Social media plays a huge role in modern day society and Facebook and Instagram, in particular, have become a popular platform for youngsters and budding photographers to show off their photography skills. But, once you’ve got album after album stuffed with perfectly filtered shots, how can you make those memories tangible?
With the increased popularity in apps like Instagram, more and more people are using their phones to snap shots of their friends, of sunsets and of course, food. Where once photographs would be displayed in frames on mantelpieces at home, instead they are now stored on social channels online.
For those that take pride in their photographs and want to display them in their homes, I have three creative ideas for a modern take on the humble photo frame.

Make your photos physical with stunning products from Printstagram which match the quality and magic of the app itself. Choose from printed squares, greeting cards, frames or posters and show off your photographs with pride. The Printstagram mini prints are particularly popular; I’ve seen many friends use this service because it’s just so cute.
The mini prints are a simple way to showcase Instagram prints and can act as the perfect gift too. They are polaroid style so have that vintage-y feel to them and the little space beneath the photo is ideal for writing little notes to friends and loved ones. If that isn’t a perfect birthday present then I don’t know what is.
My Photo Gifts
Create your own photo on mug gift for a cool twist on the photo frame. My Photo Gifts offers you a plethora of options for creating your own personalised mug. You can choose from photo montages and photo frame mugs after which you can upload your favourite photos on to the mug.
These are such a cute gift idea for mum or dad at Christmas or even for a friend. Cherished memories are so often lost on Facebook or Instagram so why not show them off on a mug which is guaranteed to be used every day of the week.
