I am so excited to share my next must have gift idea for the Holiday season. As parents, we all take TONS of pictures, right? Well, I know that I do! There have always been a wide variety of interesting photo gifts available, from books to throw blankets, even clothing featuring your priceless images. Well, the absolutely ingenious team at Vizardz is taking this concept one step further, and creating beautiful, elegant products that are sure to stand out in any home.
Vizardz is breaking new ground in the field of photography by applying the most advanced 3D technology to what has traditionally been a two-dimensional medium. The result is an innovative, multi-dimensional image made tangible through 3D personal sculptures and 2.5D pictures. What kinds of products do they offer? They create beautiful night lights, light boxes, ornaments, and even awesome 3D sculptures, all from your personal photos! How cool is that?! Using your favorite photos, Vizardz can help immortalize those memories in these fantastic products.
I learned about this company through one of my blogging groups. One of the ladies actually met the Vizardz team at the ABC Kids Expo and she immediately fell in love with their innovative product line. Can you blame her, though? Their work is so unique! Naturally, when the nice folks at Vizardz agreed to be part of my Holiday Gift Guide event, I was absolutely thrilled and couldn't wait to see what they would create with my photo!
I have to admit, choosing the perfect photo was a bit of a challenge. I had to sift through thousands of pictures to find the right one. When you have 3 kids, you take a lot of pictures! Please note: The higher resolution your photo is, the better the result will be. This was a great tip that the Vizardz team gave me before I selected my photo. Luckily, I have an awesome Canon camera that takes pretty good photos. (I am still learning all of the different settings, as I am not a photographer.) So if you have a decent camera, you can get a shot worthy of being used in one of these great products!
I wanted to use a photo of my 2 youngest babies to get a wonderful gift for my Grandma, who we will be seeing in just a couple of weeks. She has tons of pictures of my oldest son throughout her home, but none of the younger babies. They have internet and are even on Facebook, but they don't ever print out photos they see online. I thought a custom night light from Vizardz featuring the babies would make a great gift for them! My Grandma has had a night light in her home as long as I can remember. Now, something as ordinary as a simple night light can be transformed into something extra special and she can see her great-grandkids smiling at her whenever she turns it on!
When my Vizardz night light arrived, it came incredibly well packaged. This team takes great care to make sure that their delicate items are very well protected. When I took the night light out of the box, I was shocked at how thin the insert was! It feels like either some sort of ceramic or plaster. It is strong, but very slim, and it is shaped to fit perfectly into the night light housing. A note to those with small kids: If you order one of these night lights, be sure to plug it in where tiny, curious fingers cannot grab it! I would imagine it is probably fragile. There is also a light bulb behind the insert, and that could get very hot. This is the case for most night lights though, so exercising caution with the little ones is simply common sense!
Take a look at what the Vizardz night light looks like in action! This is so neat!
Isn't that simply amazing?! I love the look of this night light! Who knew you could take a photo and make such a gorgeous home decor accessory from it? I love this night light so much that I almost considered keeping it for myself! But, I do have the best Grandma in the world, so it will remain a gift. Hey, it is the season of giving, right?
Overall, I couldn't be happier with the product I received from Vizardz. It is high quality, very unique, and I love the 2.5D and 3D technology that they use to make favorite photos come to life. The staff is friendly and helpful, and their turnaround time is lightning fast. I would definitely recommend these products for the Holiday season. Or any season, for that matter! These unique photo gifts would be a welcomed addition for any home and perfect for any occasion!
