Photo Gifts are fun all year long!

There’s a lot of ways to enjoy your photos.  This year my favorite Christmas gift came from my middle child.  She spent countless hours working on a photo slide show for me, using digital photos from throughout the years as well as text highlighting the important activities and events from 2011.   I have to say I was pretty amazed.  She even got the thumbs up from her older brother, which was a pretty big compliment coming from him.   And the whole family enjoyed watching and reminiscing!

But there were lots of photo gifts to go around this year.  Each of my children received a journal with a custom designed photo cover, from Paper Coterie.  This is a really fun site that I recently have discovered. They offer a diverse and unique line of photo books, cards and gifts.  If you haven’t checked out their site, take a look!  One of my favorite products is the Memory Keeper, which I’ve used for stashing trip momentos I want to hold on to.  Right now they are offering 50% off of all planners, journals and memory keepers for orders placed before January 23rd.  Just enter the code WELCOME2012 at checkout!

I also made photo Christmas ornaments at Personalization Mall.  They came out really cute and were a huge hit with the grandparents.  A friend of mine used mpix for hers and was really impressed as well.  Both of these sites have a lot of fun photo gift items.  

But photo gifts aren’t just for the holidays!   There’s so many times throughout the year that a photo gift says “I love you.”  And Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it…

What’s the most unique photo gift you ever made?
