Fun With Personalized Holiday Goodies

I absolutely love designing my own projects and gifts for the holidays, whether I'm making a DIY craft from scratch or creating personalized goodies with photos via a service. I've admittedly forgotten about a lot of the presents and cards I've given out over the years, but I genuinely remember every single item that I've made or designed on my own. And it's those items that tend to make friends and family the most happy too. You just can't go wrong with custom, guys.

This year I decided to get some items made with pictures of Essley using Staples Copy & Print. It was so much fun to go through and shop for the different items available (custom holiday cards, invitations, and calendars, custom photo gifts, and more), then to add pictures to the items and preview how they would look. I ended up going with a funny Merry Christmas mug for my husband, some beautiful ceramic ornaments to give to our moms, and some silly holiday cards (you gotta love Essley's expressions). It was so simple to upload the photos and customize the items too. Once I'd decided what to get, it was just minutes before everything was designed and I was at my shopping cart checking out. And you couldn't beat the prices. I seriously can't wait to see everyone's expressions when they get their presents on Christmas morning.

If you're looking for personalized photo gifts or holiday cards this season, check out Staples Copy & Print. I'm telling you guys - you'll love being able to design, create, and print your own custom goodies for a great price. Think of it as getting more for less this holiday season.

  1. What a great idea! Everything is so cute.

  2. Personalized gifts are adorable when you have kids - Essley's expressions in those holiday shots just crack me up. With that said, I have learned that they are much less cute when you are an adult; my mother-in-law gave out calendars featuring my husband, my brother-in-law and me on year and, not surprisingly, they all found their way into the back of people's cupboards (just like our copy did!)

  3. People love getting personalized things, and I love making and giving them.
    Hand painted ornaments, portraits, and special memory landscapes usually keep me busy this time of year. I love that easy button, though! I'm totally giving my husband a special photo book this year. <3

  4. Those ornaments are so lovely!
