Transform your digital vacation photos into perfectly personal souvenirs.
A sleek, dark-wood jewelry box gets personal when you top it with your favorite photo on a ceramic tile. The inside features a removable tray with three jewelry compartments and ring storage. This chic container is a far cry from the homemade hand trap you constructed every Mother’s Day in kindergarten, though it’s every bit as personal. $70 at photoworks.com.
Who says you have to be famous to be on a stamp? Give the mailman a treat by plastering your own face all over a set of custom stamps. Drop your photos and text onto blank stamp templates, and the resulting stamps work as legal U.S. postage. Set of 20 stamps, $18 at zazzle.com.
Turning your favorite photos into a set of notecards is as easy as uploading and cropping them. The cards can be customized with up to six lines of text, and they include envelopes—so you can send them out to friends who still use snail mail. Set of 16 cards, $25 at moo.com.
