The next time someone’s birthday or anniversary is coming up, and you’re fresh out of gift ideas, look no further than your digital camera.
Although many of us print the photos we take with our digital cameras or share them on the web, they can also be used to create highly personalized photo gifts for friends and family. These gifts range from cheap and tacky to expensive and sentimental. Didn’t buy a wedding present, but took a lot of digital photos at a friend’s wedding? Make them a photobook! For around $40-50 you can put together a hard-bound album, complete with funny captions, for a little more you can get it leather bound too, and it only takes a couple of weeks – so they’ll get it a lot faster than their photographer’s album.
