It’s a scary thought that in a few months it’ll be Christmas! Where has this year gone? One thing on my mind every year is, what unique and quirky gifts can I think of buying my family and friends this year. I don’t like buying things for the sake of it, they have to mean something to the person I’m giving the gift too otherwise what is the point!
As Christmas seems to get more expensive every year, with latest technology and fashions available, my mission is to find the best value gifts but ones that are valuable in memories or humour. So as you can tell I love handmade or personalised gifts and there are so many affordable options available now for the perfect present. Recently I was introduced to a company that specialises in unique and fabulous gifts, namely Mr Nutcase offers a great selection of personalised phone cases but they are now boasting a selection of personalised mugs to put your favourite photos or creations on to.
I love taking photos and it was a really difficult decision to make on what picture to grace the side of my new mug. As some of my favourite snaps are of the beautiful seaside village I live and the stunning sunsets I witness many evenings, I decided on one of the most popular sunset pictures I have on Instagram. The ordering process was really easy and there is an option to link uploading a picture straight from your Instagram images too.
It was really simple to add text too and make it unique and there are different sizes that make super affordable gifts. This would also be a great idea for a secret santa present too, especially if you want to surprise a workmate or friend with something different and interesting.
Take a look at my creation below which was based on my original image above.
