You guys know how much I love taking photos and also how much I love something that's homemade so I'm really excited to share some Christmas Photo gift ideas with Snapfish with you here on the blog as they tick both of these boxes. I love using images of mine that I'm super proud of to create personalised items. Earlier this year I made my mum a cushion featuring a photo I'd taken on a day out with her and she adored it, so I of course wanted to create some more items from Snapfish's photo products and Christmas themed ranges. I've also got a great Snapfish discount code too later on in the post which will save you money if you fancy making some of your own photo gifts.
One of the first things I made was a photo book. I decided that I loved so many of my images from my trip to Miami earlier this year that I would fill a book with some of my favourites and so chose the Snapfish Hardcover 11 x 18 Photo book. The brilliant thing is you can just add pictures from your social channels like Instagram and Facebook so I could quickly add some of the snaps that were most definitely insta worthy plus upload images from my computer too and mix and match. I even found this gorgeous layout thats all pastel tones which works so well with the Miami colours. I'm so pleased with it, its lovely to flip through and see all my snaps and was super quick to make.
I always like to send a fun and different Christmas card and the last couple of years I've involved the dogs. Snapfish have loads of pretty Christmas themed cards so you can simply add your own images into them. I opted for these cute festive Flat Cards for a change from a usual folded card. These are more like postcards and have designs on the front and back. I love the matte finish on these, it makes them look so rustic and as well as adding my favoutite photo of me and my fluffy boys I could customise the text too. So cute aren't they? The cards, not the dogs ha ha
Now I just need to get on with writing them all!!!
As I am a crazy dog mama I had to make myself some Christmas decorations featuring the boys and these Acrylic Christmas ornaments have literally turned out so well! I uploaded my favourite snaps of Eddie and Gus and added a little graphic embellishment too. You can add words, or shapes and borders. They look so great and come with a pretty red ribbon ready to hang on your tree.
I'm so tempted to make my mum a pair of these, I'm sure she'd love to hang her grand-dogs as she calls them on her tree this year. The photo comes printed onto the acrylic so the black of white of my images has worked really well.
One item I created which would make such a cute Christmas present is the Personalised Hardback Diary. I love buying my diary for the new year and this one, not only is lovely and hardback but you can add your own photo and customize the text too. It would be a lovely gift especially if you added a photo of the recipient to the front like I have.
I love this photo on the beach from Miami and as my diary will mostly be used for work I've added my blog name to the front. I chose the design from Snapfish's selection but you can still customize the colours and the patterns so there's so many combinations of what you could make. I love this. I feel like I can't wait to write my plans for 2019 in it already!
I had so much fun creating my photo items on Christmas Photo gift ideas with Snapfish. I take so many photos as part of my blog and my photography work it was so nice to utilize some of my faves and items like the baubles will be things I can get out year after year and really treasure.
If you fancy creating your own Snapfish projects then do I have a brilliant code for you. Use SANTA40 for 40% sitewide!! Such a great code and there's still plenty time to order before Christmas too! You can shop all the Snapfish ranges here.
This post is a Sponsored collaboration with Snapfish but all images and words have been created by me.
