I’ve briefly mentioned the Nixplay Seed Smartframe in my Father’s Day gift ideas but I wanted to do a more in-depth post about it as I love it so much and the amazing people over at Nixplay have also offered to give one away to one lucky reader.

The Nixplay Seed is an absolute genius idea. It’s a digital photo frame where, through the Nixplay App, you are able to display your memories with your loved ones wherever you are. Share them from your phone or from your social media accounts (i.e. Facebook, Instagram and Google Photos). Snapshots of 15-second videos of you sending your love message will definitely be a creative way to give as present.
It’s a great way of keeping your family up to date whilst you are on holiday or if you live further afield. I was worried it would be difficult to set up but it was so simple and the app is really easy to use too. You can change the settings of the frame on the app or on the smart frame.
I’ve set my frame up in my Mums dining room so they can see photos that we send to it. We are planning on going to France soon so being able to send photos and videos through to their frame will mean a lot to both my parents but Lucas will enjoy sending them too. The frame also has a motion sensor on it so it turns on when they enter the room and I’ve set it to turn off after 5 minutes of someone not being in the room.
I love that everything is from the app so no messing around with memory cards or unsightly wires, only one plug socket. The frame connects through WiFi and I’ve uploaded 67 photos and 3 videos so far and that’s only used 3% of the memory.
The quality is incredible too, the photos show in 16:10 High Resolution IPS Display which means nothing to me but it is really crisp, high resolution. You can also invite people to send photos to the frame so although I originally set it up and have the app, I have invited my Mum to send to the frame too so through her app, she can send to the same frame.
Nixplay are also trying to help the environment. They have started Seed For A Seed, a tree-planting initiative in partnership with Trees for the Future where they are planting a tree seed for each Nixplay Seed sold. Trees for the Future is a non-profit organisation that helps impoverished communities improve their lives by planting Forest Gardens, which provides families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, and livelihood options. Trees for the Future provides farmers with tree seeds, technical training, and on-site planning assistance.
