How to Personalize Your Gifts with Photos

You can create so many things using photos, and they all make great gifts! There are some really creative ideas in this list, ranging from minimal to big budget.

  • Photo albums after a big event, such as a wedding or family session
  • Scrapbooks with photos included
  • Handmade cards for Christmas, birthdays, etc.
  • Personalized mugs
  • T-shirts
  • Blankets
  • Banners
  • Posters

If you shared a special moment with someone or went to an event like a concert, you can create a collage of photos with things like event wristbands, confetti, and autographs. Or make a DVD slideshow and put some of their favourite music in the background, and have some cool transitional effects and stick some frames and icons around the photos.     

Get funky and try making one of these with photos: bookmarks, a photo memory jar, a photo pendant, a pull-out photo album, photo lollipops, postcards, photo pencils, gift tags, and a picture lampshade.    

The great thing about photos these days is there is so much you can do with them, digitally and physically, and with some of these ideas you can do both!

The creativity is endless. Whether you are on a budget or not, there is always something you can do with the gift of photography when you put your mind to it!
