Photo Collage Wall Art
We love what blogger of Life as a Thrifter created for her soon-to-be-married friends, and think the idea could translate nicely into a gift for fellow parent friends as well. Using a few items (plywood, photos, Mod Podge, etc.), she created a gorgeous photo montage of the couple that anyone would be happy to hang in her home. If the gift is for an anniversary, the number could be the years they're celebrating; for a birthday, it could be the age.
Shutterfly Mouse Pads
Perfect for the person in your life who lives by his or her computer, personalized photo mouse pads from Shutterfly allow you to pick up to eight photos, available in either landscape or portrait orientation.
Photo Memory Jar
If you'd prefer to go the DIY route, creating a photo memory jar can be a nice way to help commemorate favorite moments using photos and mementos. Grab a small- to medium-size jar (depending on how much you'd like to put in it). Then determine your motif. Do you want to commemorate that fabulous vacation you took with your best friend's family? Print a photo or two from the trip and add it to the jar, along with any other items you might be willing to part with from the vacay -- like shells you collected, a souvenir key ring from the gift shop, or some sand, which you could pick up at a local crafts store.
Turn any happy family memory into a family activity by turning it into a puzzle. Simply upload the photo of your choice on Shutterfly to be made into a 252-piece puzzle. Afterward, the puzzle could be framed, making into a two-for-one gift -- our favorite kind.
