To me, 2020 has been more about consolidating memories than creating them. With lockdown and the threat of a global pandemic that posed particular threat to the elderly, in March, I found myself holding those in my home a little closer, anxiously worried and on the phone daily to loved ones outside my home and on my computer a lot, scrolling through old family holiday pics and reliving the wonderful memories shared.

Like everyone, we’ve missed the family getaways and braai gatherings in 2020, but I’ve really valued consolidating. Nothing like a threat to remind us what we value most – our loved ones, and flipping through old memories of good times shared. I spent the first couple weeks of lockdown gathering up those memories into photobooks and now for Christmas I’m going to print copies of a family memories photobook for the extended family for Christmas gift as well as a few spectacular pics I pulled out that I’ll turn into a wall canvas with RapidStudio and gift the family.

Here are 9 easy, affordable personalised gifts ideas to wrap up Christmas this year!

9 personalised photo gift ideas

Personalised mugs:
I love these! You can place for favourite static image on the mug or for extra fun there is the colour change mugs that appear black and when filled with a delicious hot drink the black fades to reveal a family photo or special message.

Photobooks: These are the ultimate Christmas gift in my opinion. There’s no end to the special themes of photobooks you can create that will mean the most to a special loved one – or my favourite – one book capturing the entire family  - a special family holiday or family gatherings throughout the year past – print one copy of the same book for each family group! I love easy, meaningful solutions! Here are some book ideas I love: A family holiday, Grandma/pa’s bragbook, a family history book, family recipe book, a story book, A ‘reasons I love you’ book, a fur family photobook, kids artwork collection photobook, and a collection of family selfies!

Canvas wall art: If you don’t have a lot of time, these are SPECTACULAR gifts. And super fast to order online. A large canvas for each family makes for an impressive gift under the tree and a beautiful, treasured surprise to unwrap Christmas morning! For teenagers in the family I love the shutterblocks.

Calendar: This is a hot Christmas gift favourite. No time to prepare – just 12 favourite family photies, easy to populate into our Calendar template and VOILA! A personalised, useful family gift that makes everyone feel special.

RapidStudio voucher: Think your loved one would enjoy creating some photo memories of their own. Someone in the family expecting a baby, wedding or special event coming soon? RapidStudio vouchers make awesome gifts. Now they really are the Christmas in one click solutions!

Jigsaw puzzle: Great for the little ones in the family. They’ll be delighted to make a puzzle of themselves, or a great way to treasure family that live far away – reminding the little ones who their family is made up of. Or maybe a personalised puzzle of the family fur babies, or their favourite dinosaur or digger – whatever the rage this Christmas might be!

Diary: A beautiful personalised diary cover to help you feel excited about getting organised in 2021.

Keyrings and Magnets: Affordable and special. These are great solution for extended family where the costs of gifts for a burgeoning extended family can balloon fast. A magnet or keyring with a beautiful photo of each child in the family goes in pride position on the fridge, enjoyed every day and makes everyone feel special.

Christmas decorations and cards: Personalised baubles, gift tags and Christmas cards for those who still love the tradition of snail mail or a hand-written Christmas card; RapidStudio can print all these for you and more, check out the SPECIALOCCASIONS/CHRISTMAS tab on our website.

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics. I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently. You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later. First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between th

Tiny photobook. Great impression.

Bigger is better We’ve all heard the saying “bigger is better” and even in the world of photobooks that’s true.  But when we talk about big  at RapidStudio  in the photobook business, we’re talking about the heart - not the product.  Creating, printing and owning photobooks are all about the memories, it’s all about treasuring your most precious moments and the people close to your heart. Small is beautiful We don’t talk enough about our Mini Books (or brag books as we like to refer to them).  As in life, we tend to overlook the simplest and smallest treasures and we forget that these small things have their own special kind of awesome.  The Mini Book is no exception. Our most popular photobook must be the A4 Landscape Hardcover.  It’s just the right size to store on a shelf, to leave on your coffee table or to flip through.  It’s not bulky, it doesn’t take up a lot of space but it’s not too small either.  It’s near perfect.  I say near perfect because it lac

Digitise Your Old Family Photos and Create a Beautiful Coffee Table Photobook

Ever heard people say that if their house was on fire and they could save only one possession, they would grab their photo albums? A family’s photo albums hold their combined memories of all their best times. As such, they should be looked after. Old fashioned albums lose their stickiness and colour over time. The photos themselves start to dull and fade. With all the handling of people browsing them, they start to fall apart and look shabby. This is why coffee table photobooks are the answer. Showing your family memories in a professionally bound photobook on your coffee table or bookshelf will take the pics from drab to fab. What’s great is that you can create separate volumes for each chapter of your lives: ‘Mauritius Holiday 2017’ or ‘The Kids as Babies’, etc. Each book can have its own look and feel to go with the theme or event it contains. It Is So Easy Today’s software and photobook websites are designed to be user-friendly for people regardless of their le
