Christmas is quickly getting closer and it’s time to start getting organised and to think about gifts for loved ones. I love receiving and giving personalised gifts that are original and designed just for the recipient. A lot of thought and love goes into gifts like that and that makes them mean more.

Photos, photos, everywhere – and what better way to use them than to make the perfect (Christmas) gift?
I’ve written many times before about how I’m as snap-happy as the next blogger / proud mama and how I’m always looking to make the most of my photos.
And part of this is making special gifts for friends and family.
I’ve made personalised calendars for friends and family for a few years now (I missed out last year to the disappointment of some!) and I’ve been looking for other fun ways to bring photos, and the memories they represent, to life.
And Snapfish, my go-to online photo service, have quite a few photo gift ideas on offer, including coasters.
Get creative with the kids and create a fun frames using 4×4″ prints and lolly pop sticks! Simply follow these easy steps
What you’ll need:
- Lolly pop sticks
- Foam letters, sequins, or any other fun decorations
- Your favourite 4×4″ Snapfish print
- String/ ribbon
Get in close and focus on one aspect of a costume-in this case, the makeup. Whether photographing costumes, decorations, parties, pick the most important facet and zero in on it by moving in close. By doing this, you’ll avoid a common photography error: cluttered pictures with no discernible subject or not enough detail.
The best way to stop all those masterpieces piling up is to scan and upload your kids art and to your secure Snapfish account! You can really showcase the work as a large poster print, smaller table top photo panels, coasters or even a couple of small magnets for the fridge.
If you don’t have a scanner, you can photograph their art. Be sure to lay it against a plain, white background, zoom in close enough to see details, and use a flash.
You can easily crop, rotate, or adjust the brightness of your digital images with our free editing tools. Click on ‘edit & organise’ and then ‘fix & enhance’ on your photos page to get started.
