We’re willing to bet that if you opened the photos app on your phone, you’d see thousands of pictures, snapped over a period of weeks, months or years, telling the story of your life’s biggest milestones and brightest moments. Most likely, no matter how many likes they earned you on social media, very few of them have made it out of the digital ether and into the physical world. Why is this?
As much as we love snapping photos, we tend to look at printing and framing as a bit of a chore, something extra that sucks up time and costs us money. This is one of the reasons why surprising someone special with a unique photo gift is always a smile-earner—it immortalizes a cherished moment while also checking a task or two off your recipient’s to-do list. Win-win for all parties!
Whether for a wedding, an anniversary, a birthday or just because, bringing photos from digital dead-zone to real life is an amazing way to celebrate it. To get you inspired, here are some of our favorite personalized photo gifts to give for all things celebratory.
