Here's how to make a video gift:


Step 1: Invite and collect videos from friends


To start, set up a private event page by telling us what you're celebrating and who you're celebrating. Your event page is only accessible to you, and it's used to add and collect videos, pictures, and messages from friends.

Submissions are collected on your private event page, where you — the video creator — can watch, edit, and arrange to your delight.


Step 2: Add videos, pictures, messages, and more


As media from invitees start to appear on your event page, you can add your own video messages, well-wishes, and photos.


You can find some old photos on Facebook or Instagram. Or find photo albums and use your phone to snap a pic of old photos.

When adding video messages, it's important to remember the video's purpose and the occasion you're celebrating. Here are some ideas for video messages that you could submit:

  1. Personalized messages: You could share a heartfelt message with the person or people you're celebrating in the video. It could be a simple "happy birthday" or "congratulations" message or a more elaborate message sharing personal memories, stories, or well wishes.

  2. Group messages: Consider recording a group message with friends, family, or colleagues to celebrate the occasion. You could all introduce yourselves, share a message or memory, or sing a song together.

  3. Humorous messages: Add a little humor to the video by sharing a funny story or joke or doing something silly related to the occasion.

  4. Creative messages: Get creative and showcase your talents by performing a song, dancing, or sharing artwork.

  5. Thank you messages: If the occasion is a thank-you or appreciation event, you could record a video expressing your gratitude and appreciation.

Remember, the most important thing is to have fun and make the video memorable and meaningful.


Step 3: Drag and drop in any order


Once you've gathered all your media, you can quickly drag and drop the thumbnails in any order you want. We suggest distributing the photos and video evenly, as this creates a nice flow to your video montage.


Say goodbye to complicated editing.

Editing is completely optional. VidDay offers easy-to-use editing tools to make your video clips and photos look just right! Double-tap on a thumbnail, and you'll see editing options available.


Choose from a variety of video themes, from birthdays to weddings, to help you create a personalized and memorable keepsake for any occasion.
