Who doesn’t love a personalised gift? When someone has taken the trouble to find or design something specific to you, it always feels extra special.
Zazzle is an online gift shop that somehow I only discovered recently! Since two of my three sons have slightly more unusual names it is impossible to find off the shelf personalised merchandise for them, so I’m really glad to know there is any array of customisable products out there for my lads. I know from my own personal experience as a child how frustrating it was to never see my own name on mugs and keyrings!
Of course now there is a lot more choice both in terms of products and the words or slogans you can choose to have printed. The options at Zazzle seem literally endless – clothing, mugs, bags, stationery, cushions, artwork, phone cases – you name it, you can put your name on it.
I was invited to experience the whole process of shopping with Zazzle, from choose something to personalise, ordering and receiving it. Having recently reviewed some lovely bedding, it seemed like the ideal opportunity to give our bed a final finishing touch and so I opted for a pair of cushions printed with ‘Mr’ & ‘Mrs’.
I discovered this navy ‘Mrs’ cushion one that was shown as being printed on both sides, but by clicking on the ‘Customise It’ button I was able to make the reverse side blank and also add a second cushion to my basket which I amended to read ‘Mr’ so that I had my ‘his & hers’ pair. It was very straightforward and I could have easily changed the cushion colour too, but really liked the navy. The fabric is a crease-free polyester, but again I could have altered my order to a cotton cover if preferred, or indeed a different size or shape of cushion.
When you are happy with your order, you can opt for standard or express shipping; I opted for express and even though all Zazzle cushions are printed in-house over in California, they were made up and shipped over to me super-quick, which is good to know if you need a present in a hurry. You can track your order too for extra peace of mind.
It doesn’t matter what age you are, anyone can enjoy a personalised gift and I guarantee there is something for everybody on the Zazzle website – check it out and see for yourself!
Thanks to Zazzle for my complimentary cushions, all words my own.
