winecowThis is my new favourite toy. The tipsy cow. Possibly the nicest kind of curdly toy, and a whole udder level of cute gifts. Sorry. I can’t help but milk this a little bit…….even if I’m whey overstepping the mark!

Take a look at our range of stuffed toys. Gorgeous and cute, design their tee with photos, slogans or use our templates to create your own designs…..go on, they’re am000zing!!!

Possibly the cutest new baby gift ever here. Our super soft comfort blankets are a super soft fleecy square with a little itty bitty lammekin on one side. So ridiculously gorgeous, these are a delightful gift for a newborn, easy to wash and of course perfect for us to embroider with your choice of name.

There’s something about creating a personalised baby gift that just seems, well so much more personal than anything else. This is something to treasure for ages, and at ¬£13 is not too spendy for an instant heirloom. Cuddles ahoy this is cuteness overload!

One of our most practical items or collection of, is our range of personalised towels. They come in a variety of colours and sizes and are the absolute bees knees for any kind of swimming excursion. Whether for school trips, or beach jaunts or gym outings, being able to recognise your towel from afar is one of the most useful things you will ever experience. Honestly, this is up there with a a corkscrew and sliced bread.

Take a look and have a go with our fabulous 3D surroundy thing, so you’ll really be able to see how your towel will look. The scrunch up your eyes really tight and that’s how it’ll look when you’re on the beach trying to find where you left everything. Oh, and they’re on sale. Awesome, huh?

Ages ago I was playing with some templates for our fleecy scarves and the only word I could think of writing in the text box was ‘frozen’. Maybe because it was winter. And I was. Anyway, it gave me a terrible Disney style earworm, and totally put me off what I was doing.

So, when I was hunting through my files for some random thing and I came across this scarf, I was instantly transported back to a day of trying not to be a very unelegant Princess Elsa. And guess what? Yip, it happened all over again. I can’t get that bloody song out of my head.

So today, I’m kinda half showing you our lovely warm soft yummy scarves. And half wanting you to suffer with the singing curse alongside me. You’re welcome. (‘Let it gooooooooo’)

‘Tell the world about our new amazing 3D jigsaw preview’ enthused The Boss the other day. Sometimes The Boss can get very worked up about things like this and you kind of go ‘uh’ in a nonplussed manner when you see them. Sometimes the new improved version is so subtly different, you can’t actually notice that anything’s changed, but if you look at all these little changes over time it’s like a small child you see in front of you everyday suddenly becoming a teenager and you never even noticed. It’s quite amazing, and shows how our website has changed organically ¬†over the years without me ever really realising that anything is different. That’s one clever Boss for you. Looking at it the other way, it may just be me that’s fairly unobservant.

So, anyway, have a game of spot the difference and take a look at how our jigsaw preview has developed. It’s now 3D-tastic so you really get to see how your personalised jigsaw will turn out. There are a few different designs; a topical Valentine’s Day heart shaped one, one with heart shaped pieces, a birthday puzzle and two sizes of regular photo jigsaws, to which you can add your own text.

These are so brilliant instead of birthday cards or as little photo gifts. And did I mention they now come in an amazing new 3D preview? No? Well check out our awesome new 3D preview!

Whilst there’s nothing like being brought a cup of tea or coffee in bed, there’s really nothing like having it brought in your own personalised mug.

A perfect gift for Mother’s Day this month (March 30th, forget or face damnation!), show you appreciated her at least once this year.

Once you’ve brought her morning coffee, chuck the dregs in the sink and top up with gin. She’ll love you forever!!!!!!!!

I feel I haven’t bestowed enough love on our soft and cuddlesome dogs, so today a suggestion for Valentine’s Day before it cones up and bites you in the behind in manner of small moggy. Our soft pups come wearing a tee or a hoodie that’s all ready and waiting to be personalised, so you can add your own image, phrase or message. Or you could use one of our templates to convey a special message to show your love or make your loved one smile and melt faster than a Malteaser under a an elephant’s bottom.

Personally, I think if you’re going to celebrate the feast of the amorous St Valentine, you have to abandon all hope of being cool for a good 24 hours, and unleash your inner squashiness. You may not want to show this slushy side of your nature to your mates/collegues/kids, but just for one day, be as lovey as you like.

Having explained yesterday about our quest for the perfect plastic headless man, I thought today would be the perfect opportunity to show you some of our latest templates. Easy to use and great for any occasion, we’ve done the design for you, all you need to do is choose the text, font, colour of t-shirt, and the picture if you want.

A happy birthday version of a tax disc here, but we’ve done the hard work, so you won’t find it taxing at all!

or take a look at how they work on our personalised mugs, this one’s a classic!

Or for a perfect personalised gift, take a look at our stuffed, yet hugely huggable dogs, who come complete with their own mini custom t-shirt.

With only a few days left until Valentine’s Day, rain pelting down outside and warmth a distant memory, the only shopping to be done is from the relative comfort of your sofa.

So to save you from trudging round the shops, clueless and soggy, searching for that ever evasive gift, we’ve got a range of Valentine’s Gifts for you to put your own stamp on and send to your loved one.

Mugs, mouse mats and personalised teddy bears are just some of the gifts you can make unique. So take a look at our templates and add your own message, click and buy. And then snuggle back down on the sofa with a job well done!

Today is the boss’s ahem-th birthday. Parties all round and to celebrate, balloons, some cake and a lovely personalised t-shirt (I know, it’s a bit coals to Newcastle, but he’s getting on a bit and won’t notice it’s almost the same thing as last year, and the year before). We’ve got some lovely new templates to utilise for the big day though, so I’m sure he’ll be thrilled at seeing his designs used so appropriately!

Take a look at some of our other templates and items and see how your can make someone’s gift really special.
