Unique Photo Gifts for Christmas
1. Custom Photo Puzzle
Custom puzzles make great gifts for people of all ages! This time of year, I always pull out a few puzzles to work on while I sip on hot cocoa with the kids. These custom photo puzzles are made with your choice of photo, add names, and more! You can even memorialize your holiday card photo with a custom puzzle! It is printed on premium chipboard and arrives in a cute patterned drawstring pouch inside a beautiful box. Perfect for gift-giving.
Photo puzzles are available in 12, 60, and 252 piece sets.
This is probably one of the coolest things to do with pictures for gifts! I never thought of a puzzle before. Great idea.
2. Custom Photo Pillow
Does everyone love throw pillows? Or is it just me?! :) I know plenty of people can’t get enough of toss pillows, especially when you can change them up with every season. But what if you found a photo pillow that looks great in every season? And one that featured a favorite beloved wedding photo, or photo of your favorite people (i.e. your fam!) These photo pillows make unique photo gifts for the season.
These are the best photo gifts for your bedroom or home office. I am eyeing that first design to put a picture of Andrew and I from our wedding day. It would look nice in our room!
3. Photo Calendars
One of the best photo gifts is a calendar. It is the perfect time of year to ring in the new, especially when you can do it in style with one of these custom photo calendars. I rely on our family calendar in the kitchen to know important dates and upcoming occasions. To have a photo calendar of your favorite moments? Now, that sounds like the best photo gifts you can get!
This gift is useful day-to-day; after the year is through, you can save the calendar as a keepsake to remember everything you did, the vacations you took, places you visited, and more. It is like a scrapbook for your wall! These unique photo calendars are completely customizable.
4. Photo Vow Art
One of the most unique photo gifts for newlyweds is custom vow art. You can customize the center photo with your favorite wedding day snapshot; on the sides, include your heartfelt vows. I love this idea!
5. Baby’s First Year Photo Art
You’ve seen plenty of gifts for new parents, but this is one of the most unique photo gift ideas: baby’s first year as an art print! You can even get this framed. Those pictures you snap every month with the sticker on baby’s belly to indicate how many months he or she is can be turned into a sweet wall art keepsake. Great gift!
6. Photo Snapshot Art Print
All of those beautiful photos you’ve been saving on your hard drive, your camera, or your device deserve to come out and be displayed! Stop keeping your memories digitally and finally get your favorites printed. Photo art prints always make a great gift; this heart-shaped snapshot art print is one of my favorites. I bought one myself a few years back and it is still my favorite art piece hanging up at home. You can fit in so many memories here and get it framed to match your decor.
7. Photo Ornament Cards
Sending holiday or Christmas cards are a nice way to tell someone you’re thinking of them this season. But did you know you can send cards that are actual ornaments, complete with the ribbon for hanging included? These beautiful ornament photo cards are a favorite of mine. Show off your favorite wedding photo, engagement picture, a family snapshot — anything! Choose the patterned front and back design, add a message, and more. Each year, your loved ones will hang your ornament on their tree and think of you!
8. Photo Journals, Planners or Notebooks
Get a head start on your goal-making for 2021 with these unique photo gifts. Choose a journal, planner, or notebook and customize it with a photo (or collage of photos!) of your choice. These are beautiful; artful prints and patterns also available.
This one makes me smile. Let’s get a lot done in 2021!
