What’s on Your Wish List This Year?
Whether you love shopping for gifts or hate it, there is no avoiding the fact that when the festive time of year comes around it’s something everyone must do (unless your name is Scrooge). Significant other, family members, children, friends, co-workers and even pets — there’s something for everyone and it may feel like the list is endless. Let’s face it, knowing what to buy someone for Christmas can sometimes be nightmarish, but fortunately we’re here to help you!
The team at Kovol love a good shopping spree, so here is our top gift ideas for Christmas 2021.
Top of the pile for our pick of Christmas gift ideas is the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6. Everybody loves an instant camera and this pick is even more fun at Christmas because it allows you to capture the excitement of the day and create instant memories. The SQ6 looks stunning and is a more premium offering than say the Instax Mini 9. With life passing us by in a flash, and most digital photos staying exactly that — stored away on hard drives and clouds forever — why not have some instant photo fun and create real memories you can actually hold. Just don’t forget to buy a good stock of Instax Square film too, which is of course sold separately. Take a look at the SQ6 here on Amazon and if this is slightly above your budget, consider the Fujifilm Instax Mini series, with prices starting at around $69.
