We have a gift for everyone on your holiday list! Don’t believe us? Take a gander at how we broke it down.
1. The Sentimental Grandparents
Grandparents love their grandbabies. So give them the tangible. The first thing they’ll want is a brag book. We have several smaller photo book sizes just perfect for the grandparents and all under $25. These sizes ( 6×4.5, 6×6, 6×7.5, 6×9, 8×6 and 8×8) start at 10 pages for under $25. Add as much as you like or stay within budget, the choice is up to you, either way the grandparents will have their grandchildren within arm’s reach making them very happy.
2. The Fabulous Foodie
We all have these types of friends. They talk about the best wine they’ve ever had, the best new restaurant in town or they are constantly instagramming their lunch. Why not make a wall gallery showcasing their favorites? It’s fun and easy to do. Now you don’t have to go this large, but it gives you a great idea of how to pair it up — two landscape images with a square in the middle. You could do two 8×10″ landscape portraits with an 8″ square in the middle. The balance is beautiful and if you can have a theme, it will really make it stand out.
3. The Free Spirit Traveler
They live to hit the road. It’s no wonder it’s hard for them to keep their feet planted in one spot. Why not take an old map and photograph their favorite location and then put it on a metal heart? It’s a fun and different way to showcase where your traveler left their roaming heart. An 8″ metal heart is only $24.95
4.The Awesome Client
They make it all worthwhile. They are the reason you do what you do. They love your work and sing your praises. Give back to them all year with a desktop calendar. Compact and colorful, these calendars have a sturdy built in easel so they stand on their own. They are available in two sizes – regular (8.27 x 3.74) and large (12×5.43)
5. The Beautiful Bridal Couple
There are so many little moments the bridal couple miss on their wedding day because they can’t be everywhere. Luckily, today’s digital age it’s easy to round up these little moments and put them int a photo book for the couple. The couple will probably have their own professional wedding photo album but a little side photo book of those candid moments is the perfect compliment to their album. You probably know a few folks from the wedding, spread the word and see if you can gather the images. A lot of weddings nowdays will also have hashtags on instagram to find all of the images. Upload the images and use one of our pre-designed templates for ease and you’ll have the perfect surprise for the perfect couple – a photo book of golden wedding memories.
6. The Cutie Patootie Toddler
Toddlers love to see themselves and their world in pictures. Why not make an ABC photo book to bring joy to them? It’s easy to do and we have all the stickers you’ll need. You’ll just need to come up with some clever ways to showcase their world according to the alphabet.
7. The Eye-Rolling Teenager
If they have an Instagram account, why not make a photo book with all of their amazing photos? This one is a little tricky, you’ll have to let them know what you are doing by asking for the Instagram login so you can upload their images. Once you’ve uploaded their Instagram images we have some wonderful photo book templates that will make this project easier for you. Try the template Camera Phone White or Black . Check out dailydigi.com ‘s write up on how to make an instagram for your photo book – HERE.
8. The Amazing Teacher
They are with your children for hours every day. Why not give them something that is sure to tug at their heart strings. This takes a little effort and coordination but the payoff is big. Take a picture of each child in the class and have them write down what they like about their teacher. Then put it into a sweet little 6×6 or 8×8 photo book for their enjoyment. It’s sure to be a one of a kind gift that will be cherished for a lifetime.
9. The Person Who You Forgot
It happens every year. There is that one person that we forget. Luckily, we have a gift that is perfect for him or her. It’s our gift cards. Our gift cards are easy to give, and wonderful to receive. Choose from six different styles and accompany them with a personalize message. No expiration dates, no postage costs or delays, no hassles- an AdoramaPix gift card is always the right choice
