Bought this for my cousin for her wedding. You set the printer up at the reception and then send it pictures you take on your mobile phone or digital camera – you then bluetooth them to the printer and it prints them! We also bought a photo album and put it next to the printer – so you actually print, stick them in, and add a message. Really nice gift that was pretty unusual. Would also be good for special anniversaries and birthdays. You can pick these up at most electronic retailers.
If you have ever seen the film The Notebook you will love this idea – provide someone with the template to write their memoirs. We bought it for my granddad, now 70, for his birthday and he has really enjoyed writing. It is nice to read about his experiences as a refugee from the war. For the guidance see http://www.therememberingsite.org/, but you can also buy them nice stationery
