Valentine’s Day personalised gift ideas

There is nothing like a personalised gift to say “I love You”, so with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I was pleased to get the opportunity to purchase some free gifts from Snapfish.

Now in our household, the boys don’t like being left out of any special day, so I said they could each choose something for themselves, as well as joint gift from the three of us to their Dad. Son1 decided he would like a t-shirt and he took a photo of one of his favourite characters from Super Mario on the TV screen. Once his image was uploaded to Snapfish, he added some text and a celebration border.

Meanwhile son2 remembered how they had both designed notebooks for Father’s Day last year and wanted to make one featuring his most loved teddy. I recommended he take his photo in portrait format, based on finding out last time that very few of the designs worked well with landscape images.

Then on to the gift for Dad. I was thinking along the lines of creating a photobook with snapshots of our favourite family memories. However I was overruled by the boys who decided he should have large fridge magnets. And that these should feature the photos they had taken rather than family shots. Do I have a sneaky feeling that Dad is only going to be the owner of the magnets for a very short time, before ownership is changed.

However they did let me take responsibility for designing a Valentine’s Day card, so I chose an image of the three of us for him on a square card. This did take some effort as there was a huge choice of almost 500 designs, which I admit that I didn’t look at them all. After looking at the first few pages, I stopped and did a search for the word “We” instead which returned 12 results. And finally I spent the last of our credit on a few extra photo prints.

Despatch was very prompt and everything was well packed. I was very pleased with all our items apart from one thing. Son1’s t-shirt is enormous. Not the size we ordered. And even more surprisingly, an age 12-14 size that didn’t even exist on the product order page, older than all the options available. Work that one out if you can!

Finally the prices paid. The t-shirt was £7.99, the notebook was £5.99, the magnets were £3.99 each and the card was £2.29, so all good value in my opinion.

Picstick photo magnets review and 25% discount offer

I recently received a code to order 9 free personalised photo magnets from PicStick. It took some deliberation to decide which of my many favourite photographs to choose, but eventually I was ready to upload my choices to PicStick.

My photographs were all stored on my computer but it says that you can upload from your computer, tablet, phone, Facebook account or even from Dropbox. You do need to create a PicStick account to get started. And it was then a simple process to upload to PicStick. Then you click on one of your photographs and choose whether to crop it or rotate before saving to the photo magnet sheet. You also have the option of not using the photograph if you wish to change your mind. Repeat until all 9 slots are full on the photo magnet sheet. I chose 9 different photographs but you can use duplicates if you wish.

Then add the photo magnet sheet to your basket. Again you can order multiple copies of the same sheet or you can create additional sheets. Checkout is easy with payment options via card or paypal. Your uploaded images remain in your account if you wish to reorder again at a later date. And dispatch was amazingly fast. I received my photo magnet sheet in less than 48 hours.

A sheet of 9 personalised photo magnets retails at £9.50 or $14.99 and shipping is free. You may select to pay in either currency.

I was really pleased with these photo magnets. The sheet easily separated into the individual magnets and they stuck on my fridge beautifully. The boys enjoy rearranging the display. I think the price is fantastic value at just over £1 per magnet. And they are thin enough to slip inside Christmas Cards to send to other family members.

And I have an offer to pass on to my readers – 25% discount off PicStick personalised photo magnets with code: “MUMJD25”. So with the discount, you can have a sheet of PicStick personalised photo magnets for just £7.13 and the discount may be applied across a purchase of multiple sheets.
