Print pictures as stickers

As a mom, you take so many pictures. Finally get them off your phone with Canon's pocket-sized Ivy Mini Photo Printer (it's Bluetooth enabled). Not only can you decorate your office supplies with your family photos, you can snap a photo of your kid's face, use the Canon Mini Printer app to add filters or text, then print the picture and use it as a label. Stick a photo of your little one at the pool on a box of your kid's swim supplies before you put it in the attic for winter, and you'll know exactly where to find his swim floaties and goggles when summer comes. $129.99; shop.usa.canon.com
