Here are my top 5 ideas for photo-related holiday gifts for your family and friends.
Maybe it’s because I’m a photographer and I very much value tangible photo products like photo albums, framed prints, or even a refrigerator magnet or keychain, but I happen to think a personalized photo-related gift makes the perfect present! Even for that someone who seems impossible to buy for.
So here’s the list of my top five favorite products! I could have listed at least 30 so it was not easy to narrow it down to five.
I love Chatbooks and my kids love flipping through our books to reminisce about moments from their childhood. My youngest son has his own set in his room and I often find him looking through them. And my Mom and Mom-in-law love to receive these as gifts.
You can even use photos directly from your Instagram and choose to include the captions!
The best part is, creating and ordering Chatbooks is easy, fast, and affordable!
Check out their website and download the app!
“The magic frame that sticks to any surface. Get your photos in stylish frames that stick directly to your wall and leave no damage behind!”
Although I have yet to order these, I will be doing that this week! I have a few friends and clients that told me how much they love them! I have a bare wall that is just begging to be covered in Mixtiles!
3. PARABO PRESS
Here is another consumer lab that I have used in the past and I love their square prints!
I try to order these a few times a year and have them displayed all over my house! Follow their social media for fun ideas on how to display your own Parabo prints.
You order them in sets of 20 and you can choose 4″ square prints for $10 or 5.5″ inch square prints for $15.
You can upload photos directly from your phone, Instagram, Facebook or Dropbox.
Check out their website!
4. ARTIFACT UPRISING
Artifact has so many lovely and well made products to choose from! Choose from soft or hard cover photo books, prints, frames, cards, calendars and more. This is a great place to create a gift for a loved one! And like the other companies, you can order from Facebook and Instagram.
5. ONCE UPON
“With Once Upon at hand it is easier than ever to make photo books from the pictures on your phone. Add a few photos to a page when you have a minute or two to sparBy saving your (big and small!) moments in a photo book you get away from the endless scrolling in your phone. Photo books also strengthen our relationships and spread loads of happiness.“
I have not tried these yet, but I plan to order one soon!
Their photo books begin at $25
And there are so many more ideas that I have not listed here!
- Tree Ornaments
The list can go on and on! So many companies out there offer so many fun ideas!
And remember, if you are a client of mine, don’t forget I have a lot of great photo products in my store that you can easily order directly from your online gallery!
But please do not delay in creating your one of a kind photo gift! Most companies require that you place your order by a certain date in order to get them in time for Christmas! So do not put if off any longer, order those gifts asap!
