Photos capture a moment that hold so many feelings and emotions, they can take you back to the place the photo was taken, you can remember the scents, what the weather was like etc. photos make great gifts and combining them with a handmade item makes them a little more meaningful. Snapfish is an online printing service, as well as offering a wide range of photo gifts.
The photo prints service is really easy to use, upload photos, select sizes and opt got a matte or glossy finish.
I had ideas on what I wanted to make so selected personal photos as well as images from the web. I still have a few more ideas for the photos but below are three photo/handmade gift ideas.
Are you looking for new ways to inject energy into your photography? Try taking a new perspective on familiar views or objects. All you need to do is change your position or tilt the camera at a quirky angle – no expensive new equipment is required! Get started with this handy guide to perspectives:
Straightforward snapping – take a direct view
When you take photos at eye-level, it’s called the ‘central perspective’. This is great for taking clear photos of landscapes or buildings, and portrait photos of people and animals.

If you’re anything like me, you will have thousands of photos on your camera or phone and once every 6 months or so, you’ll do a batch of printing but never actually do anything with the prints! I know I’ve got so many photos that I haven’t even put in albums yet but I am making a real concerted effort to actually do more with my photos. With the help of Snapfish, I have created a few ideas that you might like to try out either for yourself or to use as gifts!
The first idea is the most simple; creating a memory book. This idea is something that I started when my husband and I started dating. I used a book he brought me home as a gift from his trip to Bali and then every time we did something or went somewhere I’d add it to the book. It’s got years of wonderful memories in that I can share with my children when they are older.

We have just started a new feature wall in my house and the idea is that it will be a wall of mix and match photos, images and illustrations that reflect my family’s life and passions. It’s a feature wall that will gradually grow as we add more pieces of art and photos to it.
For the start of the wall we ordered four slim canvas prints – three that are 8×8” big and one that’s 12×12”. You can start with anything as long as you start in a place of the wall that allows you to expand the picture feature.
The canvas prints arrived a few days after I ordered them. They were individually packaged and well-protected. The small canvas prints were wrapped in plastic and the large one in a soft cover.
