Well it’s that time of year again where we are trying to hurry up and figure out what we are going to get our loved one for the holiday’s. I absolutely love giving gifts. Before I was married, I remember getting my mom a Nutcracker or an Elvis CD I found at the store and I could barely wait until Christmas to give it to her. More times than not, I would end up giving it to her early. As my parents got older, one of the things they told my brother and I was to not get them anything because they get themselves whatever they want anyway. And there is nothing harder than to try and figure out what to get someone who pretty much has everything. However, I have kids and they don’t understand that concept so I get or make something for my parents and my in-laws from Zack and Bella.
One of my favorite things to do is use their cute, little faces and make them a photo gift. Using sites like MailPix.com, you can make all your holiday gifts in under an hour, pay for them online and have them shipped to your doorstep. Super easy…and I like easy! Here are some of the photo gifts that I made:
I absolutely love these photo coasters! I bought a set for our house! These coasters come in a set of six. You have the choice of using the same image for all six coasters or using six different images. There is nothing I hate more than to get a water ring on my table, but with kids I need something that is easy for them to use. Heavy marble coasters are not a good option for our house. I would end up with dents in my table from them dropping them. Or a broken toe, because we know they would end up dropping it on my toe!
I made this keychain for the kids to give their dad. I was pleasantly surprised at how clear the picture turned out and how heavy duty the keychain is! Very nice gift!
I also made our Christmas cards through MailPix.com. And yes, I really did tie my kids up with lights and duct tape their mouths! Isn’t it cute?!? The cards turned out very nice! They are printed on a nice quality photo paper and they come with envelopes. Be sure to enter 10FREECARDS in the promo code section at checkout to receive 10 free cards!
And finally, my most favorite item…the fleece photo blanket with my kids picture on it. I originally ordered this blanket to have the kids give it to my parents and my in-laws, but my kids absolutely loved it so I may wrap it up and give it to them! We’ll see!
This is a new company and I have to say, I am mega impressed with them! I had a slight snafu at the beginning where the site was saying it shipped my blankets, yet I hadn’t received them. I contacted customer service and I had a response from them almost immediately. They told me that their system glitched and they MORE than took care of the situation for me and my blankets were printed and express shipped to me. This is definitely a company that cares about their customers and is willing to go the extra mile. After that incident, I happily ordered everything else you saw in this post. It shipped fast and their were no issues at all!
