Flaunting pictures of your kid is totally normal. We all do it—in frames, on Facebook, as iPad wallpaper. But that doesn’t mean we want a cabinet full of cheesy photo mugs. Here’s what we’d like (hint, hint) if someone were buying us a photo gift.
We’re obsessed with Anya Hindmarch’s vintage-looking photo totes (pictured, from £195) and washbags (from £115). Cocktail napkins look chic in this orange holder (especially with a black and white photo) from Tara Wilson designs. We dig her Lucite photo trays (from $98), as well. A photo becomes fine art (well, almost) when it’s printed on a CanvasWorld custom canvas (from $36). Tiny Prints will put photos on just about anything; our favorites are this cheery “hello” iPhone case ($39.95) and the Erin Condren-designed day planners (from $60). We’re also fans of Condren’s clear storage boxes ($75). Choosing one favorite photo can be tough, which is why Pinhole Press’s elegant boxed set of 24 different prints ($49.99), with a caption on the back of each, is a sweet gift. Pinhole’s lemonade bottle labels ($9.99 for a nine-pack) and coasters ($24.99 for a 24-pack) are adorable, too.
