From customizable photo ideas like puzzles, coasters, ornaments, to even blankets, t-shirts and calendars, Staples’ Print & Marketing Services offer a wide variety of ideas to add that special touch to all your holiday gifts. Here are some of my favourite gift ideas from


Make Your Memories Come to Life

Relive a fun holiday you shared, some old funny family photos, and all those classic holiday moments over and over by adding personalized photos to your holiday greeting cards. Nothing says the holidays quite like memories shared with friends and family. In just a few clicks you can create professional looking cards or holiday party invitations that are also personal. Simply upload your photos, a personalized message, and choose the quantity: it’s really that easy. And if you want to keep things REALLY simple, choose from hundreds of easy-to-use templates, and themes; you can design a card for any occasion this holiday season. All you need to do is add your personalized message.



It's All About The Details

Looking for inspiration for an extra-special table setting, or gift tag? Go the extra mile and consider a customized ornament. Whether given as a gift or added to an existing one, adding a personal touch in the details is sure to wow your friends, family or even your team at work.




Spread The Cheer All Year Long

Photo-filled calendars, mugs, personalized notebooks and stationery keep the joy of the holidays going all year round, and are practical to boot! Remind them that you care all year long, and be sure to browse the stationery section on for even more gift ideas.

Think Outside The Box

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box! When it comes to personalized gifts, the possibilities really are endless on! It’s such a useful tool for creating custom wow factor gifts for your friends and family right from the comfort of your own home or office.
