I would like to create five copies of a keepsake/memory book with text and photos of our daughter's first year. What are my best options - quality, price, design options, interface - for creating such a thing here in Canada, what are the pros and cons of various service providers?
My dad, before his death, came up with a series of Jack Handy-style quips that he wanted to be made into a book to give away to friends and family. He also envisioned some line-art comics to go with some of the pages. How/where do I design this? Where do I get a thing like this printed? [more inside]
So, I was born at a summer camp (well, in a nearby hospital, but that was where we lived when I was born). Since then, there have been 7 other kids born there, and as the oldest I'd like to give them all something as a sort of "welcome to the club" gift. But what?? Requirements inside... [more inside]

I video our kids on their birthday while I ask them random questions. I am looking for more questions to ask them and record (on paper or video). Questions like "will you get married?", "What do you want to be when you grow up?", "what was the best day of your life so far?". [more inside]

A friend of mine just got his first paycheck (£20) and he wants to get a small keepsake instead of just pissing it away. He's already got a Swiss Army knife, so any recommendations on a small tchotke he can get for about twenty quid? FWIW, he's in London, and has pretty much the widest range of interest ever, so go crazy.
