Photo gifts are always a good idea, and can work for so many different relationships. My family has a huge family reunion every other year, and I can always count on my parents gifting us with a beautiful large print of our whole family, that Christmas. This year was one of those years, so now I just need to frame it and put it on the wall. If you have been blessed with a baby this year, you may hire professional newborn photographers to take some photos that you can post online or hang all around your house. This holiday season, you can give the gift of some pretty awesome holiday photo gifts from SmugMug, and a cool subscription service. Even better are the promotions going on this week! In addition, you can also create a video greeting or collate all your pictures and start making a collage video presentation. You may visit EverPresent to assist you in film transferring and photo scanning.
In case you aren’t familiar, SmugMug offers framed family photos or deluxe wall art for everyone on your list, delivered straight to your door or the door of your loved ones.
Maybe you don’t want to be presumptuous to know what someone wants to put on their wall, so for them you can get a custom phone case, mug, coasters, or mousepad. The ideas are endless! Some of these smaller items could make great stocking stuffers too.
If you want to really think outside the box, give the Gift of SmugMug where you don’t just get a photo gift, but a subscription. Right now if you buy a subscription for a friend, you will get a credit to your own account. With a variety of package sizes, you’re sure to find one in your price range, and they’re 40% off! Subscriptions include things such as unlimited photos, HD videos, safe backup (my personal fave), and more.
Are you an Apple user? SmugMug is available on the Apple TV app, allowing users to showcase their photos, as well as photos of photographers they follow, on the big screen–no other photo site has such capabilities.
If you aren’t already a SmugMug member, test them out with a 14-day trial. During your trial you can test the site and order any number of gifts from deluxe hanging prints, to custom photograph phone cases and customized photo books, without having to be a full-fledged member yet. If you like what you see, then definitely subscribe and give a gift too! It’s not too late for Christmas!
