We all know that a personal gift is the best kind of gift, but we’re not all blessed with the talents of knitting and embroidering our way through each gift. Now that Christmas is fast approaching **there I said it, the ‘C’ word!**, many of us are starting to wonder what on earth we’re supposed to give to our SO this year – and how can we make it as sweet and personal as possible without having to go through various DIY tutorials on YouTube?
Luckily, the online world is a beautiful place and you can easily find the perfect personalised gift for your special someone without even having to break your piggy bank. Here is a handful of the very best ones to get your imagination going so that you can get the gift shopping out of the way a bit earlier this year.
1. Put your face on a sock
The older we get, the more we start to appreciate the soft presents. Socks are actually not that bad of a gift, come to think of it, as long as they’re soft, of a high quality, and preferably with your face on it.
It doesn’t even have to be your own face, though, if you’re not that keen on seeing your SO wear you on their feet – although it’s hard to say why you wouldn’t like that. Have a look at prezzybox.com, to begin with, or browse the web for some other options.
You will undoubtedly be able to find a lot of other shops that offer personalised clothing, whether you’d like to put your face or their Christmas jumper, their slippers, a pair of pyjama pants, or perhaps their underwear – the world is your oyster so give it some thought before you decide on anything final.
Another option is, of course, to put your pet’s face on it instead. You both love to look at your little fur child, in any way; if your SO has it on his socks, he’ll be able to show the world its cuteness.
2. A personalised mug or glass
While a regular mug or glass sounds a bit boring, it’s going to be a lot more fun when you can turn it into whatever you want. Place his or her name on it, for example, so that they never forget who they are while having a beer – or decorate it with one of your classic inside jokes.
Think about your SO’s favourite drink, whether it’s a cup of coffee, a high-quality beer, a fine wine, or perhaps a whiskey, and browse the web for a shop that offers personalised glasses.
If you’d like to be fancy, you can always pair the gift with their favourite drink as well, though, such as a solid coffee mug with their name on it as well as a coffee subscription or a bag of high-quality beans from Tanzania if you have a bean-to-cup coffee machine.
You can always give your special someone the most personal gift of them all, though, if you want to make sure that they look at it as much as possible; print some pictures of the two of you and find beautiful picture frames from frames.co.uk – that way, they will have to hang your gift on the wall, and you’ll surely notice it if they don’t.
3. Homemade candy and jar
Finally, a personalised candy jar filled to the brim with homemade sweets is just as romantic as it is impressive. While giving away homemade candy is sweet enough, it tends to disappear rather quickly – but with a glass jar to go with it, preferably with their name on it or something else that’s perfect for them, you simply can’t go wrong.
Making candy is actually quite easy as well, though, so have a look at this article for some delicious recipes. You can choose if you’d like to just buy a blank glass jar and decorate it yourself with some paint and beautiful penmanship – or you can order a personalised jar from an online shop.
There are, in fact, so many options when you’d like to give away something personal and romantic, and you don’t have to sit in a corner and knit for hours either.
Just think about what they prefer to do and give them something related to that that has their name on it, your face on it, or a funny quote he or she will appreciate.
