When you are struggling to decide what to buy for a relative, loved one or friend at Christmas, then help is at hand. What better gift could there be than one that has been personalised using photographs of the recipient’s nearest and dearest and has been designed specifically with them in mind? Here we look at eight wonderful and personalised Christmas gifts which are bound to be a hit, no matter who you give them to.
A calendar is a great way to get organised, and what could be a better gift than a calendar where each month has been personalised with photos? You can even populate the dates with special events such as anniversaries and birthdays to make sure that no important occasion gets forgotten.
Canvas prints make a great Christmas gift and are a lovely way to display photographs around the home. The photographs are stretched over a wooden frame, making this a fantastic way for others to see pictures of loved ones. It is even possible to have a collage canvas print made using several photos.
If you prefer to choose a frame yourself or to let your recipient choose one that complements their own decor, then a print featuring a treasured moment or a collage featuring family and friends will make a perfect gift. Prints are available in large sizes, and there are also poster-sized ones and collages.
What better way to enjoy a hot drink than in a mug featuring a treasured photo? Mugs make a great stocking filler for Christmas, and there are several types to choose from, including ones where the picture ‘magically’ appears when hot liquid is poured into it. It is also possible to have images incorporated into stainless steel travel mugs as well as porcelain mugs and regular white pottery ones.
We all know how important electronic devices are, so why not give a friend or loved one a mobile phone or tablet case which includes either a single image or a group of images? Cases are available for the major smartphones as well as durable leather cases for tablets. This is the ideal gift for the person who thinks that they have ‘everything’!
With the increasing use of mobile technology, many people put off creating photo albums, so why not do it for them as a Christmas gift by getting them a photo book? Available in a variety of sizes and formats, including landscape, portrait and square, a photo book is the ideal way to capture all of those important moments for a loved one, all in the same place.
There is a whole range of photo gifts which will make perfect stocking fillers and a great addition to someone’s Christmas gifts. For adults there are coasters, placemats, mouse mats and key rings, while children are not left out with personalised jigsaw puzzles where the image is the puzzle, as well as teddy bears wearing personalised t-shirts.
There are a number of wall art items that are ideal as Christmas gifts, including posters, canvases and mounted prints. These make a perfect gift for a loved one and allow you to capture a special moment in a large size to form a piece of art for their wall.
Hopefully, this has provided you with some inspiration for when you are not sure what gift to buy. There can be nothing better than an item that has been personalised with photos of people that the recipient cares about. What better Christmas gift could there be?
