PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 20, 2006

For individuals wracking their brains to come up with holiday gift ideas this year, HP makes it possible to add a personal touch to last-minute gift giving without breaking the bank.

With just a click, people can log on to the HP Activity Center at for some great gift ideas, from personalized greeting cards and wrapping paper to an origami calendar and heirloom photo cookbook.

At the HP Activity Center, people can download and print hundreds of free and easy holiday projects. Users simply select the project, choose a design theme, upload personal photos, add some text, download and print – all for free. Ideas include:

  • Holiday wrapping paper – Add a personal touch to holiday gifts by customizing wrapping paper. Simply take a few holiday items – such as candy canes, ornaments or holly – and scan them on an HP all-in-one printer, which prints, scans and copies in a flash. Then, all a person has to do for instant wrapping paper is press “print”; it’s especially convenient for small gift boxes.
  • Personalized holiday cards – Run out of holiday greeting cards for the kids’ teachers, the hairdresser and mail carrier? Instead of spending money on new cards, download free printable holiday cards for anyone that may have been inadvertently left off the list.
  • Origami photo calendar – HP’s origami-inspired photo calendar lets gift givers customize each day of the year, so their loved ones will never forget another important event. Simply choose a theme, add photos and text, and download the calendar for a homemade holiday gift.
  • Heirloom photo cookbook – This cookbook can be personalized with favorite recipes and family photos. With a few clicks of the mouse, people can pick a design theme, add their own content and print a thoughtful holiday gift that will take only minutes to whip together.
