I don’t know about you but it seems that Christmas comes round quicker every year and if you are like me then finding gift inspiration that’s ‘different’ can seem tantamount to impossible. It’s so tempting to make a smash n’ grab visit to the local supermarket to buy the same old impersonal smellies sets and boxes of chocolates, but there is an alternative and you don’t even have to leave your house! What if I told you there’s a way to find a personal, quirky gift for everyone on your shopping list by simply hopping online, you can even do it in your pyjamas and lets face it that certainly beats battling with the Christmas shopping crowds that will grown ten-fold over the next few weeks!
Head over to Funky Pigeon! You may associate their site with their range of personalised cards, but did you know they offer a massive range of gifts too? They have something for everyone, old and young with many that you are able to add your own personalisation to make them truly unique to the recipient. The delivery turnaround time is really quick too, even for items that are personalised!
Whilst there are hundreds of gift options available for every occasion, not just Christmas, I have chosen a few of my festive favourites to share with you.
These fabulous socks are the ultimate quirky present and perfect for all with sizes from 4-11. Simply choose who you’d like to feature on your socks, upload your photo and see an instant preview of what your finished product will look like! These would make a great secret Santa gift or stocking filler and are guaranteed to be a talking point on Christmas Day.
The print quality is really good and my hubby is looking forward to donning this pair featuring our cheeky reindeer during the festive period.
If Reindeer aren’t your thing then why not check out these personalised Santa Socks!
Who doesn’t need a new notebook, right? Certainly for us bloggers they are a must-have to keep all our ideas and plans together, but you can never go wrong with a good quality notebook or pad for anyone and this personalised one is so cute. Available in A4, A5 and A6 size with the option for plain or lined paper as well as upgrades to include a protective cover and extra sheets of paper.
The design of this notebook is so cute with a subtle Christmas feel that’s not too in your face making it perfect for use all year long. You can upload a photo of your choice and view the instant preview online to make sure you are happy before ordering. You can also change the wording to a maximum of 15 characters.
The notebook is great quality and perfect for me to keep all my notes and reminders in one place, plus with the personalisation it ensures the kids aren’t tempted to steal it for school! One of these would make the perfect gift or stocking filler and fear not if pink isn’t your recipients colour they also offer this product in a blue colourway.
Confession.. I am a bit of a Mug hoarder! I have a cupboard fit to burst with mugs of every shape, colour and size yet I can never resist picking up ANOTHER cute one! However, being a mug conessuir I am a little fussy when it comes to design and especially shape as there’s no point in having a cup that’s awkward or uncomfortable to hold.
Despite being Christmas mad I don’t really have any festive mugs so when I saw that Funky Pigeon had a whole range I was in my element. My personal favourite is this White Christmas mug as it’s such a simple, yet stunning design and I really liked the stylish shape of it as well as the option to personalise. It’s the perfect size for a brew or a cheeky festive hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows and is a nice snug fit when you hold it – I told you I was fussy! I made sure the mug had my name on to ensure sneaky family members don’t use my cup – there’s nothing worse than having a favourite mug and someone else decides to use it!
This particular style of mug is also available in Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town and Most Wonderful Time of The Year designs, but there are also heaps more Christmas themed and personalised mugs available to choose from.
These are just a snapshot of the hundreds of gifts available from the website so make sure you go and check them out for yourselves.
