Personalized gifts are some of the greatest gifts you can give, especially during the holiday season. Shutterfly is our one stop shop for those special sentimental gifts and family photo cards.
Sending and receiving Christmas cards is one of the most exciting things of the holiday! My son loves being able to check the mailbox and see the beautiful cards that await. Most holiday cards now include family photos and for my family, it’s a great way to give family and friends a updated snapshot of my kids! I use Shutterfly every year to design our Christmas cards. Uploading pictures are super easy, plus they have a vast selection of card designs. I can favorite my top choices to narrow down the selection. The hardest part of the Christmas Card process is picking between every awesome design I fall in love with. It’s always without fail that when my final cards come in that bright orange box, they look incredible and the pictures look crystal clear on the card stock.
While Shutterfly is our Christmas Card site, I’m also able to do most of my Christmas shopping with just a few clicks!
Here are some of my hot ticket items:
Wall Calendars: I started the tradition when my son was born of making customized calendars for his grandparents through Shutterfly. Five years and two more babies later, it’s the most anticipated Christmas gift!
Photo Books: These wonderful keepsakes are another great way to showcase how much everyone has grown in the past 12 months! I made a “Big Brother” photo book for my oldest this year that included all candid photos of my boys. Plus I was able to add in special little extras, like quotes.
Canvas Prints: My parents had a canvas print made of my oldest son when he was 8 months old, but don’t have one for my youngest son. This year, they’ll finally get the matching canvas print for my youngest son and the new Princess!
Ornaments: The photo ornaments are perfect for teachers and super cute.
Throw Pillows: Christmas shopping doesn’t mean you can’t splurge on yourself! I’ve been searching for Christmas decor pillows for months and couldn’t seem to settle on any I loved. I decided this year, what better pillows than one that includes my babies. I decided on the pictures we used for this year’s Christmas card to keep it extra festive!
Each project is incredibly easy to create. The site walks you through step by step instructions for design, which allows you to customize as much (or little) as you like. The proofing section allows you to take one final look at the overall project before sending to print. Plus, Shutterfly has an actual team that reviews each project. A few years ago I actually received A CALL from Shutterfly when they reviewed my Christmas card! The representative noticed that the picture (which was from a cell phone) was not to a crisp clear quality and wanted to verify I wanted the order. I was so blown away by the level of service, I was hooked to Shutterfly even more!
This year don’t scramble to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list, just visit Shutterfly!
*Disclosure: I received product for my review, however my love and addiction for Shutterfly is real.
