Last Minute Photo Gift Ideas

Last minute photo gift ideasLast minute, print yourself gift ideas. Personalized, novelty and cannot be regifted.

When you have great profile photos to work with, last minute photo gifts are easy!

If it's for Susan in accounts, Tom at reception or the new team member you pulled from the secret Santa draw, a personalised photo gift can be novel or practical and is always thoughtful.   Being two days out from Christmas eve, here are three quick ways to produce a magic, thoughtful gift. 

Tools you will need:

  • Canva (the free version will get you by)
  • The office printer, Officeworks or Kmart (but only for last minute prints!)

 

Create a magazine cover

Imagine being on the front cover of a magazine with a great photo and a headline, all about YOU! 

If you don't know your secret Santa well, ask a few colleagues a few revealing questions about your gift recipient, example:

  • What are they awesome at? 
  • Why were they chosen for the job they are in?
  • What do they think you could learn from that person?
  • Be literal!  If they were to grace the cover of a magazine, what would the headline be?

Create your cover using Canva by searching 'magazine cover' and use one of their easy to use templates

Print your artwork using 100gsm+ paper, gloss with a great colour printer.  You could also laminate it or pop it into an A4 document frame

 

Create a personalised calendar

A personalised calendar is practical and can also be designed to be professional or a novelty!  With you as the creator, you can make it to suit your gift recipient.

Make a calendar poster or a monthly (a page to each month) calendar where you can choose who will be the face of the month. 

The monthly page option, last minute, may require a few staples.  Pro Canva users, you could create an A3 format to fold and staple in the middle to make it look professional.

Canva has many options and the benefit of signing up as a PRO member allows you to easily resize any document you create.

Printing Tip!  Be mindful of the print size, the template sample pictured above is a 'calendar poster' at 42cm x 59.4cm.  The easiest way to find out what size your document is, go to 'resize' and it will show you the current dimensions.  Officeworks have a great copy/printing service.

 

Create a special video presentation

Elf Yourself

Elf Yourself puts your selection of faces onto the bodies of dancing elves with some serious moves!  It's great for a giggle and allows you up to 5 elf faces. 

The better quality the profile photos you have, the better the result.

Personalised gifts are the best kind, to recognise someone and tell them how and why they are important is a priceless gift and if they get a laugh from it that's even better.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday.
