Struggling to find a thoughtful Christmas gift? Our founder Sophie Kirkpatrick has been making personalised gifts since the business started in 2011 and here are some tips she’s picked up along the way.
Make it personal
It can be tempting to play it safe when gift shopping—like buying your father-in-law another set of neutral wool socks, because who wouldn’t like that? But if you put a little bit more thought into the selection process, it’ll pay off big time.
MAN & HIS DOGS SILHOUETTE
Perfect for any Father-in-law who adores his dogs.
Buy something that sparks joy for you
The excitement you feel when selecting a gift can be felt by the recipient when it’s opened, so choosing something that sparks joy in you will lead to a more meaningful present.
BESPOKE FAMILY SILHOUETTE
A unique gift that will hang on the wall in your home, so you get to love it every day too.
Make a list of the person’s interests and preferences
Basing a present around experiences or hobbies is a sure winner. Make a list of their favourite places and what they enjoy about those locations.
Identify items the person may need.
Practical gifts can still feel like a treat, especially when they are bespoke. Knowing that someone needs a new visitors book or their old drinks tray is looking a little shabby will add meaning to your gift.
