75 Of The Best Christmas Blog Photo Props

If you're a blogger, you're probably busy preparing your Christmas blog content, or at least beginning to plan for all of those festive posts you want to create for your readers this Christmas. I know I am! If you're planning your content, you may also be thinking about how to dress your Christmas blog photos to compliment your writing, showcase a product or subject, and catch the attention of your readers. As every blogger knows, it's our photos that can really make or break our posts.

When planning your photos, your first thought might be to start shopping for festive photo props, but you shouldn't need to do this if you already have a good supply of Christmas decorations and cosy winter homeware at home, and can go foraging for foliage to use as natural decorations. It's the one time of year when you will probably already have countless great photo props to hand, so don't start shopping for props before you've checked the decorations box or gone foraging in the garden or countryside. Save your pennies for Christmas shopping or an extra cocktail or two at the Christmas party!

If you want some ideas for festive photo props for killer Christmas blog photos, I've compiled a list of 75 great Christmas photo props you'll probably have in your home over the holidays (or can pick up cheaply as you do your Christmas shopping), to give you a little inspiration. I hope it gives you a few ideas!
