Looking for a unique gift that you can order online and pick-up in-person? Maybe it’s time to actually print those gorgeous Instagrams you’ve been snapping. They make stunning personalized holiday gifts, and the best part is you’ve already done most of the legwork by cropping and filtering so why not get those cards, mugs, photobooks, water bottles or stocking (yes you hear that right!) done in time for Christmas? You know which ones are the keepers, so send them off to the London Drugs Photolab.
Here are a few ideas to get you started, and the best part is that they’re things you can create inexpensively and have them ready before you can say ho-ho-holidays.
