This is a perfect example how a tech tool can help you in choosing a Christmas gift. What is more original than a photo taken by the camera and afterwards revived on paper? You just need to go through your phone gallery and pick up the best photo that will become a true art.

Create digital photo albums of smaller size

For those friends and family members who prefer to have modern photos and not paintings,  maybe it is a better solution to make a photo album saved in a digital form. The file format that keeps text and images preserved is PDF. This file format is the most convenient for document printing and sharing and it keeps the text and images in its original form. However, if your photo album or a scrapbook is too large and thus hard to send via email, use PDF compress app to shrink the size of that PDF.

Make Christmas labels for your gifts

So, before you put away your desktop computer and go on a digital detox, don’t forget to go through Office templates and find your best Christmas card template.

Craft personalized ebooks

Besides using technology to make photo albums and paintings, to have your personalized Christmas cards and custom-made gift labels, your top loved ones maybe deserve even more effort and time spent on gift making. If you want to give someone a unique present, consider making a personalized book. While producing a real paper book can hurt your budget, for crafting an ebook you only need time, patience and a bit of creativity. This may be an ideal present for your life-long friends.
