i 6Excited that we’ve got iPhone 6 cases to personalise. Such an awesome Christmas gift, as you can only imagine how many people have iPhones on their wish list. Actually, you can’t. There’s too many of them.

Phones cases are one of our most popular Christmas items, and you can definitely understand why. The amount of new iPhones soaring across the skies to reach us in time all need to be protected from nights out, falling out of pockets and big hairy teenage feet.

Choose something different this year, and give an iPhone a chance!

CaptureBeing a bit of an avid Ebay-er, I’ve come across quite a few listings where someone’s selling things given to them by an ex boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife. I’m not sure if it’s Schadenfreude, but they’re usually quite funny, even if it’s in a way that makes you wince a little. You really get the feeling that things didn’t end well; whether the listing’s about financial gain or revenge is quite often the most uncomfortable bit, although the sense of humour usually comes through. Mostly.

So when I found out there’s a whole website dedicated to gifts from ‘The Ex’, I wasn’t sure whether it would be a bit cursed. ‘Never Liked it Anyway‘ is a whole website dedicated to flogging stuff given to you by The B*****d or the B***h. Tongue in cheek-ish, it is a whole cathartic process of exorcising your demons. I’m kinda hooked on the stories that accompany the things that are being sold, though I think maybe that’s wrong. Anyway, for the spurned or the spurnee, this is a must see!

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!

piratesI’m a massive fan of our personalised hoodies throughout the range. They are just so warm and easy to wash, they’re a bit of a snuggly staple in my wardrobe.

Our kids hoodies are just great too, and perfect for this in between weather. Kids love to design their own items as well, so a legitimate half term activity is to let them create their clothes. Either with the help of our templates, their own design or something you cunningly steer them towards, this is guaranteed to be something they love and will be mega practical. Win win!

PreviewYouDesign (64)Now that the weather is getting colder, I’m almost totally living in my TSS hoodie, hoodies in fact, as I have more than one. So many more. Reason being that apart from being incredibly toasty warm, is that it comes with totally handy little pouchy pockets within the pockets so your phone doesn’t drop out or get lost within many layers of clothing. Such an amazing invention, you’ll never know how you managed before with your phone in your back pocket bum calling random people you really don’t want to be dialling right now!

Oh, and it has thumb holes. The kind you used to make at school and incurring the wrath of the head. These come as standard. Take that!
