As Christmas approaches, it can be pretty tricky to figure out what gifts you should get for the men in your life. Photo gifts are easily customisable and make for great presents for all your friends and family. Read on for more tips on what you should get your dads, brothers, and boyfriends.

Keep it simple with wall art for dad

Keep your dad’s gift fuss-free with a piece of wall art for his space. It’ll make a great centrepiece in his office, or he can hang it right above his spot in the living room. Confused on which photo to pick or what material to choose? You can check out our blog on creating the best wall art for your house. Pro tip: try to match the material of your wall art with the photos you’re using. Canvas, for example, adds to the warm and cosy feel of family pics and nature snaps. For something more polished and contemporary, aluminium might suit better.

If wall art isn’t his cup of tea, you can never go wrong with a personalised mug for his favourite drink. Still thinking of what to put on the mug? Go with tried-and-true classics like “World’s Best Dad” or put your own spin on it with dad jokes or fun pictures of the family.

A cute photo book for the boyfriend

When it comes to boyfriends, it can be tricky to pick one gift from so many options. This Christmas, why not make a photo book? You can design it around a theme, like pictures of your pet or all the fun you’ve had together. Once you have your photos, a pre-designed photo book makes the process simple and leaves you with a professionally designed result. You can also try making a photo book based on his hobbies – if he likes to cook, he’ll be delighted to receive a cookbook based on his favourite dishes. Need more inspiration?

Create a storybook for your son

The sky’s the limit when it comes to your son’s creativity. Celebrate it with a photo book that’s all about their favourite topic. Why not turn your son into the hero of his very own storybook? With our selection of pre-designed templates, he can be a superhero, a dinosaur expert, or even an astronaut.

You can create your own storyline with the design you’ve picked and the photos you’ve added. On top of that, there’s a huge variety of frames, clip art, and even speech bubbles to choose from. He’ll love this unique spin on his bedtime stories.

Share your memories in print with granddad

With most of our photos being digital today, there’s something special about photos that you can hold in your hands. If your kids have no idea on what to gift granddad this year, prints are a fun way to share what you’ve been up to with him. If you’re editing your prints on our mobile app, you can even get them in these retro-style borders that’ll remind of instant snaps. Either way, he’ll be able to hang his favourites on the fridge or carry them with him wherever he goes.

A planner for a brother

Calendars make simple and practical gifts that are great year-round, making it perfect to give to your brother. It’ll help him stay on top of his schedule with all his best photos. And as with all of our photo products, you can fully customise the planner you create. It’ll be a nice and personal touch to already add in some of your special family events and birthdays in for him.

Make a mug for a work mate

Classic gifts sometimes make the best ones. If you’ve got a buddy at work you’re thinking of getting a present for, a personalised mug is a great, low-key gift. You can add in photos and inside jokes with our text editor, or one of your favourite motivational quotes. This thoughtful gift is one of our best sellers — everyone loves receiving one. So whether you’re going for a hearty laugh or a warm smile, a mug is always a nice and personal gift idea.
