On my 2010 Christmas Shopping List, I include a lot of personalized photo gifts. Here are a few of my favorite items from the past which I've ordered all from Shutterfly.
Holiday Cards. For starters, imagine my excitement last year when I realized that Shutterfly had a holiday card design that EXACTLY MATCHED my daughter's Christmas Dress (que the angels singing). How freakin' adorable right?! The Harmounious Noir Holiday Card
Calendars: I always order 4 calendars, one for each set of Grandparents, the Great Grandmother, and the Great Aunt. This is such a classic go-to gift for family. My favorite design is Flower Market. My favorite thing about ordering calendars is that you can enter all your important dates and quickly insert those into the calendar. All you have to do is enter the dates 1 time, and shutterfly will keep record of all of them. You can choose what dates to insert into what calendar.
Photo Mugs: I think the Handy Husband said this was his all time favorite gift the first year our daughter was born. It was a way to show her off to everyone at work each day.
Desk Calendar: I ordered this last year and didn't realize how big it was, but it is perfect for any family member that might have a glass covered executive style desk. It measures 16" x 20" This is the "Seasons" Design.
Notepads: I personalized a little notepad for my Mom to keep by her desk and personalized it to say "Linda's Love Notes" This design is called "Sassy Girl Stripes"
Photobooks: I created my daughter's Baby Book using Shutterfly. This was at the very top of my own Christmas Wish List in 2008. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS BOOK. It is beautifully bound and I cry everytime I look through it. Where as all the above listed items are very reasonably priced under $20 each, this book cost a pretty penny but it is my favorite gift in 3 years! This is a great gift idea for moms, grandmas, etc.
