9 Brilliant Things To Do With Your Photos

Our favorite gifts for Mother's and Father's Day

Anya Keepsake Box

Pictures of the kids make great gifts for those who love them. Especially when they're artfully displayed on the items we use every day. Here, nine of our favorite photo gifts for the grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, husbands, and wives you plan to honor on Mother's Day and Father's Day.

With three or four snapshots displayed photo-booth style, the Filmstrip Listpad ($12.99) from Pinhole Press makes for an awesome grocery or to-do list. Similar in spirit, Tiny Prints sells a Count My Blessings notepad ($16.99) that would look beyond sweet with a picture of the grandkids.

Though phone cases are an obvious choice, we dig the Photo Booth-style ones (from $40) by Custom Case—and appreciate that they'll make one to fit just about every phone and tablet on the market. Photo calendars are the other cliché, but the Wood Clipboard Calendar ($28.99) from Artifact Uprising feels very special.

Shutterfly offers more photo gifts than just about anyone, but we especially love their reusable shopping bags (genius!) and new luggage tags. Ditto on Minted's Heart Snapshot Mix (from $29 for an 8x8" collage) and Erin Condren's acrylic photo tray ($119).

On the more fanciful end of things, Romero Designs' photo zipper pull ($145) would look SO cute on a lululemon hoodie; their photo cuff links ($275) are a crowd-pleaser, too. And finally, we are downright obsessed with Anya Hindmarch's Bespoke Secret Photo Keepsake Boxes, which you can personalize with an embossed message (in your own handwriting) and photo; starting at £230.
