Sending Christmas cards to your friends and family just got more interesting with our unique photo ideas. Gather the ones you love for a fun and festive photo shoot that you can use on the front of your Christmas cards.
Whether that involves some seasonal props, some beautiful scenery, or maybe even a furry friend, our unique ideas will make sure you can create your best Christmas cards ever.
Once you have captured the perfect photo, simply add it to one of our pre-designed cards (or you could even design one yourself from scratch), pop a stamp on the included envelop and send it on its way…
1. Keep it in the family
Gather your nearest and dearest for a family photo shoot. Take a look at our group photo tips to get some inspiration.
2. Matching outfits
Dress the kids in matching outfits and take a photo of them together. Christmas jumpers and knitwear will look perfect.
3. Draw on your creativity
Draw your own Christmas scene to use in your photos! Even those of us that are a bit ‘artistically challenged’ can handle a few trees, snowflakes and gifts – right? 😉
4. Go artsy
Take an artistic photo that will leave your friends and family a bit reflective this season. Use a photo editing app like Instagram, to make an average photo a bit more ‘magical’.
5. Give Fluffy the spotlight
Take adorable photos of your pets and give everyone a warm and fuzzy feeling this Christmas! Need some pet photo ideas? Check out our photo tips for pet Christmas photos.
6. Create your own scene with props
Don’t like to be photographed? Use props (like toys or figurines) in your photos to represent you or your family instead!
7. Get silly
