Easy photo gifts for a friend’s birthday

By Photobox on 14 June 2022

In just a few minutes, you can create a gift that’s really special and that’s sure to keep ‘em smiling until next year’s birthday. Easy and thoughtful? Winning.

Birthday gifts for decorating

Have they just moved house? Walls looking a bit bare? Are they always banging on about their ‘dream gallery wall’? Friends, it’s time to make that happen. We’ve got a wide range of wall art, from canvas prints to photo tiles, so you can blow up their favourite photo and print it in full colour.

Wall art is also the perfect way to add (personal) home decoration to a space. Instead of family photos, create yours with their favourite quote, or a pattern to match their room’s aesthetic. Better yet, head to their happy place – like the beach or nearby mountains – snap a photo of that 10/10 view and get it printed. You’re so sentimental.

Birthday gifts to enjoy together

If living in the UK has taught us anything, it’s that you always need a rainy-evening plan. Step right up jigsaws. Customised jigsaws, in fact. Fluffy kitten photos and beach-scenes are no match for a personalised puzzle with your actual face on it (and your friends’ too). Ours range between 49-2000 pieces, so you can create a jigsaw to enjoy together, depending on how patient they are.

Birthday gifts for new friends

If a ‘little something’ is more your vibe, then keep it casual with our mini gifts. Keyrings, fridge magnets, or retro prints are easy ways to show ‘em you love ‘em, without spending too much time (or money) on the gift itself.

Made to look like prints from a 60s-style photo booth, our photo booth strips are always a winner. Selfies work best for these, so open that photo album from your favourite night out together and get uploading. Why not switch your photos to black and white on your phone first to really add to the vintage look?

Next up, magnets. No longer just a regular fixture on your gran’s fridge door, magnets add a small pop of feel-good to any home (without expecting your giftee to display a big photo on their wall). The best bit? They’re thin enough to fit in a birthday card, so you won’t even need to wrap them.
