Happy Anniversary – the perfect wedding anniversary present!

June 27, 2013
Do you spend ages agonising over what to buy your partner when it comes to your wedding anniversary? Well worry no more! At PhotoBox we understand that giving your partner something they can treasure for years to come is very important, so we have something innovative that will end your struggles once and for all. Recently, whilst scrolling through Pinterest we came across a pin in which a couple had ‘taken a picture, holding a picture from the year before’ – what a great idea! Something like this will allow you to show how your relationship has grown throughout the years you’ve been together and all the different locations you had visited on each of your Anniversaries and more importantly, this is something you can recreate every year – genius! The best thing about this is that EVERYONE can do it! Whether you use your Smartphone, compact or professional camera, it will have the same effect and each individual picture within will be special to you. So if you want to try out this idea and make it your new anniversary tradition, then our framed prints are perfect. You can either use them as a gift for your partner, or create a photo wall where each print represents a year of your life together. Have you ever created a similar product? Do you have any other out-of-the-box ideas to share for celebrating anniversaries? If you do, then please share them with us at the end of the article – we’d really love to hear from you!

The map used can be related to the countries you have visited. You will then be able to make a complete collection with a specific map and print for each country you’ve visited!

Countdown to Mother’s Day – 3 Days to go

March 24, 2013
  So the countdown is on… 3 days until Mother’s Day, where breakfast in bed and a thoughtful gift are going to be expected up and down the country. But at PhotoBox we thought we would start enjoying Mother’s Day early, by honouring all the wonderful mothers for everything they do. On Facebook we have been honouring a Mother a Day since Monday, by finding inspirational mothers from science, television and film (so far) and sharing with you their parenting stories both joyful and some upsetting. Life sometimes really isn’t easy for mothers. For example Michelle Heaton (British Pop Singer) who gave birth to her first daughter Faith Michelle, in January 2012. She has since had a double mastectomy and reconstructive breast surgery, whilst staying strong for her daughter and husband when knowing she also has a 30% chance of developing ovarian cancer. Unfortunately her daughter has been given a 50% chance of inheriting her mother’s mutated BRCA2 gene.     But for the likes of Angelina Jolie who may not be going through such hard times, it must still be extremely tough looking after her biological children plus her adopted children. Although some may see her as controversial – it is clear that Jolie and her partner (Brad Pitt) do all they can to give underprivileged children and second lease of life, which cannot be questioned.     So if you’re interested in reading some more inspirational parenting stories then check out our Facebook page – http://on.fb.me/WuWpLH. We also have a Mother’s Day Pinterest board that includes loads of great ideas to get you inspired for Mother’s Day, so check out our Pinterest to be inspired: http://bit.ly/Z2wBBF At last, but definitely not least we are getting involved with Mother’s Day on Twitter. Follow us at @PhotoBox and check out the Mother’s day hash tag #PBXMothersDay to get involved.
