The thought of gift certificates used to bore me
I used to think that receiving gift certificates
or gifting them to friends or family
showed a lack of imagination and thought
a lack of organization and time.
Gift Certificates are impersonal
And a 'get out' for the lazy shoppers.
But that was the 'I hate shopping' teenager in me
The 'I start Christmas Shopping in September' Emma - So I had plenty of time to think of a gift.
Then I grew up (just a little)
and noticed more and more that my friends and family were actually putting gift certificates/cards/vouchers on their wish lists
I was even putting gift certificates on my list
I love to shop
and I love to pick out beautiful things for my new home - but don't always get the chance to.
Gift Certificates are
and give the recipient FREEDOM to choose
EXACTLY what they want
and WHEN they want it!
Not only that.
Gift Certificates can be a way of gifting an experience instead of a physical gift.
A gift that could be thrown or hidden in a drawer
because it's just going to collect dust and clutter the place.
An experience turns into a memory - that can be documented by way of pictures
Whether it be a weekend away in the mountains
A date night with hubby
Afternoon tea with your friends
or a boudoir shoot
any shoot for that matter.
Which can be gifted to you by hubby (send him a little hint)
or you could gift it to your BFF
or someone who you think really needs a 'break from life'
someone who deserves a little pampering
who deserves to feel truly beautiful
You could even make it an afternoon or evening of fun...
drinking champagne together
and picking out outfits for the shoot!
Gift Certificates allow you to gift the experience without having to secure the date.
You can purchase the entire shoot
or contribute a little towards it.
A group of you could even pool together to create the perfect experience
making it more affordable for each of you!
The Gift Certificates may have been purchased with the intention of a shoot and hair & make up
but if there's a sale on at the time of redeeming the gift certificate
you (or whoever the recipient is) may just be able to squeeze something extra on to it
Like a canvas print
Maybe you know someone who has already experienced a boudoir shoot.
The gift certificate could be for an album.
And for all those last minute shoppers..
We have eVoucher Gift Certificates that can be emailed to you for you to print!
But since there's only 38 sleeps until Christmas
There's no excuse!
Get the pretty printed gift certificates instead 💕
