Give the Gift of Personalization

This past year has been unprecedented, with too many weeks and months spent separated from our loved ones. To get us a little bit closer, why not consider sending a personalized gift this year. If you can't be there in real life, at least your picture can! With Staples SolutionShop, you can add your favourite selfie or a family photo to almost anything and remind your loved ones every day how much you care. Here are our top 6 picks!

Photo Books

Chronicle your times with loved ones in a personalized photo book. Design app Canva has partnered with the Staples SolutionShop to offer professional quality photo books. Available in two sizes (7x9 and 9x12) either soft or hard cover, you can use the available templates and add your own pages, to tell the story of togetherness. When you’re finished with the layout, click checkout and wait for your masterpiece to arrive.

Holiday Cards

Personalized photo cards for the holidays, including Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaaa and others, are perfect for 2020. The cards are photo and illustration-based and they can either be folded or flat, announcement cards. You can upload your own design or use a pre-existing template to send heartfelt messages near and far.



Looking to stick around beyond the holidays? Using a collection of photos, create a calendar! Choose from existing backgrounds, start the calendar whenever you want (January, school year, etc.), and add holidays and custom dates like birthdays and graduations. You can even add photos into the date grid on any date you choose to make those significant dates even more memorable.



Fun to personalize, and fun to piece together, unique photo puzzles are available in 30, 110 or 520 pieces, either portrait of landscape. It’s as simple as choosing the specifics, uploading a photo to SolutionShop and waiting for it to arrive!



Available in multiple sizes (11oz and 15oz) and types, sharing a cup of tea or coffee in the morning with your bff this way, is the next best thing to being there. The SolutionShop will upload single, or multiple images on latte mugs, travel mugs, even magic photo mugs where the image appears only once a hot beverage is poured inside. Bottoms up!

Personalized mugs


This year personalize festive ornaments that will warm hearts for years to come. They are available in four different shapes (round, oval, elegant and snowflake) and are made of coated aluminum. A ribbon is included for hanging.
