christmas gift inspiration #3

Last-minute gift shopping is the best. Especially when you can do it online, or find other ways to avoid those Big Nasty Shopping Centres. 😉

So, here are two final gift ideas for you. One is from us, one is not. Both can be purchased at the last minute, without leaving your house/office/internet cafe.

Please read to the end. There’s a killer twist.

Portrait gift certificate: pay $110, get $350

It’s pretty simple, really. Give us $110 (the price of a portrait session) and we’ll give you a very pretty gift certificate (embossed and everything) for $350. Your recipient will be able to book a portrait session anytime in the first half of 2011, and have their first $240 of prints covered!

Order by 10.00am tomorrow (Thursday) to have your gift certificate posted out in time for Christmas (free Express Post shipping), or call us to arrange a pick up until midday Friday.

RSPCA Guardian Angelship

We love animals. If you do too, please consider gifting a fellow pet-lover with RSPCA Guardian Angel status this Christmas. Here’s the spiel:

Sadly, Christmas is a time of particular need for the RSPCA. Every year, thousands of animals turn to the RSPCA for help and hundreds still remain in desperate need of financial support so they can find new homes.

You can make a real difference. In making a one off donation or a gift donation for a friend, you will join others in becoming a Guardian Angel to one lucky animal this New Year. Help us through this crisis and donate now to become a Guardian Angel.

The twist

Here’s the twist: if you spend $100 or more on an RSPCA Guardian Angelship AND buy a portrait gift certificate from us, we’ll add a further $240 to your gift certificate. Just forward your receipt from the RSPCA to us at, and we’ll turn your $350 gift certificate into a $590 gift certificate. That’s how much we want you to donate to the RSPCA 🙂

And because a post about the RSPCA wouldn’t be complete without a pet photo, meet Hippie Dog:
