Great ideas for creative and personalised holiday gifts
With online shopping and next day delivery, buying Christmas gifts has never been faster and more convenient; so how come we still can’t think of something special to get our nearest and dearest? Personalised presents are a fun way to give something a little different and has lasting meaning to the person receiving it. If you’re looking for some inspiration for the last few people on your Christmas list then check out our guide for more creative and personalised holiday gifts.
OK, let’s get those wonderful artistic people sorted first. Giving art as a gift can be a difficult task, so why not opt for a Photo Canvas Prints for a more personal touch? In a world where digital photos are so easy to access, we often forget to actually print out our favourites and display them in our homes. Why not take the opportunity to do it for a loved one? This is an excellent option for families as you can select a group shot where everyone is laughing; alternatively a photo of the family pet is always well-received.
If you like the idea of giving a board game as a gift, we suggest visiting My-Picture.co.uk where you can make a photograph into a Jigsaw Puzzle for a friend or family member. It can be as crazy as you like; we like funny photos such as old yearbook pictures or embarrassing hen night snaps, but you could also get sentimental and have a good old fashioned family group shot.
Teenagers are often difficult to buy for as trends seem to change overnight. It’s safe to say that most youngsters have a mobile phone and a computer, so why not give them a phone case or a mousepad with a personalised image on it? You can upload one of their favourites from Facebook and get it delivered straight to your door for around £10.
This gorgeous Make Up Storage Pot is a handy little jar that most women would love to have displayed on their dressing table. You can choose from several different shades according to eye colour and add a name to make it even more special. This would be perfect for a budding make up artist or anyone who just loves to keep their beauty tools neat and organised.
If you know someone who is always learning a new skill and likes being creative then this Star Wars Crochet Kit from Firebox is bound to go down well with them. With the latest Star Wars instalment released in December it’s topical, and way cooler than knitting a scarf. It comes with all they’ll need to crochet an adorable little Yoda and a Stormtrooper.
For something a little more sophisticated try these beautiful marble and copper Alphabet Coasters from Oliver Bonas. They are perfect stocking fillers or secret Santa pressies for those who take pride in their home. Pick a few to make up a set to spell out a family name or give each person their own initial, either way it’s a great practical gift with bags of style.
