Ordering the affordable, made-in-Canada gifts is simple, too—just head to and check out its easy-to-use customizing feature.

Read on to shop just a few of our favourite gift-worthy items.

The classic gift

When’s the last time you actually had a photo printed? If it’s been a while, like it has for us, you’ve probably forgotten how special it feels to hold a memory in your hand versus swiping around it on your phone. Blacks offers stunning photo prints

in an array of sizes, with options for glossy or matte finishes or a white border. Best of all? You can get 100 prints—and a gift that lasts forever—for as little as 10 cents each.

Price: from $0.10


The ultra-customazible gift

Imagine the joy that comes with being able to flip through some of your fave photos for an entire year. Now you can, with Blacks’ custom calendars. With a number of different formats—including poster and mousepad calendars—and personalization options (you can go with one amazing photo for the year, or choose one for each month), there’s no shortage of possibilities. You can also mark birthdays and other significant dates directly on the grid (with photos, of course).

The Keepsake gift

Capture all of you and your loved ones’ most meaningful memories in a pretty personalized photobook. Blacks offers a number of different choices in terms of covers and binding, but we love the elegance of the hardcover with 20 pages for images, which also includes the option of adding a photo to the cover.

The fun decor gift

Get them something that will remind them of you whenever they look at it—like this joy-inducing photo cushion. Available in two sizes and finishes (a luxe soft-touch and convenient waterproof ), it will add a fun, unique touch to any living space.
