Who do you recommend I use for an online photo book service?

Question:

Who do you recommend I use for an online photo book service?


Hi, Lee, I hope your members can help me out. I'm a grandparent of 10 and I will be celebrating my 40th wedding anniversary soon and I want to make something special for my husband. Rather than creating a physical scrapbook (which will give away the surprise), as silly as it may sound, I really want to get with the digital times and create a photo memory book online all by myself. As best as I can describe it, it's one of those snazzy professional-looking picture books with photos, quotes, and all sort of colorful backgrounds which you supposedly can create online and then have the manufacturer put it all together and they mail it to you at a cost.

I'm having all my kids send me copies of digital photos of our family so I can get a collection together and put together a timeline of those photos to be included in the book. The problem I'm facing is finding a good online vendor that I can use. I just started looking for one and wow I'm already overwhelmed, where do I start? This is all very new to me and I'm hoping your members can help me out in giving me some recommendations as to what to use and why they use it over others. I'm not technically challenged, but my memory is, so ideally this Web site must be user-friendly and the easier it is, the better. Cost is not a factor. BTW this isn't just a gift for my husband, but a learning present to myself. Thank you kindly for your help.
