We have a VERY limited budget for Christmas this year. Is it ok to give family pictures of my children in nice frames as a present? We have over 30 people to but presents for.

    Thats what my family does when money's tight. I also have a big family and its great to have pics of all of them so I think its a great idea.

    i have given framed photos of us and the kid a few times as gifts, and decorated the frames too. Everyone loved them.

    That's what I get my dad every year. We don't buy for any other adults. Other then our own kids we buy for my friend's 3 kids and my daughter's best friend (whose family is long time friends of ours). We don't buy for any other family members. And that's on a good year.

    It's funny that I came across this as this is what I've just done, today, for my best friend for her xmas present. My son is 3 and the last time we had family pics he was 6 months old. We just had them done last month and they are the best pics of us. I gave my best friend an 8x10 of our son and a 5x7 of the 3 of us; I bought nice wood, but cheapo ($6/each) frames and they look very professional and expensive. We bought for my husband's grandparents a water globe and will put a wallet of our son in the middle, so that way they have something unique, but didn't break our budget.
