Photo Gift Ideas From the Experts | Families
One of my favorite things to give is a photo gift. It may be a photo book from a trip or a coffee mug with pictures of all the grandkids or a Christmas ornament of the newlywed couple. There is just something extra special about giving a gift with a precious photo on it.
Last year I started scanning my mother-in-law’s lifetime of photos. At Christmas I made her a photo book of old family photos of her ancestors, her immediate family and her growing up in rural North Carolina and Virginia. She called to thank me multiple times for the book and even took it on a “book tour” (her words) to show her siblings and her oldest, dearest friends. When is the last time you got that kind of reaction from a sweater or a necktie?
I’ve asked some of my home and photo organizing friends to share their favorite photo related gift ideas. There’s still plenty of time to get them made for this Christmas or you can get a jump on next year! And remember to give photo gifts for other holidays and birthdays as well. Hang on to the end and I am sharing a few of my favorite photo-related gift items.
