Christmas Gifts for Film Photographers: 2021

It’s beginning to look a lot like Film-mas! Are you looking for the perfect gift for the film photographer in your life, or maybe just fancy treating yourself this festive season? Whether you’re shopping for a beginner, a film photographer looking to experiment, a home developer or just need some stocking fillers, our 2021 Christmas Gift Guide has you covered.


Above is a countdown of the last date you can place an order with us to get it in time for Christmas- Sunday 19th December! 🎅🎄

1. Gifts for... Beginner Film Photographers

Christmas Cracker Film Bundles

This year we have made it super easy for you to get your hands on the perfect bundle for your film photographer. You have received their Christmas list and it simply says ‘film’ (that’s what mine looks like anyway), but what does this mean? What film? What format and how do I know it is what they want? With our Christmas crackers we done the hard work for you and bundled together a variety of films in 35mm mixed, 35mm black and white and 120 selections.

Each cracker comes with 5 films, a Christmas pin, sticker, an Analogue Wonderland pencil, a Christmas chocolate and a £10 Wonderlab Voucher! So your recipient can even get a head start on developing their film.

Once you know what format your film photographer desires- pick the bundle to match! The films are packaged in our beautiful Christmas crackers, so you don’t even need to do any wrapping.


Job Done!
