tss-rs-tree [524426]We’ve got some fab new designs for Christmas, all made by our talented Matt, so I though I’d share one with you today.

First up, the classic Christmas Tree. This is a lovely one for your t-shirt, teddy bear’s shirt or hoodie. What I love about rhinestones is that they look so delicate, but give a load of robust sparkle and a little bit of magic. This one you can personalise with your own text, colour and of course, choice of garment. Just chosse a colour for the tree, and another colour for the base and your text. Add some sparkle to Christmas!

headWell, they did say it would be gale force winds! This week’s been all over the place. There was sunshine, and some pleasantness, but now it’s gone full out winter mode. Time to beat the windswept look and go for warm and snug instead. So much nicer than your hair standing on end, teeth a-chattering!

Our Peruvian hats are just the thing for winter. The bees knees, the cat’s pyjamas and the dog’s…er…biscuits (!) all rolled into one! Warm and cosy, with the best ear flaps! Perfect for any outdoor activity, ridiculously warm, and mega easy to wash. You’ll be so glad you got one of these. You are welcome!

Ah, so today’s brainwave is the Secret Santa mug with subliminal message and bottle of miniature spirits secreted within. Although, let’s be honest, it’s not all that secret any more if I’m writing about it on this blog, but that’s not the point, we’re all about sharing right now!

If you put your mind to it for more than 5 seconds, you can come up with a much better slogan than mine, but when it’s that time of year, you don’t want to spend ages being thoughtful with everybody; some presents just have to be crowd pleasers. And this is perfect, a drinking vessel and booze……what’s not to like?secret san

dARWIN FISHFar be it from me to say that there’s something fishy about those symbols you see on cars, but well, to be honest there just is and that’s all I’m going to say.

I love this Darwin t-shirt tho, available from the Guardian shop, where to confound those fish believers, evolution has occurred and the darned fish has grown legs and practically turned into a mammal.

One of those t-shirt slogans that you can’t help but enjoy, just a bit of a niggle, but enough. Great for any scientific chums, but maybe best not try it out on your churchgoing auntie. She could evolve a forked tongue.

IMAG0759My Facebook feed is just full of smug little critters I barely know reminding me that there are only 5 Fridays until Christmas, or 39 sleeps or 3 roast dinners or 2 stubbed toes and things like that. I want to punch them. However, it does make me think that there’s one thing that can make Christmas less of a headache and that is knowing you’ve got a whole lot of gifts sorted.

My favourite thing from T-Shirt Studio for a gift is a coffee mug with either a picture or a slogan on it. Easy and useful, it can be a picture of a loved one, or a crap yet cute drawing, or something funny, designed to cause hilarity. Either way, it’s good to know there’s a whole range of options right at your fingertips. And for total peace of mind, check out our delivery times here. Coming up to Christmas, we gets busier and busier and the poor postman is run ragged, so the sooner you get around to it the better and smugger you’ll be!

movember-preview-64_grandeDo you remember the first time Movember happened way back in 2003? Well, neither do I, but check out the amazing info-graphic here. There was a spurt of facial hair every which way you looked as chaps encouraged their follicles to sprout to raise money for men’s charities, and in the 12 years since it’s conception, over 400 million has been raised….amazing!

Well, Movember is here again, and the stubble should be well and truly at the itchy stage by now…. so to celebrate the flourishing faces of mighty men everywhere, here’s a moustache on a glorious Mo Bro tee…go bro!
