One-of-a-Kind Gifts

Looking for something unique to give this holiday season? Why not turn some of your favorite digital photos into personalized gifts? Many online photo services have branched out with stylish and unusual offerings, from fashion accessories to coasters to scrapbooks—and even personalized stamps. Here’s a sampling:

Photo Handbag ImageStation.com offers some of the most fashionable photo bags we’ve seen. Trimmed in leather with full-image panels on the front and the back, they’re sure to get noticed ($135).

Snapbooks Most photo sites offer hardbound photo books. But for a more casual—and less expensive—option, check out Shutterfly.com’s Snapbooks. These small spiral-bound books feature one photo per page and an optional caption ($10 for a 20-page book of 4-by-6-inch prints).

Metal Trivet Know someone who likes to cook? PhotoAccess.com and Snapfish.com both offer to put your favorite photo on a cast-iron trivet—which can serve as a hot pad or a wall decoration.
