In the Ideal Gifts series, The Next Web team shares personal recommendations for gifts to give this holiday season.
I’m not above admitting that I represent the Millennial generation at The Next Web. It’s not like I chose to be born the year I was!
If you’ve got that young’n in your life to please this holiday season, take the opportunity to teach them that memories are not disposable, and not every photo needs to disappear Snapchat-style. It’s my love for the physical reminders of life’s precious moments that brings the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 up to the top of my Christmas list.
What’s not to love? All the fun of instant cameras wrapped in a retro, vintage-inspired casing. In this updated version of the Fujifilm Instax, the Neo Classic edition rocks a rechargeable battery, so no more fussing with those annoying double A’s.
The camera also comes with a double exposure mode for “happy accidents,” and various brightness and shutter speed settings to capture light trails or fast-moving scenes. It’ll make you forget that Instagram was ever a thing.
Of course, if you are going this route, be sure to grab extra packs of Instax Mini film to help keep the memories rolling. There’s no better gift than nostalgia.
