Christmas gifts for men, an age old question. Or any gifts, really! Holidays, birthdays, just because. Sometimes the men in our lives are hard to buy for. And let’s face it, this is not exclusive to men. Sometimes gifts are hard to procure for the people we love the most because, well, we’re trying to communicate to the person just how much they mean to us and we want to get it right! We thought about the men in our lives and what would make them smile this year and we’re here to help with thoughtful and personal gift ideas for guys.
Our Daily Calendar is the perfect little unique gift that will get prominent display all year. Select 366 of your favorite photos (leap year, yo!) and we’ll print them on a tearaway calendar that comes bound together and packaged in a kraft box perfect for gifting.
For someone who has everything, this calendar stands out. The recipient will know you took care in selecting the images and they’ll have a connection to the photos you curated every day. It’s compact in size so it won’t take up a lot of space, plus it’s functional! Added bonus: his favorite prints can be saved and used for whatever he likes once the year is over.
Custom photo calendars are now available in the Print Studio app for iOS and it’s super simple to make these right on your iPhone. Check out this comprehensive post on creating these unique calendars in the app or find them on our website here.
Giant Photostrips are a fun take on printed photos that we can almost guarantee he doesn’t have lying around anywhere! These classic photobooth-style strips are blown up to be five times the size and ten times the fun and they’re a hit with everyone who lays eyes on them.
These would make a great gift for a boyfriend to print relationship highlights, a college-aged nephew for display in his dorm room, or a son to decorate his room with some favorite family photos. The possibilities are endless!
Giant Photostrips come in sets of two, each with four photos. The photo strips measure 9x36” and each photo measures 8.5 x 8.5”. Printed on professional Kodak paper with a luster finish. Our small Wooden Hangers work perfectly for hanging these, so add those to your cart to complete the package.
What does the man in your life love the most? Whatever it is, print it out and turn it into a tiny photo album for him! This could be photos of his dog, photos of his kids, photos of his favorite meals, or maybe even photos of you?! Our Tiny Books are unique because they are truly miniature at just 1.7”x1.5”. The pocket-friendly photo album he can take anywhere is also magnetic! So they stick together, to the fridge, or to the file cabinet in his office.
Tiny Books come in sets of 3 and each book contains 24 photos. Select that many photos for 3 identical books or choose 72 photos for 3 unique books. Upload photos straight from your Instagram or camera roll. Available on the Print Studio iOS app or on our website.
Santa Cruz Frames
The best part about an adventure is that you get to keep it forever in your memory! The trend toward giving experiences in lieu of physical gifts speaks to the priceless nature of adventures and we’re a big fan of this kind of present.
Once an adventure is over, having a small keepsake of it can keep the memory alive and spark conversation about it for years to come. Our Santa Cruz Frames are the perfect frame for adventurous souls. Made of reclaimed barnwood right in Santa Cruz, their rustic look pairs well with memories of the epic variety. Our 4x4 prints fit well inside these barnwood frames, so order a set of full-bleed prints and he can swap out images as he likes.
If you’re looking for a more unique way to display his favorite memory, Wood Prints are a great option. We print your photo on 100% sustainably-sourced Maple wood in sizes from 4x4” all the way up to 30x40” and we have panoramic size options too!
Outdoorsy photos like sunsets and ocean scenes can be particularly nice on wood as the grain shows through the lighter parts of the image and gives it a really unique and rustic look. Installed with a float hanger on the back for easy hanging.
Photos don’t have to be reserved for when the adventure is over. Sometimes having a little piece of home along for the trip is an ideal way to stay connected with the people and places he loves most of all. Pick 50 of his favorite photos and we’ll print them back to back on cardstock with a glossy finish and spiral-bind them in a little book.
Mini Books come in sets of 2. Select 100 of his favorite photos and receive 2 unique books, or select just 50 photos and receive 2 identical books. The only decision he’ll have to make is where to stash this on his travels.
Mini Prints are the perfect size to gift to him to slip into his wallet. They come in sets of 48 so you can choose all the highlights, from school photos to candid snaps and everything in between.
Mini Prints are printed on archival-quality cardstock that is a true delight to hold, so he’ll love opening these and tucking them in the places where he wants to pull them out for years to come. Mini Prints measure 3.3x2.2” and include a 3mm white border.

You can’t go wrong making him a photo album of his kids that will withstand the test of time. Our photo books stand out with 38 pages of thick paper with a glossy finish. Bound in hard cover that is customizable, a variety of page layouts allow for 20-228 photos.

Our Grid Frame is a clean, modern way to display some of his favorite photos where he’ll be able to appreciate them the most. Choose between 1, 4, 9 or 16 photos and we’ll print them on premium photo paper with a luster finish and professionally mat and frame them in a 12” x 12” wooden frame. Choose from one of our classic primary color options, or keep it simple by choosing a black or white frame. Frames come nicely packaged in kraft paper.
