Do you take tons of photos when you travel? When you get back home, do you just leave them on your phone or camera? I know I have a tendency to do this. If you do too, here are some easy ways to display your travel photos so you can share them with your friends and family!
#1: Put them in a scrapbook.
My favorite way to display your travel photos is to put them in a scrapbook.
Print out your favorite pictures and buy a scrapbook you like. If you are crafty, glue your photos to scrapbook paper with some cute embellishments. If you aren’t a crafty person, then buy photo sleeves that have spots for multiple photos on each page.
Then you can store your scrapbooks on a bookshelf. This will allow you to take them out easily to enjoy or share with friends and family.
#2: Make a photo book.
A wonderful (and easy) alternative to scrapbooks is to make photo books with your travel photos. Upload your photos to a service like Shutterfly. Create your book and order. It’s as simple as that!
I have used Shutterfly many times to make photo books and have always been happy. They do a great job. You can completely customize your books and print them in a variety of sizes. You can also choose soft or hard cover books.
As a bonus, many times you will find photo books on sale at Shutterfly! So you can save money while also displaying your travel photos!
#3: Put them in a digital photo frame.
If you really aren’t feeling creative and want to just dump your photos into a useable format, then a digital photo frame may be the solution for you.
Get yourself a digital frame you love and download your travel photos onto it. Then put it in a spot at home or in your office where you can easily see it and enjoy reliving your trips everyday.
#4: Make a slide show for your screen saver.
If you spend a lot of time on your computer, then another option to display your travel photos so you can enjoy them is to make a slide show for your screen saver.
This option will allow you to relive all those fantastic trips even when you are up to your eyeballs in work. It will also help remind you that it’s time for another vacation!
#5: Blow them up and frame them (or put them on a canvas).
Another one of my favorite ways to display your travel photos is to blow up the best one and frame it. I really like buying a frame while we are on a trip and then putting a picture from that trip into it.
Alternatively, you could blow up one of your best pictures and have it printed on canvas.
Regardless of whether you choose a frame or canvas, this idea will allow you to display your travel photos throughout your home. This will surround you with your favorite memories and make your home feel warm and interesting to guests.
#6: Make a puzzle, mug, or mousepad from a favorite photo.
If you prefer a more practical method to display your travel photos, then this one is for you! Pick out a cherished photo and have it printed on a puzzle, mug, or mousepad. You can choose any of these items (and many more) at Shutterfly.
You could also have your photos printed onto Christmas ornaments to give your tree a collection of favorite memories. This is also a great idea for giving the gift of travel memories to your loved ones!
It’s very easy for all of us to take a bunch of photos while we are on vacation and then forget about them when we come home. And before we know it, our travels are just sitting there on our phones and/or camera for months and years.
To fully enjoy your photos, get them off the camera and into a format where you and your family can enjoy them on a regular basis. These ideas are all easy ways to display your travel photos that you can start using today!
