How did you spend Christmas last year? Did you sit at the table with just your family and talk to other family members via video call? Or did you cook for loved ones and deliver Christmas dinner to their door, so you could still enjoy Christmas together somehow? Last year, we gave families the tip to hang photos of their loved ones in the Christmas tree, as the pandemic made it difficult for all of us to see our relatives and friends.
This year, we’ll fill the Christmas tree with all of the positive moments from the past year. This allows us to reflect on and be grateful for all of the opportunities and good moments that 2021 has brought us. Create a retro photo print garland of the best moments from 2021 or turn them into unique baubles. There have been many more beautiful moments than you might think, so stop and think, look through the photos on your phone and turn all of those wonderful, funny, special memories into photo gifts.
Decorating the Christmas tree can be hard work, but is definitely rewarding. You have to think carefully, create beautiful colour combinations and, as mum and dad, keep an eye on the little ones so they don't accidentally knock down the tree! Once the lights are in, the fun can start: decorating the tree with garlands and baubles. Our unique personalised baubles feature a double-sided photo print, so you can see your favourite moments from all sides. If you prefer the retro photo prints, have them printed by the dozen and add a hole, so you can use a string to make a beautiful photo garland. Create a personalised year calendar, featuring all of the positive moments from the past year. Our personalised rectangular snow globe will also add the perfect Christmassy vibe to any room.
Decorating the Christmas tree and selecting Christmas gifts make for great pre-Christmas fun, but finally getting to unwrap the presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day is the most enjoyable moment of the holiday season. Choose unique photo gifts for under the Christmas tree and surprise your loved ones. Take all of your favourite moments from the past year and create a personalised photo album, personalised canvas, personalised cushion cover or personalised puzzle.
