It’s not often in life that we figure out what we are good at doing. If you have, then it’s natural that you’d want to make use of your skills whenever possible. If you have been wondering how to make use of your photographic skills to give someone a meaningful gift, the below is exclusively for you…
A booklet or album of cute, “unaware” family photos
A photo album is a gift option that you might have thought of on your own. And as cute and thoughtful as the idea is, it’s not the most ideal kind of gift if you want to give it as a surprise gift. You could definitely use your gift receiver’s social media accounts to help you out…and print out a few pictures that they have taken. However, this doesn’t use your own skills. If you are capable of taking a few picture “on the sly” when those who you photograph are not aware of what you’re doing, and then print those out using printing services, then the surprise factor adds in. however, remember that this means this has to be a gift you carefully plan out…and not something you can do in a rush.
Classy “themed” wall art – framed photos
If you’re looking for something that only require a few pictures in comparison to an album, or if you want something that will take less time than catalogues printing Singapore will take, then consider making your gift receiver a wall decoration. Select a theme that suits him or her, and with the help of a few well chosen frames, create your “art” piece. The best part about this option is that you could choose to take pictures of the gift receiver, or pictures that is purely artistic and have not much to do with the receiver; except for their likes and dislike.
Fun or funny mugs personalized or t-shirts
What do you do if you want to give them a gift that makes use of your photography skills, but you don’t want to make it too personal? For this, you can opt to choose something like a mug, a t-shirt, or even a penholder or desk organizer. Even paperweights can work well for this customized yet impersonal gift. Choose a picture that you feel your gift receiver will find interesting and/or funny. If you want, you can pair it with a quote that he or she always uses as well…!
The gift of your service; a voucher of sorts
Do you use your skills professionally? Are you a well known photographer? If so, a framed picture that will serve as wall décor that is signed by you will make a good gift. However, it is possible that you might not know what sort of wall décor they would prefer. In this case, opt to offer your services as a gift. Give them a gift voucher that they can claim; a photo session according to their theme and convenience. This too is a great gift for someone you don’t know very well, or for a gift receiver you are not very intimate with.
