This year since we will not be with my parents they just asked for something simple and something that contains pictures. Since they are only able to visit with the kids 1-2 times per year they are always asking for recent pictures. Thanks to digital photography we have been able to share photos almost instantly with them. We are going to be creating a 12 month calendar of the kids and sending that out to Grandma and Grandpa so that they have them available all throughout the year. We are also going to be looking through the shoe box and possibly looking at getting some photo scanning on the older photos to add to the calendar. Online sites like Snapfish.com is a great tool to upload your photos and create those memory books. You can find a snapfish coupon that can save you a few bucks on your order.
Keeping in the digital theme we are going to be sending out Photo Cards in custom photo mailers to our friends and family to keep them up to date on how we are doing in our new location. The great thing about photo cards from vendors where you can upload your favorite print and customize the card in minutes. So this year do something a little more personable and send out a photo holiday card to your friends and family. I have personally used Snapfish for same family calendars and holiday cards and they are easy to use. You can even create special photo albums and share them with your family members and then they can have photos printed if they wish. Send them a snapfish coupon code and help them save a few dollars either with free shipping or get a upgraded memory book for less. The holiday season is fast approaching and now would a be a great time to start uploading your photos and creating your own family calendar or postcard to send to friends and family.
