Sure, some people are sick of receiving mugs as gifts. But if you customise it with a picture of them or maybe a meaningful/funny quip, the mug becomes more than just an object that is used to hold their favourite drink. It becomes a way to boost their spirit and make them feel special.

People use magnets every day, whether it is on their fridge in the kitchen or even on a white board in their office.

9) Greeting Cards

Sometimes, nothing carries more value than a greeting card with a specially crafted message. Rather than buying a Christmas card and writing your wishes down in them, why not design one from scratch? That way you can put in all your thoughts and feelings into the card.

Get a customised greeting card from Photobook Worldwide (with up to 24% cashback for until 15 Dec for 12.12). It’s found under the Photo Gifts section in their website.

Or you could just get some card paper and draw on it. Same difference (if you can draw, that is).


Nothing says “I love you” more than a customised gift! Of course, you can combine a customised item with other things that you feel the person may like. Just buy or make something that comes from the heart.

If you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping just yet, why not shop around online? You may find great gifts at bargain prices, especially during 12.12! Happy Shopping and Merry Christmas!
