One Gift To Please An Entire Family (Including Lots Of Laughter)

We all know how painful Christmas shopping is.

There are so many different people in the world who try Christmas differently.
Some people start Christmas shopping as soon as the Autumn starts, others start straight after Christmas passes and the new year comes in. Others (like myself) leave it to the last month and handle Christmas by avoiding shops and ordering online, or taking a long and painful Christmas eve to do the last minute everything.

When it comes to families, it seems like we write a list out for everyone, but what if you can get all your family with not only ONE gift, but something sentimental?

I recently saw a photo article of two brothers, reenacting their childhood photos, using similar clothes and backgrounds almost exact to the ones in their childhood photos. I jokingly told my boyfriend he should do the same with his brothers for Christmas, a couple of nudges here and there and we really did it! 

First off, anyone can do this, as long as you know someone with a decent camera and some (hopefully hilarious) childhood photos.

Secondly if you are helping, watching the photos or even taking the photos? Is absolutely hilarious. I watched my boyfriend put on his sister in laws crop top just to get the right colour shirt and seeing his brothers do big cheesy grins with mouthfuls of bread put me in stitches. Trying to hold my camera straight whilst a 22 year old man lay across his 25 and 27 year old brothers wrapped in a blanket like he's a few months old again? You can only imagine it!

Putting the new photos next to the old and going online to put them into a book is easy peasy! All you have to do is wait!

This gift not only becomes something fun for you to take part in, but can be a gift for mum and dad, nans and grandads, aunts and uncles! It really hits the nail on the head!

When I get back home, I'll include a couple of photos!
