Call me old fashioned, but I still think that personalized gifts are the best gifts! Especially for family and close friends. Every holiday, we seek out something truly unique for our families.
Sometimes it means photos. A few years ago, my siblings and I planned a surprise family photo shoot the day after Christmas for my mom! It was a rare time when the whole family was together and we had to take advantage! (Not to mention it was our first family photo is almost 10 years!)
This year, I was trying to think of what I could do with our family pictures. We took an incredible trip to India this year and have approximately 11 billion pictures. (Ok, more like 5,000. But STILL.) Then I had a beyond-brilliant way to capture our family’s travel memories on Tiny Prints…
We’ve visited 11 countries now as a family. How amazing would it be to get ornaments made for each place? We could turn our Christmas tree into a memory tree. I’m going to start doing this every year and begin by ordering some more ornaments with pictures of our favorite trips from the past few years.
It took me less than 5 minutes to choose my picture for 2015 (obviously, we had to go with the standard Taj Mahal picture for India!) and my ornament was ready to order!
I love that on Tiny Prints, you have the option to get your product reviewed by a designer. I wasn’t sure about the text being too light to read on my ornament, but a designer was able to check it and let me know it would be just beautiful!
We got one India ornament for us and another made up as a gift for my in-laws, who were with us on the trip. What a special memory – now every year when we decorate the tree, we will smile and remember our amazing trips!
What special way do you like to personalize your gifts for the holidays?
