I can’t believe it’s already the time of year to start thinking about holiday gift giving. I try to get started buying gifts each October to ease the financial and mental stress. I’m happy to report that I’ve already gotten a good start, yay! Do you need some holiday gift ideas? Well, I have some great ones from Mpix.

I’ve taken quite a few photos over the last year, and I decided to use some of them to create some unique and fun gifts for Vivienne’s grandparents.

I’m starting with my very favorite items—these amazingly fun and cool photo statuettes.

How cool are these things?? They really fun up any surface in your home or office. I got an extra one for myself for my home office, and every time I look at it I smile. Can you guess which one I got a duplicate of? 🙂

Here’s a view from the side so you can see how thick they are. The statuettes are printed on an E-Surface paper and mounted to 1/8” Masonite on a small black acrylic base, so they’re very sturdy.

The best part is they’re super affordable and come in different sizes. The 5×7 size, which is what I ordered, is only $16, and the 8×10 is $36. So much bang for your buck if you ask me. I just can’t say enough good things about these.

Next up is this very high quality framed prints.

First of all let me say that Mpix’s photo print quality is absolutely unmatched. Many of my professional photographer friends swear by them, and I can see why.

There are 16 wood frame finishes to choose from, and you get your our choice of three professional quality photographic papers. You can also select from different mounting and mat options (as well as display styles that include glass, no glass and non-glare glass).

Sizes range from 3.5×5 to 20×30. I picked a 4×4 frame for mine. It’s the perfect size, and it was only $19.

And lastly I just had to order a couple cute custom ornaments.

These ornaments start at just $10. There are a ton of designs to choose from, and all you have to do is upload your favorite photo, and you’re done. They make great stocking stuffers!

What do you think? See anything that you might want to order for yourself or for holiday gifts? There are so many good options to choose from.

If anyone orders a statuette you have to take a photo and tag me on Instagram.  🙂
