Yyou can put your photos on T-shirts, tote bags, calendars, mouse pads, and more. Several photo-printing sites offer these services, but if you're new to photo gifts, I suggest starting at Shutterfly and Snapfish. Here you'll find all the typical stuff, as well as goodies such as blankets, neckties, cutting boards, canvas wall art, jigsaw puzzles, hardwood boxes, and even playing cards. Another option is Zazzle, a site that lets you customize any of its gift items with your own photos. You can personalize just about anything: shoes, postcards, skateboards, key chains, buttons, kitchen magnets...even pet clothing. Zazzle can even make an acrylic 3D sculpture from a photo.
