I love receiving gifts. Who doesn’t? Next to spending quality time with family and friends, receiving gifts for the holiday season is always wonderful.
I am very appreciative for any gift that I received, big or small.
I work with children. During the holiday season I receive a lot of Dunkin Donuts gift cards from the parents. As someone who “runs on Dunkin,” I can certainly use the gift cards (one year I have over $100 in Dunkin Donuts gift cards!). In addition to Dunkin gift cards, I also receive a lot of bath and body products, or chocolates, both of which are things that I love and will enjoy as I’m using/eating them.
Last year, ON CHRISTMAS DAY, there was a knock on my door. It was from one of my students. Our program had to be quarantined two weeks before the Christmas break because of a COVID exposure. As a result, my student couldn’t give me the gift he got for me. He gave me a lovely BLOUSE! I was shocked! What a wonderful surprise.
I also love gifts that are personalized just for me. I especially love photo gifts, like canvas prints, photo cubes, and photo books. My husband is great when it comes to giving me photo gifts. He’s given me several photo books. When our kids each graduated from high school, my husband gave them photo books of them from birth to high school graduation.
This holiday season, if you are stumped on what to gift someone, why not consider a photo gift?
Mpix is an online producer of quality photo gifts, as well as photo prints. Yes, believe it or not, people still print out actual photos. I actually prefer photos over digital pictures because it’s easier to find something if it’s in a photo album.
Our 25th wedding anniversary just passed. I REALLY wanted to get one of Mpix’s Statuettes of our wedding photo. Their statuettes are so cool! They are cut outs (stand alone images) of your favorite photos. Check out these examples.
How cool are they? I LOVE them!
Sadly, my husband and I eloped, so we don’t have professionally done wedding photos. The only photo we have of the day we married was taken on my mother-in-law’s camera (it’s seen towards the top of this post). So basically we have a scan of a photo from 25 years ago. The quality of the photo is not really “do able” for one of these statuettes. So I was never able to get one made for my husband for our anniversary.
I’m now considering getting one of the Mpix Holiday Ornaments. They have different shapes available. I was also thinking about getting photo ornaments made up of our deceased dog and cats, so that we have a “furever” reminder of them during the holiday season.
Mpix has a lot of great photo gifts that you can give this holiday season (and year round too!). Some other examples include;
- Photo Books
- Acrylic Blocks
- Accordion Mini Books
- Playing Cards
- Luggage Tags
- Photo Blanket
- Photo Coasters
- Wall Calendar
- And so much more!
I like the wall calendar idea. I thought about getting one made up with our pet’s photos (six cats, two frogs and a giant Goldfish).
The brand also offers personalized photo cards, which are great for the holidays, invitations and more.
Think about your loved ones – spouse, grandparent, child – I’m sure there are people in your life who would appreciate a personalized gift this holiday season featuring photos of those they love.
If you are looking for unique gift ideas (those statuettes are so cool!), or you would rather give a gift that was well thought out and personalized instead of something off a store shelf, then you should definitely check out all the possibilities at Mpix. Visit them only at Mpix.com.
Orders typically ship in one day too!
Check out this brief video about the company and the quality of their prints. I find it interesting that a photo professionally will go over your photo(s) to ensure everything is perfect about it.
