Perfect Gifts for Dad or Grad!! Collage.com

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


There are a lot of companies that will change your photos into other things. In fact, there are so many that it is sometimes hard to decide which to use/where to go. The quality differs from place to place too, that's for sure, so when you find a high quality company that you like, sticking with them just makes good sense. I've found two over the years that I really like. Both of them consistently produce high quality photo items and gifts. One of them is Collage.com

I have ordered from them several times for various items, and each and every time I have been thoroughly pleased. If you're shopping for Dad (Father's Day) or grad (high school or college graduation), Collage.com has so many items that would make awesome gift ideas.

30" x 62" Personalized Photo Beach Towel

They have beach towels that you can personalize most any way you choose. You can put words or pictures on your towel, and you can choose from different colors, fonts, etc.

My granddaughter just turned (3). She has a little beanbag kitty she calls 'Kiki.' That kitty goes with her everywhere, and if that stuffed cat comes up missing at bed time, oy vey!! there's trouble. ;) So...for little baby grand's birthday, I had a towel made for her that has a reapeated photo of her precious Kiki.

You can choose one or multiple photos, or you can duplicate one over and over
like I did with our towel. Super soft, solid color back.

I debated on making the towel with one big picture on it, but felt like it was going to be the muliple smaller ones that would make her happiest. I could have put her name on it too, but with the cat's picture, I thought it was personalized enough. I knew everyone was going to just know that was baby girl's towel.

You could make a beach towel for the grad or dad in your life very easily as well. Feel free to use one photo or multiple ones, or like we did with Kiki the Cat, you can duplicate the same picture over and over again if it suits the look you're wanting to create.

The towel is nice and big, measuring 30" x 62" and it is super soft and absorbent too. It holds from 1 to 75 photos. It is perfect for the pool, the beach, or just as a special keepsake.

The canvases at Collage.com come in many sizes, you can get multi-panels too!

You could also make a photo collage on canvas. Collage.com makes the nicest canvases I've seen to date. I have two of them, one I gifted and one for myself. They come in many different sizes and you can get them multi-paneled too. Depending on the size you can use up to 200 photos on the canvas. This 16" x 20" version showcases pictures of places we visited when we were in Rome. 

The color and the black & white photos turned out great!
You can see that Collage.com did a great job with both the color and the Black & White versions of the photos. For dad maybe you could use pics of the kids and/or grandkids. For the grads you could make a photo compilation of them from grades K-12, just in senior year or use photos from special moments or a trip like I did with mine. Whatever you choose the quality is going to leave you with something you (or they) will be proud to hang on your wall.

The serving tray comes in two wood finish options, as well as two different sizes.
Another gift idea, and while I love the first two, this one is my absolute favorite, is a photo tray. We're all roller coaster nuts in this house so I chose to use photos we've taken of our favorites from Cedar Point (also our favorite amusement park). I absolutely love how this photo project turned out. This kind of quality is exactly why I love to use Collage.com for both myself, and for gift giving. I like how unique this one is...I don't think I've ever seen a personalized photo serving tray before. This  item/gift is in a word, 'awesome!'

Each side of the tray has a convenient built-in handle.

The meal tray I selected is 11.25" x 17" and it's perfect for serving the kids breakfast in bed on the weekends. You could also select the cocktail size which is 8" x 13". It comes in natural light or dark wood finish. This is a high quality wood tray and the top of it simply wipes clean. Each side has built-in convenient handles. You can use this tray in so many different ways, and for so many different things. I'm betting it's absolutely something most any dad or grad would love too.

If you've got some shopping / gift giving to do, Collage.com can help you save your memories forever.

Thats really cool. The towel is great. What is the towel quality like? Personalized gifts are great I use cheerz .com & made photo fridge magnets as a cool gift.

mail4rosey said...

It's nice! One of the best things about collage.com is their quality. They def. don't skimp. This towel dries well and it's not too thin! The photos look like they're going to stay put a good long time too, which is important to me because towels get washed a lot around here!

Sandee said...

Wow, these are great. Really great and so personalized.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Photo gifts are always so fun for me. I love giving them and getting them too!

I love the idea of a photo tray. My Hubs has so many hunting pictures that just lay in a box. No one looks at them. If I had them on a try, everyone could see.

Tamra Phelps said...

What a neat idea. I think I want that tray just for me, lol.

Heather OCain said...

Great ideas, I love the photo tray!

Amanda said...

Graduation photos are a must for any graduating teen and then there is fathers day coming up what a great gift to give to a grad or a father something personalized has always mean a lot more to me. I have some photo projects I would like to create too. SO much of Bella art work she brings home from school would make cute gifts.
Thank you for letting us know about a great company and one I have yet to hear about.

Claire Algarme said...

Oh, this is cool! It's a great gift for all occasions. My friends and I like to gift each other with the collage of our travel photos. Now, we can even take it a bit further and put them into items!

Lana Slaybell said...

Cool. I like how you can customize the towels. I also like the picture collage.

Fred Hawson said...

This is a very good and practical business idea. As long as the quality of the prints are long-lasting, this should be very good personalized gifts.

I love the way you can customize almost everything these days with collages or just single pictures. They make really cute gifts! I saw a customized toilet paper once and found it silly slightly weird though.

Great gift ideas for dad, and come to think of it, for grads, too! Trays are great for breakfast in bed and also as catch-alls for the little things that wind up scattered around the house, so a personalized tray could really make for a great gift.

These are awesome personalized gifts that the recipient will surely feel the effort put behind it! Thanks for the wonderful suggestions!
