Sometimes I struggle with Christmas present ideas for family, namely because they have everything they want these days. You can buy things so easily and conveniently online that people just grab what they want, when they want it. The idea of something personalised, is not only more thoughtful but it is something that they won’t have already! I jumped for joy when GiftsOnline4U sent me 2 products to review. Here are my top choices of personalised gifts this Christmas:
Christmas is that one time of year where we can all sit back and enjoy ourselves. You may find that you eat one too many pigs in blankets and you may also feel your belt tightening around your waist as the days go by. The problem with Christmas however, is finding what to buy people. Sometimes you may have no idea what to do, and other times you may have an idea but you just can’t seem to find something that is exactly what you’re looking for. If you want to get some gift ideas just in time for Christmas then take a look below.
The holidays are coming and now is the time that you should start focusing on getting gifts together for your family, friends, and other loved ones. But nowadays, so many things are produced en mass that it can be difficult to find something that is just right for its intended recipient. So how do you go about keeping things personal? A unique gift shows that lots of thought, effort, and time have been put into the gift buying process. It shows that you had the person in mind when buying rather than picking up the first thing that you came across. The answer: bespoke gifts. Here are a few for you to consider in the lead up to the festivities.
As many of you know, I love The Body Shop, fabulous products that are cruelty free to animals. They are very kind and share fabulous offers and promotions with me each week. This could be anything from instore/online offers, money off deals, specific product and seasonal promotions. In the run up to Christmas I thought it would be a perfect thing to share with my readers. Make the most out of the offers and get your Christmas shopping done with a little bit of money saved.
I couldn’t help but sing have a Mary Berry Christmas to myself when I started writing this review. I have really missed Mary Berry in Great British Bake Off this year, so seeing this new range cheered me up. I Just Love It have a personalised Mary Berry collection with everything from mugs to bread bins. Everything for the bake off/baking fan this Christmas.
I spend lots of money each year decorating the Christmas gifts, I want them to look perfect. So I will buy wrapping paper, pretty string and ribbons, bows and Kraft tags to decorate myself too. I have great plans for my Cricut machine again this year, so I can get crafty with some of the wrapping. But I started to think about how I can reduce the costs and still be happy with my creations.
If you are an extremely busy person, it may start to feel as though there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Dealing with excessive amounts of stress can be extremely bad for your physical and mental wellbeing, which is why you need to take control. Make sure that you are doing everything in your power to optimise the way that you are spending your time. One way for you to do this is to think carefully about your purchases. Below are four products that are perfect for anyone who is always in a rush.
Nappy cakes are by far one of the best gifts to take along to any baby shower. You can rest assured that this is a gift that is going to get loads of use from new Mum and, of course, new baby. I used to make these and I loved it, being creative with baby toys and essentials. The image above is one I made for my daughter Isla Rae, I loved making it as it felt extra special. If you’ve not heard of a nappy cake before, these cakes are made out of nappies that are put together to create several tiers. The tiers are then stacked to look like a cake and then decorated with a range of other items such as ribbons to make them look beautiful. Not only are these great gifts, they also make lovely centrepieces at a baby shower. You can use it as the centrepiece and then send it home with Mum after the shower.
I love stationery. In fact, I feel I may have an unhealthy obsession with it. I have pens just because I liked the look of the pen. Admittedly it isn’t an expensive obsession, which is a bonus! National stationery week (my favourite kind of week) is a great week to celebrate my love for pens and all things stationery. Pen Heaven have some fabulous products that are just perfect for a special gift for someone (or to top up your stationery collection).
