In today’s day and age so much is available to purchases with a couple clicks of the mouse. With Amazon.com and other online retailers, most items can be had within 48 hours, delivered right to your door.
That convenience makes gift-giving quick and easy but it also takes a little bit of the personal touch and thought away from giving presents.
Here are some fun and creative gifts that you can design using your photographic talents and a little imagination. Your friends and family will love how you went the extra mile to create something special for them.
What better gift to commemorate a special family trip or vacation than a personalized jigsaw puzzle.
You can relive the memories of the trip while your family assembles the photo puzzle together.
Another fun idea is a personalized cellphone cover.
These can be purchased for most major phone brands and protect your phone with a gorgeous personalized image.
It’s a wonderful gift that combines fashion and function
For the world traveler, customized photo luggage tags are a wonderful concept and highly practical.
Another fun idea is a personalized shower curtain. It’s certain to be a big hit with small children that normally avoid bath time.
I hope this has given you some great ideas and resources to create some memorable photo gifts for your loved ones.
You will be amazed how touched and honored your family and friends will be, to have personalized gifts created with your own stunning photography.
