Amidst the thousands of images many of us now keep on our phones and ipads, there are always a few that are too good to leave lingering in a photo library. We love the idea of transforming our most memorable photographs into things we can see and use everyday. Here are a few of our favourite services – and we need hardly tell you that these all make brilliant gifts – just remember to order in advance.
Stickygram transforms your Instagram pics into real-life fridge magnets. It is really easy to use and as long as you have an Instagram account you are ready to go. Plus it is a bargain at around £10 for 9 personalised magnets, shipped free worldwide.
LikeMyCase allows you to personalise your phone cover with any photo of your choice. Using 3D print technology, the quality is better than most other companies doing this.
Anya Hindmarch’s “Be A Bag” transforms a treasured memory into beautiful, personalised bags and washbags. These bespoke accessories are a perfect gift for anyone who travels often, so they can keep their favourite photograph with them at all times.
Blurb prints beautiful hard and soft-cover books that you create yourself, by uploading images and text. The quality is outstanding and there are many different formats and options to choose from. The whole process is extremely straightforward. They also provide the option of “Instant Books” where you can transform all of your Facebook and Instagram photos into a physical album.
This personalised iPad case cover from Photobox is a clever ways to jazz up the iPad.
We love this over-sized canvas Polaroid-style print from Not on the Highstreet. Each canvas has space for a personalised caption. The canvases are made from 100% cotton and are £85 each.
