Forget Photoshop: If you can’t be there for family photos at the reunion this summer, send a head-size pillow with your face on it instead. Open since August and headquartered on Capitol Hill, PillowMob puts a high-res image of your lovely mug on a circular- or oval-shaped pillow ($25, includes shipping), sewn on-site. Creative pillow makers have also used their own photos of doughnuts, fruit and pets. You might consider a celebrity you’ve dreamed of taking a nap with. Upload whatever image you choose to PillowMob.com; the website guides you through the pillow-picking process. Put your face on several pillows and suddenly you can be everywhere at once.
