I'm always on the lookout for easy, custom gifts to give that are also useful. That is key and always seems to be the hardest aspect to gift giving. Two major things I look for when gift giving are 1) the thought behind it and 2) the usefulness.
I've given photo magnets to my friends and my boyfriend on several occasions. They are inexpensive and who doesn't want to look at photos of their friends every time they reach into the fridge? I ordered both sets of magnets from Social Print Studio. I've mentioned Social Print Studio in this previous post about photo strips!
The square magnets come in sets of 6 or 10 depending on which size you prefer (2"x2" or 3"x3") for $14-$15.
The round magnets come in a set of 15 for $12 (the magnets are 1"x1").
The shipping is a bit expensive but I think it's still worth cost, especially if you order a couple sets. I think this is great gift for a long distance friend(s) or family. I'm sure your mom or dad would love family photos on magnets for the fridge.
