What better way to bring some positivity back to 2020, than with these personalised prints from Asda. Jodie is back this month, reviewing some perfect family focussed gift ideas. With thanks to Asda who kindly gifted us products from their photo range.
I hope you have all started to feel the magic of Christmas with these dark nights and twinkly lights creeping into people’s front rooms. But if you aren’t a premature decorator like me, then I just hope that lockdown 2.0 is treating you well and you are being kind to yourself too.
This month, ASDA asked us if we wanted to review some of their personalised gifts and as an avid photo taker, I jumped at the chance.
What Did We Get?
Firstly, I decided to gift someone very special – myself! Hopefully we’ll never have a year like 2020 again. That being said I wanted to create a photo-book containing all my memories of the last 7 months to look back on. It’s a book made up of the mundane, happy and sad days. I went with the Layflat Photo Album. The pages are glued ‘back to back’, which means the images flow seamlessly and nothing is lost in the spine, allowing maximum picture space.
The experience of making the book was a lot of fun, not only is it a great way to reminisce; using the ASDA website was so easy and the quality of the paper in the book itself is impressive (200gsm and matte laminated for you paper geeks), considering all the photos were taken on my phone or screenshots from my laptop they are all clear and crisp.
Secondly, a present for my Mum. The A3 Wall Calander. It’s fully customisable, you can choose the background colour of each page and add custom text or images to important dates so you never have an excuse to miss a birthday or anniversary – useful for those forgetful members of your family! Again, like the photo-book the pictures came out incredibly clear even at such a big size which I thought was really impressive.
Overall, I’m really happy with both products and would definitely repurchase. I’m already planning a photo-book library and can’t wait to see my Mum get inevitably teary over her gift.
