This Christmas, give everyone on your list personalized gifts using photos!
It’s the perfect way to show them you care.
Blogger Mandy Douglass shares five creative and unique photo gifts.
Photo gifts have a personalized touch that is unique to the receiver. Enjoy 5
creative ideas for anyone on Santa’s list to help you find or make your last
1. For the Cell phone user
Customize a case for your cell phone user. A very easy process and can be
completed in less than 5 minutes. Upload your favorite picture, adjust the
photo where you want it and enjoy the mailman bringing it to your door.
NOTE: Be sure to order your case today so that it will have a chance to get to
you by Christmas!

Shipping: Because this company is located in Miami, Florida, it will not get to
you in time for Christmas unless you choose 2 day shipping!
2. For the Jewelry wearer
Chunky, darling jewelry has been a trendy style for the past few years,
however, how about customizing yours for the receiver. I chose to make one
for my mother-in-law, and make a mosaic of all of her grandchildren. I chose
to make the pictures really small and by cropping each one in photoshop,
then making shrinking them down to fit inside this necklace. Such a darling
twist on these great necklaces. This specific necklace was purchased from
Stampin’ Up! These charms were my favorite!

3. For the Busy mom
I love to scrapbook, and I love to record memories, but often I don’t have
time to do it! This has been a system for 3 years that I have loved. It is simply
a journal / day planner that you use through your year, and take pictures to
create a small scrapbook about your year.

4. For the sentimental decorator
This idea I found on Pinterest by a talented blogger, Talia Christine.
To make this project fit within the gift givers theme, I found an old window
frame, and some antique slides at Star Mill in American Fork. Bought some
tacks, and chicken wire I got at Lowes, and printed all my instagram photos
on my home printer.
Use with slides, or even better, during the holidays, use to hang all of those
beautiful Christmas Cards you receive in the mail!
This was a very cost effective gift, thoughtful gift, and super easy to put
Cost: approx. $30
5. A darling ornament / birthday reminder gift
This idea comes from Jamie at the Crafting chicks last year.
She took lids from the tops of juice cans, made a darling photo collage on
her printer, and then made ornaments for each of her kids. So I wanted to
take these “lid ornaments” a step further. After the holidays, simply clip off
the string, and use as magnets.
I chose to put each nephew and nieces birthday on it, so I can display their
picture on my fridge to remind me each month of their special day!
Cost: approx $6 for printing pictures off printer, and magnets!
When wrapping your gifts this year, use a picture for the tag to tell who the
gift is to. Much easier for little ones who can’t quite read yet, to know which
gift is theirs, and so much more personalized for the people receiving! It
might even be fun to find old pictures of when adults were children!
