We love to give thoughtful, unique and meaningful Christmas gifts to our family and friends. Each year it seems to get harder and harder to find the perfect Christmas present. This year we found the perfect solution and have designed some personalised photo gifts for our crafty friends.
Officeworks provides a range of personalised products with Kodak Picture Kiosks at all Officeworks stores and online, which allow you to get creative with your gift giving. There is a large range of photo gifts to design, including photo books, coffee mugs, mouse pads, coasters, key rings, and more. Simply transfer the photos you’d like to use from your Facebook and Instagram account to your smartphone, connect to the Kodak Picture Kiosk via the Kodak Connect App through Wi-Fi and you are ready to go. It couldn’t be easier!
We designed some A4 Calendars featuring 13 of our favourite photos from A Spoonful of Sugar. Each month features a different craft project, craft supplies or a recipe. The hardest part was deciding on which photos to use! Then it was just a matter of dragging and dropping the images into each month. There were a number of different calendar styles and templates to choose from.
Creative calendars are like giving a handmade gift but they can be made in a fraction of the time. Personalised calendars are a great gift for people to hang in their craft room or office to inspire them throughout the year.
If craft and baking isn’t your thing, you could fill them with treasured family photos. My Mum did this a few Christmas’ ago and made us all calendars using our childhood photos – so sweet and of course had to be kept after the year had ended. Photo calendars are priced from $3.99, with our A4 Calendars priced at $29.99 each. We were really pleased with the quality of the calendars.
Christmas Craft Cards
We designed Christmas cards that feature 3 photos of our Christmas Star Ornaments (you can find the tutorial here) and a festive greeting. We will package them with the supplies needed to make a Christmas Star (e.g. felt, fabric, applique web, and gold thread). These Christmas Craft Cards make sweet gifts for our crafty friends – they can use the materials to make their own Christmas star. For our non-crafty friends, we will include a star that has been handmade.
The cards are a lovely quality – they have been printed with a glossy finish on the front, and feature a matte chevron design on the back. Officeworks have a wide range of card styles to choose from and then it is just a matter of adding the photo/s into the template you have selected. If family photos cards are what you are after, there are loads of designs to select from.
