Holiday Shopping Already!!?? — ’tis the season for some really cool gifts (more added weekly)

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are approaching faster than Santa’s sleigh!  Pretty soon, the stress of gift buying will begin to kick in.  Sure, there are some things that need to be bought in a store, but embrace the online World, and you’ve jumped into a whole new realm of gifts.  If you are like me, you have an entire year’s worth of pictures on your smartphone.  What do you do with them?  Turn them into gifts of course, but not just a framed photo – that’s as boring as a tie on Father’s Day.  Below are some really cool websites for original picture gift ideas for friends, family and yourself – go ahead, you deserve it (especially once the shopping is done!)


If you can’t find something for someone who has everything on this site, give up!  From $0.99 to over $1,000,000 (seriously) you are sure to find something for everyone and every budget.  A few things are distasteful on this site, but fun none the less…


This is just plain original artistry at its best!  Customize any name or word with letters from nature — real pictures, not fonts!  Plus, there is a current Groupon circulating for a discount!

Frame The Alphabet creates custom, personalized framed art using one of a kind objects found in their natural environment. The Frame the Alphabet idea and business was born out of a mix between the creative vision of the artist “Crystal” & the business ideas of “Lee”. Together, Frame the Alphabet was born and has exploded into a reality of Crystal’s childhood dreams to work in photography! All Frame the Alphabet products are built/created in East Tennessee.
