    Default Photo gifts for Xmas - suggestions?

    I want to give some photo-based gifts this Xmas to my mum and MIL.

    Not sure whether I should make a calendar or create something else?

    Suggestions? I'm happy to use one of those online photo places to make something.

    I've had photo mugs made for my parents and in laws this year. Each mug has a photo of dd printed on it and will be paired with a bag of good quality coffee or t2 tea. We did calendars last year so I thought I'd try something a little different this time.

    Every year we make a calendar for FIL and my parents. I'll probably do that again. I have also made my mother a photo book before.

    I also really like BettyV's idea. We usually do a mug for fathers and Mother's Day, but I really like the idea of pairing it with good tea or coffee.

    I do a calendar every year for mum with all the family birthdays marked in- all grandchildren and children, not just my family of 5 lol.

    Have you had a browse through what they have on offer? I find that most places offer the same products and there is some good inspiration there.

    We are doing calendars this year too for parents/grandparents. I get together with my sisters and make sure there's pictures of all the grandkids included. I like the idea of mugs with coffee/tea though!

    We do a photobook through snapfish. We wait until a special comes up and do then. We completed ours yesterday and got 70% off our order 😁

    We do little desk calenders every year
    $8 from Vista print and they look great and the family love them.
    Their standard shipping takes less than a week!

    I usually do either a calendar or collage print. I've done a calendar for the last couple of years so this year I did a collage print. Will frame them too. Snap fish have some great specials and I find the quality is really good.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    I just created a calendar on Snapfish and ordered 2 of them!

    Might end up getting some other items too, we'll see.
