Our Christmas Picks!


December is my second favorite month. All the lights, decorations, snow, hot chocolate, warm comfortable clothes... It just adds up to a very pleasant feeling. Of course, if you're rushing around stressing out over Christmas presents and money, pushing your way through mobs of other hurried people at the mall, it's hard to enjoy the season.

Although I sometimes enjoy going to the mall this time of year (I know, I'm CRAZY!) I prefer to spend my time and money at smaller, local shops. Which at first glace might sound a little, for lack of a better word, expensive... but it doesn't have to be! If you're looking for the perfect gift for the photo enthusiast in your family, or maybe just a nice photographic keepsake for grandma, we've got something to satisfy - no matter your budget. Here are some of our picks for the holiday season:

Erin's Pick: 10 Piece Magnetic Photo Frame Assortment - $12.99

This set of 4x6, 3.5x5 and 2x3 sized frames are perfect for a family kitchen. Stick 'em to the fridge, or any other metal surface. Instead of pictures and drawings flying off every time you open the door, you can have a quick and beautiful arrangement on your fridge. Easy to use, so you can change out your photos as the months pass! Print off a selection of photos as a bonus gift, for only $5 more. I know I want one!
