These days, while words can make an impact, it’s all about creating a lasting image on social media. From Instagram to Snapchat, we’re so busy clicking every occasion, meal and celebration, but whatever happened to a good old-fashioned picture? Sometimes the best gifts are sharing memories with our favorite people, and pictures are the perfect way to say you cherish the time spent with family and friends.
This year, while my family is exchanging big gifts, we’re also feeling sentimental and unwrapping unexpected small gifts like photos for the holidays.
What’s best is that you can conveniently grab a little something for loved ones from a store like Walgreens for under $30.
We love these ideas because the whole family can get involved in selecting the images and more!
