If a picture is worth a thousand words, then personalized photo gifts must be worth more than that. Photos serve as a fun visual reminder of memories and when those photos come in other forms like a coffee mug or refrigerator magnet, even more so. Your grandma is sure to appreciate that photo of her grandkids even more if she gets to look at it every time she drinks her coffee. So, next time you're looking for cute, personal gift ideas for your friends or family, consider one of these personalized photo gifts:
There are several companies that make socks with your face (or your dog!) on them. They make a great gift for any occasion. You can put your face or your recipient’s on it, depending on what message you want to send.
Share your face first thing in the morning with a personalized photo coffee mug. Pair it with a message like “I love you a latte” to add a little spice and humor.
Get cozy with your loved one by putting photos on a blanket. You can blow up one for a massive woven hug or create a collage of several images. Either way, a photo blanket means cuddles for days.
Perhaps an obvious choice for a personalized photo gift, but for a good reason. Photo books are such a special way to keep your memories and with fewer people printing their photos, it’s a great way to get them off your phone and into a more permanent medium to enjoy.
Photo magnets have come a long way since they first came out. You can get a cutout of your face, polaroid-style images, orfully framed photos to throw on a refrigerator. Every time your loved one goes for that midnight snack, they’ve got you staring back at them. With no judgment of course.
A photo calendar ensures year-long reminiscing. You can coordinate every month to a themed image or choose 12 of your favorite ones to share. Whatever you choose, your giftee is sure to love seeing your face every day of the year.
There are tons of choices of photo art out there. From a pop art interpretation to a printed canvas to wood block prints, turn your memories into something a little more special with photo art. This is a personalized photo gift that you can be proud to hang in your home for everyone to see. Whether you make it yourself, pay your artist friend to do it for you, or find someone on etsy or fiverr, this is a gift that is sure to be treasured.
Why not make them wear your face? Print any photo onto a t-shirt and add some text for context. It can be anything from a single photo with a beautiful quote to a repeating pattern of someone’s face. Whichever way you choose to share this gift, we are sure that there will always be comments.
A tote bag customized with a photo is both practical and sweet. Every time they carry books or groceries to the car, or head to the beach, the recipient will think of you. Not that they’ll have a choice if your face is on it.
Another great personalized photo gift idea is a phone case! There are many options out there for all different phone models (except maybe flip phones) and you can cover the whole case or do a cutout on a color background, depending on the look you’re going for.
Whatever gift you choose to put a photo on, we are sure it will be well received and treasured for years to come.
