Personalised Christmas gifts they'll treasure forever

There are few better feelings than giving someone you love a thoughtful, personal gift.

Watching them unwrap and open it is almost as good as open and unwrapping your own presents. Almost.

With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of products that can be personalised with text, photos and other designs to show your friends and family how much you care about them.

We may have ordered cookies with our names on them in the process. Not sorry.

Books

The Book of Everyone makes custom books for mums, dads, BFFs, cat lovers, dog lovers and, well, everyone. Give someone you love a personalised book full of either quotes or facts about their name and birthday or a personalised book of quotes. They also do cool personalised maps.

This will earn you brownie points for sure.


Homewares

Print a poem on a pillow, a recipe on wallpaper, a photo on a tea towel. Spoonflower’s huge range of personalisable homewares also includes bedding, placemats, curtains and more. All you have to do is upload your photo, text or design.

Photo books

Photo books make an excellent gift for grandparents or distant relatives. Plus, you can show your kids how photos look outside social media.

Cookies

Ok, so these won’t last forever. But if you want to say it with sugar and have the baking skills of, well, me, try Sweet Mickie. They’ll deliver custom, personalised cookies straight to your Christmas tree.

Choo choo choose cookies!

Wall prints

Give the gift of your face this Yuletide. You can stretch it over a canvas, print it on a pillow or wack it on coasters for your loved ones.

Who doesn't want to lie beneath themselves on the couch?

Mugs

Nothing says ‘Merry Christmas’ like a mug on a mug. Print photos, words or your artwork onto mugs, clothes, wine bottles, tech items and sports gear on Zazzle.

Sadly, the dog doesn't come with your gift.

Puzzles

A Christmas gift the whole family can enjoy over and over. Imagine the fun: “Who’s got Dad’s eye?” “Did we lose Mum’s belly button?” “I don’t think that’s Tom’s hair.”

"Has anyone seen Mum's belly button?"

School supplies

Good golly.

Get your kids excited for the new school year with personalised lunch boxes, backpacks, labels and other fun supplies. Who doesn’t want their name on a bento box?
