25 Days Of Christmas~More Awesome Photo Gifts

So, is it weird that I really like that Gap “boots” commercial?
You know, the one with the cute little girls dancing around in cute boots/tights/sweaters/hats/etc, singing that catchy tune about their boots?
I also really like the Free Credit commercials…….The one with the 3 guys lip-syching pretty badly in different venues.
Weird huh?
Today I wanted to re-post an awesome idea for a gift to send to grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other family members!

Photo blocks puzzle!
I posted this in July for “Christmas in July”, but wanted to show it again since it’s so fun (my kids wouldn’t stop playing with it untill I wrapped it up and sent it off to grandpa)!
So, go here to get the full tute and for the blocks.
And here to get the tute for the box and a download for the insert (so your receipient will know what the pics are supposed to look like)

So get to it and……

Have fun!

  1. I love that Gap commercial too. I go around singing it. More than that… my husband HATES it! LOL!

    Super cute gift idea Emily, thanks!

  2. I love this tutorial-I already made some for my Mom and mother-in-law. I tried to get the insert, but I couldn’t figure out what to do when I got to mediafire. Any hints?? Thanks again for the cool ideas!

  3. Yep love it too…. but my FAV commercials are the ones that are “too light” and “too heavy” I think its advertising beer but oh my the nail gun one is HILARIOUS!! Love the blocks!

  4. I love the commercials!!! I sing along every time!!

  5. I’m so glad you love the Gap commercial… I thought I was the only one!
    My favorite part is when the blond one is screaming her head off. My husband and two teenage sons laugh at me for liking the commercial so much, but I don’t care… after it’s over, I like to sing out loud (off-key, of course) “These boots are so cute, these boots are so cute!” to annoy them. If I had a girl, she would be dressed in colorful stripes and those cute boots!

  6. that is so cute! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love this idea.

  8. When I click for the tute on the insert, I don’t see anything. Is it just me?

  9. Um…I rewind that commercial and watch it AT LEAST 3 times. I even have my girls singing it! “I love my comfy sweater, I love my comfy sweater, how cute are these boots?!” They remind me of MY girls, the screaming! :0)

  10. That is so cute images! It is truly great Christmas gift for any one, but in my opinion when you think for gift just try to think of something that would be useful to that person, we all have so much “stuff” (nicknack’s and trinkets, candles we don’t burn because they’re too pretty… lol).

    Great weekend.
