4 fun things to do with your holiday snaps

Posted on: 24 June 2015

Going on holiday is one of the greatest pleasures in life. And when you take your two weeks away, it is likely that you spend a fair chunk of your leisure time taking photos so that you can hold on to the memories of your holiday. But what do you actually do with those photographs?

Probably not a lot. But it doesn't have to be that way. Here are four fun things that you can do with your favourite holiday snaps.

1. Create art for your house

Most people love to have art hanging in their home. It's a way of putting your own stamp on your private space. So instead of trawling art galleries for original, expensive pieces of art, why not make it even more personal by hanging your own photographs? You can either have photographs printed out and framed, or for something extra special you can invest in canvas printing and hang the canvas on your walls. As you walk into the bathroom or glance above the television, you'll always be reminded of the incredible holidays you took.

2. Make a calendar

A way of ensuring that your photos are truly part of your daily life is to make a calendar from them. If you are not so great at crafting, don't worry about it as there are plenty of online calendar making services that just require you to upload your photographs, and the calendar will be delivered directly to your door. 

3. Give photo books as presents

It's so hard to know what to buy close family members for their birthdays, especially when you have exhausted all of the flowers and chocolates options and it's really time to deliver something personal. This is where photo books come in. You probably have no idea what to do with all the old family holiday photographs that are gathering dust in a drawer, so it's a great idea to collate the best of them for a gift that is extra special.

4. Make coasters

If you really want to make your photos a part of your home life, then you can make home items such as coasters out of them. Setting your morning cup of tea on a memorable sunset in Thailand is sure to get your day off to a brilliant start. If you have craft skills, you can attempt to make these yourselves, but there are plenty of online sites that can do it for you.
