Why a photo makes the perfect gift
Posted: 14 Dec 2017
Do you dread the thought of being caught in the throes of gift shopping? Can’t face battling the crowds to pick a gift that your friend or loved one won’t really appreciate? The best gifts after all are the ones that are meaningful and that can be kept for a lifetime, so why not mix things up and give the gift of a photograph, instead?
A photograph that brings back special moments and shared memories from a wedding, an anniversary, or simply that shows off a shot you’re proud of, is a unique gift. We document so many moments and store them on our phones, computers and Instagram feeds – why not take these digital memories that we don’t often look back on and turn them into a piece of art to be displayed to others?
The easiest way of giving a personalised gift is through cards – why buy impersonal and unoriginal shop-bought cards when you can design, print and make your own in the time it takes to snap, post, and like a photo? Our printable Foto Cards cards come in a range of sizes and finishes and are produced on our highest quality paper to give you a great quality card.
If you’re looking for something a little bit different, our Fotoblocks give a modern twist on framed photos or artwork. Your photo will be printed onto a foam core which is covered in a thin MDF outer shell and looks so effective hung on a wall or on a mantelpiece. Photos displayed on Fotoblocks make a huge impact and will definitely be a talking point!
Looking for a quick way to create a personalised gift? Easy Books photo albums are the perfect way to preserve special occasions. They come in a range of finishes and sizes and take just seconds to make. Simply fold back the cover and insert your images of special occasions. Once you release the covers, the spring-loaded spine securely grips the paper, meaning no messy gluing required and you can swap the photos as often as you like. Easy!
The possibilities are endless
We all know they can speak ‘a thousand words,’ but we think photographs really do make the picture-perfect gift. There are so many ways you can make the most of priceless memories through inventive gifts – make your own keyring, wear it on a t-shirt, or print it on a cushion! Whatever you decide, you can be sure that the person receiving it will love having such a personal memory that they can enjoy all the time, rather than just trawling through their Facebook albums!
