Make Your Kids Happy With Personalized Digital Photo Gifts

August 20, 2009

Up till now I’ve been looking out for great photo gifts to give away, to grandparents and friends, for Christmas and birthdays. I’m sure your kids are really happy to help you pick out photos that Grandma and Grandad would love to have. Perhaps sometimes though, they secretly wish that they could keep some of the special pictures for themselves. After all, most kids love looking at pictures of themselves photographed with their Mom and Dad or with other special adults. A really great personalized way of using your digital photos to create special gifts for your kids is the Light Affection nightlight.

My kids still don’t like going to sleep in a dark room at night, even now the oldest is eleven. We leave doors open to a lighted hall, but they still have a night light on in their room. It makes them feel safe and secure. I love the idea of having a digital photo carved into a night light for a child’s room. The reassuring glow of the night light is made even more warm and calming as it shines through a gorgeous photo of your child having a lovely cuddle with you. You could use any happy image, but smiling familiar faces have to be the best cure for night time worries and fears.

Even if your kids don’t need a night light, these photo lights make great gifts for them or for anyone else in the family. Illuminate a dark corner with a table standing framed photo light displaying one of your best portraits of your kids. Older kids might like to have a shot of the whole family to stand on their desk, or a photo of themselves with a favorite pet.

An important thing to remember as our kids grow, is that they love looking at photos of themselves and their family, just as much as Grandma and Grandad do. So don’t just create gorgeous photo gifts for far-off family. Think about creating special things with your digital photos for your kids too. A young girl would love a handbag or tote personalized with photos of her dressed as a princess, or with pictures of her pets. Simple gifts like keyrings containing a photo of the whole family would also go down brilliantly with most children. Who cares that they don’t have their own keys yet, a key ring can be used for hundreds of things!

So keep photographing your kids. You are compiling a record of important memories for them as well as for yourself. The albums that you create with your photos over time will be just as precious to them and those framed family photos will become prized heirlooms one day.
