Time has come for people to get their thinking caps on to come up with new and original Christmas presents. The perfect present will be a balance between being an amazing present, have a personal sentiment and not break the bank in doing so! That’s not too much to ask is it? We want to look at what gifts you can get that can be personalised for that special someone.
The fact is that you can get just about everything personalised for anyone. But you want to get more than a mug for someone for Christmas so these are gifts that are a little bit different but will hopefully be well received on Christmas Day.
More than a mug and twice as delicious, getting personal with chocolates could not be more straightforward. This is a great personalised gift that is sure to have any chocolate lover over the moon. It will be more of a question if they can bare to open it to eat the chocolate inside. With options to add both the name of the recipient and a photo of your self this is a simple present that won’t break the bank but show a bit of thought has gone into it. We have written a bit more about chocolate gifts for you to check out.
For those of you that are unaware of Etsy it is a great online shopping site that allows people to upload items that they have made to be bought. It has a huge range of products on its pages, and we mean huge! With such a diverse range of items you are bound to find something to suit who ever you are looking to buy for. However, there is a section on the site that allows personalisation and it happens to be aimed towards Christmas presents. This really throws the doors open to getting something special that will be personalised for that special someone.
Message in A Bottle
Perhaps this Christmas you would like to send a message to that someone special. And why not do it in a rather romantically whimsical fashion and send them a message in a bottle. This is a little bit mushy but there is a definite romantic notion behind the idea which is sure to make the gift memorable. You can choose which bottle you would like and create the message contained in the bottle to mean a little more to the recipient.
This is a gift for the foodies. It allows you to assemble a cookbook made up of recipes from over 25,000 Epicurious.com recipes and create a book dedicated to someone close. We really like the option of uploading recipes to create a book that is made out of family recipes, this could be a gift to give to more than one person in your family bringing the family together through recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation.
This one may be a little bit trashy but it is definitely unique. Your Novel lets you and a special someone in you life star in your own book. The titles are varied but you can be assured that if your partner is into trashy novels then they will love this idea.
Fair Trade and Ethical Gifts
Christmas is a great time to do a bit of good for the world and help out those who are less fortunate. There are lots of different ways in which you can give an ethical gift, this could be planting a tree in someone’s name which you can then go and visit for years to come. You could sponsor a child or look to helping out a community through making a donation. We think that getting a gift that helps others is a great gift and it will be appreciated by the recipient, after all, they didn’t need yet another pair of socks.
Don’t Get A Gift
Perhaps you shouldn’t get someone a gift if you really don’t know what they want. The idea is to show them that you care about them so planning something together might be a better gift than an actual physical present. You could plan a day trip to somewhere that means something to both of you. Even creating personalised “IOU” cards would be a great gift allowing the person to use the cards to meet up with you.
We hope that some of these ideas have inspired you to look beyond the usual socks and scarves that many people will be receiving this Christmas. With a little bit of thought and effort you can find some gifts that will mean a lot to the people receiving them and everyone will feel that warm Christmassy feeling that is so special. We have put together a bundlr looking at other examples of gifts that you can get personalised for the Christmas festivities.
