I’m not stressing about gift giving this holiday season.
What makes this year different you ask?
I am working with Walmart Photo to create the perfect gift for the holidays.
In the past buying gifts for my dad has always been so stressful because he really has everything he wants and needs. He lives in California and we don’t get to see each other often. The truth is he has never met my children even though my oldest is 23 years old. I’ve also noticed for some reason as our parents get older that it seems like they are harder and harder to buy for during the holidays. I’ve been working on my list and when Walmart Photo reached out in regards to their product line I found the answer I had been searching for, a personal wall calendar featuring my family. So, no more stressing thanks to Walmart for the opportunity to try out the services!
Putting the calendar together for my dad was fun. I got to spend time with the kids looking through old digital images, scanning old photographs, and picking our favorites for the calendar. It was truly a labor of love because we wanted him to feel like he was experiencing some of our favorite moments from our life together. The online builder allows you to easily grab images from Facebook, FlickR, Instagram and other storage on Walmart Photo. If you choose to do it in-store, you can transfer images from your smartphone using the Fujifilm Kiosk Photo Transfer App or it you rather connect the cable at the kiosk you can do that was well.
The end product was exactly what we had hoped for and many of the gifts offered by Walmart Photo are available for same day pick-up. You can choose from over 3,500 locations nationwide or order online at Walmart Photo like we did. Since they offer same day pick-up on many items, I know I’ll be using their service for all my last minute gift giving such as canvas prints and similar items. I’m always forgetting someone.
Anyway, after discovering how easy this is to create, order, and pick up I have decided to use these calendars for everyone in my family as their name tag on their stockings this year. The cover of each calendar will feature a baby photo of the person, and for each month I’m going to find a photo of them that corresponds with the month. I think this will be a fun way to spend the morning when we open our stockings Christmas Day. You could also do this for “gift tags” for your favorite person’s holiday gift. The ideas are limitless and even better, Photo Calendars are on Rollback for just $10 through 1/3!

About the Walmart Photo Calendar we created:
There were so many templates to choose from that we had a hard time picking one but we finally agreed on the 8×11, 12 Month Photo Calendar with the Simply Elegant background for $10.00.
