Stocking Fillers with Snapfish!

Facebooktwitterpinterestinstagram

When we got together Hubs was a Science Teacher.  He worked long hard days, came home and started again as soon as he had stepped over the threshold.  He wasn’t in love with his job, quite the opposite, but he worked hard nonetheless.

His dream has always been to become a medical professional.  So when the chance came up for him to change his career completely he jumped at it!

As I am a SAHM, Hubs works hard to keep our family ticking over.  He recently started a University course to further his career, therefore spending a lot of time sat at his desk.

When the opportunity came up to work with Snapfish on their new range of stocking fillers, I thought it would be great way to deck out his office space.  On those days when sitting at his desk is the last thing he wants to do, these gifts will be a reminder that all his effort will be worth it!

Browsing through Snapfish’s new range, the first thing that caught my eye was their 11oz personalised photo mug.  Being the tea belly that he is, this is a perfect gift!  After looking through many different layouts, I chose to make a collage with added text.  I really like that you can add text to these products, it gives them that extra personal touch.

The next item I liked the look of was the personalised photo coasters.  These are a real treat, they came in a set of six so I pinched one for myself!  The finish on this product is lovely, it looks great and has a feel of real quality.   The photo on one of them is slightly off centre, not a major issue but it is noticeable.

I thought it would be a great idea to spruce up the office walls with Snapfish’s 8 x 12″ photo poster.  This is a piece that I will treasure, as all of the photos were taken within hours of each of our girls being born.  I just love this poster.  The print quality is good and has a laminated finish meaning it will last, unlike a standard paper poster.

My favourite item, and one that will sit pride of place on his desk was their 7 x 5″ table-top photo panel.  I chose a collage layout once again, being so snap happy means I have far too many photo’s to choose from!  I used the embellishment feature on this product.  It looks bright and colourful – a real picture perfect gift.

When it came to adding the stand to the back of the panel I did struggle, the slot was a little too small and the stand did have to be forced.  However, this didn’t take anything away from the overall effect of the piece.  It’s a real eye-catcher!

All of these gifts combined bring a lovely feel to Hubs’ workspace.  They’re bright, colourful and add a lovely personalised touch.  These products, and many more from the Snapfish range make perfect Christmas stocking fillers. The thing I love most about them is that you can display your memories in so many different ways.

Our order arrived within 3 days, well within the estimate of 3-5 days, which for personalised products is super quick!  Even with the odd niggle here and there I would definitely recommend these products.  I’m heading back over to Snapfish to start my Christmas shopping!

    I love these! My children got me a photo mug last Christmas and it was one of my fave presents! I also have a mouse mat and have used Snapfish for a poster for one of my daughters. I hadn’t spotted the photo panel before, though. I’m going to check that out – perfect, thank you 🙂 Alison x #MarvMondays

    Ow these are gorgeous, a lovely family keepsake. My house is full of coasters with my sons face on lol. Think these would make fab stocking fillers, maybe for myself! I could do with a new mug at work! I wish your other half all the best on his new career path! Very exciting.

    What a fantastic idea. I miss Henry terribly when I’m at work, but I don’t have much desk space to decorate it with his little face. But a mug sounds perfect. I can fill it with all my favourite pictures and hopefully start making my own teas, as the Costa runs are getting pricy. Thanks for the tips. Renee @peonieandme #bestandworst x

    I love little gifts like this. When my hub2be had his first birthday as a Dad I got him a nice little mug, now with baby #2 due it’s going to need an update soon so I will definitely keep this in mind. Such thoughtful gifts, I’m sure your husband is going to look at these and smile! #bestandworst

    These are lovely! I have to admit that I was never much interested in photo personalised gifts until I had kids – now I will literally slap their photo or handprint on any present going! #BloggerClubUK
