Decorating Gifts with the Kids

15th December 2021

Looking for a fun way to personalise your gifts this year? Take a look at the many ways Lucy Warner and her two young boys, Alfie and Hudson, decorated their gifts with the help of their very own photos. As a mum-of-two and lifestyle photographer, we’re lucky enough to get a glimpse into how they turn some of their favourite snaps into a fun and creative activity in the run up to Christmas.

If you want to create something similar, head to your local Boots Photo store to print instantly at a CEWE Photostation. In just a few minutes, you can turn your own photos into personalised gift labels to make your gifts extra special this year – even those last-minute additions! See how Lucy and her little ones used a variety of different Instant Prints to get inspiration for your gift decorations and personalised labels to use this Christmas.

How to Decorate Your Gifts

1. Create Personalised Stickers

Whether you want to show who your gift is for or be proud about who it’s from, a personalised Photo Sticker will be a perfect option! Create your own stickers with ease online or using our Creator Software, and feature your favourite photos of the recipient or sender. If it’s a special gift for the grandparents off the little ones, what better way to see their faces light up on Christmas Day as soon as they spot their pride and joy looking back at them from under the tree. You can add festive Clipart to your stickers too, turning them into a fun and creative addition to your presents this year.

2. Attach a Personalised Christmas Card

Your gift labels don’t have to be small and insignificant. Why not use a Personalised Christmas Card as a label, featuring your very own treasured memories? Get the kids to write handwritten festive messages or Christmas-themed drawings inside their personalised Greetings Cards, available to print instantly at a CEWE Photostation in store. Add festive wishes to the front along with Clipart and your own photos to make your gifts extra special this Christmas.

3. Send a Hidden Message

Instead of attaching a Greetings Card, you could also consider creating your very own personalised Instant Prints with Design, just like a postcard. Traditionally sent directly in the post to relatives near and far, you can use your very own custom postcards to decorate Christmas gifts. Create easily in store at a CEWE Photostation using your festive photos (we love using snowy scenes, Christmas lights or festive photoshoots with the family!). Then, you can write your Christmas greetings on the back before attaching it to your gifts. Secure your Instant Prints with Design to your gift for a hidden surprise message your recipient will love to receive on Christmas day. Alternatively, add a punched hole and some ribbon to a corner to create your own gift label.

4. Use Photo Strips

This is one of our favourite ways to decorate your gifts – with Instant Photo Strips! Create your own strip of photos at a CEWE Photostation in an instant, featuring up to four images. You can switch out the photo placeholders with text, such as ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘Love from [Name]’ to add an extra personal touch. Once printed, you can simply add a hole punch to the top corner and use twine or ribbon to turn it into a gift label. The best part is that this label can double-up as a bookmark, making it the perfect option for any book-lovers on your gift list!

Simply pop into your local store and print off your treasured memories as Instant Photo Strips, Instant Greetings Cards or Instant Photos with Design and turn them into your own personalised gift labels this Christmas.
