Sleep on Your Loved Ones With hotels.com

Pillowcasephoto It used to be the case that people had little photographs of their loved ones in their wallets, to remind them of those waiting at home while they were away on business. Nowadays, most people can view photos on their mobile phones, anyway, so the need for the tattered photo in the wallet has disappeared. But really, what fun is it looking at a photograph that’s at most about three inches wide?

Well, for those who don’t like looking at thumbnail-sized images of their family, how about sleeping on those images instead? The booking site hotels.com have recently come up with a service that allows you to imprint a photograph onto a pillowcase. All you have to do is email a picture to pillowphotos@hotels.com and they'll work their magic.

Sure, the technology is nothing too bleeding-edge. After all, your standard high street photo store already allows you to plaster photographs all over mouse-pads, T-shirts and mugs. But imagine stepping into a cold, nameless hotel room in a cold, nameless city, only to be greeted by a photograph of your kids on the pillowcase. Surely that makes you feel much closer to them (or gives you horrible nightmares, depending on your kids).

Perhaps airlines that already charge for pillows—such as Ryanair—might be able to use such a service to their advantage? Think of the passengers who would rather pay for a pillow with a photo of their family on it than one with an airline logo
