Personalised Gift Wrap and Accessories from Zazzle

Merry Christmas bagRecently I had the opportunity to try shopping for some personalised gift wrap and accessories at a great online destination called Zazzle.

Shopping at Zazzle allows you to add a personal touch to cards, gifts, homeware, clothing and more.  The site is packed full of great things that can be customised as you wish – you could seriously lose yourself browsing and playing around with personalising designs, colours and fonts, plus uploading your own photos onto things.

I love gorgeous wrapping paper, so with Christmas just around the corner, over at the gift wrap department was the first stop I made.  I chose some Scandi Reindeer wrapping paper in classic Christmassy red and white, plus some Good Tidings Rustic Holiday gift wrap in a lovely denim blue.

The paper quality is very good and glossy, like photo paper.

I also wanted to try out a customisation option, so I had a play around with the Custom Photo Christmas Dots gift wrap.  It was so easy to upload photos from my computer – I added a range of different pictures of our boys and our pet cat.  Hopefully the lads will be surprised and delighted on Christmas morning, I can’t wait to see their reaction!

All three wrapping papers are extremely good quality, far superior to the supermarket stuff I would normally buy.  Yes, it’s more expensive per roll, but for special gifts, and due to the fact you can add customisations, I think it’s worth splashing out.  I also ordered a sheet of cute ‘peace and joy’ stickers as an extra to add to gifts or Christmas card envelopes (when I get around to writing them).

Talking of Christmas cards, if your hand cramps up from writing them all, have you ever considered getting some with a printed message inside?  It was really nice customising these Birds of a Feather holiday greeting cards.  (If I get extra organised and make some address labels of our contacts, too, I’ll have Christmas cards sorted from now on!)

We’ve always been able to get named products and gifts for Alex, our eldest, but Gabriel and Beau aren’t as easily found, so it’s great that at Zazzle I could put their names on practically anything.  It always bugged me when I was little that mugs, pencil cases and bookmarks never had ‘Antonia’ on them.  (My mum and dad did manage to get me an enamel mug eventually with my name on and I was so thrilled!)  As three siblings, our lads have to share an awful lot so it’s extra special to have something that’s just theirs and so I’m keen to order more named goods from Zazzle in the future.

Finally, I’ve thought ahead and got the boys some festive thank you notes, customised again of course.

I was surprised at how quickly all the products arrived after placing my order, considering they were shipped from the USA.  It was just a few days which is excellent and they all reached me in perfect condition.

Have you shopped online with Zazzle before?  If you’d like to get a few personalised gifts for Christmas, there’s still time, so why not check out the site today and have some fun browsing and customising your favourite goodies!
