Thinking of what to gift your family and friends this year? Good news - this years gifts are already on your camera roll. Using your photos as christmas presents is a no brainer. What better way to make the most out of getting those professional portraits done, and photos as gifts are something that are going to be loved for years to come - not eaten in a weekend or broken within a week. Below are some of our favourite ways to use photos we've taken as gifts, and ones we've regularly used for our own family and friends.

As our gift to you we have also included a free calendar template so all you have to do is drop your own photos in, print it out and christmas is sorted. It couldn't be easier.

We'd like to take this time to wish you and your loved ones a very festive and safe holiday season and cannot wait to see what 2020 brings.

Framed Prints


This is one of my favourite gifts to gift to my mum or grandma. Get one of your photos printed and popped into a frame so that they can enjoy it every day for years to come. A digital file is not archival but printing it out and putting it on the wall is.

My grandmother has photos of the entire extended family on her mantle piece, and both her and everyone who comes to visit enjoys seeing when a new one pops up.


We'd be more than happy to print and frame these for you, or if you are after an affordable framing place in Auckland, I strongly recommend checking out Factory Frames

Acrylic Blocks


The perfect gift for anyone who works at a desk all day, These small acrylic blocks are perfect to pop on a desk or bookcase and brighten up any office.

If you'd like to order any we offer these in two sizes.
Small - 6"x4" - $45
Large - 8"x6" - $85

To ensure christmas delivery we need to place these orders no later than 12th December so flick me an email to katrina@accentphotography.co.nz and we can get those underway and delivered to you.



A daily reminder of your most meaningful moments from the past year. A calendar is the perfect and affordable gift to share multiple photos, and will hang with pride of place for the whole of 2020.

We've made this process super simple for you. Just hit the button below and you will receive an email with our calendar template. All you need to do is drag and drop your photos into it, download it, print it out and then get it spiral bound at your local stationary shop. An awesome gift for under $10 and the perfect stocking filler.

Tree Ornaments


Putting up the christmas tree is my favourite way to get into the holiday spirit. Why not turn your photos into ornaments so each year when you pull out the tree you can look back and remember exactly how big the kids were and how much they've changed over the past years. Let each kid have their own ornament and it will make putting up the tree even more special.

You can order ornaments through the likes of warehouse stationery so get printing and give them to your friends or hang them on your own tree.
