All Geared Up!
Assorted Flat Lay Props by IKEA, range of prices
An unusual gift idea for anyone else but us! Bloggers are always looking for new creative flat lays to add to their articles or social media posts. If you use the same props too often you end up with a stream of identical images which is not ideal to attract new followers. Why not get your blogging loved one an IKEA gift card? They have a fantastic range of low cost props such as plates, textiles, faux plants etc. to really help those images pop! Visit in store or here.
You can get cute photo props in all different places like charity shops. But you can find the things you are looking for online at places like Jennifer’s Cutlery. If you’re a food blogger or love a flat lay, then these kinds of items could make a great gift for you or another blogger – fun for a stocking filler too.
