Christmas is fast approaching with less then three weeks until the big man in red visits and I, like many other people am busy buying and wrapping gifts. When I am buying gifts I like to buy thoughtful gifts that I know will be loved and appreciated, I am a big fan of personalised gifts and I especially love photo gifts.
In this day and age I am guilty of taking photos on my phone, uploading them to social media and then totally forgetting all about them. I always forget to print them out. So when Snapfish got in touch to see if I would like to create a range of photo based stocking fillers I knew that I had to get creative and see what I could come up with.
Snapfish offer a fantastic range of photo gifts from traditional prints and canvases to fun memorable Christmas gifts such as calenders, mugs and key rings. Their is so many gifts that you can get creative with and turn into something special for a loved one this Christmas. After browsing the site for ages I finally decided that I would create a keyring, some magnets, a photo panel and an adorable teddy bear wearing a personalised photo t-shirt.
Ordering the gifts was really quick and easy and they were well priced and all arrived via royal mail delivery. The first item that I received was the keyring this was priced at £2.99 and is such a perfect stocking filler idea. I ordered this for my other half as it has a photo of my little two children on my sons first birthday a few months ago and it is one of the few 'nice' photos we have of the two of them together. I think that he will really like this as it is a practical yet personal gift and is just the right size for putting in to a stocking.
Next I decided on getting three fridge magnets, each with a photo of my three children on. I am planning on putting these in each of their stockings and then putting them on the fridge as I thought that they would be great for sticking invites, appointments and school/nursery letters on that I always put on the fridge. I also thought that they will know to stick any letters they have under their magnet so that we can see what each child has coming up.
I thought that this 7x5 photo panel would make a great gift as it is a collage with all three of my children on priced at £9.99. As I mentioned I am really bad at not printing photos of my children out, even the ones we have paid professionally for so hardly any of are family have any photos of them. I thought this little photo panel would make a great gift for a family member, so they can actually have pictures of the children and as they are all on one panel it looks nicer and less cluttered then having to have three different frames. The only hard part is deciding who to give this too as it so cute I am tempted to keep it for myself.
Lastly I could not resist this adorable bear, I decided to get the photo of my little two printed on his t-shirt as I thought that this would be a lovely keepsake for them to keep in there bedroom. This will be something that they can keep and treasure forever and it is extra special as it has a photo of them both on it. This would also make a great gift for someone you don't see often or for a loved one with a special photo on. This was only £12.99 and the bear is super soft and has moveable limbs and he is just lovely.
So that is what I decided to order, if you get creative then you really can come up with so many clever and special gifts for loved ones this Christmas, and I am sure that any gift you come up with will be extra special and treasured forever.
What would you create from Snapfish for a stocking filler ?
