Candy Canes, Lollipops, and Gingerbread Houses: Perfect Props for Holiday Photos

The holidays are right around the corner and it’s time to get out your best ugly sweater and set the stage for family photos! Oh, we just heard that collective groan coming from the kids, but holiday photos are a tradition for many families and a great way to see just how much the kids have grown up over the years.

Whether you’re taking photos to be used for your holiday greeting card, or you’re snapping shots in front of the tree for use on Facebook, we have a few ways you can sweeten up those photos and have a tasty treat once the camera is put away.

First, make sure the tree is decorated, there are no burned-out bulbs, and the background looks just perfect.  Next, let’s get out some festive props… in the form of Christmas candy!

Candy Canes

Next to a decorated tree, the most recognizable symbol of the holidays is of course a candy cane!  People use candy canes as decorations on the tree, on garland used around the house, as a garnish for a mug of hot chocolate, or crumbled up and used in baking Christmas cookies.  So why not use them as a prop for some of your photos?  Have the kids pose as they hold candy canes, or take photos of them decorating the tree with them.  Then take some silly photos of everyone enjoying those candy canes – those pictures are sure to get some laughs and “likes!”

Gingerbread Houses

Gingerbread houses tend to capture the essence of the holidays, don’t they? They’re so much to create, and a photo of your kids all pitching in to build a gingerbread house will have you remembering your own childhood.  Add a touch of whimsy to your photos by saving one gingerbread house to eat and take pics of everyone enjoying this delicious holiday tradition.

Christmas Lollipops

Like candy canes, lollipops make a great prop for your Christmas photos, but we’re not talking just any lollipop here!  We have some fun lollis that are perfect for some lighthearted photos.  Our giant Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer lollipop is great prop for home photos or even taking along to the mall for a pic with Santa!  Looking for an even more unique Christmas lollipop?  How about one made from Marshmallow PEEPS?  Yes, everyone’s favorite marshmallow treat comes in lollipop form just for the holidays and with their festive colors, Marshmallow PEEPS Lollipops are guaranteed to fit right into your holiday pictures.

Candy canes, Christmas lollipops, and gingerbread houses are all holiday candies that capture the festive Christmas spirit and add that merry finishing touch to your family holiday photos. Your family will enjoy taking photos this year when they see what kind of delicious candy additions you have ready to be photographed and eaten after, of course!
