Both the grandmothers has often told me that all they actually want for any gift is some form of photos of the kids. Hence we have done calenders, photo books, handmade canvasses, printed water bottles, handbags etc. This year I hit a bit of an inspiration. One of the guys in the office went past the Consol shop the other day and I asked him to pick up a few Solar jars for me (nope, I got nothing from Consol for this - this post is not sponsored in any way - wish they would send me a few but alas ). Then I added a simple little something to it to make it a wow gift.
Step 1: Buy a Solar jar for R130 (Also available at Pick n Pay for about R60 more per jar)
Step 2 : Compile photos into one image (9 x 22cm works perfectly) I used Photoshop
Step 5: See granny smile astonished about a lovely photo gift of her grand kids and an emergency light in one.
