Use small photos of gift recipients instead of labels

Megan found a clever way to involve pre-readers in gift giving.

Use small color pictures of family members to label Christmas presents instead of writing nametags.  A 2-3 year old can help glue them on the packages, and even a 1-2 year old can match presents to people on Christmas morning.

What a great way to expand a toddler's contribution to a gift exchange.

A few years ago, a reader mentioned using mini-photos on gift tags to connect the gift to the giver. Wouldn't it be cool to have pictures of both recipient and giver? That would definitely charm most grandparents.
