Who doesn’t love a photo gift for Christmas?  One of my best friends sent me a calendar for Christmas a couple of years ago, and she filled it with photos from our summers at camp.  It was one of the best (and funniest) gifts I’ve ever gotten.  It was full of memories from our favorite summers and it’s a gift I’ll never forget.  There are so many photo gifts available at Archiver’s Memory Lab – check out some of the favorites:

For the chef (or aspiring chef) in your life – a photo apron is the perfect gift! Use a photo from your favorite cooking adventures or maybe use one of great-grandma’s old recipes.

How fun is this! A puzzle with your favorite photo from a day at the amusement park, a wedding, a new baby, you name it! The possibilities are endless!

This cosmetic bag is so cute! Customize it with any photo and you’ll have the bag everyone is talking about.

You can never have to many decks of cards lying around, and these are bound to be the ones you’ll use the most.  The photos look great and the shuffle REALLY well!

The Memory Lab has TONS of photos gifts – check them out today.  Make sure you get your gifts in time for Christmas and order no later than November 29th. OR if you order by November 27th, you can use the COUPONS in this email:)

Looking for more inspiration? Have you checked out all of Archiver’s new boards on Pinterest:

Archiver’s has TONS of ideas for photo gifts, cards, calendars, home decor, photo decor…I could go on, but it’s probably more exciting to look at all of the awesome ideas than it is to read about it.  Click the picture above to check out Archiver’s 47 boards loaded with inspiration!

One of my favorite new boards is the Photo Decor board.  My husband and I are in the process of buying a house and I have been looking at home decor ideas like it’s my job.  There are so many ways to display photos and I love the shutter and pallet ideas featured in this board.

Archiver’s is THE place for inspiration this holiday season!

If you love the popular envelope punch board, you will LOVE the four new releases from We R Memory Keepers! All of these boards are still as simple as the original—just punch and score!

 Gift Box Punch Board

Create beautiful, square gift boxes in four different sizes: 4”, 3”, 2½”, and 1¾”. We’ve been testing patterned papers, glitter paper, cardstock—it all looks wonderful. Diagonally striped paper is stunning with perfectly mitered corners!


Gift Bag Punch Board

Use up to a 12×12 sheet of paper to create a bag any height bag you need! This board will create all the creases you need for a professional-looking gift bag. Then the top punch creates holes for adding your own ribbon closure or handles.


Pillow Box Punch Board

Create a pillow box in length your heart desires. This box punches score the perfect rounded flaps and also punches the inner flap notch for easy opening. Made wide enough for a gift card, your Christmas gifting and wrapping could be done in a few scores and punches!


Candy Box Punch Board

Create an adorable candy-shaped box with this punch board. The board creates a rectangular box in 1½” width and height and in any length you choose. We even switched it up to make a three-sided box instead of four! Perfect for dipped long pretzels, caramels and so much more.

All of these would make excellent containers for wedding and party favors, small gifts, candy treats, gift cards, jewelry gift boxes—the possibilities are limitless!
