It can be challenging to find that perfect gift for loved ones. But for close family and friends, the most appreciated gifts are often of a personal nature. In other words, gifts that show you’ve taken a little time and care to prepare are usually better than a ‘thing’. Even if that thing is perhaps more expensive. However, bear in mind that this rule doesn’t count for teenagers. Oh no, they always want the ‘thing’, and the more expensive, the better! But seriously, in a world where most of our material wants are met, who doesn’t love a gift that shows thought and care? Personalised photo gifts fulfil that brief perfectly. So, if you’re wondering what to get your family or friends on their next special occasion, read on.
A twelve-month planner makes a great gift for folks who like to stay organised with paper notes. You can buy the component parts yourself, such as the binder, calendar inserts and photo sleeves. Or, a better idea is to get your favourite 12 photos together and upload them to a specialist online printing company such as Photobox or Office Works. The images can be places you’ve visited, family shots or local scenery. Essentially, anything that’s personal to the recipient.
Digital Picture Frame
A Digital Photo Frame is the perfect way to display a changing collection of images. Older ones take the pictures from a memory card or USB stick. However, new ones are even better. They are connected via WiFi and can therefore be changed from the other side of the world. Moreover, most have unlimited cloud storage, so there’s no limit to the number of photos they can display. As personalised photo gifts go, this is the most expensive but also the most dynamic.
Fine Art Prints
The medium you choose to print photos onto makes a huge difference to their perceived specialness. So, printing your best images in high resolution onto fine art mounted cotton paper creates a desirable gift that’s sure to impress.
Every now and then, you come across a really fantastic photo that must be displayed! Fortunately, many online printers can turn your image into an impressive large-scale canvas print.
