As the holidays approach, we scramble to select the perfect gift for everyone on our list in an attempt to show the people we love the most that we know just what is their heart’s desire.

However, most of the time, our family and friends would rather spend an afternoon laughing together than receive an elaborate gift. This year, I chose to wrap small meaningful gifts with snapshots from throughout the year. I love using my instant print camera to capture silly moments shared between those closest to me.

If you don’t have an instant print camera, or want to share a memory that was captured with your phone, not to worry! There are some great websites that will print them out for you! My favorite is Artifact Uprising; you can order a set of 25 square prints for about $20. Your friends and family will surely enjoy reliving a special memory as they open up their gift.

Step 1: Wrap the gift with Kraft paper.

Step 2: Use your instant print camera to capture something meaningful (or print out an image taken previously). Attach the print to the package using double stick tape.

Step 3: Add a bit of twine to the package, and adorn with fresh greenery and flowers.

What are your favorite last-minute gift ideas?
