    I don't know how to do it, but my daughter put together a slide show of my son's (her brothers) wedding, and put a favourite song with it for their anniversary. It was very special, and it didn't take long. Sorry, but I have no idea of the tech stuff. Marie.

    If you don't need it to be amazing you can use PowerPoint to make a slideshow.

    There's heaps of websites that will put photos onto things like mugs, key rings, t shirts and post them to you.
    We did a mug with photos for DS baptism as a favor for the guests.
    Maybe a t shirt or key ring or water bottle or something will be more suitable for her if she's traveling.

    Truemedia does pics and vids plus a whole heap of other stuff. It's worth paying the monthly fee for the extras if it's for a gift. I did my nieces sweet 16th with this and my own song choices
