Personalised and precious gift ideas
Over at www.helloprint.co.uk I have found some brilliant gift items that can be customised.
We have a couple of very special birthdays coming up this year and a very special wedding too and I have been racking my brains thinking about gift ideas that will knock their socks off. I think it would be very cute to make a few really personalised gifts.
When it comes to buying a present that is really special you really don’t have to spend a fortune – instead, I think you need to be thoughtful and get a gift that is unique and meaningful instead. This way you don’t have to spend too much but the present will be a very special one that is really valued. Here are a couple of gift ideas I have been thinking of.
I once had a bag, a tote bag with a drawing my little boy had done on it. Oh, I loved that bag just so much and I kept it for years. Hello Print enable you to print photos onto a variety of products including tote canvas bags. I think a family photo or a special message would be amazing and just so heartwarming! I also love how eco-friendly this gift is and practical. I really do like to buy people items they will use and that will last the distance.
Other lovely ideas that can be personalised.
I am rather loving the idea of a personalised apron too for a family member who loves to cook it would be very cute. I also rather like the idea of a personalised Umbrella. I ‘d like one with my name on personally as everybody seems to pinch my umbrellas! And for my niece who is off to uni and will be sharing student accommodation,n I think a personalised mug with her photo on would mean it never got ‘lost’ or commandeered by another student. It would make an ideal gift.
When budgets are really tight a handmade gift is always a lovely option too. A handmade gift can be one of the most precious gifts someone receives especially if has been created with love and thoughtfulness.
My babies received a number of handmade gifts when they were born that wee just so meaningful. My father in law painted up my husband’s old train to make it shiny and new, I wrote them each a secret song and my mum’s best friend Ruby knitted Annalise a baby cardigan in every colour when she was born, one for each day of the week. Honestly the best baby gifts in the world.

I hope you have been inspired by these gorgeous personalised gift ideas. I’d love to know – what’s the most precious present you have ever received?
