OK mums, this is it! We’ve just found a way to save you hours of Christmas shopping. And avoid those shopping centres crowded with crazy-eyed consumers. We’ve discovered a gift that is so perfect that you’ll not only want to give it out to others but you are definitely going to want to leave a major hint that you want one for yourself under the Christmas tree.
So let me tell you about this gem. It’s called the HP Sprocket New Edition and it’s this super-fun, super-cool nifty portable printer that fits into your pocket or your handbag. You can instantly print 2×3″ photos directly from your smartphone or Instagram to share with friends and family when you’re out-and-about. You can buy the Sprocket online in minutes (yay, no crowds!) and get it delivered to your doorstep before Santa even leaves the North Pole.
A ‘Cool’ Gift For Kids
I love that the HP Sprocket New Edition is a perfect gift for all ages. You know how it’s almost impossible to buy a ‘cool’ gift for your fussy tween or obtuse teen. Well, Sprocket simply oozes the ‘cool’ factor. Your kid may actually shriek with excitement when they see what’s in the box.
We promise they will go cray-cray for it and here are a few reasons why:
It’s A Looker
The HP Sprocket New Edition is fresh, funky and comes in three high-fashion hip colours: Luna White, Pink Blush and Black Noir. It’s got a nice smooth feel and it is just so cute!
This baby is small – it’s hard to believe, but it’s seriously compact enough to fit into your pocket or bag. That means you never have to leave home without your Sprocket.
As Mums, we just never have enough time in our day and we’ve always got a to-do list that is at least as tall as we are. That’s why I love that there’s no waiting around with the HP Sprocket New Edition. At your kid’s ballet concert? Take a pic of your little princess, whip out your Sprocket, print out the pic and it’s ready to go before they’ve even twirled their last pirouette. Each pic is also a sticker so you can create a fun memory wall back at home.
“Snap it, Print it, Stick it” – it’s so easy!
We love that the HP Sprocket New Edition doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s all about capturing life’s special moments with a big dose of fun thrown into the mix. Using the Sprocket app, you can bedazzle your pics with stickers (mums love this feature but we know your kids will love it even more!) We are big fans of the new augmented reality functionality, which your hi-tech kids will go nuts for. Basically, you can print a frame from a video, then when you move your HP sprocket app camera over the photo, the video comes to life. Now that is cool!
And you can even get a concealed watermark printed on each pic, which allows you to reveal extra details (such as related videos and photos, Wikipedia facts, and the Google Earth Street View) when looking at your photos through the HP sprocket app camera.
No ink, no fuss. That’s right, the HP Sprocket New Edition uses the innovative no-ink HP ZINK© Photo Paper technology, which means there’s no mess, no running dry, and the sticky-back prints are great for scrapbooking, Christmas card-making or even pencil case decorating!
With the HP Sprocket New Edition, you can make a print party wherever you are. Multiple friends can connect to the same Sprocket via the app and everyone can print out their own pics using the same printer. And you can even create a shared photo album for an event on the Sprocket app, so your mates can relive all the photo fun.
The HP Sprocket New Edition holiday gift bundle gets our pick of the best Christmas pressie to give (or get) this year. It comes with the HP Sprocket New Edition, protective Sprocket wallet and 20 x HP ZINK© Photo Paper pack – in one of three festive gift box designs, perfect for that special someone in your life!
So, that’s my Christmas shopping sorted then. And if anyone is looking to buy me a gift this year, it’s no secret what I want!
