Once again, Christmas seems to have creeped up on us out of nowhere. This year, with looser restrictions and the world feeling a bit more ‘normal’, it’s a brilliant opportunity to make the most of festivities and to show your loved ones how much you care about them, with personalised gifts. Here we’ll take a look at some different ideas to hopefully give you some inspiration, just read on…
The days of disposable cameras and printed images are seemingly getting further and further out of reach. Everything these days is online but there is still something special about having tangible photographs that you can be used to decorate the home. That’s why, by gifting someone important to you canvas prints of good times you’ve spent together, or of their best memories, you’re showing them you’ve really put thought into it. You can find your ideal canvas print here, in various size and shape options, just click the link.
An Inscribed Item
Having meaningful words inscribed into a gift shows that you’ve gone the extra mile to make their present personal. For example, if you have a chef in the family, consider a chopping board that has their name or an ‘in-joke’ on it. If you know a jewellery lover, you could get them a piece of jewellery that has a special date inscribed on it. Really take time to think about what it is they love, and then find out how to get it personalised.
Make Something Yourself
Whilst it may be more time-consuming, gifting somebody something that you made yourself is often much more special than something you’ve bought from a shop. It is also usually a cheaper alternative to buying something similar premade. You have loads of different options with this too, so stick to something that you know you can do and that the receiver will appreciate. It could be baked goods, a homemade craft, a knitted piece of clothing, a painting of you and them together – anything that works for you! They will love the effort that you’ve put in for them even if it’s not perfect.
A Day Trip
Treating someone important to you an experience over an object is always a great way for you to bond. If you’re not sure what to do with them on your outing, then let them help you decide. This also ensures that you’re both happy with the itinerary. You can pose this by putting different options on a card that you give them on Christmas day as a form of ‘token’. List three options for the date you go, as well as where you go, what you do, and what cuisine you eat. This makes it fun for you too and you can look at planning together once they’ve made their choices.
By personalising your Christmas gifts you’re giving yourself the opportunity to get creative and to have a bit more fun with what you wrap up to put under the tree this year. You’re sure to impress everybody on Christmas day!
