How to Personalise Your Gifts with Photo Prints

Show your loved ones how much you appreciate them this Christmas. Giving gifts is a great way to express to those closest to you how grateful and thankful you are to have them in your life. That’s why we feel that gift wrapping is just as important as the gift itself! Show them you care with an added personal touch to your Christmas gift wrapping this year and make your gifts stand out from under the tree with our alternative gift-wrapping ideas.

Personalise with Photo Prints

  • Glue (or a hole punch)
  • Glitter (optional!)

Wrap your gifts in a simple, contemporary wrapping paper, such as plain silver, gold, or even brown paper (but the choice is up to you!). Order photo prints of the recipient, whether it’s a beautiful shot of them on their own or a favourite photo of the two of you so they know who it’s from. We recommend using the classic 6 x 4” Photo Prints for larger presents to really make it stand out. Punch a hole in one of the corners of the photo print and thread string or ribbon through it to create your own personalised gift label, perfect for writing a personal message on the back. Alternatively, you can use glue and stick the photo print directly onto the gift – they’ll know who it’s for as their face is on it! Customise it further with some glitter to bring some festive pizazz to your gifts.

Make Things Simple with Photo Stickers

If you don’t want the mess and fuss of using glue or string, why not opt for a selection of Photo Stickers? These are a great option for applying unique photos directly onto the presents without hassle, whilst giving your wrapped gifts a personal touch. You can also add text and clipart to personalise it further. For example, create a photo sticker “From Santa” with space to write a name – the perfect personalised gift tag for the kids presents this year! Add a ribbon or bow in Christmas hues, like dark green, red or gold to make it extra special too.

One for the Book Lovers

Books are a really great gift for Christmas with the added bonus that they are pretty easy to wrap! Make their personalised gift tag go further with a strip of Mini Prints that will also double up as a bookmark. Simply create a collage of meaningful photos and add text, such as their name or a fitting quote and voila! Use string or ribbon and attach your mini prints with a clip for the perfect personalised gift that won’t break the bank.

Alternative Gift Tag Idea with Polaroid Prints

One of our favourite ways to make a gift extra special is to use Retro Prints. Have your favourite photos with that special someone printed in this retro style (if you have wintery or festive-themed photos together - even better!) The white space at the bottom of these Polaroid-style prints is perfect for writing a personalised note to your loved ones, creating an ideal Christmas gift tag. What’s more, they also make a great keepsake too.

Create Your Own Gift Vouchers

Whether you’ve booked a weekend getaway, a spa day or a trip abroad, surprise your loved one in the best way with a personalised gift voucher. Simply choose your favourite photo together and customise it with text to reveal what you’ve treated them to. You can do this from one of our handy CEWE Photostations in store by transferring your photos straight from your smartphone or other media storage. We recommend using our stylish Fine Art Prints or Square Prints design templates to add your personalised voucher text and print instantly in store, ready to take home the same day! Perfect for those last-minute personalised gifts.

Don’t forget you can also order your Photo Prints on-the-go with our Boots Photo app. Choose photos that mean the most to you and your loved ones and make their Christmas gifts extra special this year with personalised gift tags.
