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!

Sleek, stylish and compact to make the perfect accessory for any outfit or outing. I love the colours of the instax mini 8 but this one just speaks to me in it’s classic more grownup form. This would make a beautiful gift for any of those trendy or hard to find recipients on your list.

Luckily we’re giving one away below and you should enter for a chance to win BUT you should also run out and buy one for the deserving kiddo on your list. Emerging bright eyed and bushy tailed on Christmas morning to find this under the tree. I’d say you might even get a hug from that moody teen for this one. Snicker. We can try.

  • instax mini 8 automatically determines the best brightness for taking a picture, and informs you of the suitable setting by lighting the corresponding lamp.

This instax SHARE Smartphone Printer is definitely on my Christmas list. Everyone takes pictures on their smartphones; these days and I know this compact little buddy would be extremely popular with all who own a smartphone, especially the teens! How fun would this printer be at parties? Your guests can snap pictures all night long and before they leave, pick their favourites, print and head home with souvenirs. I know I would love that!


Key Features

  • “Real Time Template” takes a photo with the date, place, weather, temperature, and humidity indicated in the frame.
  • Limited Editions – Each print is numbered so it looks like a limited item. A memory shared with people you cherish will be even more precious.
  • Template for printing images uploaded to social networking (SNS) service. With the profile photo and the number of likes indicated, the print offers great fun in tandem with SNS.
  • Template that fits the photo cropped into a square. It is possible to write your feelings and messages to make the memory more vivid.
  • Different designs to fit the occasion, whether Mother’s Day, a birthday, a greeting to mark the season, “Best wishes!”
  • The Fujifilm Intelligence Filter uses an optimum processing technology, Image Intelligence™, which is based on Fujifilm’s 80 years of experience and ever-advancing know-how. The technology gives real results — for example, to brighten up a photo that turned out too dark.
  • With FUJIFILM digital cameras, you can make instax prints by sending the images directly from your camera to “instax SHARE”.
  • You can now share the images that you can only achieve with digital cameras, such as children and pet images captured at fast shutter speed, or food and flower images with blurred backgrounds, by making them into instax prints on the spot.






Point, click, upload to the instax SHARE printer….easy as 1, 2; 3 in less than 16 seconds! I have so many ideas brewing in me head over this. Thinking gifts, these instant pictures would make great gift tags or tags on homemade DIY gifts; sometimes the personal touch is the most heartfelt and special.
