Getting Personal with LDPhotolab (and a giveaway)

Getting Personal with LDPhotolab (and a giveaway)

Here we are again – the holiday season! Time to put the lights up, decorate the tree, get started on all that yummy holiday baking, and get to work on picking out the perfect gifts for all those special people on your list. I love the decorating and the baking and all of the things that make this season so special. I also love the gift giving. I really do. But sometimes it can be so difficult to find just the perfect thing for everyone. I think the easiest person on my list is my 8 year old daughter. She’s got a list a mile long. And while she certainly doesn’t expect to get everything on her list it sure is nice to have options! But what to do about the other people on my list? The aunts and uncles, the inlaws that already have everything they need and want? Those are the tricky ones to buy for. How many times can you get away with giving socks and chocolates (asking for a friend)?

Make it Personal with LDPhotolab Gifts

So, you’ve got a budget. You’ve got a list of people you want to give gifts to. And you only have so much time to get everything done. This can make things tricky, Because you don’t to “phone it in”. You want the people you care about to know that you put thought into their gifts. You want it to be personal. And that’s where LDPhotolab gifts come in! There are SO many options available that I know you can find that perfect special gift for the equally as special people on your list. Holiday cards, key chains, tree ornaments, blankets – you name it you will find it! And, not only is the selection of photo gifts impressive, but the quality is too. If you are in the habit of having photos printed you probably already know  that the LDPhotolab produces high quality prints (at really reasonable prices) and you can expect the same kind of quality when you order photo gifts as well. I know, even when I order at the last minute (which sometimes happens) I never have to hold my breath and hope they turn out. I am always thrilled with the prints and gifts I’ve ordered!

Ok, so I know the days are getting away on us here so it’s time to get serious and get your orders in. I know you have lots of pictures! Pictures of your kids, your pets, your family vacations. Pictures that deserve to be seen and shared! And there are so many unique photo gifts available the hard part is going to be deciding which ones to order! Let’s take a look at some of your options!

Photo Christmas Stockings – Order by December 16

We were just hanging our stockings tonight actually and trying to remember which ones belonged to who. These photo stockings would take the mystery out of that!
