I’m so excited to be sharing this Photo Gift Guide with you today!! Just a few beautiful, personal, one-of-a-kind photo gifts that I was able to create with the help of the creatives at Pinhole Press.
I love gifts!! I love to give ’em. I love to get ’em. I love finding that perfect gift that I know someone will unwrap and love to pieces!! There’s just something about that feeling that can’t be beat.
But, let’s just admit it, some people are Ha-ARD to buy for!! They don’t really need or want anything. Other people might need or want something but you have no idea what that thing is.
Enter PHOTO GIFTS!! Seriously… one of the BEST gifts on the planet. You’re wrapping memories up in a box for someone when you give them a photo gift. Eyes will water. Tears might flow. Hugs will definitely be delivered.
Today I am featuring some of the amazing photo gifts I was able to create for my family and friends using the gift design inspiration and wealth of options on Pinhole Press. You can find everything there… photo books, calendars, office supplies, wall art, wedding, baby, birthday, games, labels and a whole bunch more! I love that you can simply drag and drop your photos from your computer, Facebook or Instagram. You can also pull photos from other people’s Facebook feeds if you’re surprising them with a gift!! (I may have “stalked” a few people Facebook pages to do this) 😉
Psssssttt!!!….. one more thing before we continue…
Pinhole Press is offering 10% off ALL their products with the code GALMEETSFOOD now through December 10th… even Holiday Cards!! Don’t miss this offer!!
Okay! On with the Photo Gift Guide!!
Looking for less toys cluttering up your house and more family time?? Hey! ME TOO!!
That’s why this Memory Game called my name… or really shouted my name… when I laid eyes on it. I just dragged and dropped photos from Instagram and Facebook and was able to quickly create this personalized game as a gift for my kids at Christmas. It’s a small gift but I hope it will create wonderful memories as a family. I can’t wait to play this with the kids!!
I’m thinking David and I might just have to play a round or two on our own before we wrap it up to tuck under the Christmas tree. 😉
If your family loves “Game Night” or you want to start a game night as a family… there’s lots of resources at Pinhole Press to get you started!
MINI PHOTO WALL COLLAGE WALL CALENDAR
Perhaps, like me, you have someone in your life who is super scheduled and organized?? They always fills out their calendar for the year with appointments, birthdays, anniversaries, special occasions, etcetera etcetera etcetera…. in my dreams I’m crazy super good at remembering all these dates but hmmm…. nope. I’m definitely not.
But my mom is!!
And this Calendar is a perfect gift for her this Christmas! It’s personalized with a whole bunch of photos of her family… sisters, parents, my dad, kids and grandkids. I think she just might like it.
Hopefully she’ll keep reminding me when all the birthdays are. 😉
For all those organized, scheduled people in your life (or YOURSELF!)… you’ll love all the options Pinhole Press offers! It’s not just Wall Calendars… they have desk calendars, magnetic calendars and planners, too!
This is another gift for my kids! Again, the less clutter/ small pieces/ toys laying around the better in my book!
On Pinhole Press’ site this photo book is listed as a “Mini Book of Names & Faces“. But calling it a “Facebook” seemed a bit more “trendy”, right?! My kids aren’t anywhere near having Facebook profiles themselves (ages 5, 3 & 2)… but they know of Facebook and they “FaceTime” with daddy, grandpa/ grandma or cousins enough that I think it will make sense! I hope this gift will be a fun, visual way for them to learn or remember family members’ names… especially the ones we don’t get to see as often. I still included family members that they know well because it’s still fun for them to point at the photos and talk about the people they love with us.
You’ll find lots more Photo Books for Kids over at Pinhole Press so go explore a bit if that sounds like something that would fit for your family or as a gift for someone with young kids!
SQUARE PHOTO MAGNETS
I’m SO excited about these photo magnets!!!
There are two sweet sweet families here in the East Valley of Phoenix that have been so wonderful and loving to our family since we moved here last year. They have made us feel welcome and I’ve become close with both moms… they are my friends, my mentors and partners in crime. They understand this crazy stage I’m in with my young kiddos and I’m so grateful for them. What a blessing!!
We wanted to find some way to bless them this Christmas and when I saw these photo magnets I knew they were the answer.
Sooooo….. I kinda sorta stalked their Facebook feeds and photos and “stole” them to create this fun gift. Um… yeah. Ahem.
I can hardly wait to deliver these adorable photos!!
There’s lots more magnets you can choose from… larger photos, photos with text overlay, recipe cards and more!
I love my grandparents!! And my husband’s grandparents!! They are wonderful people and I’m so excited that I can get them something this year that I believe they will love and appreciate.
I decided I wanted a whole bunch of photos in the brag books I was creating… so I “cheated” and just used this Mini Photo Book instead. That’s legal, right?! Hee hee hee.
That is… Ho Ho Ho!! 😉
I’m so excited to give these photo books filled with photos of our family (but mostly the kiddos!) to all the lovely grandparents in my life. Something they can have to show their friends and to enjoy for themselves. YAY!!
(My grandma has been asking for this for some time now… finally Pinhole Press is helping me deliver!)
If you don’t want to go “Mini” or “Brag Book” there’s lots of other photo book options… hardcover, softcover, panoramic, journals!!… you’re sure to find a gift that fits in this section!
MORE MAGNETS!!!…. these ones are the yummy kind.
This IS a Food Blog after all, right?! It’s only appropriate that one of the photo gifts involves food, right??!
I used two of my favorite-avorite-avorite Gal Meets Food recipes to create these. My plan is to bake up batches of Banana Bread and Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies to give as Christmas gifts to friends/ family along with these recipe magnets. SO FUN!! They would make great host/ hostess gifts, too.
If you love baking/ cooking…. write out your recipe(s) and share them with loved ones. They’ll love the magnets even more if you deliver the finished product along with its recipe card! I know I would like it more!!
Share those tasty treats and sumptuous savory recipes! SO FUN!
And be sure to check out all the other creative magnet gifts… days of the week notepads for making your weekly meal plans, scribble pads to write love notes to your hubby/ wifey/ kiddos, calendars and lots of regular ‘ol notepads that are totally customizable.
Grab a cuppa coffee or your steamy beverage of choice… cuddle up on the couch/ chair… and get CREATING!!
I’m willing to bet you saw something or a whole bunch of somethings to check people off your Christmas list this year. Annnnnddd….. if you’re anything like me… you might just find something or somethings for YOU too while you’re at it! 😉
Remember if you want to order something to use the code GALMEETSFOOD to get 10% off all products when you checkout. But don’t wait too long!! You have until December 10th to use the code!
Happy Photo Gifting!!
And MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! (too early??….. nah!)
