UNIQUE CHRISTMAS GIFTS
Christmas is slowly creeping towards us and I have been starting to think of ways that I can share my photography with family and friends.
The most obvious way to share favourite images is by creating a calender. Some great online places to create and order calenders are Snap Fish, Printer Studio and even places like Harvey Norman and Big W. Members of our club often use Blurb or Momento to create photo books too.
Another unique Christmas present idea is to go out and photograph the child who you would like to make a present for. Then you can use your images in frames for the family or in fun books for kids to read. Harvey Norman sell great personalized story books that could be good for Christmas pressies. You simply use their software to put the child’s face onto the bodies of characters like superman or a mermaid! Identity Direct sells books like this also, but they use mainstream characters including Dora the Explorer and Sponge Bob Square Pants. Mooo also has some great personalised cartoon storybooks for sale. You can insert the child’s name into cartoon stories, the design work is incredible. So fun! While that doesn’t include photos, it’s a hit with kids.
If a family member owns a 4WD you might like to have one of your images placed onto your spare tyre cover. Then everyone on the road will see your latest work! Outback signs allows you to custom make a spare tyre cover using your photograph.
I’ve decided after making that list, that I should approach those places and ask for commission! Have fun thinking of ways to give a photograph as a gift this Christmas! The links to the mentioned stores above will be on our blog page on our club’s website.
