It’s not too late to give the gift everyone loves: their favorite faces or places on a gift. I love giving photo gifts because they fit everyone and everyone is sure NOT to have it! But my laziness gets in the way and I end up dropping the ball. Which is why these photo gifts are so awesome: they are a SNAP to make!
Minted: Customization is super simple on the Minted site. You can click, drag, and be done within minutes. Plus their designs are gorgeous and one of a kind! And you can finish all of your list there even if you don’t want to do a photo thing. They have everything from art prints to room signs. But of course, the photo gifts are incredible.
Mosaic: These photo books takes minutes to make. Just select twenty photos, enter your payment information, and one will be shipped to you or your recipient in a box perfect for giving. Did I mention it only takes four days?! Mosaic could not be more simple. I received a code to use for review and was impressed by just how nice it looked with no agonizing from me over the perfect placement, etc. And now through Monday the 15th, you get free shipping! If you want a longer book with the same simple process, use their new site Montage.
HP Photo Creations: Let’s face it, our mobiles are our cameras these days. So download the HP Social Media Snapshots app so you can print your photos directly from your mobile. Take it one step further and use the HP site to turn your photos into canvas prints. I just received one of a Beaches Moms shot I took at sunset as a gift from HP and I adore it! They are offering a special holiday discount right now. Enter HPPW at checkout and you get 35% off every canvas print (before shipping and taxes)!
Instantly Framed: don’t you hate receiving photos and then having them sit in your drawer because you never find the time to find a frame. Solve that problem for your loved ones by sending them a present from Instantly Frames. From their app, you can quickly pick a photo, have it printed with archival inks on professional photo luster paper, placed in a handcrafted FSC farmed walnut wood frame with a hand-painted soft black finish, and shipped in pretty packaging to your favorite. And the price includes free three day shipping so you have all this week to get your gift list taken care of!
Groovebook: Need a stocking stuffer or a gift for the person who has everything? Get them a Groovebook subscription. For $2.99 a month, Groovebook sends a book of 100 4×6 photos from your phone. You can keep them in the book or tear them out for framing. It’s the perfect gift for your Instagram obsessed niece AND your ninety year old grandmother who would never see photos otherwise. How often does that happen?
