It’s no secret that the Cool Mom Picks team loves to find unique photo gifts for family, friends and teachers. While photo books are a great option for any price level, it’s actually affordable and easier than you think to create custom photo canvases too. Because, hey, Grandma’s walls could use a little love too. So we’re excited about the photo options at Picaboo for home decor.
You can easily upload your pictures to Picaboo’s site straight from your computer, Facebook, or Flickr. Then Picaboo offers two editing modes — Easy or Creative. As you’d imagine, the Creative mode offers more options, such as borders, shadows, or corners–though you might skip those. (They’re a little gimmicky; clip-art images that resemble photo corners or kids’ handprints.) In my opinion, less is more, especially if you have a great photo to work with in the first place.
Picaboo offers art canvases starting at $79..99 for 15 x 10 inches which is a great price for this quality printing. (And that’s before the huge limited time discount below.) For something even more affordable, Picaboo also offers photo panels, which are images printed on flat solid surfaces, without the depth and texture of the canvases. They start at just $19.99. And if you want something really inexpensive–an unexpected stocking stuffer, maybe?–check out their poster collages, which start at 10 x 8 for $4.99. Just add your own frame and make someone’s holiday.
