Picture perfect photo blocks from Tesco Photo (AD)

Picture perfect photo blocks from Tesco Photo (AD)

24th October 2018 2 By Rachael Stray

A picture captures a snapshot in time and a photo block is a special way to remember that memory.

Tesco Photo kindly offered me an opportunity to try out their one day order and print service in return for a fair and honest review*.

My friends and I are all celebrating our 30th birthdays this year and next and I’ve been on the hunt for gifts so the timing was perfect.

We love taking pictures when we have a fun night out which of course we share on Instagram but it’s lovely to actually have physical pictures printed too.

I wanted to share a memory of our fun night at Bongo’s Bingo but fancied something a little bit different.

I perused the Tesco Photo website and the choice of items really surprised me.

You can print photos in a range of sizes as well as have your pictures turned into something a little more special and personalised such as mugs, phone cases, clothing, placemats and more.

I like to put together a gift bag of different little cute presents rather than just one large one so I thought the photo blocks would be perfect.

I saved the particular image on my phone and then chose the photo block in the size and colour I wanted adding my photo to the order.

You have the choice of size, colour and whether you want your picture landscape or portrait.

I went for the same for both of my friends and the same picture as I love it!

You can have the item delivered to your home or you can collect from a store.

I chose store delivery with working and being away visiting friends and picked a Tesco store nearer my parents so I could also fit in a visit home too.

You can pick one day or a seven day option whichever suits you better.

I placed the order and received a confirmation email a short while later.

When my items were ready to be collected I received another email confirming all the details.

I nipped over to the huge Tesco Extra in Kingston Park so I could also check out their brilliant clothing and homeware too!

My items were carefully packaged and bubble wrapped too and they were perfect.

I was really pleased with how the picture turned out on the finished photo block and these just finish off my presents for my two friends.

I’d absolutely recommend the Tesco photo website and in store shop for gifts. The site is really user friendly, the prices are really reasonable and the choice of gifts is massive.

I received the photo blocks for free but the cost would have been £7 each which is great value for money.

It was my friend Joanne’s birthday on Monday and she absolutely loved the photo block when she unwrapped it during our fabulous bottomless Prosecco Afternoon Tea at Hudson in Newcastle.


*Tesco Photo let me choose two photo blocks for a fair review on my blog. This review has been written with 100% honesty. 

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received these items for review purposes. The opinions expressed in this post are completely my own based on my own experience.
