Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be a challenge, but photo gifts work well for everyone on your list – especially for grandparents, close friends, and pet owners. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for this holiday season.
Picture magnets are best for home or office gifts. One of our favorites is Sticky 9 – which allows you to turn your Instagram photos into square magnets. These are a fun idea for any one of your friends or family members who use their Instagram account as a living photo album (note: you’ll need to get access to their account).
Personalized playing cards
If you have a friend or family member who knows his or her way around a deck of cards, personalized playing cards are a fun gift. These allow you to use one or more photos to create a deck that features their favorite images. Who knows, it might bring an extra bit of luck, too!
Calendars are a great option for grandparents and students away at college for their first year or two, especially if you mix family photos with a few of their friends and favorite places from home. Calendars can be created with a single portrait or with 12 images to have a different one each month. Some people also opt for a weekly calendar, which includes 52 images.
Create a fun photo collage with your favorite photos from the year, either displaying on a custom mat with a number (like an anniversary) or phrase (like family). You can make this into a fun DIY project or rely on the professionals to make it for you.
We also love canvas prints – a great way to create wall art from your favorite images without having to worry about framing. The texture of the canvas adds an interesting element to your photos.
Creating memory jars is a unique photo gift idea. Grab a large mason jar or clear glass jar that has a lid. Fill it with your favorite photos and mementos from a vacation, special event, or that remind you of a loved pet. When attaching the photos, make sure they are facing outwards and in the same direction (we recommend attaching them with clear photo-safe glue dots). Consider using the lid as a base – allowing you to add an extra photo to the bottom. While most picture photo gift ideas are displayed on the wall, this creates a fun centerpiece.
Photo albums are a classic gift. After all, there’s no better way to commemorate a special event or year than with a collection of photos. These are great to give at family functions, as it is something everyone – including the receiver – can enjoy.
