I'm SO excited. Our Pinhole Press order arrived, and we're just loving the Memory Card Game.
Do you remember the game of Memory? (Here's a newer Hasbro version.) Well I loved playing as a kid because it was such a simple activity but we couldn't play it the same way twice.
Pinhole Press came up with the brilliant idea of doing a custom version in which you use photos of your family and friends, for only $20!!! For each game you choose 12 photos and Pinhole doubles them, prints them onto quality cards, and send them to your front door in a cute little package. The right size for under the tree, in a stocking, and travel--so you can take it anywhere!
Here are a few ideas for how you could personalize the Memory Card Game.
- Kids' art, and then you definitely don't have to keep it around for decades.
- Wedding anniversary. Choose your favorite photos, maybe the less formal ones, and give it as a first anniversary present.
- Graduation gift. Twelve years of academics pre-college, right? Perfect! Choose a fun photo from each year and present it at their summer party.
- Favorite recipes. For the cook or baker in your family, some photos of their favorite dishes would make a cute game that could be brought out during dinner parties. You could put 1-2 photos of dishes they haven't tried and include the recipes with your gift for an added touch.
- Work projects. Say your spouse is an architect. It'd be visually interesting as well as a pleasant reminder of the great work he or she has done.
- Monthly snapshot. I hear a lot of people do this. Take a photo on the same day of the month to capture where the family is at that point in time. If you did this every year, it would be a sweet timeline!
We love that this is an affordable, quality, custom gift we can enjoy as a family. Ace takes it out every day and names the faces he sees. And I like actually playing the game. Not as easy with a 2-year-old, but more fun than solitaire!
