This year photo gifts will be more meaningful than ever. With a little planning and a handful of photos you can cross off every name on your list!
Photo books are a well known go to gift. You can create a book with any theme in mind and make it even more personal by sharing the stories with the photos. For something different this year, try creating a family recipe book with everyone’s favourite recipes.
Calendars are another popular photo gift. They are useful items your recipient will see every day. Look for one where you can include your own special days and events in the calendar portion.
Pictures of all kinds make great gifts, whether you print on canvas, metal, wood, glass or acrylic. Consider printing some family photos and having them framed or create posters showcasing a favourite pet, activity, or event.
There are so many more ways to use your photos as gifts! Here is a selection to get you inspired:
Home Décor Items – pillows, blankets, towels, tea towels
Clothing – T-shirts, hoodies, socks
Office Items – clipboards, binders, notepads, phone chargers, mouse pads, flashdrives
Cases & Bags – phone cases, tablet cases, drawstring bags, backpacks, laptop cases, toiletry bags, overnight bags
