DIY Christmas Gifts

*There are gifts using prints, and ideas incorporating digital files. If you’d like to create a digital product just make sure you have a print release before starting, no matter the photographer!*

We are officially 3 days away from one of the best (IMO) holidays of the year! If you’re like me, you just might be a little behind on getting some Christmas gifts bought/wrapped but I’m here to help you out. And since a picture says a thousand, I’m sharing my favorite ways to incorporate your lovely images into a gift for your family and friends!


If you’re looking for a cute idea on wrapping a gift, I’m all over THIS KRAFT WRAPPING PAPER AND TUCKING A PICTURE IN SOME STRING AROUND THE BOX. It’s such a simple and easy idea to dress up your gifts. You can add a bow, ribbon, or a little bit of green to add some color. And instead of putting a name tag on the gift, you could add a picture of you and the person you’re giving the gift too!

THIS GIFT is a little more work, but a fantastic present for a family member! Personalized ornaments are so unique and I love how rustic these are, perfect for a Christmas tree 👌🏽

What can be more traditional than a photo book? If you’re like my friends and me you have a ton of photos and aren’t entirely sure what to do with them, this is the gift calling your name! You can make it super cute and affordable using Walgreens, Target, or Mpix to create one. MPIX gets my vote for highest quality!

I love THIS IDEA of a foil-stamped calendar. What better way to start off 2017 than with a calendar? Plus, it’s got copper foil, so you really can’t go wrong with it 😉

What is your favorite gift idea? I hope you finish all your shopping successfully and have a very merry Christmas!
