Deciding on a photograph for your Christmas card is a wonderful part of the Christmas season. Because of all the wonderful moments your family has experienced over the year, it can be hard to decide on just one. That’s why Tiny Prints offers collage Christmas cards. What do you do, though, when you still have so many wonderful pictures after you’ve chosen the ones for your Christmas card? This year, include them with the card but do it differently. Make them your gifts to your family.
There are so many creative ways you can use those great photos. Put them on a Christmas ornament and send them out to your relatives. Pick the shape and trim you like best and then add your picture. If your family loves it, this could be the start of a new family tradition. For someone special, such as a grandparent or a favorite aunt, you could turn one or several photographs into an acrylic photo block. Every time this loved relative sees it hanging on their wall, he or she will think fondly of your family. Another fun idea is a mug. These have room for several photos, along with a personalized message, so you can tell an uncle that he’s the world’s best or funniest.
Be creative about the way you wrap your gifts as well. You could use ordinary wrapping paper, but you’re giving such awesome gifts! Don’t be boring at the last moment. Create your own Christmas wrapping paper. You could include photos of your family so they know it came from you or tailor it for each family. You can also make your own gift tags so your family members know these gifts are just for them. Write a Christmas message and include your family’s name. Touches like these are sure to let your family know how they mean to you.
"We send photo Christmas cards to close family and friends. I am a mom with two daughters and have done a variety of themes. This year is perfect! We vacationed in Costa Rica and have amazing photos to share. The Feliz Navidad card is perfect. It's not Halloween yet and I'm ready to send them out. Thank you for your wide selection and beautiful designs! It is worth the extra price to me over what Costco or CVS have to offer."
