Do you need a unique gift for a flower lover or gardening aficionado? You can easily create custom items using your own photos of beloved flowers and plants. Whether it’s a bloom in your own garden or a picture taken during a trip or special occasion, these photo creations allow you to give a gift that will stay beautiful long after a fresh flower would have faded.
There are dozens of websites that allow you to make custom photo items. Some sites store all of your photos at no charge. Other websites allow you to upload just the photos you need for your project. There are hundreds of photo gifts to choose from, allowing you to showcase both your photography and your gardening skills.
Greeting cards are a common choice for custom photo items. There are cards available for any type of celebration or holiday. Use photos of blooms from your garden to say “thank you” or “I’m thinking of you”. Or create a set of floral note cards to give as a gift. Accompanied by some stamps and a nice pen set, this will make a thoughtful present for someone who enjoys hand-writing letters.
Also made with custom photos, one of a kind keepsake boxes can be used to store treasured trinkets or jewelry. Create a box using a photo of a loved one’s favorite flower and fill the box with the same type of dried flowers or homemade potpourri.
Custom dishes (paper or melamine) and napkins are a fun way to use your own floral photos as festive party decor. These tabletop items often include custom text for a birthday, anniversary or graduation. Use photos of the guest of honor’s favorite flowers, along with fresh bunches of the same flowers to complete the party’s theme.
Photo pillows and blankets are a popular gift because the recipient can use them every day. Fleece, quilted, or woven fabrics are printed with the photos of your choice. Try creating a winter theme by photographing evergreens, pine cones and holly berries. You can make a thoughtful gift that will keep someone cozy all winter long.
For a gift that will be used year-round, create a custom photo calendar. Show off the highlights of your garden through every season. From cheerful daffodils in the spring to sparkling snow-covered branches in the winter, there are countless opportunities to share nature’s beauty throughout the year.
Someone special to you will certainly appreciate receiving an uncommon, personalized gift. And there are custom photo items suitable for absolutely every occasion. By creating gifts using your own pictures of special flowers, you can give blooms in a way that will never wilt or fade.
