5 Thoughtful Christmas Gifts


It’s come to the time of year where Christmas gifting is constantly on my mind and truth be told, it can be overwhelming! As I’ve gotten older, gifting also becomes more difficult as most people buy what they need themselves - why is why my go-to is always personalised gifts. Ideal for family, personalised gifts is the perfect opportunity to share the love! So I thought I’d break down 5 gifts which are easily personalised and make the ideal gesture!


Leather Keyring

Readily available on many independent sites, leather keyrings are a fab low budget gift that is easily personalised! Over 2 years ago, I was gifted a keyring with my initials on and I still have it to this day! The perfect suggestion for a secret Santa gift!



Again, a good suggestion for a low budget idea is a personalised notebook. Whether this is a slightly nicer leather notebook with a gold embossing or a just a simple notebook customised with a name, this is something that will almost certainly be well used! These often retail from £5 so are incredibly affordable! But they don’t have to be personalised with just a name as these can be customised to share a fun phrase about an individual!



An all-round winner, personalised chocolate gifts always go down a storm! Whether it’s a stocking filler or an all-round gift, these come in at all sorts of prices so there’s no breaking the bank! Thornton’s has an incredible range of personalised chocolate options from advent calendars to chocolate boxes – perfect for everyone! Chocolate is a sure fire win in my house so if you’re really struggling with gift ideas, this will be a guaranteed hit!


Phone Cases

A great shout if you know what phone someone has, a personalised phone case is guaranteed to be used! These are ideal for tricky to buy for people as it’s an essential! I’ve bought phone cases for my parents before and they’re always a hit. These can be slightly priceyer to personalise but they’re worth it. I’d always suggest going for a phone case that has protection so that there’s no risk of anyone damaging their phone!


Styled portrait

Again, a slightly more pricey option but a fantastic idea for a joint gift! A couple of years ago, I paid for a custom portrait of my family that went down a storm! These are often under £100 but are a fantastic and memorable gift! Ideal for family, purchase one of these for a gift that will be remembered forever!
