Use photos as part of the gifts you give. People respond to gifts that have photos in them or on them, especially if they are in the photo with you! Personalizing your gift with photos can make even a deck of cards or coasters special.
Did you go on a trip with a friend or relative? Make a book of the photos and recount the adventures you had together.
Have someone graduating from high school or college? Make a calendar of family photos for that first year with important family dates on it.
Posters or wall prints are great for celebrating milestone birthdays, anniversaries, or a great sports season.
Sometimes all you need is a frame to show off a portrait. You can get a special photo printed on a frame-less acrylic or metal plaque.
Sometimes giving the place to put pictures is the perfect gift. A magnetic display board is a great way to display photos and memorabilia for a short time and then change to celebrate the next season or event. It takes the refrigerator magnet to a whole new level.
Of course you have your mugs and mouse pads, but don’t stop there. Photos personalize almost anything these days. I have a tie with my son’s photo repeated multiple times and every time I wear it, people comment and my son notices.
Put pictures of the giver and receiver on the gift tags you use. This makes them special and opens opportunities for even young children to know who the gift is for.
On Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduations, various holidays, or when you want to say, “I love you, you’re special” give a gift they will open again and again. One with pictures!
