Instax Mother’s Day gift guide 

You know I’m an Instax Gal and with Mother’s Day coming up this week, I’ve teamed up with my friends at Instax to put a little gift guide together for you!

Capture those memories on the spot and saved them as a personal keepsake with the Instax line of instant cameras and printers. This Mother’s Day, here are a few Instax gift ideas for mum.

Instax Mini 11 camera bundle

There’s a good reason that the Instax Mini 11 is one of the most popular instant cameras on the market. It’s not only simple to get started with, but also comes in lovely colours to fit any mom’s preference.

With the Mother’s Day bundle, the Mini 11 is also one of the more cost-effective ways to get into instant photography. While supplies last, this bundle contains a Pink or Lilac Mini 11 camera, a case, a strap, and a pack of ten Instax Mini prints, all for R1 499.

Instax Link Wide printer

If your mum collects all her pics on her phone, the Instax Connect Wide printer isa great printing choice. It’s also one of my faves! This printer connects to a smartphone in seconds and prints images in 90 seconds. T

The best part? These are Wide format photographs, which are double the size of Instax Mini film.

The Instax link Wide is available R2 599, with a box of ten Wide prints that will set you back around R180.

Instax Mini 40 camera

The Mini 11 is popular among Instax lovers, but the Mini 40 is a great option for people who prefer a more retro look and feel. The Mini 40 offers a bit of elegance with its textured black and chrome design, as well as better automatic exposure and a selfie/close-up option.

The Instax Mini 40 is also very simple to use camera and retails for R1 400. There is a bundle available now priced at around R 1 749. It comes with a camera bag, a strap, and a pack of Instax Mini film.

Fujifilm Print-A-Photie app

And if you’re not in the market for a camera just yet… the consider getting some pics printed. The Fujifilm Print-A-Photie app lets you select your favourite family photos from your smartphone and send them to be printed at a photo print shop near you.

There are a variety of print sizes to pick from, and you can pay in-store or through the app.

Your images will be ready and waiting for you at the shop if you pay with the app.

Another option would be to have the images delivered to Mom’s front door for an additional fee. Go to your favourite smartphone app store and look for “Print-A-Photie.”
