DIY Stocking Fillers with Snapfish and a Competition

photo gift ideas

Photo gifts are always great go-to presents, I love how you can find and make something for almost anybody you know! From selfies with friends made into special phone cases or a jigsaw for the kids of a special day out, everyone likes to be reminded of those special moments.

We were asked by Snapfish to create a few stocking fillers with their products and as I love to get creative I was happy to oblige.

Creating and Ordering

The difficult bit about creating a photo product is choosing the perfect photo and layout.  So this generally does take some time, but if you want it to look good then you need to think about the details.

Fortunately when ordering from Snapfish you can save your projects and come back to them at any time to continue.  This can be especially useful when you have to hide the photo page your working on when your loved one peers over your shoulder!!

Snapfish often have codes for discounts on their site, so pay attention to their home page in case there is a code you can use.

As with all personalised products it takes a few days to create your product before being dispatched.  However I still find that the products are delivered fairly quickly.

Stocking Fillers

I chose to order four different products for my stocking fillers:

mug stocking filler

The mug is for my mother in-law, which I placed photos of our last visit to them when we had a lovely day at the beach.  It holds great memories for our family and I’m sure she’ll love the gesture.

Instead for just handing over the mug I thought it would be lovely to fill it with sweeties and other goodies.  If you had clear wrapping then you could tie it up around the mug to make it even more special.

photo keyring present

Next on my list is a keyring, which is clearly a small and cheap gift.  But this would make a great stocking filler for a child on a set of play keys, a special memory from home for a teenager off to uni or even a gift made for daddy using one of the kids drawings instead of a photo.

photo canvas gift

A small photo canvas would be brilliant for a stocking filler and you can place whichever photos you like on it.  Snapfish also have the option to add backgrounds and text to make it completely personal.

DIY photo gift

Lastly, the photo cards.  My favourite and potentially cheapest of them all.  I created a DIY concertina photo book by making a collage of each month’s  pictures on a different coloured background, adding a cover photo and a map at the back, which has been edited in Picmonkey to put little stars on some of the places we have visited this year. I taped together the photo cards to make a concertina folding book.  This would be perfect for anyone who loves to keep all their memories in one place!

I love how easy the Snapfish website is to use and that you can create so many exciting projects, including ones that are fairly frugal and perfect for stocking fillers.  Check out Snapfish’s website here.
