It used to be that Christmas gifts that use family photos were just for Grandma or were made by the children for their parents. But with the amazing new technology available a person can easily make a fun and classy Christmas present using family photos that would be good enough to give their friends.
For the friend that likes to cook
If a friend likes to cook, giving them a personalized cookbook might be a great idea. A person can make a cookbook using the friend’s favorite recipes-or even some new ones that the person thinks their friend will enjoy-and include pictures of the family and the friend’s family enjoying food or spending time together.
Another great idea for a Christmas gift for the friend that likes to cook would be to make them an apron. They can put a picture-or several pictures-on the apron that have the person and the friend eating or cooking together.
For the friend from the office
If someone is a good friend with someone they work with, making them a mug or calendar might be a fun Christmas gift. They can put a picture of them with their friend on the mug. And they can put pictures from throughout the year on the calendar. Of course they can also personalize the calendar by putting pictures of certain people on their birthdays or putting fun pictures on holidays.
For the friend that likes jewelry
If someone has a friend that likes jewelry they can make them a Christmas gift using family photos that they can wear all year. The person can get pictures of the other person’s kids, spouse, and/or pet and put them in a necklace or a charm bracelet. It might also be a fun idea to make a key chain that has a picture of the friends together.
How to make and/or where to get them made
These are all great ideas for Christmas gifts for friends that use family photos, but it does take a little work after someone comes up with the great idea for it to become a reality. A person has two options when it comes to making Christmas gifts from family photos. One, they can make it themselves. Two, they can have someone else make it and pay for that to be done.
If a person would like to make the Christmas gift them self they will need a few supplies first. The most important thing would be the picture(s). Depending on the type of Christmas gift they will be making they may need the picture to be on the computer or they may need an actual print of the picture. And to get a print of the picture they could print it off themselves or they can order prints online.
Most craft stores have the supplies that a person will need to make the Christmas gifts using family pictures. Such supplies might include, wooden picture frames, a blank notebook, a scrapbook, Mod Podge, a charm bracelet, a wooden jewelry box, a blank apron, iron-on transfer paper, etc.
If a person does not have very much time, or does not feel they have the ability to make the Christmas gift as well as they would like, they can always use online photo services to make their Christmas gifts using family photos. There are many different websites that allow people to upload their family photos to create terrific Christmas gifts for their friends.
