Personalized gifts that take time

This year, due to COVID, I haven’t been out much shopping at all and I won’t be hitting any big box stores during shopping season, so I have found some personalized gifts to order that I think will be a hit Christmas morning.

It is the most wonderful time of year and I get so much joy from giving presents to the people I care about I look all year while out-and-about for something just right for each family member.  So whether you turn an old recipe into a kitchen keepsake or take your child’s favorite drawing and bring it to life turning it into a stuffed animal, you are sure to have your gift receivers smiling ear-to-ear with these thoughtful gifts.

One of my favorite gifts to give my family each year is a compilation of our all photos from that year. Usually in the beginning of November I head over to the Mixbook.com website and pick a design and upload all my pics starting from the previous December. I then organize them by month or season and add memories and quotes. Then I send it away to get printed and it is always back by Christmas. This gift is always a family favorite and gives us a good slow down break on presents Christmas morning as we all look through it together and remember the memories we made. Starting at $25.
