Wake up with a friendly Cup of Joe

Many of us wake up and reach for a coffee mug each day only to find the same tired, old mug in the pantry. Why not add some personality to your morning routine with a custom photo mug? They’re a fun reminder of time spent with family and friends and an instant pick-me-up. Not to mention a unique gift for everyone in your life.

At Walgreens there are several options to choose from including a commuter mug, café mug, a latte mug, a travel mug or even a set of mugs for the home or office. Additionally, you can choose one single photo or you can make a collage mug that holds up to 15 images. Why not highlight fun family memories like your last family vacation or your son’s soccer game? It’s easy with Walgreens.

Another way to celebrate your family each day is to chronicle an important event like your baby’s first year or a special anniversary. That way you can take your favorite memories with you and remember the good times more often.

No matter what kind of mug you make, you will have several different sizes and styles to choose from at Walgreens. So, get started now and use your digital photos to recreate special moments that make any day happier.

Available in both 12- and 18-month options and in three sizes – 8 ½ x 11, 11.5 x 14 and 12 x 12 – you can choose from desktop, designer and planning calendars or get a collage calendar that holds up to 15 images. Best of all, your calendar can start at any point in the year and you can pick it up the same day you create it.

What kind of calendar will you create? Here are some popular ideas:

Life Through The Looking Glass

I grew up with a camera in my hands. True story. Maybe that’s why I’ve always been such a photo enthusiast. Now, as director of Social Media at Walgreens, it serves me well.

For me, the love of photography is an ingrained family trait. In fact, my dad was a photographer who worked at Fuji for more than 2 decades. I have fond memories of him turning our bathroom into a darkroom at one point, much to my mom’s chagrin. We always had cameras around the house and now we still do. Except today mine is a Nikon D700 that’s usually aimed at my two children, John and Cora.

Though sharing photos of my kids through email, Facebook and my website is simple and fun, there’s just something about seeing your photos printed. Over the years I’ve had my memories turned into slides, prints, photo books, canvas pieces and more. Look, when you had kids, you just want to show them off, you know? Plus, I take comfort in knowing that when my photos are printed they won’t end up in someone’s spam or lost in a computer file. Instead they’ll be in a frame or a scrapbook. I don’t know, for me it just gives the memory more meaning and makes it feel lasting.

Walgreens Glass Prints

One of my favorite ways to display photos is through Glass Prints. What are Glass Prints, you may ask? They are unique glass frames that allow your photo to be suspended and almost look like it floats in air. They provide a clean, easy way to showcase photos and they make colors pop when sunlight shines through. The glass comes in a variety of sizes and finishes including curved, beveled and clean cut. I love them, but I also love to give them as gifts. People never expect the level of sophistication they posses until they see them first-hand.
