Figuring out what to gift family members for the holidays can often feel like yet another chore on your (growing) to-do list. But you’re in luck! As a parent, you’re sitting on the best gift of all—your baby’s adorable face!

Custom photo gifts are fun to make and even more fun to give. They’re also a great way to use the hundreds (thousands?) of snaps you take all year long on your phone. And the best part? Proud grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and everyone else will love staring at your little one’s face all year round just as much as you do. Here are 12 ideas for custom photo gifts to show off your little one that your family will cherish.

Bragging Rights

With a name like “brag book” it’s like this photo book was made with proud relatives in mind. (We’re looking at you, grandma.) This accordion photo book is small enough to fit in your pocket and unfolds to reveal eight of your most favorite photos. We can already picture the grandparents whipping it out to show the mail carrier, the neighbors, the guy at the coffee shop and whoever else is lucky enough to cross their path.

Love All Year Long

A photo calendar filled with months and months of your little one’s adorable face? Sign us up. Photo calendars are easy to make, fun to gift and really affordable. We’ve never met a family member who didn’t love staring at pics of their favorite baby or toddler all year long.

Unique Keepsake

What’s better than one photo of your baby? Lots of photos that come together to make one giant photo, of course! This unique keepsake showcases 30 of your best photos into one gorgeous collage print. It comes in six different print sizes and can be ordered unframed or framed and ready for the wall right out of the box.

Face Time

Question: could your baby’s face on a sticker be any cuter? Answer: nope! These custom photo face stickers are easy to make and really fun to give. They’re also really budget-friendly. Give them as a gift all on their own or stick one on grandma’s fridge, your holiday card envelopes or wherever else you need a little dose of fun and cuteness.

Get Creative

Get your creative juices flowing and create a custom phone case filled with pictures of your little one that your family will love. There are tons of options here, from a single photo to an abstract collage, and a size to fit every type of smartphone. If you’re feeling extra creative there’s also options to create custom Apple Watch bands, laptop covers and so much more.

A Fun Way to Freeze Time

These custom photo statuettes are a whimsical and unique way to freeze a favorite moment in time for all to see. There are two sizes (five by seven inches or eight by ten) and each statuette is mounted on a thin piece of engineered wood atop a black acrylic base. We can already picture how cute one will look on grandma’s desk.

Mask Up

Nothing says 2020 quite like a custom face mask. Vistaprint lets you upload your own photo to put on their breathable, comfortable face masks so you can show off your favorite face and protect yourself and others from covid. The masks are easy to make and available in both adult and kid sizes.

Heirloom-Quality Classic

Despite its name, there’s nothing “everyday” about this beautiful photo book. It’s made with premium fabric binding, custom foil stamping and extra-thick pages. It’s a gorgeous way to showcase your favorite photos from the year and a gift your family will surely treasure.

Wall Art Made Easy

Mixtiles make showcasing your favorite photos super easy. These self-adhesive eight by eight inch squares are removable, reusable and leave no marks behind if you change your mind; simply stick them to a wall and move them again and again (and again and again) until you find just the right look.

Tote(ally) Fun

You can never have too many tote bags. This custom option takes the tote bag to the next level, showing off your favorite photos of your favorite littles. They’ll instantly bring a smile to the face of anyone you gift them to and will also likely get a ton of use.

Keeping it Reel

Anyone who lived through the 1980s will smile the moment they lay eyes on this one-of-a-kind gift. A grown-up version of a reel viewer, we can’t think of a more fun way to display your favorite moments. Just keep in mind to reserve some extra time if you’re thinking of gifting this as you’ll first need to order the viewer and then use the redemption code that’s included to order your custom reel.

The Perfect Fit

Lots of people are spending more time at home these days. Help them pass the day with this custom photo puzzle, available in 252 or 500 pieces. You can personalize it with a photo of your little one(s) or with a pic of the whole fam.
