Unique Photo Gifts
This will be the most unique holiday season that most of us will ever see (hopefully) so here are some ideas for unique photo gifts for your family and friends! I wrote this thinking about gift ideas for Christmas and Hanukkah but most of these will work for any occasion.
A few reasons to start planning in advance:
- If it is truly a custom piece, the maker needs time to create the gift.
- If you need more than 1-3 photos, it may take time to decide on your favorites. (for example last year I wanted to do a picture of the day calendar but never found the time to pick the pictures)
- If you have something ready to print, it is much easier to take advantage of the sales that will be coming up
- If you order early, you don’t have to worry about paying for expedited shipping or shipping delays
The unique photo gifts will be broken into three categories: Heirloom, Fun, and Practical.
Heirloom Unique Photo Gifts
These are gifts that will hopefully be handed down for generations to come. These gifts are meant to be displayed and most likely not used on a regular basis.
Fun Unique Photo Gifts
These are gifts that are meant to be used and enjoyed. These items you may not worry about the quality because they will be handled (and maybe washed) on a regular basis. There are SO MANY options and I am just sharing some that I have personally purchased.
Your Title Goes Here
Your Title Goes Here
Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.
Let’s hope this is the only year we consider giving masks as gifts! Remember your face is not a flat surface so think carefully about what image you choose, what size, and where you leave empty space.
A selfie stick has been my essential for me for years but even more important with social distancing. I got this new one before a recent trip that has a removable remote and it can turn into a small tripod. It is always in my purse.
Puzzles have been very popular with people of all ages this year. I’ve seen them with as little as 12 pieces up to over 1000. One gift that I remember from my own childhood is a photo puzzle when I was about 8-years-old.
Deck of Cards
My son started playing war when he was three so this is another fun gift for almost any age. Pick just one photo or create a collage.
So many options for fun blanket to keep warm during the cold winter days and nights. You can think beyond pictures of your family and friends. Last year, I took Anderson’s artwork and made a collage.
Instead of the typical wall calendar, I love this daily desk calendar that rewards you with a new photo every day.
Practical Unique Photo Gifts
These are gifts that can help you organize, preserve, share or celebrate your photos and videos.
