Win a photo book with Travelettes and Kodak

Written by 4 December 2012 24 Comments

Are you usually last minute about Christmas gifts like I am? Do you also always make a new plan each year to be better about it in the future?

Good thing that this year was the grand exception as I was invited to test the Kodak photo book software (which you can freely download here) which allowed me to assemble some of my favorite travel photos of trips from the past couple of years into a lovely little book which is a great memory and inspiration for your loved ones. I decided to give mine a theme where I named it my “33 most memorable places” with 33 photos from different cities, countries and continents which I loved and would recommend anyone to visit. It makes a great gift for a person close to you who appreciates your way of viewing the world and to whom you can lend your eyes for the moments it lasts to flick through this book.

After assembling the shots I wanted to include, all I had to do was download the software, pick a format and a layout and then simply arrange all the shots in the desired order. To finish I added my title, burnt the file on a CD and brought it to a dm-market where my book was printed right away.

A Kodak photo book can have as little as 12 and as many as 40 pages. The colors are amazing, the quality of the paper is admirable and the book gets a stunning hardcover in the color of your choice. I opted for a cream tone which adds that classy touch.

Since it’s Christmas I am giving away 4 of my 33 favorite places photo books to you guys. To be among those 4 simply share in the comments which was the best OR worst Christmas gift you’ve ever received. The winners will be sent the book in the mail.



UPDATE: The winners are Jelena, Vivi, Ina and Careaux. Congratulations to you and thanks everyone else for taking part.

    One of the best presents ever has to be the photo book I got last year called Ruth Berlau – Fotografin an Brecht’s seite. I am struggling a bit with the German but I’m getting there!

    Hmm… worst present was a Nancy Drew CD-ROM video game. Best was a Nikon 12-24mm lens from my grandpa!

    Best was a trip to India and worst was a tissue (white elephant Xmas party) :)

    His intentions were good. But because my boyfriend mixed up the dates, we missed an exhibition in berlin i really wanted to see – badly. I was so dissapointed. So he bought me the exhibition catalogue in the internet. Which made it even worse, you know?!

    The worst Christmas gift i ever received was a Hello Kitty bathrobe from my mom – I was 22, and hadn’t shown any interest in HK for several years. Somehow I managed to give it back and get a new one :)

    The worst present ever was when i was something like 5 years old… during this year, i’ve been sick all the time, I spent half of the year home.
    So finally Christmas arrived and i got the coolest phone ever (i mean for a kid ) when you pushed the red button someone were talking to you on the phone…
    First try, i pushed the button and guess who were on the phone :
    “Hello i am the doctor, how are you?”

    As i was sick every week i’ve been to the doctor many times this year, so i couldn’t hear about this word anymore !

    Then i just dropped the phone away into the fire place and i cried for the rest of the evening !

    Every present except this photo book is unpleasant.

  • Cloe said:

    Hi! Great giveaway, love it! My worst christamas gift was nothing! It is not that pleasant ;)
    Lots of love

  • Michelle said:

    The BEST Christmas present I ever received is this year actually! My dad is taking my siblings and I on a SCUBA trip to the Cayman Islands! I’m so excited! :)

  • Fay Teo said:

    Best was a polaroid camera with almost 20 boxes of film, then me and my friend designed a paper frame, went down the street, taking pics and give it away to people. Worst, not really had one, im loving all the christmas gift i had ever received, feel so blessed when people think of you and ready something for you! Merry Christmas to Travelettes.

  • Stella said:

    Katja! Your book in English would make a wonderful Christmas gift. Best Christmas gift so far is an old typewriter from my dad when I was eleven. I still have it for keepsake. :)

    Best pressie ever- a plane ticket to berlin for the christmas holidays!



  • Jelena Babic said:

    I’ve never before received a Christmas present :/ Custom of giving and receiving presents for Christmas isn’t a part of the culture and tradition of the country I’m coming from. So it would be cool to receive something like this, just to feel the magic that other people are feeling every year.

  • Rita said:

    I don´t think there can be worst christmas gifts ( as you know the person somehow thought about what to buy you); however the best christmas gift was rather personal, when my sister spontaneously visited me in Bangkok, as I did an exchange over there: christmas and white beaches to share with her, what else could you ask for?

  • Megs said:

    Worst: a gold ring… not usual the “norm” for worst contender but unfortunately I’m allergic to gold :/ Best was my family jumping out of wrapped up gift boxes!!!

  • Ina said:

    As a kid I once got only clothes and chocolates and was so dissapointed that I went into my room crying. I thought this was the worst Christmas of my life but then my mom came into my room, asked me whether I got everything I expected and then surprised me with a massive stereo I had always wanted. Slightly mean trick but I’ll always remember it.

  • Wiebke said:

    My best Christmas present I got last year from my grandpa, who is 85. He wanted me to have something to always remember him, so he gave me a small silver Bottega Veneta bracelet. I wear it almost everyday, that was a really thoughtful gift!

  • Marissa said:

    my worst christmas present: a big soft toy monkey from an ex-boyfriend of mine. it had a little heart on the stomach. The monkey toy was meant to comfort me while he was gone for his sports competitions on weekends. After we broke up I gave it to charity :)

  • careaux said:

    want want want! please!!!

  • careaux said:

    oops. my worst was a wintercoat in orange size xxl that my dad sent me to the us when i was an exchange student there. i looked like a trashbin. sent it back right away.

  • Vivi said:

    I was about 4 years old, a typical girly girl and had 3 older brothers. Our parents made an innocent mistake of mixing the name tags on the presents, so Christmas night I sneak under the tree to open my -what I thought was for me – present only to find a monstrous truck. Horrible! For those 10 minutes that lasted my frustration this gift was the worst gift ever!!!!! :)

  • Krystal said:

    Best present was the chance to enjoy my 8th Christmas with my Father one last time.

  • Jenn said:

    Mine was definitely a fire extinguisher.
    And I was living in student dorms at the time.
    Mother, please!

    My worst Christmas gift was a plastic pendulum wall clock by Tschibo. I have no idea what my dad was thinking when he bought it for me.
