Sure, photographs are a great way to capture your life's most important moments. But these days, there are so many other options (and many don't even require a frame!) From a customized cutting board engraved with your wedding date to a mink throw blanket emblazoned with a photo of you on your first skydiving adventure, our personalized gifts shop is filled with creative ways to turn your favorite memories into one-of-a-kind custom keepsakes. Here are 12 of our favorites. As a bonus, they're all pretty affordable too!


Custom Photo Canvas

Turning your favorite memory into a gallery-worthy work of art is easy with websites such as Canvas on Demand. Just upload the photo, and a team of professionals will clean it up, print it on high-quality canvas, stretch it onto a sturdy wooden frame, and ship it directly to your door.


Custom Wall Calendar

Using your treasured photos to create a custom calendar is a great way to remember all the great memories you've made while also looking forward to a year of new ones.
