I love it – it’s really one of those super thoughtful gifts that most people don’t receive in their lives.

Good luck with your search!

@anhelms:  i think that’s an amaaazing idea. my mum lost her father quite young but was very close to him and unfortunately doesn’t have a lot of things from him or photos. a few years ago, i framed a small black and white photo of him at his hunting lodge – it was the original, a square print from the 60s or 70s and she cried when she opened it. it was such a simple gift that meant so much to her – it’s been on top of the piano ever since 🙂 

i think it’s a fantastic idea that she will cherish! and what a special thing for you to do for her – she’ll realise just how much effort you put in.

Great Idea! I’m sure she will love the pic, but she will love the thoughtfulness even more.

You could  enlarge and frame one pic and perhaps also do a small album. It’s so easy for people to scan and send you their pics.

@anhelms:  You might want to wrap a box of tissues with it 😉  Such a sweet, thoughtful gift!  I love it and I think she will too!

My father’s family went through a house fire when he was 14, and three of his siblings died in it. Two years later his father also passed away. As time went on, family members started to bring them extra photos or actual photos of the father and siblings, they received wood projects my carpenter grandfather had made. It really touched them, and my father has cherished what little things he has.

I think the photos is a wonderful idea, and so many family members are willing to help to fill in the blanks when something so tragic happens. For my parents’ 30th wedding anniversary I retouched their wedding photos, they had a family friend do them and the photos were horrendous, my mother was specifically upset that a piece of her hair had fallen into her face and looked odd in every photo. She laughed with glee when she opened the album, 30 years later (they never had an album) and found to her delight that the magic of photoshop had stolen away with the rogue piece of hair.

Pictures mean so much to people, whether we think so or not, I’m sure there are some family members who might have some photos they won’t mind sending to you so you can scan them or something?
