Personalised Gift Ideas from MY-PICTURE.co.uk

 **Collaborative Feature**

With Christmas fast approaching I have already started thinking about my Christmas shopping, hoping if I start now I can spread the cost a little with many of us feeling the pinch this year. Christmas is most definitely my favourite time of the year and I love putting lots of thought into getting those I love something I know will make them smile (and that doesn't have to cost the earth either!) and one way I love doing that is buying them personalised gifts. I don't know about you but whenever I receive a gift that has been personalised just for me it feels extra special because I know the person has really thought of me when buying it. 

If you are like me and love giving (and receiving) personalised gifts you should definitely check out My Picture. They have a huge range of personalised gifts from pictures and prints to personalised blankets, and cushions, you can even create your own photobooks or calendars. The range is huge so to help you decide, here are some of our favourite personalised gift ideas from MyPicture.co.uk including two I have recently purchased myself! 

Personalised Blanket

With the colder weather already on its way, this gift is both thoughtful and practical as a gift. The blankets are available in 3 sizes 100cm X 70cm, 150cm X 100cm, or 200cm X 150cm. The blankets are made from polar fleece with an additional layer of super soft plush to make the blankets super soft and snuggly. They are made to strict eco-friendly standards and the colours on the printing are vibrant and bright. The edges of the blanket are finished off with a neat simple stitch which really finishes off the blanket nicely.

 I recently ordered one of these in the 150cm X 100cm size and its perfect for my daughter's single bed (she plans to take it when she goes on trips or sleepovers etc so this seemed to be the best size). I used a picture of our guinea pigs I had taken on my phone and I think the picture came out really well! It's super clear and the colours are so vibrant considering this was just a photo taken on my (fairly old) mobile phone I was so impressed! 


Photobooks make such lovely, sentimental gifts and are perfect if you know someone who perhaps you have lots of memories with or who has just had a big life event such as a wedding or birth of a baby for instance. Or maybe you have just had an amazing holiday together and want to put a photo book together to remember your time away. Whatever the occasion, photo books are a great way to compile lots of photos into one gift, making it even more special and sentimental. They are also something that can be looked at time and time again, making people smile as they recall the memories and for me that is what gifts are all about, making the recipient smile.

My Picture offers 5 different size photobooks, these include 10cm X 10cm, 10cm X 15cm, an A4 photo booklet, 13cm X13cm, and an A3 ring binder. With 4 different binding options as well as the option to use high-definition digital printing or deluxe photo paper you really do have all the control over how this photobook ends up. 

Snow Globe Photo Frame

When I spotted these they took me right back to being mesmerised watching all the snow settle on my mum's huge snow globe at Christmas and they really would make a great gift, a modern twist on a snow globe! The frame fits a 15cm X 10cm photo inside an acrylic block and whilst one photo is included when you purchase the frame, the photo is actually changeable so you can swap and change the photo inside. You can also choose between 4 different glitter colours including silver, red, multi-coloured, and rose gold to really add that final personal touch to your photo. 

For my frame I chose a picture of our trip to London last year featuring my children and their besties on the London Eye, it felt super fitting as we were there in December and the silver glitter I chose really made it feel like a snow globe. 

Framed Photo

A timeless classic gift but always one that is well received is a framed photo. Perhaps the recipient has a favourite family photo you could have made into a framed photo, a photo of their wedding day, or even a photo you have taken that they have admired, all can be made into a beautifully framed picture. Available in a range of sizes between 20cm X 20cm and 80cm X 60cm as well as five frame colour choices (white, black matter, vintage silver, walnut flair, and oak vintage flair) you can ensure you personalise the gift to exactly as you want it to look.

  1. Photo gifts are such a great idea, they do feel extra special. That snow globe photo frame is something different. What a cute gift. x
