Clutter-Free Gift Giving – The Digital Frame

I’d love to share another idea with you for clutter-free and meaningful gift giving. A digital photo frame is a wonderful gift for a grandparent, a sibling, or even as a holiday tradition in your home. While a scrapbook makes a lovely gift, I’ve found that the digital frame is appreciated because it is easily viewed and shared. I’ve used ScanDigital (http://www.scandigital.com/) as a resource for scanning in my old photographs, but there are certainly some budget-friendly solutions such as using your home scanner.

Here are some suggestions on themes for your digital photo frame

• For a grandparent – the obvious choice would be photos of the grandkids. What about something unexpected? Create a storyline with your digital photo frame. Begin the story with photos of great or even great-great grandparents and work your way through the present. This would be a wonderful way for a grandparent to begin a history lesson with the grandkids.

• Do you have a cherished family recipe? What about a photo shoot of the family matriarch, patriarch or master chef preparing the food? You can send out the completed photo frame to family members along with written instructions.

• For a brother or sister who may live far away, you can create a photo gallery of special memories you’ve shared or past holidays together.

• For your own home, you can assemble a gallery of images from all your holiday moments. Include one or two photos from each year and you will have created a wonderful trip down memory lane for the entire family.

The possibilities are endless, creative, and inspiring. Whatever holiday you celebrate, it should be about family, tradition, and memories. A digital photo frame is a wonderful way to express the true meaning of the season.

  1. Great ideas Kristen. I never even thought of the brother/sister idea of sharing photos of past holidays as kids! She'll love it!The single largest problem I had with digital picture frames given to my family was the lack of being able to update it regularly. Found a great solution through TribeFrame. Lets you create albums of photos and videos and send directly to the frame instantly with no account fees!http://www.tribeframe.com is the link.

    Kristen – thanks for sharing this idea with your readers! We'd love to help anyone move those old photos into a digital format for a digital photo frame. We actually will even load them on a frame for you so your recipient simply needs to pull it out of the box and plug it in. Such a wonderful, sentimental gift.
