Christmas Gift Guide – Gifting ideas for the Family

It’s once again that time of year, where we hear the words ‘Gifting Season’ and ‘Black Friday’ and immediately enter shopping mode. The problem with huge discounts all in one day, is that; 

One – we don’t always know what to buy and therefore end up buying the wrong thing and;

Two – we don’t always plan the shopping day effectively, which means things get forgotten.;

Fear not! We are here to help make things a little easier for you, with our Christmas 2023 gift guide for the whole family, the help you beyond Black Friday.

For the finest Mum and Dad

Mum and Dad spend their entire life devoting to their offspring; whether newborn, child, teenager or adult, the level of love and dedication remains the same. Which is why when it comes to Christmas they deserve the most thoughtful gift. Below we have listed some ideas that we think they will love:

  1. Hotel Chocolat Hamper
  2. Afternoon Tea Hamper
  3. A gift set from Virgin Wines
  4. A personalised Christmas photoshoot, with the whole family, and magical memories to take away
  5. M&S date night hamper;

For the cool kids

Getting a gift the kids like can range from something cliche and sometimes annoying! We’re talking about those plastic, bright coloured, loud toys that you can buy from any toy store, to something that’s outside of the box. Purchasing a family photography experience will not only give them a wonderful experience where they can spend quality time with mum, dad, siblings, cousins, grandparents etc, but it’s also providing them with a memory that they can look back on in years to come.;

Other ideas that we have come up with are:

  1. Perfume or aftershave;
  2. Personalised school bag
  3. A personalised neon light for their bedroom;
  4. A craft subscription box

For the baby shower

Purchasing gifts for a baby shower is such an exciting time, but the problem often comes with “what shall we buy the baby?”. So many questions often creep up such as, are they a boy or a girl? What if someone else has bought the same outfit? Do they need more sleepsuits or bodysuits, or both? Will the baby be born in summer or winter? You could always ask the mum to be what she would prefer, but often she may feel anxious to say what she really needs. At Venture we have some very special photoshoots that are tailored towards MUM AND BABY. So not only are you gifting for the baby but you’re also treating mum too.;

A maternity photography experience will capture mum in her most elegant and powerful way. She can have the choice of getting her bump photographed before the baby arrives, capturing beautiful newborn photos, or capturing images of both Mum, baby and Dad. The choice is endless and what’s better than gifting the gift of choice?

For the dapper grandparents;

  1. His and her watch/jewellery box;
  2. Personalised wine or whisky glasses
  3. A couples photoshoot to capture their life and love together;
  4. M&S food hamper;

And if you’d like to treat your pampered pooch or pet we offer a wonderful pet photography experience where we have captured everything from a teeny mouse to a fully grown horse. We can tailor your session to suit you and your family!

Happy shopping!;
