You know what’s really hard? Being in the moment when you are spending quality time with loved ones. You know what makes it even harder? When you’re doing something cute with them (obviously), and you’re trying to post an equally cute Instagram story while still staying in the moment. So what normally happens? You either A.) Save the content and try to remember to post later (and usually forget), or B.) You throw on a cute GIF, add a tag and call it a day. We all do it.
However, it really can be so hard to find a good GIF. Don’t believe us? Search “fitness” the next time you’re trying to post a workout-of-the-day story. A ton of great options there are not. Thankfully, we did the hard work for you. We tirelessly scoured and found the best GIFs the ‘gram has to offer. So, here’s what to search to find cute GIFs on Instagram!
