zazzle-giftingWhen I get stuck on what to gift someone for Christmas I think about the person’s work, hobbies and personal style. Lots of my pals either travel non-stop for work, or love to travel for pleasure, so I decided to pull together a gift guide on the theme. I love how personalisation of products has become such a big part of gift-led companies, and recently discovered some brilliantly bright customisable designs on Zazzle. zazzle-gifting-ideas

I scoured the site to find my favourite pieces for travel-loving friends and have to admit I’m tempted to order a phew for myself. (Hands up who shops for themselves as well during the holiday season? Guilty as charged!) In fact, I think one should always give a gift they would be happy to receive. No surprise, then, when I write that I’d sure be happy with the gorgeous abstract painted cushion because it reminds me of the gorgeous blue waters of our destination wedding in the Spanish Balearic Islands. My graphic, stripe-loving eye is drawn to the bon voyage luggage tag, too. Also, isn’t the Swedish-inspired Dala horse dinner plate such a treat? I love it! Which of these pieces would you love to gift (and receive!)?

  1. I think about what someone likes to when considering presents. It’s nice knowing that they will use your gift and they know you have thought about them. On that note, it usually takes me a long time to get the right present! I’ll check out Zazzle too.

    I’d be really happy if I received the phone case. The pattern & colours are gorgeous!!


  2. It all looks fantastic. However, as a lover of all thinks map based, I think I that I would love to receive the map poster. There are a few different locations on the site – a great reminder of a special holiday taken
