3 Ways to Surprise a Friend with a Photo Gift

Written By Bianca Bouwmeeser Neumann On 23 Oct 2015

Make a friends day by sending them an unforgettable photo gift. Here’s 3 ideas to get you thinking.

Idea number 1: Decorate their desk
Get access to your friends desk when they’re not there, add a cute little photo gift and complete the surprise with streamers, balloons and even confetti and cake!
If their colleagues didn’t know they were celebrating something before, they will now.
Which product?
Stand a 30x30cm Big1s photo block on their desk or shelf, or order a larger framed print for their wall. Full product price list here for more product choices.

Idea number 2: Trip down memory lane
Create a photo collage print (tips here), you can either use your own pics or download some of your friends images from their social platforms. A personal gift will always be treasured, start gathering images from a shared experience or from the moment you met, perhaps a trip you did together or from a time that means something special to only the two of you. Finish this gift up by wrapping it with keepstakes or old momentos (we know you kept that concert ticket!).
Which product?
We love the Black Contemporary Frame for this gift idea, the frame profile suits most image types and it’s a safe bet for most decor themes too.

Idea number 3: Gratitude list
Turn the things you love about your mom, husband, boss or child into a printed gratitude list.
Which product?
Go with a Budget Stretched Canvas print for this gift. It’s not certified archival like our Premium Stretched Canvas prints but is still of exceptional quality, stretched over the same hand-made wooden frame and is suitable for most uses.  You’ll have to go with a Premium Stretched Canvas if you’d like to choose your own border colour/effect (Budget only available with white borders) or if you’re looking for a custom size (Budget only available in standard sizes).

You could also just stick up a loose print with decorators tape!

Fast, friendly and professional service. From placing the order online to reciving the order, which only took 5 days, I was updated regularly on my order throughout the process. The canvas prints and faceblocks are excellent quality. I highly recommend PrintWild, if your a professional photographer or just want to print some family pics. They are the best! Keep up the great work!

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
