“The best gifts in the world are not in the material objects one can buy from the store , but in the memories we make with the people we love. ” – Amanda Boyarshinov
While memories are indeed the most precious things we have, we can always buy a material thing to serve as instant reminders of those beautiful memories – a camera to capture the memories in. And not just any camera, one that captures the magic of the moment and seals it in a picture – instantly. I am talking about the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 which, besides being a really cute gadget, is also a great gift for your loved ones.

With the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8, it is love at first sight and for once, you would be excused for judging the book by it’s cover. The Mini 8 is really cute and comes in pastel as well as bright colours. Of course, I loved the pink but my boys both are demanding a blue one each! Budding photographers that they are.
One might wonder why, in this age of digital photography where you can shoot hundreds of photographs, scroll through them, instantly edit / retouch them and upload them on social media, would someone want an Instant camera? Well, for the same reason why a person would want to hold and read an actual book rather than a kindle.
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 is the “traditional way” of clicking pictures. You capture a memory and that’s it – you can’t tamper with it in any way. No editing, no adding filters – just the unadulterated, non-photoshopped, original moment captured for eternity. The romantic in me loves the notion of capturing the raw, pure essence of the moment which is one of the reasons why I love the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8.
The sleek yet sturdy body of the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 ensures that even a 5year old can handle the camera well and click a nice picture. The operations are really simple with settings to adjust the brightness / exposure so as to get the best picture. The clarity and sharpness of the pictures is impressive though, of course, there’s no comparison with a DSLR. The only drawback here is that you get just one print of that special moment – so you end up quarrelling with friends as to who gets to take it.
I guess by now, you would agree with me that the Fujifilm Instax makes for a really wonderful gift. The brand knows this too, which is why they have special Bundle packs for gifting which contain film, frames and bunting too! The Instax Mini 8 Bundle comes with the Instax Mini 8 camera in the colour of your choice, two roles of film with 10 shots each, 10 cute frames, a pack of stickers and bunting to turn your precious memories into wall art for your room. Isn’t that just a perfect V-Day gift?
So this Valentine’s Day, ditch the cliched flowers and chocolates and give the gift of memories instead – pure, unadulterated, non-photoshopped memories – with the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Bundle.
