Personalized memory game


Pinhole Press, my friends' company which makes beautiful photo gifts, just came out with a personalized memory game! It's really easy to make: You just choose 12 favorite photos (of friends, family, pets, vacations, whatever you'd like), and Pinhole puts them on thick cards with graphic backgrounds. I'm looking forward to playing it with our family over the holidays. Wouldn't it make a wonderful gift?

Memory used to be my favorite as a kid. I think I will order a couple of these for the little ones in my family.

I got this as a x-mas present from my sister the year that we got married (almost 12 1/2 years ago already!). It's so cute! And also makes nice tiny wall/shelve decoration.

love the concept, hate the prominently featured logo on every card, especially if these are intended for children.

This is a great gift for kids, yes - but I think it's an even better gift for those suffering with Alzheimer's. I'll be ordering these as a Christmas for my husband's grandmother; 12 cards are just the perfect amount for each of her children and grandchildren.

Ginger said...

Beautiful. I need more options for rescuing old pics from photo album obscurity.

Stella said...

I really love this!! Great gift.

I love these so much… except for the pinhole press name on the back of the cards. Wish they could have done something more subtle. But they look great otherwise. I may get some for my nieces.

♥♥♥♥personalized photo gifts is AMAZING. personalized photo gifts service rocks - easy to communicate with you & fast responses. Shipment via overnight far exceeded my expectations. You were there to follow through to my satisfaction. There are few businesses out there who operate the way you do. I work for a luxury retailer and think we've got the service thing down; but you've totally got personalized photo gifts beat!! Keep doing what you're doing. I will always recommend you, choose your business first & tell everyone I know about personalized photo gifts.♥♥♥♥
