At Pinhole Press, we love the holiday season. There are twinkling lights illuminating the streets, malls are packed with gift-givers galore and it is fully acceptable to have hot cocoa at any hour. During this jolly time we like to share our favorite holiday gifts to surprise your loved ones with, and you can get them all straight from your computer without even putting down your hot cocoa. Well, you might have to put it down, but only for a few minutes.
We asked around the office to see what some favorite photo gifts for the holidays are, as well as some new ones they want to try giving this year. So without further adieu, here are our favorite picks for the holidays this year.
The Recipe Board Book
“I’m going to make my mom a board book cookbook of all her favorite holiday cookie recipes she bakes every year. Her current ones all so gross from baking over the years. I think having them all in one spot plus laminated might really help!”
– Rachel, Smile Specialist for 7 Years
Return Adress Labels
“The best thing I’ve made to date are return address labels. I created really hysterical ones with a filtered Snapchat photo on it for my holiday cards last year. I’m excited to continue the tradition this year.”
– Erica, Smile Specialist for 2 Years
12 Pack of Magnets
“They make great stocking stuffers! The kids love playing with them and they look great on the fridge. I may or may not have 60+ of those magnets covering the bottom half of my fridge at the moment.”
Dan, Smile Specialist for 13 Years
All About My Sister Book
“For my Sister, I am making an All About My Sister book for her 6-month-old daughter. Her little girl is the 4th child after 3 boys. She was born with Hydrocephalus and continues to defy the odds. I wanted to surprise her with a book to remember their journey and how much joy that little girl has brought into our lives.”
Daniella, Smile Specialist for 1 Year
Large Wall Calendar
“My family loves getting this gift every year because they get to see a new photo of my family that changes every month. When the year is over the calendar remains a keepsake almost like a photo album to flip through.”
James, Smile Specialist for 11 Years
Personalized Photo Card
“I love giving a personalized card with all my gifts. I’d like to think that it makes the meaningful notes I add to them that much more impactful and shows that person I really care.”
Bill, Smile Specialist for 16 Years
Custom Book of Names & Faces
“We went to a family reunion and my mom said, ‘We should make a book of everyone’s face so that Graham (her grandchild) can learn all the family members.’ I responded, ‘I know a great company that offers exactly that!’ I then took pictures of everyone’s face that day for the book.”
