We’ve compiled a few of the best holiday gifts that could make the perfect present for you or a family member and you can go into the cold, frosty British winter with a very prepped wardrobe.
Start off right with the perfect outer layer. And this means getting yourselves a proper coat. By coat, I mean a big, thick winter coat, not an anorak (as they are not cosy nor practical for harsh conditions) and a coat is a great wardrobe staple during the colder months, especially in the UK. This truly is an essential during the winter and something everyone should have in their wardrobe. We offer an extensive list of brands to create your personalised jacket so you’ll never be short of options.
Knits and cosy jumpers
Next, make sure you have your knits and cosy jumpers. You could prepare yourself for the inevitably cold weather by investing in one of our many jumpers to wear under your coat as an extra layer. Popular styles for jumpers in the colder months include turtle necks, cardigans and oversized sweatshirts. We offer a range of different styles and colours, so why not browse the website and see which one works for you.
Winter accessories are a key to any strategy of keeping warm. To complete your winter outfit look, a great accessory for keeping not only your body but your head warm, is a beanie. Give the gift of warmth with a personalised beanie, as they can be decorated with a logo too. As winter begins to settle around the UK, a beanie would be the perfect gift to any friends or family to keep them warm while the cold weather passes.
There are countless ways you can personalise this gift. Does your friend have a favourite quote? Maybe a movie character or a sweet nickname that can be printed on the beanie? Any of these choices can be embroidered on the beanie and delivered to you just on time for the holidays.
If you’re looking for something more unique and creative, we’ve got a whole list of gifts you can prepare using just a mug or a tea cup – it can become a lot more personal with your friend’s favourite quote printed on it or his/her initial in a glam gold decal. Filled with lavender or succulents it can make a stylish table decor and a cocoa cup later.
If you have any designs in mind we’ll be happy to print them for you. We’re able to recreate even the most complicated of designs to print the mugs exactly how you want them. We can also print full colour photos in high-quality. Our printing techniques include dye sublimation and screen printing.
For a more personal touch, you can make a gift with your own hands – DIY candles are a quick and stylish present that can melt your friend’s heart. All you need is some wax and a fancy container – a tea cup or egg holders could suit perfectly. If you have any empty tea tins lying in the cupboard you could easily recycle these too into vintage candle holders. Most waxes adhere well to porcelain, ceramic, and glass containers.
Country Living has a detailed step by step tutorial that can guide you through the candle-making process. All you’ll need is wax, wicks, putty, a pencil, and a candy thermometer.
Trompe L’oeil Teapot
Add a Renaissance touch to your friends’ evening tea ritual. Trompe L’oeil translates as “deceive the eye” which was a popular painting technique in the 15th century. So why not bring it in the 21st century’s living room?
To start with, you need plain ceramic cup, saucer set and a porcelain marker. Alternatively, you can contact us for an express delivery of your chosen print – this can save you the 3 days you’ll need to wait for the marker to dry and still keep the personality of your gift.
