Christmas Gifts: Snapfish Personalised Gifts

Monday, November 24, 2014
I have never really liked personalised items/gifts until recently so when I saw the campaign/opportunity to work with Snapfish by HP on Bloggers Required, I jumped at the chance and luckily I was accepted. If you don't have the website Bloggers Required as a bookmark, then you need to! I was kindly given a code to use on the website and these are all of the items I made/purchased with the code. 

Firstly, I found the process of uploading my photos, creating collages and items really simple and easy; the photos didn't take too long to upload and they all turned out so well, even if the photographs were not the highest quality to begin with! I chose a 2015 calendar, a notebook, a mug and two christmas cards all of which came to less than £40 including delivery which I think is fantastic! 

The first item I made on the website was the *Snapfish Classic 11' by 8.5" Wall Calendar (from £14.99). The background can be changed, I chose the Joy of Seasons background. Instead of adding individual photographs to the calendar, I made a college and added it as one large photo which worked really well. The photo quality is fantastic, they are sharp and as crisp as they were when I took them which I am so impressed by as I thought they might be a bit stretched or pixelated but they aren't. 

Next up are the two christmas cards, I made one for my grandad and one for my sister. I love the christmas card designs! Some of the card can be bought individually but others can only be purchased as pack which would be great if you have a lot of family to send a personalised card too. I chose the *'Chalkboard Peace Love Joy Christmas & NY' Card (£2.49) for my sister and the *'Snowflake Boarder' Card (£2.49) for my grandad, both of which are great quality and easy to make! You can have the cards sent directly to the recipient or to yourself, I was a little disappointed to find that there an envelope wasn't included with the cards. 

I do have a slight obsession with mugs, ok, a massive obsession bordering on the ridiculous... but I had to get a photograph mug! I must have clicked the wrong option as I wanted a 'magic' mug that changes colour but I have a *plain white 11oz Photo Collage mug (£7.99). As with the calendar and cards, the mug was easy to make - the only difficult and time consuming part is deciding on the photos! Even though some of the photos I chose for the mug are quite old and not very clear, they came out great, in my opinion. 

Last but not least, my favourite item - yes, it is stationary and it has photographs of our latest holiday on the front, including photos from Florence (one of my favourite places in Italy so far). I chose the *Six Photo Collage Notebook (£5.99) which I think is great value for money! I am now using it as my 'blogging notebook' and I LOVE it!

Overall, I am so impressed with the items I received, the quality is fantastic (even if the photos aren't amazing), the designs are great and the dispatch time was so quick - I had all of my items within about 5/6 days! I would definitely recommend checking out Snapfish by HP for amazing, great value personalised christmas gifts!
