This weekend we had one of our many family Christmas gatherings because we have so many relatives and distant relatives that we enjoy spending time with. Even though we were under strict instructions NOT to bring a gift, I thought it would be rude to go empty handed because that’s just the way I roll. I kept hearing so much about Walgreens and their array of photo gifts, so I decided to try the Walgreens mobile app to see if I could create a gift on the fly to take with us.
So using my iPhone while seated on the sofa enjoying my coffee, I pulled up the Walgreens mobile app to get started with something. I already had some photos stored on my phone of JP that I loved, so I decided that I’d use those. I love that I had the option of pulling photos from Facebook and instagram too!
I decided on an 11×14 canvas print because I think they are such incredible keepsakes. I wish I would have paid better attention to the cropping guidelines as shown by the pink rectangle, because part of his hat got cut off. Once I pressed the ‘print to Walgreens’ button, it was submitted and informed me that my order would be ready to collect in an hour.
I made my way to the Walgreens I sent my order to, and checked with the photo counter. Turns out that they were slightly behind and they were just now getting it off the printer. I decided to wait around abit for them to finish it because they said it wouldn’t take very long. When I was ready to check out, I had forgotten my balance reward card, so I keyed in my phone number that helps me rack up points.
When I took it home, I was so impressed with how well made it was in such little time! I love that it had a black velvet backing with hardware for hanging already in place. Also, it had a thick and sturdy 1.5″ frame that it was stretched over. Gallery canvas wraps are some of my favorite gifts to give because of how simple and inexpensive they are. The truth is, I’ve used other services for this exact type of thing and the Walgreens canvas wrap is well made for the price.
Be sure to try out the Walgreens mobile app to create some holiday gifts of your own!
