December 21, 2016
Finding the perfect pre-made personalised present for your little one can be hard, especially when there are limited options to choose from on the highstreet. However, if you?re in the mood to get creative in order to give your child the best possible present, we have good news; the possibilities are endless. After all, what could be better than a present made by their very own mummy or daddy? To help, we have outlined a few of our favourite personalised gift ideas for children, so take note and let your creative juices flow.
This DIY gift idea is easy to do, extremely fun and something you can create alongside your child. All you need is a blank canvas and some brightly coloured paint (of which should be selected by your little one, of course). To create your child?s very own handprint canvas, simply press their hands into the paint and print onto the canvas ? it?s really as simple as that! Once you?ve finished, you?ll have a colourful canvas that?s perfect for hanging on the wall to remember fondly as the years pass by.
If your child is a fan of reading, this gift will be perfect. No longer will your child be reading about fictional characters; with our personalised children's books, they will become the star of the story, represented by their very own avatar. As a parent, you can personalise every element of the book, including the main character's name, the avatar and the story itself, selecting various elements to make the book completely unique to your little one. You can even add a special message to your finished book, perfect for various occasions, such as a birthday or Christmas.
If there's a particular picture of you and your little one that brings a tear to your eye, don't just print it and put it into a frame. Instead, print it onto a cushion, so that your child always has you with them, wherever they go. Most photo printing companies will provide this service as standard. All you'll need to have with you is a USB loaded with your chosen image so they can print there and then.
If you're feeling particular craftsy, dust off your sewing kit because these ideas are sure to put a smile on your child?s face and will transform playtime into something magical.
