Think beyond the photo calendar

If you have to make one more photo calendar for your in-laws, you might scream. Here, seven ways to get a lot more creative with photo gifting this year.


Print Your Pics On Glass

Fracture is a new service that makes it easy to print your beloved full-color pictures directly on glass. Photos arrive ready to hang and even come with a screw for easy installation.

Make Your Own Memory Game

For $20, Pinhole Press lets you choose 12 photos and turn them into a 24-tile matching game for kids. Populate the cards with relatives' faces, then give the game to your in-laws to bust out when the grandkids visit.

Turn Instagrams Into Magnets
