In years past, around the holidays, I enjoyed creating beautiful holiday cards. I’ve moved on from cards, but many still send them each year. Now? I focus on creating Shutterfly photo gifts for family members. Shutterfly is at the top of a very short list of favorites for creating photo gifts. However, picking the top 5 Shutterfly photo cards and photo gifts, to share with you is EXTREMELY difficult.
Shutterfly photo card options
Seriously, there’s 5 x 7 tri fold cards, as well as back of card designs. The variety of styles to choose from will blow your mind:
- Merry and Bright
- Photo Basics.
Narrowing them down, torture. The best tactic? Choosing photo card styles fitting our personality: Whimsy, Contemporary, as well as, Merry and Bright. It was still difficult to pick just five styles, however, for all of you, I bit the bullet and got it done!
November Sunflower’s top 5 favorite Shutterfly photo cards
My top 5 favorite Shutterfly photo gifts
However, since photo cards aren’t my thing these days, I’m sharing my favorite photo gifts! We all know I’m addicted to Photo Books, so that’s just going to be at the top of my list for gift giving around the holidays. HOWEVER, there are so many more photo gifts Shutterfly has, I’m starting to enjoy inserting a bit of variety into the photo gifts I give out each year. Check out my favorites BEYOND photo books:
Samsung Galaxy Cases
I’m a Android smartphone girl, and Samsung is my phone brand of choice. FINALLY, someone has created a way for me to customize a case with photos for my Samsung. THANK YOU, and good night.
The Christmas Tree in our house is covered in ornaments the kids made. However, it’s covered in ornaments I created out of photos. I also love giving photo ornaments to family. Capturing the year in photos makes a great keepsake for years to come. There’s a lot to choose from, but the one I love is the Photo Gallery 2″ Cube Ornament. It allows me to choose a variety of photos to truly tell the story of our year. A close runner-up is the Wonderful Year Rectangle Metal Ornament. Again, I can choose a few photos, plus it’s METAL. Durable, and lasts for generations!
Even though I’m an Android smartphone lover, everything else in my life is iOS. I’ve an iPad. I take it everywhere with me, because I’m involved in social media. Pretty much every event I attend, requires a smartphone and tablet. It’s easier with my iPad, instead of lugging a heavy laptop. All of the cases on Shutterfly are gorgeous. I love them all.
Wood Wall Art.
I can’t even…..it’s just too cool. Photo goes on the wood, the wood grain shows through – insanely beautiful.
Yes, pillows with your family’s photos on them. Accent a couch, along with a bed, with pillows like these. How funny would it be to have each kid with a pillow in their room with their faces on it? Or if you’ve little ones with separation anxiety when leaving them overnight – slap your photo on a pillow, and they have it to ease their anxiety. It’s just beyond cute.
