You could, for instance, try spotting your favourite celebrities on Rodeo Drive and in the restaurants around the Golden Triangle - an area popular with the stars.

Or you could capture a perfect souvenir by taking a picture in front of the famed Beverly Hills sign in Beverly Gardens Park, or window shop until you drop on Rodeo Drive - its luxury shops are perfect for day-dreaming.

You could also spot your favourite designer, model or fashion legend on Rodeo Drive's Walk of Style - each has a plaque embedded in the sidewalk with their name, a quote and their autograph.

Capture those holiday moments has 10 ideas for displaying your favourite holiday snaps.

1. Canvas print. This could be a single giant picture, or a collage that combines 50 scenes from the same holiday.

2. A chalkboard frame. Place the picture in the middle and scrawl whatever messages you want around it.

3. Fridge magnets. Either fix a magnetic strip to the back of a printed photograph, or upload high-res snaps of anywhere and get the magnet made by a professional company.

4. Mugs. Any picture, be it a holiday photo or not, can be printed on a personalised mug.

5. A photo clock. It could be a simple plate-shaped hanging picture with hands - or alternatively the clock could just be at the centre of a ring of photographs.

6. A calendar made up of holiday snaps.

7. A recycled door. Old-style doors with glass panelling are perfect for preserving photographs.

8. A pillow/cushion case - a nice way to cuddle up to happy memories.

9. A hot water bottle.
