Personalised Christmas Gifts With a Little Help from Snapfish

Personalised Christmas gifts

 By Cathryn from Little Paper Swans

 I don’t know if it’s because I’ve grown up or since becoming a mum, but I appreciate thoughtful gifts a lot more than expensive ones. When someone has taken time to pick a perfect present or card because they knew you would love it. I think that’s so much nicer than spending lots of money on something you hope that will like.

I of course had to have this bauble. Personalised to whatever you’d like. This photograph from Edith’s 13 month update is one of my favourites and it fills the acrylic bauble perfectly. It’s hanging on our tree and when the fairy lights catch it, it lights up beautifully.

 As for the beautiful card we used a photograph of us on our honeymoon I adore this photo. It’s so natural and that I think is the key to getting gorgeous photos. My top tip would always be to look anywhere but the camera. Of course the best place to be looking is at each other. My second, to be fair joint first, is lighting. It has to be natural light for me. No flash, no harsh light. Just glowy soft light, so get outdoors. Make sure you wrap up warm!
