Gifts Galore!!!

Do you know that you have the greatest gifts for others right in front of you?? Yup! Those images from this past summer are a goldmine and your loved ones will cherish the gifts that you create out of them. Talk about bringing an instant smile to someone's face! :0)

Here are a bunch of different ways you can use and preserve your photos and create wonderful gifts at the same time!

MyPublisher is a great resource for producing your own beautiful photobooks. To receive a coupon for a free copy of your book when you publish a MyPublisher book at the regular price, send an email to with the words MyPublisher in the subject line.

How about creating a family cookbook using family photos and favorite family recipes? You can do that at LuLu.

CafePress allows you to create your own calendars with a different image for each month. They also have notebooks, kids shirts, ornaments and many more items that are begging for you to use your precious photographs.

Did you know that you can print legal postage stamps with your own images? How about creating stamps for grandma with your childrens' pictures or send holiday cards with custom holiday stamps. You can create them online at or at Zazzle.

Once those stamps are created, you need the cards to go with them. Exposures is just the place.

*With Zazzle you can create a ton of great gifts coffee mugs to skateboards.
*Custom Makeup Bags (that are great to use for your camera when traveling!)
*Custom Photo Cakes for special occasions (check locally for this type of item)
*Custom gorgeous Coasters (I did this with my wedding photos as some gifts!)
*Photo Cuff Links are great gifts for him!
*Silver Locket Keychains let you take your special photos everywhere you go.
*Custom Playing Cards, Mouse Pads, Cute Baby Books, and more here.
*Sign the mat of a custom framed photo for any event (big or small).

(Really, the list goes on and on for the different items you can buy/create using your images and resources to find them at. Some of the better known ones being Shutterfly, Snapfish & Kodak.)
