Thursday 16th Dec 2021 |

Christmas is a time of year where we are all looking for the perfect gift to give to family and friends. Following a challenging year, more than ever, we all want to show our loved ones how much they mean to us and by treating them this Christmas to something thoughtful and unique.

Giving a gift that is thoughtful can sometimes seem a bit difficult, but a personalised present can be a great way to show just how much you care. Clare Moreton, photo expert at CEWE, shares her thoughts on why you should give loved one’s personalised gifts this Christmas.

It’s important to show how much you care

There’s no doubt that this year has been a difficult one more many. But one positive we can take is that it’s helped many of us feel closer to our loved ones and made us realise how much they mean to us. So, this year more than ever, it’s important to show them how much you care and how loved they are with a gift that was made with them in mind.

It lets you show how much you know them

Gifting someone a present that’s unique and personal to them shows just how well you know them. Anyone can walk into a shop and buy a present straight off the shelf – but choosing something with a personal touch shows just how well you know and love them. Personalised gifts can be designed to their exact taste and can include their favourite things that you know they love.

 You can be sure your gift will stand out

At Christmas, we give and receive multiple gifts and often generic gifts can sometimes become overlooked. Treating your loved one to something personalised is bound to make your gift stand out from the crowd and will be something they won’t forget anytime soon!

 They can evoke an emotional reaction

Whether you want them to cry with laughter or with tears of nostalgia, a personalised gift is guaranteed to spark all the right emotions. Photo gifts such as photo books are the perfect gift to remind a loved one of a special event – whether that’s their wedding or an unforgettable holiday that you’ve shared together. A personalised gift will tug on their heart strings and will remind them how special they are to you.

It’s a gift that is completely unique

There’s nothing worse than sitting around the Christmas tree on Christmas Day opening gifts with your family and seeing your sister has treated your mum to the exact same jumper you’ve bought her – disaster! When you buy a personalised gift, there’s no need to panic as you’ll be gifting them something that’s totally bespoke and unique to them.

They show you’ve put thought into it

We’ve all been in a position where we’ve hit the shops in a mad dash to find someone a gift at the last minute and often end up putting little thought into it. When you gift someone something personalised, whether it’s a mug, a phone case or a photo book, it shows you’ve really put thought into their gift and made a real effort – which is much more impressive than buying something for the sake of it!

Christmas is a time that we get to spend with our loved ones and create magical memories together.
