Any ideas for photo based gifts for my photo obsessed MIL? Previous biggest success were cushions with the DCs faces on. Not my sort of thing and was originally a bit of a joke but she loved them so looking for anything really something a bit different to just a picture in a frame. Thanks

FIL gets a mug with the DC on every Christmas. It was a one off at first but he is not subtle about requesting the next.

I use Truprint (er, I think) as there are usually codes from late November. I upload about a dozen nice photos of the DC from through the year and use the collage function.

Jigsaw? Does she do any crafting? I've seen knitting bags with photos printed on that I'm tempted to get for MIL. Calendar is always a good one. They can basically put photos on pretty much anything now!

Should say though that the coasters were a huge hit. Might do those this year instead or as well, depending on other inspiration or lack thereof.

What about a photo book of your DC last year. If you download the free prints app you can get a photo book for just p&p

Coasters sounds like a good idea! Any recommendations as to where to get them from? Truprint or somewhere else?

Ours will have been Truprint. Still as good as new after six years of daily use.

BagsOfLove have the widest selection, I think eg. blanket, biscuit tin, hot water bottle, even your own fabric to do whatever with!

Calendars are always a big hit with our family with themed pics for each of the different months.

Other ideas:
Xmas tree bauble
Photo books
Naice key ring

I do a calendar every year for the grandparents, I use vistaprint there always seems to be a code for 50% off calendars. In fact the code VP2011 is valid until the 20/11.
