I had a lovely call today from the dad of a now 4-month-old asking about framed images from their newborn shoot that he could give his wife this Christmas; we also got on to chatting through some ideas for grandparents too. One lucky mummy out there has a lovely surprise coming this Christmas!
I thought our chat might be helpful to others needing ideas of what to buy a special someone this Christmas...
Here's my top five photo gift ideas...
Perfect for grandparents... what better way to have a picture of your grandchildren always to hand ready to show friends!
I offer a set of two photo key rings (one for each granddad?!) for £15 including delivery.
These are always popular with dads and grandparents! Drink your morning coffee out of a mug with your favourite image on it - and it's dishwasher and microwave safe.
Mugs are £18 each including delivery.
After chatting with a recent newborn client, we agreed this would be the perfect gift for a Grandpa who was yet to meet his new great-granddaughter. Stuck at home due to Covid, he's been pretty bored, so this would keep him entertained and also show off his newest family member.
Jigsaws are 300-piece and are 17"x12" big once completed; they cost £24 each including delivery.
4. One for the kids
If your family have missed their annual visit to Santa due to Covid, then what better way to let your children know he's thinking of them, that with their own picture with him. I am offering these for sale for just £3; of this £2 will be donated to The Baby Bank who do a great job of supporting families in need all year round. All you need to do is email me a good picture of your children and I'll send it back in Santa's frame - we can even let them know if they're on the nice list!
Please message me for more details of how to order.
If you've had a shoot with me and you have a slightly bigger budget - this could be the perfect gift for your partner. So often I hear back from families months or years after their shoot, that they're yet to get round to framing their pictures. Let me do it for you and I'll even gift wrap it.
If all the above looks perfect, but your last photoshoot was a couple of years ago or you've not yet had one, then why not treat your loved one to a gift voucher for a family shoot that can be redeemed any time in the next 13 months. This is also a perfect gift for expectant parents. Gift vouchers can be purchased directly through the website here.
If any of the above are of interest, please get in touch. My last order date for wall art is this Monday (7th December) and Sunday 13th December for photo gifts, while the kids Santa photo and gift vouchers can be ordered up until Tuesday 22nd December.
