    Thanks everyone! I just wanted to share incase it helps you get ideas for your own gifts. I wouldn't have thought to make a lot of this stuff if I hadn't seen similar things on the forum. It's great that we can share ideas so easily with a forum.

    I love making photo gifts. Not just because it keeps me out of the mall this time of year. I just think they are so personal and people usually really like them. I posted one of the first photobooks I made on the forum. It was of our engagement pictures & I gave it to my grandma. She takes it with her everywhere!

    I had so much fun making the list of funny things from our trip. I printed a copy for myself & it cracks me up. I can't wait to give this present to my friend & watch her open it.

        Morgan, I am a Shutterfly addict myself. My cousin started making family calendars for Christmas so we alternate making them each year. I did a photocard for our engagement announcements. I have also made the ABC and Sesame Street books for FI's nieces and nephew, and plan to make one for my godson. Parents love them as they are more of a keepsake. You submit a faceshot of the child and they put it on the child character in the book. I think they were around $50 or so including shipping.

            I saw the ABC & sesame street books. They are more like a book than the dora & diego ones which are more of a photo album. I made the dora & diego books, because I had codes for free 8x8 books. But, I think the ABC & Sesame street books might be a little nicer. I'm interested to see how the kids react to them. I know the moms will like them, but I don't know what a kid will think about it. I'll let y'all know.

            I forgot to post our christmas cards. They were from shutterfly too.

                  Everyone really enjoyed thier shutterfly presents. I was a lot of fun giving everyone such personal gifts this year. I wasn't sure how the kids would react to the books, but they enjoyed them. They flipped through each page before opening the rest of their gifts.
