Homemade gift ideas using your photos to make personalized gifts

Looking for a great handmade gift for a special personalized gift , Birthday gift, Baby shower or gift for a doting mom or grandma?

Use your photos to make unique home made photo gifts

I've got tips and suggestions that will help you make gifts that will be really appreciated- at very little cost too!

A homemade gift shows so much careful thought and planning that it means much more than an expensive shop bought gift.

You can make personalized photo bags for your friends and family. These could show off baby photos, pets, wedding photos, sports photos- the choice is endless.

Many gifts claim to be unique gifts- this personalized gift really IS a unique gift- it's a one off, made by you, specifically for a person you care about. Your friends and family can carry round their favorite photos- and have a useful bag too!

Another way to make a unique photo gift is to pick a fabulous frame for a special photo to give as a personalized gift. You know what photo will be treasured- just think about it.

Have you had a wedding or birth in your family this year? Grandma would just love a photo of the special event for her Birthday gift.

For the younger generation you can find funky frames and fill them with their favorite celebrity photos.

If you want to spend a little more, then a digital photo frame filled with family photos makes a great personalized Christmas gift.I gave one to my mother of all the family holding my first grandchild- she was a very proud great grandmother!

Think about way in which you can use your photos to create unique, personalized gifts for birthdays and other special occasions.

      I love photo gifts! I make a dvd slide-show each year, made up of photos of each family birthday, holiday get together, and happenings of that year (soccer games) and add music that I download from Amazon. I give one to each of my kids and other family members for Christmas. (I use the previous Christmas photos at the beginning of the dvd.) Everyone loves it!
