Photo gifts are one of my favorite gifts to give. Photo gifts are a beautiful way to preserve memories and make keepsakes that will be treasured for many years to come. Through our photos help us recall important dates and special moments in our life. Great photos always make us smile. Here are some ideas for the best photo gifts to give.

Making photo gifts is much easier than you might think. With websites like Shutterfly, you just need to decide what type of gift you would like to make, upload your photos and then create your gift.
If you are new to making photo gifts, I suggest starting with simpler gifts like:
- Coffee Mugs
- Photobooks – New customers get a FREE 8X8 Photobook with the code FREENEWBOOK through 12/31/2019 (shipping still applies).
- Notebooks (pictures on the cover)
- Calendars (this is one of my favorites) – New customers get a FREE wall calendar with the code FREECALNEW through 12/31/19 (shipping still applies).
If you are more experienced making photo gifts, I suggest more challenging gifts:
- A woven blanket (I made one a few years ago with pictures of my kids – it’s still one of my favorite creations)
- Desktop plaques
- Tree ornaments
Shutterfly has so many ideas to make a unique gift with all your favorite photos from this year. Take a little time to explore and find your favorite ideas.
Do you have a great family picture from your summer vacation or a recent family get together? Why not make it a canvas photo. You can make beautiful canvas photos at CanvasPop. Over the years, I have made a few family photos canvas photos (photos from my children’s adoption finalization), a canvas print is an attractive way to preserve a special memory.
