Christmas is coming and, as usual, I never know what to get anybody. There is plenty of choice out there from novelty gifts to high-end gadgets. With so much choice it can seem overwhelming. So when looking for gifts do you just go for something expensive and hope cost wins out, or put some thought in to it and get a personalised gift that will mean something to the recipient and will be cherished forever?
I decided that something personal would be more appropriate, but where do you start. There are lots of websites that offer a large variety of personalised gifts like Not on the High Street and Prezzybox, but I wanted something different. So after searching Google for personalised gifts, I came across Bags of Love that offer slightly different personalised gifts; they have over 400 personalised photo gifts that are handmade in the UK. Their range covers books, cushions and pillows, bedding, kitchen & dining, clothing, wall art and lots more. I ordered some medium sized personalised placemats for the dinner table, which are excellent quality. Each can be personalised with a different image and text, are glossy, heat resistant, tough, wipe clean and have a dark hardwood hygienic back (no cork or baize). A great addition to the dinner table and make an excellent Christmas gift. I placed my order late on a Monday afternoon / early evening and it was made and delivered by Saturday, and I was kept informed by email and text message when it was dispatched. You can keep up to date with Bags of Love on their social media channels: Facebook and Twitter.
You can find lots of reviews for Christmas gifts on the What’s Good To Website, personalised or not, but, for me, the Bags of Love Personalised Photo Place Mats (starting from £29 for 2) are a great thoughtful gift that will always be cherished.
A personalised gift makes your shows that you have:
Put thought into your gift
No else will have bought the same gift
It will be a gift that will always be treasured and cherished
So whatever presents you decide to give this Christmas, make sure you put some thought into it and make it personal to the recipient.
