For years I’ve taken photos of gifts I’ve received. I used to set out all my Christmas gifts on the couch and take a photo of them. I was so happy for each one of them.
Then I started to do it when I went away on vacation and I’d take a photo of what I bought. Probably weird I know. If I went away on a shopping vacation, I’d take a photo of all my new clothes on the bed of my hotel room before I packed it. It was fun to see all my loot in one place.
It also reminded me of what I had. Sometimes I would think…oh I didn’t get that much but when we see the photo you remember and are thankful.
I thought it would be especially important for my kids to see all the gifts they received at Christmas and at birthdays. Sometimes we soon forget all what we were given. Just show your kids that photo you took of all their goodies so they know they are blessed.
It’s also a nice way to see all their gifts in packages before they are all torn apart.
Here are a few examples of how I take a photo of all the gifts each year for Christmas and birthdays.
So remember to take a photo of all your kids photos this year!
