We’re huge fans of Etsy and the amazing photo gifts their talented artists produce from digital photos. During the holidays our clients are not only digitizing their precious photos, slides & negatives but they’re also looking for the perfect way to show off the photos their family hasn’t seen in a very long time. We’ve put together a list of our 10 favorite photo gifts on Etsy and most of them are still taking Christmas orders!
