I find it very difficult to buy presents for my parents. But you know who it’s even more difficult to buy gifts for? My grandparents! I love my grandparents dearly, but they are so frustrating when it comes to shopping. They have everything they need.
I know that many of you are running into the same problem this holiday season, so I have a great suggestion for you: DIY photo gifts. Anything personalized is something that the grandparents are sure to love – especially when it comes to children’s photos!
So grab your craft supplies, as well as your HP wireless printer and your smart phone. With a few touches, you can send your favorite photos directly to your printer from your phone.
You can also resize images directly from the phone, depending on what gift you are making.
I’ve put together a collection of eight photo gifts that your grandparents (or your children’s grandparents) are sure to love. All of these are relatively easy, and pretty much guaranteed to be a hit.
