8 Amazing Photo Gifts to Give This Year
Holiday miracle alert. There is an easy, affordable present out there guaranteed to delight relatives of all ages: a photo of your so-adorable-you-may-as-well-give-them-a-modeling-contract-now kids, new rescue pup or grandma on her wedding day. Yep, if it was photographed, you can gift it. But there are tons of options besides the basic framed 5x7 glossy. Here, the most modern, creative ways to gift a memory.
Minimalist Wall Ledge
The best thing about this simple, walnut-wood floating shelf is that photos can be swapped out anytime. Unlike that movie poster from college that’s still somehow hanging in your den.
Artifact Uprising (from $49)
Kids’ Art Book
If you can no longer open your refrigerator because it’s wallpapered with your kids’ artwork, we have a genius solution. Send their art to Plum Print using the shipping kit they provide. They digitally photograph it, and within weeks, you get a glossy book showcasing their creations in all their glory. You’ll even feel find tossing the originals.

Design Ideas ($20)
A Chatbooks Gift Card

Glitter Picture Frame
Know someone who loves glitz and glam? This will be the best $6 you ever spent.
Urban Outfitters ($6)
