We hope your partner is also preparing something very special for you!
If you’re looking for birthday gifts that include photos or are made from photos, you’ve come to the right place, we’ve already shown you our Top 7 best photo giftswhich are also cheap gifts because most of them are with crafts and DIY:
7. Photo album or ScrapBook designed by you
Are you wondering what is so original about this? Maybe giving an album with photographs that are a nice reminder of the relationship doesn’t seem like something very original, but it certainly is a memory that never fails.
Especially for the fact that no one has photos in physical format anymoreso those that are printed or materialized in an album, take on a special weight and importance.
The originality of the album lies in the format you choose and the photos included in it, as well as other accessories such as stickers, notes and other memorabilia.
It is not the same to buy a photo album at a bazaar and print or develop photos all the same size and without a theme or thread, than, for example, to make a scrapbook reusing a CD holder:
Another original format of the photo album is to make it in format pop up box with photos joined in an accordion.
In this example the photos are photo booth type, but you can put any other:
Do you need: square wooden box, photos, tape, glue.
Instructions: choose the photos you like the most and give them the same format (square if possible). You can use the online software tool Pixlr or Picmonkey. Then take a large white cardboard and cut it to the width of the inside of the box and the length 5 times greater than the height. Fold it in a zigzag pattern. Then stick each of the photos in the center of each of the 5 parts as you see in the image and stick a tape on the back of the first photo.
6. Whatsapp book
If the idea of a photo album or Scrapbooking doesn’t quite convince you, we have another alternative for giving away a book full of memories, either digital (in pdf format) or in printed format.
For him we propose to give you a Whatsapp book. Yes, that’s it: a book with a printed WhatsApp chat view. With all the messages, photos, emojis, voice messages and videos (which you can see from a QR code). From the first “Hello” to the first date, the first kiss with the heart, the first “I love you”…
You can include and edit the messages you want, photos, and also audio messages and videos via a QR to scan and play from a smartphone or tablet.

5. Collage of your photos forming a message
This idea may seem very simple, but oh well because the execution is not so easy (for which we give you some tips below). The result, yes, is a super result:
4. Calendar with memories of the previous year
This idea is especially good for celebrating a first birthday.
You can design a calendar to hang, and to illustrate each of the 12 months, put a photo, or a meaningful photo collage of what you did together this month, of the most memorable moments.
Also, in the calendar part, mark the indicated dates. For example:
- Your respective birthdays
- View next scheduled holidays
- The date of the anniversary of the day you met, at first sight, kiss and when you officially started dating. Even at first sight quarrel and reconciliation.
- A reminder of important events that will happen in the previous year. For example: in the boxes from September 5 to 15, mark “TRAVEL TO MENORCA” if you were there for those dates last year.
3. Keychain, pendant or brooch with respective silhouette views
This idea is not with photos but from a photo.
It is a keychain, pendant or brooch made from the silhouette of respective profile views, so that each of them carries with it the other.
If you’re interested in this craft, you’re in luck because we make our own creations! And we can do it with different materials: alpaca, copper, brass or silver.
In addition, we can record on one side the date of your birthday, the coordinates of the place where you met, or the sound wave of a hidden voice message that you can listen to by scanning a QR code:
2. Thaumatrope of a kiss
Do you know what a thaumatrope is? It is a disk printed by the two men who have to move at high speed causing a cinematic effect of overlapping images.
It can be done with a toothpick, or with an elastic band or cord.
In the proposal that we leave you below, on each face it would be no de vosotros giving each other a kiss.
If he doesn’t have such a photo, you can take one photo of your partner in which he leaves the front and take a profile picture of yourself blowing a kiss for the final effect that you are giving yourself a kiss on the cheek.
Below is a tutorial showing how to do both with the toothpick as with rubber bands or strings
1. Photographs hanging from helium balloons
This idea is super simple and super result. That’s why it’s our favorite. You have an effect similar to finding your leg full of petals.
The only complicated thing is that you have to buy a can of helium to keep the balloons on the ceiling:
