Everyone loves a photo gift!

I love giving and receiving photo gifts. It's such a personalised and unique touch, and you can always guarantee that people won't be disappointed and won't already have a duplicate. You can never have too many photos!

I bought my parents and Neil's parents some lovely photo frames in Florida this year and filled them with our professional images from the Disney parks. I thought they'd be a nice memento as myself and Neil and I got engaged in Florida.

When I bought the frame for Neil's parents, I wanted to include a photo of Sian (Neil's sister) as well as myself and Neil, so I bought the frame below as it had space for three different photos. I even managed to include Winnie the Pooh and Tigger! I absolutely love this frame and will almost definitely be buying one for myself next time we go to Florida. I loved arranging the photos too and choosing which ones would look best in each slot then cutting them into the right shape... it was a bit therapeutic.




I know my parents' wall and shelf space is already pretty full with photographs of us as children, graduation photos, photos of  my little nephew and so on, so I bought them a smaller frame which could be put in a little gap on their fireplace. I love the little Mickeys in the corners! As my parents have never been to Florida, I thought it would be nice for them to have the photo of myself and Neil in front of the iconic fairy castle in the Magic Kingdom. It's definitely one of the most beautiful spectacles in Walt Disney World and Neil proposed to me near the castle, so it was very appropriate. 




While I was making photo gifts for everyone else, I obviously had to fill my own photo album so that I can look back at my own memories of the trip whenever I want to without needing to switch my computer on. I printed the photos through Tesco's website and was pretty pleased with the final results. Here's my completed 2013 photo album! I think I love Disney's branding more than any other company in the world.




I have a feeling that I'll be making lots of photo gifts for Christmas... I'm busy trying to find some inspiration! 

What's the best photo gift you've ever received?
