I’m a huge Instagram fan, and my end-of-day review of my instagram stream is such a lovely way to peek in on my friends and their families. I love the silly, slightly out of focus ones that come with a mess on the floor the most, because unlike traditional staged photos, it’s real life all the way. I also love taking Instagram photos myself and sharing bits of my world with my friends as well.
We’re not alone over 150 million folks use Instagram these days. What better way to take your Instagram photos to the next level than to print your photos on gifts for family, friends, or heck yourself? Here are 15 awesome ways to print your Instagrams.
Brilliant Gift Ideas for Your Instagram Photos 1 of 8
Now all those pretty shots finally have a place to go...
Big Stickers! 2 of 8
While I'm not a huge fan of stickers in this house (good GOD the things my daughter has put stickers on), I can see how these would be beloved by kids and teens. I have to confess I wouldn't mind using a few on my laptop! These stickers are 4 "x 4", and are fully removable (phew). Starts at just over $20 for ten stickers.
From Artflakes. From $20 - $63.
Ceramic Coasters 3 of 8
Well, I'm not sure I'd use a wedding photo as a coaster (I don't like putting glasses on faces, I'm weird that way), although I could see how it would be a nice gift. Of course I've been married longer than the founder of Instagram has been out of diapers, so I'd probably use some of my nature shots instead. But these are definitely fun, and for less than $10 for four coasters, you can't go wrong although you crafty folks might want to do them yourself!

Cell Phone Case 4 of 8
Of COURSE you can use your Instagrams to make a cell phone case. Naturally. And starting at less than $10 a case, I think I might make one of these for my mother as well since she got an iPhone 4S this year. Which I'm still shocked about. Best of all? You can get gift certificates as well perfect for those hard-to-buy teenagers of relatives.

Photo Books 5 of 8
I've been a huge fan of Blurb for years, and I deeply treasure the photo book my best friend made me of my daughter's first year in photos. You can't go wrong with these fabulous 7" by 7" photo books that start at less than $20. Dang it, now I want to get THIS for my mom too.
From Blurb, from $18.99.

Postcards 8 of 8
Enjoy sending postcards when you travel, but are tired of buying boring stock versions? Take snapshots with your phone and digitally send a postcard yes, by traditional snail mail to family and friends while on the road! And it doesn't have to just be Instagram, you can use any photos including Facebook images. Love this idea. For less than a buck!
