We’ve had a lot of time to think about meaningful gifts this year (we’re pretty sure nobody needs another candle). One idea we absolutely love is Legacybox.

This genius service lets your giftee send in old home movies, photos, VHS tapes, and more, then digitizes each item by hand and sends it back on to her on a thumb drive. How does it work? Take advantage of this special Legacybox sale at HSN today, and you can be sure your loved one receives hers by Christmas.

To be clear: This is the actual box your recipient will fill with pictures, tapes, and more—anything she wants preserved. It comes with instructions, a prepaid shipping label with tracking info, and safety barcodes for each item.

Whenever she’s ready to use her Legacybox, she’ll drop her items inside and mail it in. She’ll get real-time updates throughout the process. A couple of weeks later, she’ll have receive all her goodies on a thumb drive (and by digital download too), plus she’ll have her originals back in hand.

Meanwhile all you have to do is catch this sale, then wrap the box and put it under the tree—or have it sent directly to your recipient.

There are various options available—all on sale right now. The smallest Legacybox gift allows your recipient to send in two pieces of media (say a wedding video and an old home movie). The price? Just $30, on sale from $50.

The largest gift allows for 38 pieces. Whatever they have, Legacybox can digitize it. We’re talking 35mm slides, negatives, 8mm film, 16mm film, BetaMax tapes, even dusty old mix tapes. The 38-piece option normally costs $590, but on sale right now, it’s available for $345. If you like, you can spread out the payments with HSN’s FlexPay plan, making five interest-free payments of $69 each. This special holiday deal also includes a shipping protection upgrade.

One lovely thing about having old home movies transferred to digital form is that they’re then easy to share with family and friends by email or on social media. In fact, even though it’s the giving time of year, you should seriously consider getting a Legacybox for yourself. Choosing the items to include is a great way to utilize the stay-home winter ahead. And you’ll end up with digital treasures that will last forever.

It might get addictive, like it did for this reviewer. “Love Legacybox,” says the five-star fan. “We had previously used Legacybox on old home movies. When we saw the value on HSN we jumped at the chance to finish transferring the rest of our VHS home movies to DVD and jump drive. Best price we saw online all season.”

So give your mom, aunt, sister, or best friend an incredibly thoughtful gift that—truly—the entire family can enjoy. Take advantage right now, and you’re all set for Christmas Day.
