We’ve said it before and I am sure will again, Christmas is stressful. Once you are an adult there is so much pressure on us to make the festive period perfect. Present buying is definitely one of those worrisome areas. We have had a look at ways to make this easier for you and think we’ve found a fabulous one.

A Personal Touch


Finding a gift that is just right for a loved one can be difficult. Some people are easy to buy for, whilst others seem to become an enigma to us when Christmas draws in. Sometimes all that is needed, is to think outside of the box. Granted our boxes are now much bigger, making thinking outside of them a lot more challenging, but we think we have an answer. Personalised gifting.

There are all manner of presents that you can now purchase that are personalised. We don’t just mean mugs or jewellery. There are so many options to finding a present that fits with your budget and the person you are shopping for. You can get personalised cushions, blankets, stationary, calendars, key rings, photo books, t-shirts, wall art and much more. It’s no longer just a name, or quote either, you can add your favourite photos to the mix.

This can make a truly special present for anyone you care about. A cherished memory can become that person’s favourite cushion, or indeed mug. They even have deals on things such as bookmarks. Not only are they affordable, but they are fantastic to add into book lover gifts, teacher presents or to hand out to classmates.

Christmas Cards


We just adore the options for ordering personlised Christmas Cards. Whilst they aren’t technically a present, they are still something we share with people to let them know we are thinking of them.

You can pick from templates, or build a card from scratch, and again you can use your own photo. The cards are completely customisable. Change the text, font, colouring, placement and even add foiled lettering. Don’t forget to change the message inside also, get the kids to write a festive poem or simply say Merry Christmas. Your card can be as simple or extravagant as you would like, above all it will be certain to stand out.



All you need is a photo you would like to use. Make sure it is a good resolution, it will look better that way, but if in doubt the ordering process will check the image quality for you.
