November 2020

It’s always hard to think of creative stocking filler ideas, but here at Bob Books we have you sorted. Give your family something a little bit different this year, from selfie-themed photo books to a calendar dedicated to the family pet. 

A Selfie Book 

If you’re looking for a present that will make them laugh on Christmas Day, why not surprise your family with a selfie book. 

The ultimate act of narcissism that will surely bring a smile to their face, a book of your best photos is a great way to give something different this Christmas. 

Our app allows you to build a photobook in 2 minutes, uploading your best selfie shots, with prices starting as little as £14.99. This is a great way to use those photos that are saved on your phone camera. 

Get some inspiration from Rosanna and her selfie book here.  

Pet-themed calendar 

Does your family have a pet which gets preferential treatment in the house? Our photo calendars can be customised, so each month is a new photo of your furry friend. You can even add your own unique dates - so your family will never forget the birthday of your dog or cat.

Your children’s art 

Surprise your children with their artwork preserved in print. A photo book filled with their own art is a delightful present to add to their Christmas stockings. If you are feeling super creative, you could even create their own personal children’s story featuring them as the main characters. Our photo books allow for both text, imagery and even video to really bring the story to life. 

For inspiration, check out this book on our Bookshop. 

A unique travel print 

Our posters start from as little as £2.99 so why not gift a photo from their travels for Christmas. Do they have a favourite destination? Or perhaps they had a memorable experience from past adventures. Create a beautiful piece of wall art so they can take their travels home. 

We have lots of wall art options from framed posters to beautiful gallery mounts. See them all here

Gift Vouchers 


For the person who has everything, slip a Bob Books voucher into their stocking. They can use it on our large selection of photo books, calendars, wall art or photo cards, with amounts ranging from £20-£150. Find out more here.
