Photo Christmas Gifts for the Parents
Creative Photo Gifts This Christmas
Whether it’s with their good advice or active support, our parents are always there for us. Christmas is the perfect time of the year to say thank you and give them a little something to show your appreciation.
Here we’ll show you several ideas for creating individualised photo gifts for your parents that they’re sure to love.
A Photo Mug for Christmas
Dad always knows best and Mum is our everyday hero. A self-designed photo mug is the perfect gift to show your parents you think about them every day and how much they help and mean to you. Use a nice photo from your last holiday combined with a personal message and the mug will be perfect for any kitchen or office.
Use any of our numerous design templates to create your individualised photo mug. The panorama mug offers you enough space for collages or landscape photos. You can use any one of our ten different Christmas designs to give your gift a little more charm. The designer will lead you step by step through the design and ordering process. In just a few days, you’ll receive your mug directly at your doorstep packed in a small box.
A Smartphone Case as a Christmas Present
Even mum and dad have probably caught up with the times by now and are also part of the digital age. Perhaps the smartphone was just fancy schmancy technology in the past, but nowadays it has become an essential everyday companion, even for parents. With an individualised smartphone case you can help protect this piece of technology from the elements while at the same time keeping memories alive.
Whether designed with a photo from your last vacation, mum’s garden, or times spent with the grandkids - their new smartphone case will be sure to bring a smile to their face when they unwrap it on Christmas. You can design the case with either a single picture or up to 6 different photos in the form of a collage. Here you can design a smartphone case for all current iPhone models:
A Memory-Filled Photo Flip
Your parents’ living room is already packed with framed memories and their bookcases already contain self-made photo books? Then you can perhaps share with your parents all your most cherished moments from the previous year with a photo flip. Available in either portrait or landscape format, the photo flip is perfect for the kitchen, windowsill, or office desk. Mum and dad can flip back and forth to their hearts’ content through 24 individually designed pages packed with holiday photos, smiling children, and shared moments from years past. The photo flip comes in 16.7 x 12.5 cm format and you can also add text to your photos in the designer. Click here to design the perfect photo gift for your parents.
Usher in the New Year with a Kitchen Calendar
Parents have tons of things then need to plan, such as parent-teacher conferences and family outings. Most parents like to hang up a calendar in their home kitchen to make sure they don’t forget any of their loved ones’ birthdays. This Christmas, why not individually design a calendar for your parents featuring your own photos?
The ifolor kitchen calendar is available in eight different colourful designs. The design templates “Polaroid” and “Colours” are attractive with their conservative monthly overview and offer you plenty of room to add notes as well as recipes and shopping lists. The other templates are a bit more classic in their design as far as kitchen calendars go and offer you room to make notes for every day of the month. The templates “Beady eyes” and “Teddies” are especially playful in their design and are perfect for displaying pictures of the kids or family photos. If you’d like to use a more conservative design, you could go with “Classical blue” or “Vintage photos.”
You can choose any month for the kitchen calendar to start on. When creating your calendar you can simply upload your photos in the designer and then move each photo to a certain month. After Christmas, your parents will be able to enjoy a new seasonal photo of the family each month when looking at their calendar.
A Personalised Christmas Card
In this day and age packed full with technology, it’s not too often that we receive hand-written messages. People love to receive written words of love from kids, especially during Christmas. This year, design your own Christmas cards to send to your parents and other relatives in the form of a photo greeting card.
You can personalise and design either a single greeting card for your parents or a set of 10 to send to family and friends. For eccentric ideas or a panoramic photo from your winter vacation, you could go with a panorama folded greeting card with a matching envelope. The card designer offers you many Christmas motifs which you can use to add single photos or a collage. You can also easily add your own personal message in the corresponding text box.
Many people nowadays use their Christmas cards as a way of summing up the year. Whether you decide to directly print out your message on the inside of the card or add it by hand later is completely up to you. Either way your parents are sure to enjoy receiving your personal message accompanied by photos from the previous year.
