Making Christmas gifts from family photos can be a lot of fun, especially when one of the parents is helping the kids make a present for the other parent! Here are some great ideas for Christmas gifts using family photos for both Mom and Dad.
Kids can make, or have made, some great Christmas gifts for their dad using family photos. For example, there are many things that a Dad can use at work or at his home office that can have pictures of the kids or of the family on them. Children can make a calendar with pictures of each person in the family on their birthday and the pictures that correspond with each month can match pictures that the family took throughout the previous years during those months.
Other great ideas for Dad’s office can include a personalized notebook with his picture or pictures of the kids and Mom, a mug, a desk organizer, a picture collage for his desk, a candy tin or stationary. These gifts are a fun and great way for Dad to have pictures of his family at work.
If a family has a Dad that loves to cook or to grill they can make their dad his very own apron. They can put a picture of Dad grilling on the apron, or they can put a picture of the family enjoying the food their dad cooks.
Of course there are also some clothing items that can be personalized with pictures just for Dad. They can make Dad a T-shirt, sweatshirt, a necktie, or even boxers with his picture or their pictures on them!
There are also some great Christmas gift ideas for Mom too. If the Mom of the house loves jewelry the kids and her husband can make her a charm bracelet or a necklace with their pictures in it. This can be a great way for the Mom to keep pictures of her kids with her at all times. A jewelry box to house the great jewelry could be a great gift too. The kids could order online or make a personalized wooden jewelry box with a picture of them with their mom on it.
If Mom spends a lot of time in the kitchen making her a personalized cutting board, trivet, or apron can be a fun Christmas gift. And a family could compile all of their favorite recipes with pictures of them eating the great food and make their mom her very own cookbook.
Moms also like to keep things tidy around the house so the family could make coasters, placemats, magnets, and serving trays for their mom to help her keep drinks from making rings on furniture, keep the table clean, keep papers in order, and serving food without spilling!
There are also some great ideas that would work really well as a combined Christmas gift for both Mom and Dad. The kids could pick out a picture to put on a wall clock or for a photo skin for the parents’ cell phones, Ipods, or laptops. They could make a mouse pad for the home computer or make stamps with the pictures of the kids for Mom and Dad to use throughout the year. Of course Mom and Dad would both appreciate a family picture calendar or a collage poster of family pictures. And making a throw or fleece blanket with family pictures can be enjoyed by both Mom and Dad throughout the cold time of year.
