Christmas Gifts for the Instant Photographer with Fujifilm Giveaway #HolidayGifts2014

If you’re like me, you’ve been hearing requests for Fujifilm’s instax mini camera’s for Christmas this year. I can’t say I blame them though; the bright colours and instant access to all those selfie’s and social media photo shares makes for a fun party. In the past we have set up photo booths with props during parties which are always a blast for everyone with a lot of smiles and giggles throughout.

Personally I feel like a kid again with a bit of nostalgia using my parents old instant camera as a child. Fujifilm has definitely kicked it up a notch, or twelve, from the good ol’ days with this line of instax photography equipment and accessories. Fujifilm aims to connect with and please your guests and gift recipients this holiday season and they won’t disappoint. I always look for unique gifts, gifts my recipients will love. One of the best gifts are the ones you can use right away; Fujifilm inbstax will be busy in celebrations this holiday with instant parting gifts and personalized photo’s for your guests. This sounds like a new tradition brewing and I love the idea!

  1. I would first take a picture of my dog. She is very camera shy, and has all my devices figured out. Hoping I could get a nice picture of her.

  2. I would take my first pic of our pregnant stray kitty we have been feeding and opening our home to on the cold winter nights.

  3. We had a new baby grandson born into the family in August.
    He is now four months old,smiling,cooing,surprised looking,head bobbing and drooling all the way.
    He is the apple of my eye and the star in the family
    and I will take so many pictures of him.
    I would love to take a picture a day of every day of his life.
    Merry Christmas!
