Gift giving can be stressful. There is nothing worse than seeing the look of disappointment on a loved one’s face if you’ve selected the wrong item. Personalized photo gifts are a great option because they show that you put genuine care and planning into the gift and that makes them more meaningful to the recipient.
London Drugs’ PhotoLab offers a great selection of items that anyone can customize for that personal touch. There’s something for everyone – even the impossible-to-buy-for person – at every price point. No matter how hard they are to please, there’ll be no re-gifting these gifts!
Photo Mugs: Choose from a selection of coloured mugs and add a photo, name and your own customized message. For a co-worker gift, try adding a photo and text indicating how they take their coffee. Everyone in the office will know whose mug it is and how to make their coffee just the way they like it.
The process is simple. You can upload a photo online – direct from your smartphone or computer – or bring it in to any London Drugs Photolab location. Next, you customize the text and send it straight to print. The mug will be ready for pickup the same day or you can have it shipped. From $14.99 for an 11oz mug.
DIY Ornaments: This is the perfect festive DIY gift. Include unique details such as a photo, names, special dates and holiday greetings on a variety of ornament shapes. The customized design can be created at a London Drugs PhotoLab or online at www.londondrugs.com/PhotoLab. From $6.99.
Customized Phone & Tablet Cases: Customize a Samsung Galaxy, iPhone or tablet with a rich, vibrant Metal Print and custom case featuring a favourite photo memory. This is a simple and thoughtful way to bring comfort and joy for gadget lovers this holiday season without having to spend the big bucks.
Choose your favourite style of case, upload a photo and London Drugs’ Photolab will create a customized Metal Print that fits securely on the new case. From $7.99.
Meaningful Wall & Home Décor: Many people shy away from giving art as a gift because it is personal and subjective. But so are the best gifts! Pick your recipients’ photo memory and have it printed on a Canvas Gallery Wrap (from $69.99) to create beautiful, stylish wall art they can enjoy for years. Or print a personalized image on a Photo Tile or Photo Plaque (from $9.99) for customized home décor. Create a special wall hanging with a mosaic of images or pick a single photo.
Priceless Photo Treasures: Memories are one of the greatest gifts we can give anyone. By adding special photos to a variety of products like jewellery boxes, aprons, t-shirts, Crystals, and more, you’re giving more than a gift; you’re giving someone the opportunity to reflect on priceless memories.
Photos and text can be included on each item. View the complete catalogue online. From $6.99.
Moments Photographic Albums: As the end of 2014 approaches, it’s the perfect time to collect all the photo memories of the passing year and turn them into a Photobook gift for a loved one.
The London Drugs Home Edition software allows you to individually select images straight from your computer, smartphone or social media accounts and then create customized themed backgrounds, intriguing page layouts and add special touches with personalized text. You can also further simplify the book creation process by selecting the Fast Track option, which lays out an entire photo book within minutes. Make it a holiday tradition!
