Snapfish review & 2 £50 snapfish vouchers to be won

This month on baby budgeting the theme is budgeting on special occasions.

We all love to take photos on special occasions don’t we but so often they are left lanquishing on the computer going nowhere, unseen, Well let’s kick off our themed month with a great photo soluition  that may not cost you a penny!

Snapfish have the most brilliant products. They cantake your photos and can turn them into:

calendars canvas prints cards clothing collage gifts fun & games gift certificates home & office photo books photo mugs photo posters photo stamps prints & pre-paids stationery wall art


I was lucky enough to be given a Snapfish voucher recently and if I say so  myself I made THE most lovely gift for my children.  I made them both a photo book about their wondeful Grandma.

Because it was photos printed on paper rather than the real thing they can touch these books to their hearts content.  They can look at them after playing in the garden and they can read them in bed at night. I’m not all panicking thinking precious photos will be ruined. Instead my children get their precious memories completely accessile to them.  I chose the covers, the theme, the colours and I chose what to write alongside the photos and in which font.

The books are totally gorgoeos. Excellent standard paper and photo quality and fantastic value for money . They cost just £19.99 for a 20 page book. They have bought my kids immense pleasure as they are completely personal  I hope it will always be a treasure for them and keep important, beautiful memories alive

Anyways those lovely people at Snapfish know mums love to take photos of their little ones and are often strapped for cash too, so they have come up with this amazing, generous competition for you…….


I have not one but TWO  £50 vouchers to give away from Snapfish ! Just tell me what you would choose form their range. Click here to visit their store.

Winners will be selected at random  by Babybudgeting  on October 8th at 4pm.

Good luck everyone!

    I would make my parents a calendar of their grandchildren. They love photo’s and although they see the children regulary they miss a lot which I try very hard to capture in photo’s.

  2. October 1, 2010 / 8:49 am

    I would choose a canvas picture for my favorite photo of my son the 1st time he ever cried at 2wks old after coming off life support his face is all scrunched up and he looked like a proper baby for the 1st time!

    October 1, 2010 / 9:25 am

    I love the 11×8 Personalised Cover Books £24.99 with a scroll pattern such a special gift, I have haredly any papaer copies of photos now and this would make a fabpresent for my husband of his children and our lives together. Then maybe some framed pics too.

  4. Hayley

    I am desperate for a canvas print of some of my photography… That would defiantly have to go towards one if I won a voucher!

  5. Louise strachan
    October 1, 2010 / 12:36 pm

    I would choose a canvas print as 9 days overdue with baby 4 and what a perfect way to display their first photo xx

  6. Sonia
    October 1, 2010 / 1:13 pm

    I would get a couple of photo books done for my overseas family of my gorgeous baby boy Maxwell who is 8 weeks old – they haven’t met him yet so it would be a lovely surprise for them 🙂

  7. October 1, 2010 / 2:01 pm

    I would get a couple of photobooks to give to each set of grandparents as they both live miles away and don’t get to see their grandaughter very much 🙂

  8. October 1, 2010 / 3:49 pm

    I think I would make up a collage book of friends and relatives who live too far away so that smallest grows up knowing what they look like at least!

  9. October 1, 2010 / 4:07 pm

    I would order a post of some of the wonderful images of the boys that NikkiH took at TheMads of the boys

  10. Jenny
    October 1, 2010 / 4:34 pm

    I like the A5 acrylic block – I have plenty of beautiful pics of my little one to choose from!

  11. Tamzin Sharma
    October 1, 2010 / 10:40 pm

    I really like the photo blocks, I have some really great black and White photos of my three boy’s that would look great. Also a jigsaw for my mum with her thre grandsons, perfect for Christmas!

  12. Ruralmummy
    October 2, 2010 / 7:26 am

    I would choose a canvas print (or two) I would love one for our house and one for my mother in laws as she has lots of piccys of the grandkids, buy none yet of our 4 month old daughter!! 🙂

  13. Anita
    October 3, 2010 / 1:25 am

    I want to make my husband a photobook of our honeymoon photos for our 1st year ‘paper’ anniversary present.

  14. October 3, 2010 / 7:27 am

    Oooh a fab competition indeed! And yes, I would “snap” up one of the photo books in an instant. I am currently doing “One a year” for the kids (and us of course!)

    THanks for fab competition!


  15. October 3, 2010 / 11:48 am

    I would love to have a photobook made to show off our beautiful addition to the family x

  16. October 3, 2010 / 7:06 pm

    Oh it is hard to choose but some photo albums would make great Christmas presents for the Grandparents!

  17. October 3, 2010 / 8:27 pm

    I have actually spent tonight going through my photos from the past four months ready to print – all 493 of them!! I have SO many things I want to do with them – I always put them in albums in the conventional way, but I would also love to make some canvas prints or maybe even the collage posters for a frame on a wall.
    In the past I have bought cheap photo albums and inserted pictures to make Lilly little photobooks of herself and her family, and I’d really like to make “proper” books for her and for her baby sister, when she’s big enough. She really loves looking at the books I’ve made her, especially the first one I made, when she was a baby, now that she has a little baby sister of about the same age! I also keep meaning to get a proper photobook done of pictures from Lilly’s Christening, and from Isla’s once we have it. It was an important day, but one they won’t have any recollection of, so I think it’s important for them to have a keepsake like that to treasure.
    And then there are lots of ideas on the site and floating around my head for Christmas presents for the family! Just so much that could be done!!
    But first I will need to get these 493 latest ones printed and sorted into albums – probably a full week’s worth of evenings needed to finish that one off! x

  18. Michelle (@utterlyscrummy)
    October 4, 2010 / 7:21 am

    I would get a couple of photobooks for our family back in NZ so that they can have a great book and see what our 3 lovely girls are up to :o)

  19. October 4, 2010 / 3:23 pm

    I would do exactly the same as Michelle! A Photobook for my mum. She only sees her grandchildren once a year.

  20. phyllis ellett
    October 5, 2010 / 6:57 am

    Got to be the 20 x 16 canvas print at £49.99, love to have one of my 2 year old grandaughter.

  21. Wendy McDonald
    October 5, 2010 / 11:22 am

    I would love a photobook using photos of my five children. They make wonderful keepsakes and are a lovely way of displaying your pictures. Too many of my precious photographs are just kept on my computer…I really need to get onto Snapfish!!

  22. October 5, 2010 / 5:37 pm

    Hi Becky!

    Fab competition- I made one of their books for the grandparents- they were really lovely quality and looked pretty professioal- so if I had to choose another thing I’d splash out on one of the canvases!


  23. Maya Russell
    October 6, 2010 / 10:02 am

    I’d love a canvas print of our family camping this summer. It was wet and cold but we were all so happy at being together, playing games etc. I have some great pictures.

  24. claire woods
    October 6, 2010 / 10:10 am

    I would make a canvas picture of my son’s first school picture as he looks to gorgeous.

  25. Hannah Beadle
    October 6, 2010 / 10:20 am

    I would love to have cards printed in time for christmas with my 3 children dressed all festive. It’s my son’s first christmas this year so extra special. I can give relative cards and photos at the same time a great keepsake for all

  26. Sarah Cooper
    October 6, 2010 / 10:56 am

    I would love to create a photobook of my children with my grandmother who recently passed away and give it as a treasured gift to my mum.

  27. Emma Fraser
    October 6, 2010 / 11:16 am

    I would choose a photo book of our recent holiday to Greece. Its too easy to leave the pictures on the laptop!

  28. Emma Howard
    October 6, 2010 / 4:19 pm

    I would go for the calendar as a present for my parents. They live abroad and don’t see much of their grandson so the calendar would be a lovely gift.

  29. Laura Pritchard
    October 6, 2010 / 6:00 pm

    I’d choose a mug with my scan photo on saying ‘Number 1 Dad’ for my husband!

  30. Claire Nelson
    October 6, 2010 / 8:17 pm

    I would choose the lovely calendars to give to my son’s grandparents. They do not get to see much of our 1 year old son due to where they live and but were delighted with a calendar we gave them last Christmas showing the ‘best bits’ of his year. Thank you for running the giveaway.

  31. Liz
    October 6, 2010 / 8:58 pm

    Its my parents in laws 40th Wedding Anniversary in the December, and we were looking at presenting them with the “memories” styled or similar photo book, packed with pictures covering their memories over last 40 years, and messages from family and friends near and far.

  32. vicky
    October 6, 2010 / 10:53 pm

    It is my partners birthday soon and i would buy him a personalised coffe mug for work with a card. They would both have a picture of the family on. I would also buy a disney princess notebook with my daughters picture on as it is also her birthday soon and she loves disney princess!

  33. October 7, 2010 / 6:48 am

    Thanks for this wonderful comp!

    If I was to win I would love to buy a high quality photobook for my Mum and Dad for Christmas. I’d fill it will fab photos of my little boy for them to treasure forever!

    Becca x

  34. October 7, 2010 / 8:52 am

    I would make a picture book of the kids for each of our parents. Since we moved to London none of the grandparents get to see the kids very often. It would make a lovely Christmas gift for them.

  35. October 7, 2010 / 9:02 am

    I would go for creating Xmas cards, calendars and small photobooks, which we did last year and were very popular with grandparents and other family members. Great competition! @Kahanka

  36. October 7, 2010 / 9:14 am

    Hard to choose because I love making photo gifts! – I would make a canvas print because I’ve never had one done before. I love making calendars for the grandparents too, and photobooks for our own keepsake of best children’s pictures (now that baby is born, we’re planning to make a photobook of her first year, just like we did for the big one)

  37. October 7, 2010 / 9:29 am

    I actually made one of these books for my Gran for Christmas a couple of years ago, filled with family snaps, going back to when my Grandad was alive, in his Air Force uniform. They are beautiful gifts.

    I’d choose a whole pile of the 3×2 minibooks, get them printed for us, and for Squeaky’s grandparents. My mum loves showing off pictures of Squeaky, so tis would be a great way for her to carry the photos around.

  38. Hazel
    October 7, 2010 / 9:42 am

    We have one big family album containing photos of both my son and daughter. I would love to do each of them a smaller “book” to capture more of these memories for ever.

  39. Laura CYMFT
    October 7, 2010 / 10:47 am

    I’d choose the canvas collage so I could have loads of my favourite photos on display!

  40. Lisa Jane Beechey
    October 7, 2010 / 11:21 am

    I would love to buy one of their canvas’s of my two beautiful children to put over my fireplace, so I can see their little faces smiling all the time.

  41. October 7, 2010 / 11:53 am

    I would love to buy the Canvas photo print as we don’t have a family picture.

  42. Martina
    October 7, 2010 / 11:56 am

    I would want a canvas picture… but can’t decide which one. There are so many I got that would deserve it!

  43. October 7, 2010 / 12:11 pm

    I would choose the photo book and use it to make a lovely album of my Mum’s recent wedding. She would be so thrilled! What a great competition! x

  44. Christina
    October 7, 2010 / 12:32 pm

    I would my mum a mug as she is addicted to tea.

  45. Thomas Brown
    October 7, 2010 / 12:50 pm

    I would create a photo book for my Father, of his niece & nephew, as he no longer see’s them, due to family issues. He misses them so much, & always asks about them. I’m sure it would make him happy, looking through such a creation 🙂

    I would also create a second book, of his children & the good times we have had with him. Again, he would be eternally greatful <3

  46. Helen
    October 7, 2010 / 12:52 pm

    I’d choose a collage photo canvas of family pictures to hang in our living room. I’ve never done a canvas photo before, they always seem a bit expensive (although these don’t seem bad value) and the collage is a really nice idea.

  47. shell errington
    October 7, 2010 / 1:00 pm

    I would make a photo book, still havent sorted out my wedding pictures yet!

  48. nicci cowdell-murray
    October 7, 2010 / 1:03 pm

    i would make christmas cards with my gorgeous kids on , or a lovely calendar for my mum and dad with all their grandchildren on it

  49. tara florance
    October 7, 2010 / 1:04 pm

    i would have one off the books to show the kids from being born till age 21 to give them on there 21st birthday

  50. L White
    October 7, 2010 / 1:08 pm

    I would love to buy a canvas print of my new nephew who was born on saturday, not only for his proud parents but also the grandparents. You forget how small they are when first born so this would be an ideal treat to remember such a special time

  51. nicole
    October 7, 2010 / 1:09 pm

    i would love to make a photo book with all the photos ive collected researching my family tree, yhis would be alovely heirloom for my children !!! x

  52. Kerry Walsh
    October 7, 2010 / 1:19 pm

    I recently moved 200 miles away from my mum and knowing she misses her grandchildren so much I send her a calendar every year with their photos on. She cries at every one as its always the best christmas present she gets

  53. Jo Berry
    October 7, 2010 / 1:25 pm

    I love the photo cards and will get some as thankyou you notes from the kids for their christmas pressents, also the canvas prints you really be a hit with my mother in law for her christmas gift. I got her the calender last year and i’ve got the a couple of the collage posters and also have give these as gifts to great aunts and uncles.

  54. October 7, 2010 / 1:27 pm

    I would choose a collage canvas – think it’s great as choosing just one picture for the wall is just so difficult. Having ordered canvas’s from Snapfish before I know that they are great quality and it’s so easy to arrange your photos and order.

  55. Gemma Jones
    October 7, 2010 / 1:34 pm

    I would choose a collage poster to put up in my children’s bedroom. I would include photos of them as babies and special memories from holidays and days out. Then I would do another one with photos of all their family members – Grandmas and Grandads etc.

  56. Leanne pennick
    October 7, 2010 / 1:34 pm

    I would make a photobook of my son’s first year, I have lots of photos but because of suffering with postnatal depression for most of that time I don’t really remember much about his first year. It would be nice to have a speccial keepsake to help me remember that time.

  57. Kat Dungey
    October 7, 2010 / 1:36 pm

    I have just had my birthday and my mum paid to have a photo shoot done with my partner and 14 months old son. I would love to put one of the photos up on a large canvas to display in my front room for all to see. If I got a smaller canvas print done then I would get something for my son, like a photobook with all the family in.

  58. Ciara
    October 7, 2010 / 1:40 pm

    I love the photo books, I make a small book with pictures of my little biy in as keepsakes for people at christmas and birthdays! At 2.99 they’re the price of a normal card you would buy in shops x

  59. becky
    October 7, 2010 / 1:52 pm

    the photobooks are wonderful! I would choose that!

  60. joanna laws

    October 7, 2010 / 2:50 pm

    My mother in law has over the years written a collection of poems for children. We have got the great grandchildren to illustrate this with their drawings. Now we want to create photo books of this for her to give to the grandchildren & great grandchildren for Xmas. The only trouble is that she needs a dozen of them. It will be a great keepsake for all of them.

  63. Hayley Todd
    October 7, 2010 / 2:51 pm

    I would choose 2 of the wonderful photo books with personalised front covers for my 2 little girls. I would dedicate the books to my grandma, their great-grandma who has just passed away. She adored my 2 little girls and it devastates me to know that due to their age they will not remember her or how much she loved and adored them. I would fill it with photos of their great-grandma and the beautiful treasured photos I have of them together with her where her love for them shines through. I would love this, so they could see just how special she was and how much they were loved by her.

  64. evelyn byrne
    October 7, 2010 / 2:57 pm

    I cant get my little boy to finish a jigsaw so i think the jigsaw pictures are a fantastic idea, i want one! lol. x

  65. sherelyn gill
    October 7, 2010 / 3:03 pm

    i love the canvas, i have a photo of my little man as these are timeless and people always say how great they are , i also love the photo books i do one for every six months of my son growing up to see how much he changed and they are great to look back on, and better tham pain boring albums

  66. Fiona
    October 7, 2010 / 3:43 pm

    I would create a photo collage mug for my partner with lots of pictures of our baby so when he is out at work in the cold he can have a warm cuppa and be cheered up with lots of smiley pictures!

  67. Agnieszka
    October 7, 2010 / 4:40 pm

    I would like to do baby foto book for my niece 🙂 because she is going to be 2years old this December!

  68. Amanda Carnell
    October 7, 2010 / 4:50 pm

    I would get a canvas print from our family photo session. Our little boy is 20 months now and spent the first 11 months of his life in great ormond street hospital. He has a rare syndrome and he now has complex special needs and night time ventilation via a tracheostomy. My husband and I are now on a limited income as we had to give up work to care for our Son full time. He needs someone with him 24 hours. It makes life a challenge but every day we spend with him is treasured. He is such a happy little boy and never let’s his condition get him down. It would be so lovely to hang a beautiful canvas on our wall for people to see and for us to cherish. If we had some money left we would order some Christmas Photo Cards with our Son dressed as santa for our special family members and friends. Snapfish offer some amazing gifts. I have many photo books of special events in our lives and they are fantastic quality and easy to produce. The fridge magnets are also fun and the mini photo book and flipbooks are great value for money and lovely for grandparents to show off their families.

  71. Helen Stewart
    October 7, 2010 / 7:57 pm

    I would do a collage poster for my brother in law who lives in Amsterdam. We don’t get to see him too often and he misses us too. I would design a poster with lots of photos of the family, including pics of his nephew and niece, (my kids) things we’ve done, places we been to, and as the price is so reasonable it would be a fun gift to send every couple of months to help him feel up to date.

  72. Tricia Clark
    October 7, 2010 / 8:03 pm

    I’d love to make a calender of my daughter so I can look back at how much she has grown. It’s amazing how quickly and rapidly they grow up and so this can remind me of all the ‘firsts’ we captured this year – first crawling, steps, family holiday, birthday, teeth, father’s day & mother’s day…and I would put them on the months they happen this year so I can look back on the calender and think ‘this time last year she…’. Makes me smile thinking about it now. 🙂
    If I had any of the voucher left over I’d make a poster to go on my daughter’s nursery wall. She loves looking at photos of the family and her friends, and it would be really lovely to have a poster up in her room so she can see them all everyday.

  73. Linda Hine
    October 7, 2010 / 8:11 pm

    I’d choose a calendar – a gift that would last for a whole twelve months!

  74. Di Coke
    October 7, 2010 / 10:25 pm

    It would have to be calendars for me too – one for each Nana. My boy was born on Boxing Day 2009 so I would use a photo from each month of 2010 for the calendar!

  75. laura strong
    October 7, 2010 / 10:55 pm

  82. Paul
    October 8, 2010 / 12:48 pm

    I would get a notebook done for my son as he has just decided (aged 7) that he is going to be an author and get disney themed mug for my daughter and perhaps a calender for my husband as he does alot of travelling and it would be something he could take with him to remind him of us!.

  89. Verlie Campbell
    October 8, 2010 / 1:43 pm

    Would have to be the jigsaw ! What a brilliant idea………Putting all the pieces together and ending up with a unique picture of my gorgeous grandchildren . Icould then frame it ..2 for the price of 1 !!

    I would choose a couple of Wall calenders, I would have great fun going through my photo’s choosing appropriate ones for each month.

  93. Sam
    October 8, 2010 / 3:28 pm

    A canvas print of my children would be lovely. I have seen others that my friends have had done and they look absolutely great. Looking at the print would remind me that on rare occasions all of my children can be happy together!!

  94. Helen E
    October 8, 2010 / 4:05 pm

    It would have to be a calendar for grandparents’ Christmas present.
    Also, photo thank you cards. So personal!
