The shopping precincts have put out their Christmas displays, and the adverts for Christmas Gift ideas abound - but every year I find myself struggling to find the perfect gift, the one that really conveys how much I care.
The challenge is even greater when the recipient ‘has everything’, so the pressure to come up with a unique gift can make the lead-up to Christmas unnecessarily stressful.
This year, I’ve come up with the perfect gift; I’m making photobooks for my family.
One of the great benefits of the mobile technology revolution is that we always seem to have a camera handy to capture those special moments, but the flip-side is that we tend to keep our best photos locked away on our phones, in the cloud, or on our hard drives.
This year, I’m putting our most precious family memories into a photobook; they're the perfect way to present our beautiful holiday and family snaps, and an amazing gift of love I can make for someone special in just a few hours.
If you’re feeling inspired too, never fear - it’s not too late to make a photobook for Christmas!
You may recall an earlier blog post where we whipped up a slideshow and photobook for our eldest son’s 18th birthday. The photobook was completed in just 3 hours and the finished article was delivered in within 4 business days!
Learn how to make a photobook in our two-hour ‘Make your own Photo Book’ class at 9:30m on Friday, 8 December.
All you need is a computer or tablet - and we can lend you one of ours if you only have a desktop at home.
We'll get you started and you can finish it off at home - and have the finished article delivered in time for Christmas.

A 'stocking stuffer' idea - iXpand by SanDisk
This little device is SO handy - a USB stick that works with a computer AND with an iPad or iPhone.
It is great to take on holidays to 'offload' photo from your mobile device, to store photos, movies and other files that you don't want to keep on your iPad or iPhone, and to transfer content from one device to another.
iXpand by SanDisk is available from the iTandCoffee Shop.
Normally priced at $75, it is ON SALE at iTandCoffee up until Christmas for $69.

A client of iTandCoffee recently asked why he was getting an error message saying that there was 'No internet available' and that his 'Mobile Data is Turned Off' whenever he was away from home or work.
He was not aware of having done anything to turn off his mobile data.
In fact, he had inadvertently tapped a new control in his Control Centre - one that allows Mobile Data to be easily turned on and off.
This new control (indicated by the red arrow in the first image) was added in iOS 11.
So, if you find you are suddenly without mobile data, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to view your Control Centre. (On an iPhone X, swipe down from top right corner.)
If the mobile data symbol does not have a green background, tap it to turn it back on.
