Posted by Lifetime Adoption on January 5, 2013

From time to time, we will tell you about a new product. This is purely because someone on our staff or sphere of influence has had a good (or bad) experience. We want to share with you what we know and hopefully it will be of some use. If you have not heard of Shutterfly, it is worth checking out!

Go onto Shutterfly.com to see what’s new in their product line, as well as exciting offers. They can take your precious family photos and create tangible memories you will turn to again and again. Share the blessing of your new adoption with loved ones far and wide. With the arrival of a new baby, everyone wants to see him/her. It is amazing to see the wide variety of items that can share your joy and good news.

For family and friends miles away, there is no better surprise, than to receive pictures of your sweet adopted baby. Changes happen fast and you want to capture those fleeting memories of your little one. Maybe you didn’t get on the ball quick enough to send out Christmas greeting cards. Why not start a new family tradition and send out cards for New Years? Let everyone know your family’s story. Here are some wonderful ways:

  • New Year’s cards: Connect with those who really matter. Shutterfly has a wide variety of greeting cards to choose from. They offer flat and folded cards in a variety of styles. You will find contemporary, whimsical, religious and traditional designs.
  • Photo books
  • iPhone cases w/photo on the cover
  • Picture mugs
  • Wall calendars; Each month displays a different favorite picture of your child
  • Photo emblazoned water bottles
  • Photo coasters
  • Photo playing cards
  • Photo mouse pads that are perfect for home or work
  • Picture puzzles

You can also create memories your baby can enjoy as they grow up with the magic of Shutterfly. Have you thought to make a photo book from the experience of picking your baby up at the hospital and the following weeks? The books from Shutterfly are beautiful and hard bound. The pages are made from premium, double thick paper. You can write the captions in a story framework. It will be your little ones’ favorite bedtime story book.

Another great idea is to have pictures taken at your adoption baby shower. Take the photos and create little keepsake books for all your guests. Mail them out with your thank you notes. They will be happily surprised at your thoughtful gesture. Your shower or adoption party will be remembered and talked about every time they thumb through the book.

Let Shutterfly help you get creative! We receive magical pictures of your little ones almost every week, here at Lifetime Adoption. Wouldn’t Grandma love a picture mug on her birthday? Your best friend ( that moved to the East coast) will squeal with delight, when she opens the glossy New Years’ card announcing your adoption. There are endless ways to spread the joy for 2013.
