It’s that time of year when you need to start thinking about what to buy your friends and loved ones for Christmas. It’s not always easy buying for others, especially if you’re out of ideas or find the traditional gifts a little boring. You want to add a little ‘life’ to your gift list and an unusual gift that really surprises and delights the recipient.
That’s why personalised gifts make for such a great gift. They allow you to show a little creativity and opt for something a little different. So if you’re looking for something that stands out and hits the spot, here are four unusual gift ideas that are perfect solutions.
A charm with a difference
If you’re looking for a gift that’s unique and a little different, why not check out this beautiful Fingerprint Charm Necklace? A specialist jewellery manufacturer makes these sterling silver charms exclusively for us, and each one has room on the front for a print and an engraved name on the back.
The beauty of this charm necklace is you’re not just limited to a fingerprint. Why not opt for a handprint or footprint of your loved one? It also makes a perfect gift idea for a dog or cat lover, as you can opt to use a paw print as the featured engraving on the front!
