1. Your feet: Now you can buy a pair of Adidas ZX FLUX sneakers customized with a photo you snapped yourself. As long as it’s not a copyrighted image, the sky is the limit for what pics you can put on these puppies. A city skyline? A great meal? Your beloved pooch? The sneakers just became available in the U.S. on November 11, so these custom kicks would be a cutting edge present for the super stylish set. To get started, download the miZX FLUX app for iPhones, iPads and Android. Sneakers start at $110. Orders take 4-6 weeks so that means you better move to get them in time for the holidays!

2. Your shower: Looking for a unique way to perk up a loved one’s daily rituals? Try getting a special photo or photos printed onto a shower curtain. Starting at $39, HelloPics’ custom photo shower curtains allow you the choice of uploading 1, 2, 4, 9 or 16 photos onto a standard 71″x74″ piece of poly. As with the sneakers, the imagery options are wide open, whether it’s a great artistic shot or a fun family one.
