I can’t think of a better gift that’s cherished year-round by grandparents other than photos of their sweet grandchildren. Last year, I created a “book of Calvin” filled with my favorite photos of my son. We printed copies for each of his grandparents and great grandparents. We’ve also purchased multiple photo frames including a collage of several specially-selected photos.
This year, for personalized Christmas cards, I took photos of Calvin posing with individual alphabetized letters.
Like this one…
I’m going to group them together so that combined, the letters will read, Merry Christmas. I actually took all the photos for this personalized Christmas card last month. I remembered every letter except for “A”–and I’ve kinda put off another photo session since taking one photo usually becomes a bit of a struggle and lasts 30 minutes or more.
Seriously, I don’t understand how children’s photographers do what they do. Gifted folks, I tell ya!
Anyway, it’s tough to get grandparents anything since they almost always already have everything they could possibly need or want, except precious photos of the little ones so precious to them.
Point. Shoot. Print/Develop. Frame. Wrap.
If you are simply not into the photography thing, find someone who is…it’s so worth it to capture your little ones on film before they grow older by leaps and bounds a mere 5 minutes later.
