Super Snaps Christmas gift ideas blog

The first Christmas adverts have been on TV which can mean only one thing…it’s officially acceptable to get our Christmas on! With that in mind, we’ve come up with 5 awesome ways for you to use your photos this Christmas. From Christmas photo decorations to personal photo gifts, we’ve got you covered for the festive season!

1. For your Christmas cards

Take inspiration from this creative customer and make your own Christmas cards, then add a photo inside before you pop them in the post! Whoever opens your card will instantly know it’s from you and the personal touch will bring an extra smile to their face.

Alternatively, how about using your favourite photos for the front of your Christmas cards? This is super simple with our Christmas collection – we offer both 6×4 and square greeting cards. Simply upload your photos and we’ll turn them into cards and ship them to you (along with envelopes)…all you need to do is add your message and send them out!

2. For cute Christmas decorations

Take inspiration from this customer and create your own Christmas hanging display over your fireplace. Adding snaps of your loved ones around your home will give that extra feeling of hygge, and who wouldn’t want cosy vibes before Christmas?

Our Christmas Retros would be perfect for this idea too…after all, you can never have too much Christmas spirit!

Surprise your friends and family with a frame displaying all the amazing memories you’ve made together over the year. We love to see the amazing frames our customers put together – and they’re fun to create too!

All you’ll need is a frame, your prints and some glue. If you feel like adding a little extra to your frame, you could also try putting coloured or patterned paper as the background to your prints!

For another simple hack (because we like to make life easy) why not try our Framed Prints? That way you can just upload your photo and we’ll frame and pack it for you. We can even send one straight to the door of your loved one!

4. For some fabulous wall decor

Set up a beautiful wall decoration for a Christmas morning surprise. Sure, you’ll have to stay up a little later to arrange all the snaps but image your family waking up to an amazing display like this in their kitchen! They might even return the favour with breakfast in bed. Just an idea.

This customer has used our Original Retro Snaps, but any of our prints would work. Just attach them to your wall with tiny little nails, string and some paperclips! The great thing is you can switch up the photos throughout the year too.

If you’re not seeing the person you want to create this idea for on Christmas day, why not make a box for them filled with everything they’d need to put the bunting up in their own home? They’re sure to love it, and can string the bunting up wherever they think is best!

5. For a gift to yourself

Take a little time for yourself over this Christmas period and start a journal. Our Mini Square Snaps work perfectly for adding into small notebooks, whether you’re reliving memories from the past year or printing your favourite inspirational quotes as you look to the next one! Oh, and of course, you have to get cosy for journaling too! Hurrah for Christmas.
