It’s that time of year again, the Christmas lists are being written and the Christmas offers have begun.
But wait… before you buy what you think they want this Christmas… you need to ask yourself one very important question… and this year it’s a deal breaking question…
Would it look good on Instagram?
What? Who cares, right?
According to digital media company Sweety High’s ‘Gen Z Holiday Gifting & Influencer Report’, 58% of girls aged 13-16 want gifts that are Instagrammable.
And it’s not just the young ones… 29% of 17-19 year olds and 26% of 20-22 year olds want gifts that will get them likes and follows on Instagram too.
Gone are the days of surprises too for the younger Gen Z girls with 52% wanting what’s on their wish list. Forget the list and letter to Santa… it’s all about the digital wish list now. So, if it’s not on the list… don’t bother, because it probably won’t look right on their Insta feed.
Yup… Christmas just got a whole lot harder. I bet you’re stuck for ideas now, aren’t you?
Don’t worry, I’ve got you…I’ve put together the ultimate list of cute gifts she will love and be able to use to make that perfect Instagram feed…
Here we have…
9 Instagrammable Christmas Gifts which are perfect for the Instagram Addict!
1. Marble Phone Case
The marble phone case is up there with the most popular instagrammed accessories this year. Whether it’s white, pale pink or gold, these cases combined with some cute personalisation make for the perfect ‘clean’ but classy Insta feed.
Notebooks, diaries, planners… whatever they are with the super cute hard covers… we LOVE them! Even if they are just used as a prop… Throw a motivational quote or a cute message on the front and pair it with a couple of pens and corner of your laptop… Insta-perfect!
3. Chunky Knit Blankets
(How comfy do these look?!) It’s the comfy, blogger-type accessory – throw it in the background of anything and it’s guaranteed to make the pic look wayyyy more Insta-worthy. Plus – you will actually wanna use this after you’ve taken hundreds of pics of it!
4. Polaroid Camera Photos & Accessories
A polaroid camera…. But Instagram is digital…
Yup, I hear ya, sista! But have you seen how cute those posts are with those little polaroid pics in? Pictures of pictures gives the Insta feed that vintage feel – throw a filter into the mix and you got a hella’ cute Insta post.
Try teaming up the polaroids with some fairy light clips for extra cuteness!
Yup, it’s the generation who use their phones for everything… but also have cute watches… because they look cute. Am I right? Yup…
Do you ever put a watch on but still get your phone out every time you want to check the time? Yeah?… me too. But hey they’re a gorgeous accessory!
There are loads of watch brands to choose from at the moment and they’re all pretty similar in design, but here’s a few of my favourites that are Insta-worthy!
6. Slogan Tees
If you haven’t posted a slogan tee pic, then do you even have an Insta? Like seriously, they’re everywhere right now. Those plain white or black tees with a word or witty one liner on is an essential on any Insta feed.
Everyone loves a good quote. And while lots of people post a quote picture on their Insta (plain white image with some swirly whirly text), a quote print or canvas will make your account stand out a mile. Especially teamed with fairy lights and polaroids scattered around it…So fetch! (Wait… is fetch a thing yet?)
8. Long Socks
For the ‘Sunday chills’ picture of your cosy feet (in your socks), hot chocolate, chunky knit blanket and magazine… And i’m pretty sure you can never go wrong with socks… can you?!
9. Fairy Lights
To give your Insta pics that extra sparkle! Drape them over your bed, naturally scatter them (spend ages neatly placing them) around products or throw into the background of your pics to give that cute warm glow…
So if you’ve planned a cosy Christmas sharing moments, watching films together and playing games, think again… Well unless those moments look good with an Instagram filter on…
Here’s to a Christmas of selfies and a million dollar Instagram feed.
