Our personalised iPad cover from Bags of Love

September 7, 2012

Eliza vs iPad coverI seem to have turned into paparazzi mum. There are over 2,000 baby photos on my phone, and I never pass up an opportunity for another impromptu photoshoot (Eliza will thank me when her first boyfriend is round, right?)

So I was pretty keen when Bags of Love – creators of personalised photo gifts – contacted me to review an item from the site. I chose the iPad cover, but you can have photos printed onto a whole range of products, from canvases and bags, through to the more unusual such as the range of bed linen and even a deckchair. 

There are well over 2,000 photos of Eliza that I’d consider my favourite, but I picked two slightly different versions of one taken a few months ago for our thank you cards – we also used this other one – so although she’s changed so much since these were taken, it really encapsulates a particular point in time for me.

The process was incredibly easy. I sent the two photos over and two days later my iPad cover turned up. And I love it! The quality of the printing and craftsmanship is great, it’s a perfect size and the design is great for keeping small fingers off the screen.

Two tips if you’re ordering something similar: 1) as the image will be blown up to a bigger size, use a high-resolution photo and 2) obviously it’s all down to personal preference, but I picked an image that wasn’t too busy, with a plain background – which works really well. Here’s some more tips for taking good photographs of your children.

Thanks Bags of Love for the gift – opinions are all my own – and for giving me some great ideas for birthday and Christmas presents forever more. For your own gift from Bags of Love go to www.bagsoflove.co.uk

    What a cute idea for an iPad cover. I think most of what’s on offer is pretty dull so would be nice to spruce things up with a personalised version.

      It was nice to be able to completely personalise it – as agree that these things can be pretty dull otherwise! Plus I’m sure it’ll be appropriately embarrassing for her in years to come…;-)
