How to turn your favourite photos into personalised gifts they’ll treasure this Christmas

If you're looking for a really personal gift for someone special this Christmas, why not turn their favourite pictures and memories into something they can keep forever?

With the Asda Photo service, you can put your face - or someone else's - on almost anything. From personalised photobooks and phone cases to customised 2017 calendars and stationery, there's something for everyone. 

Grandparents, for example, will absolutely love a calendar customised with pictures of their grandkids that they can hang on their wall and cushions personalised with a picture of the family cat or dog make great presents for younger children. 

It's a simple way to capture those picture-perfect moments and create a totally unique present at the same time. 

Here are just some of the products available for you to add your own personal finishing touch to. 


If you've got a whole group of friends to buy for, why not make a group 2017 calendar and simply order enough copies for everyone? You can use a different photo for each month, so you'll have loads of fun selecting who's going to be Mr February and who gets to be Mrs June! 

Or, you could create a family calendar that looks ahead to 2017, by including photos to inspire your summer holidays and adding in important family celebrations. 


Customise a make-up bag or beach bag with someone's favourite photo and they'll carry those memories with them everywhere they go. 


If 2016 was a particularly memorable year for someone you know - maybe they celebrated a milestone birthday or welcomed a new addition to the family - commemorate it with a personalised photobook.

It's so rare that people print their own pictures anymore, they'll love having something to flick through that will remind them of all the fun times they've had this year.

Bunting and banners

If you're having a big family celebration for Christmas, why not deck the halls with your own family bunting and banners? Everyone will certainly know they've arrived at the right house! 

Phone cases

Customised phone cases make great stocking fillers for younger family members. 

Christmas wrapping and baubles

For a fun and festive added touch, you could always get a family photo printed on your wrapping paper and baubles

We also like the idea of getting your own face printed on lots of baubles, hanging them on friends' Christmas trees and seeing how long it takes them to spot you!
