It’s not Christmas without a little nostalgia—and since you have 7,567 photos of your kids/dog/vacation in Paris on your iPhone, why not get creative and turn them into a totally original photo gift? Here, nine options guaranteed to delight everyone on your list.
PRINT YOUR PICS ON STICKERS FOR KIDS
Choose up to eight familiar faces and turn them into stickers—96 total—that your child can illustrate to her heart’s content (30-page coloring book included).
OR TURN THEM INTO STICKERS FOR ADULTS
Scrapbooking, FTW. Instagram-sized stickers—say, of your most recent vacation—can be used to decorate a travel journal…or your fridge.
CREATE A SUPER-LUXE WALL CALENDAR
The most low-maintenance photo gift that ever there was. Seriously, only one pic is required for this 11-by-14 design, printed on ultra thick paper with foil-stamped type.
OR TURN THEM INTO GIANT PHOTO STRIPS
Make your BFF laugh out loud when you gift her four stacked—and oversize—selfies, all snapped when you were three glasses of wine in on your last girls’ night out.
MAKE YOUR OWN MODERN ART
This eco-friendly gift (the photos are printed on fabric, and the block is made of bamboo) doubles as a cool paperweight or a conversation piece for your bookshelf.
OR PHOTO COLLAGE-TURNED-IPAD COVER
Just like the ones Apple sells but better: Simply log into Facebook or Instagram to select pics for your personalized design (magnetic strip included).
PRINT A GORGEOUS PHOTO NOTEPAD
For the mother-in-law who still prefers paper, it’s a super-fun place to jot down to-dos.
TURN YOUR PHOTOS INTO MINI STATUETTES
Here’s how it works: You zap your pic off to a digital editor who will crop out the background, then voilà! An action shot that’s mounted on Masonite and displayed on a stand as if you’re freezing time.
