Gift-giving becomes even more special when you can incorporate your family photos into the presents. Family photos capture cherished memories and special moments shared together over the year or years, depending on what you decide.

Without further ado, here are my 5 Creative Gift Ideas Using Your Family Photos – a truly heartfelt way to utilize your cherished family photos:

Create a personalized photo calendar featuring your favorite family photos for your loved ones to enjoy throughout the year. Each month can showcase a different memorable moment, capturing the essence of your family’s journey together.

Compile a collection of your family’s most treasured moments in a beautifully designed album photo book. You can customize the layout or add multiple sessions into one session.

Metal Photo Ornament

A metal photo ornament is a unique and elegant way to display your cherished family photos during the holiday season. Or as a year-round decorative piece! They are durable and lightweight, making them perfect for long-lasting display.

Wood Print

Your family photo on a Wood Print is a unique and heartfelt gift that combines the beauty of natural wood grain with the beautiful memories captured in your family photo. Which is why I’ve included it in my 5 Creative Gift Ideas Using Your Family Photos!

The process to create a wood print is super interesting! A wood print is created by transferring your family photo directly onto a high-quality wooden surface. The natural wood grain adds a warm and different aesthetic to the image, giving it a unique and artistic appeal. The texture and characteristics of the wood enhance the overall visual impact of the photo, creating a stunning piece of art.

Gallery Board

A gallery board is printed on fine art paper with an extra smooth surface. And then mounted to 3mm styrene board for a durable and long-lasting print. This creative gift idea is wonderful for displaying on their own or in a custom frame. I love to display mine with an easel on a side table or nightstand!Creative Gift Ideas Using Your Family Photos can include a Megan Norman Photography Gallery Board.
