Christmas Gift Giving Guide


Eeek..Its almost THAT time of the year again! The Adelaide Christmas Pageant has been and gone,  the big man in red has arrived and we are ticking over into late November!

If you are starting to feel the pressure to come up with gift ideas for your family and friends why not consider a School Years Photo Frame? Everyone loves photos of their nearest and dearest as gifts, so why not present them beautifully in a SYPF.

We now offer so many different frames to showcase your photos we thought we would share our thoughts on choosing the perfect Christmas gift.

Gifts for Mums

School Years Gallery Frames

Our ever popular, original designs display every year of your child’s school photos in one frame. These are a great gift for Mums (and Dads) and grandparents too! These frames really become a talking point within families as the kids love to see how much they’ve changed over years as much as parents do!

Available in small and large sizes, consider where you would like to display your frame and the space available. Your photo sizes may guide your choice (check out our size guide), as too, if you have a preschool photo you would like to include (choose a 14 space - with preschool frame).

New designs include Gallery Frames with 8,10,12 or 14 5x7” photos – these are BIG and Beautiful! 

Deluxe Gallery Frames

Is mum (or dad) tasked with organising the family photo collection? Have they got special photos from an event, family portrait session or holiday waiting for a home? We designed these beautiful double matted Deluxe Gallery Frames to display special photos on the wall where they can be enjoyed! 

Gift for DAD

When we had work desks in an office, we loved to display the kids latest pic a frame on the desk. We think Dads (and mums) would love a Mini Frame sitting on their desk to show off to work colleagues too!

Available in Black, White and Oak moulding and 2 space or 3 space options.

Gift for New Parents

Baby’s first year flies by so fast! Capture the fleeting time and create a timeline of the first precious 12 months with Baby’s First Year Frame. They have 12 spaces for a photo per month and a larger central space for a happy 1st birthday pic. Available with pink, blue, grey and green matting.

Gifts for Grandparents

There’s no doubt, the kids pics are always a winner with the grandparents!

The Medium SYPF is a fantastic size to display all of your child’s school pics in one frame without wall mounting. This design is one of our favourites and yours too… a consistent best seller!

We know that many grandies have more grandkids than shelf space (ours have 8!) so perhaps a Portrait Frame to keep all the sibling current photos together in one frame is a good idea. You can gift each years new school pic to swap out and keep their frame current! This will surely a talking point in their homes J

Gift for Graduate

We think our Primary Years Frame makes the perfect graduation gift for Year 6/7s or High School. Display 7 years of education in one frame and present the perfect gift this Christmas!

Your precious, hard earned Graduation Certificate will also need a forever home! Our popular Graduation Frame has spaces for an A4 graduation certificate and a 13x18cm photo. Perfect for the primary school, high school or tertiary graduate! It is double matted and can be personalised with your details.

Gift for Dancer

Our beautiful Dance Frames are stunning! Many dancers have drawers full of expensive, professional photos wasting away. Why not display these lovely pics and costumes to be admired?

Gift for the Hard-to-buy-for

Not sure about photo sizes? Tossing up between a 13 or 14 space frame? Or just not sure which colour frame will suit someone’s décor best? Not a worry! We offer gift vouchers to purchase from our website. We will even customise them with your special Christmas message to your recipient!
