Do you ever feel like some occasions pass in a blink of an eye and you don’t get chance to remember them? Then you need the HP Sprocket Photo Printer.
I’ve tried to get better over the last few years about printing photo books from holidays or actually getting photos framed but it is those little moments that sometimes go by and you don’t get chance to savour the moment.
An occasion like this happened last week when I was on a cheeky week away with my hubby for my 40th birthday. Brownies chose that week to ask my eldest if she wanted to do her Brownie Promise and as she had the chance to do this at the top of a climbing wall – she literally jumped at the chance.
Sadly we couldn’t make it but one of the Mum’s was kind enough to send me a photo of Lily at the top of the wall doing her promise. It’s not the most perfect photo in the world, by which I mean it’s probably not a print off and put in a frame kind of photo, but I know it means the world to Lily. This HP Sprocket Photo Printer makes printing it off quickly and giving her a copy so incredibly easy. You can even give it some snapchat type borders and add messages to it too (if that’s the kind of thing that floats your boat!).
You literally download the app, connect your phone to the Sprocket with Bluetooth – easier if you are a millennial than a 40 year old Mum, but then that’s who I would gift this to – you then edit the photo (if you want to) press print and off you go. A little photo comes out the bottom (which looks a bit like a (shhh) polaroid!).
You can pick pictures from your camera roll, Instagram or FB profiles and because it uses Zink’s heat-sensitive paper it doesn’t even need any ink. The little packs of photo paper are a little on the pricey side at £9.99 for 20 sheets but this is for fun and for prosperity after all, not for every snap or coffee photo.
I can think of at least 5 teenagers that would absolutely love this Rose Gold and White gift set for Christmas, it includes a photo album (although they may not know what they are) and a nice little gold case for the Sprocket itself or for putting some bits & pieces in to head out shopping.
The whole set even comes in a Christmas gift box with a free personalised code for a Sprocket Skin!
The HP Sprocket photo printing set is a must have for this Christmas and if you want to rush off and buy one now you can find the Gift set this week on Amazon for the same price as just the printer itself. £119 instead of £179.
NB: I was sent this Sprocket gift set in order to review but all views and opinions are my own.
