Our Top Five Personalised Photo Gifts

Our Top 5 Photo GiftsPhoto by Yiqun Tang on Unsplash

If you’ve read Mum’s the Word before, you’ll know that one thing my family and I are really keen on is personalised gifts. In the past we’ve reviewed everything from jewellery to chocolate with personalisation in place but something we also love is personalised gifts where we are able to use our own photos to create something. With this in mind I thought I’d take you through our top five favourite ways to use your own personal photos to make a sentimental gift that your family will love.

Photobooks

These days, it seems as though people take more photos than ever, but rarely print them off or put them into photo albums. That’s why we love photobooks. They take the hassle out of sticking your photos into flimsy plastic pockets because it’s all printed straight into the books for you, and you can also choose your own colours and designs to accompany each page. We also love the fact that they can be made into chronological order so you’re literally watching time go by.

T-Shirts

This one probably depends on taste, but something we enjoy giving and receiving is t-shirts made with our favourite photos. After our beloved Chuck passed away, one of Husband’s favourite gifts was a t-shirt that the girls made him for Father’s Day. It’s a lovely reminder of our boy and gives Husband the chance to proudly show off one of his favourite photos. Plus, we get to take our biy with us wherever we go, which is always a bonus.

Cushions

Last year, on my birthday, the girls had a photo cushion made for me with a picture of Burrito Baby’s face on it, and as well as giving me a good laugh when I opened up the wrapping, it’s something that brings me joy every day! I even snuggled up with it on the sofa a few weeks back when I was feeling poorly and it helped me to feel much better. What’s not to love about that?

Calendars

My in-laws live in the US, which means that we don’t get to see them as often as we’d like, and keeping them up to date with photos of the girls is really important. This year, we’re planning to take a photo of Sausage and BB every month and then make a photo calendar with an image of them on each page. It will make a lovely gift and you’ll be able to see how they change from month to month.

Personalised Cards

My Grandad lives in a care home, which means that the last two years have made it really tricky to see him. We try to make personalised cards for him for every occasion and it brightens his day so much to get pictures of Sausage and BB. In fact, because the cards are so lovely, my Mum usually buys a frame for each one when the occasion has passed and leaves them on his bedside table so that he can see their smiling faces every day!

Lily Blanche Locket Review

We’re huge fans of personalised gifts in our family – we’ve got everything from mugs to cushions to canvases with photos of our favourite memories on them. We take a lot of photos and using them to make gifts is a thoughtful way of sharing them. Just recently, a company called Lily Blanche got in touch and asked if I’d like to review their range of personalised jewellery, and with my Mum’s birthday coming up, I thought it would be an amazing gift for her.

The range of necklaces to choose from is stunning, with most available in gold, silver or rose gold, and a choice of chain length so that you can have it made to your exact specifications. I chose the Blue Topaz Vintage Heart Locket in silver and chose two recent photos of Sausage and BB for the inside.

I’ve had lockets in the past where you have to place the photos yourself, which is a HUGE pain – getting the images small enough and cutting them up can be so fiddly. However, the beauty of Lily Blanche is that you upload the photos digitally during the ordering process and they place the images directly into your locket.

As you can see, the outside of the locket is intricate and ornate and the quality is stunning. The images printed inside are great quality, too, especially considering they’re so small! Here’s a little bit of info from the website:

“This Blue Topaz Vintage Heart Locket necklace features a heart-shaped, faceted-cut, high grade blue topaz gemstone at its centre. This heart locket necklace opens to take two photographs or a little keepsake.

The Blue Topaz Vintage Heart Locket is inspired by a necklace from the jewellery box of my grandmother, the original Lily Blanche. The heart locket necklace features as its focal point a faceted-cut, blue topaz gemstone surrounded by a collar of marcasite. Blue topaz symbolises sweetness and affection. Blue Topaz is known as the stone for happiness. The heart locket necklace opens to take two photographs or a little keepsake and is one of our bestselling locket.”

Something that I was also really impressed with was the packaging that the necklace came in – the tissue paper which is used to surround the box inside the ribboned gift bag was infused with essential oils which smelled just like Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle! There#s also a velvet bag included for keeping your locket safe.

Lily Blanche gift box and bag

My Mum was absolutely thrilled with her gift and I loved seeing her face when she opened it and saw the girls looking back at her. I would highly recommend Lily Blanche’s personalised jewellery if you want to create a gift with real meaning, and with Christmas coming up, now is the perfect time to check them out.

Thanks so much to Lily Blanche for making my Mum’s birthday so special. We’ll definitely be back again!

Princess Cut Diamonds, All You Need To Know

PRINCESS CUT DIAMONDS, ALL YOU NEED TO KNOWPrincess cut diamonds are as romantic and dreamy as their name suggests. They have been very popular for they are classic and have a sparkly look that is very attractive to the naked eye. Princess cut diamonds feature an inverted pyramid with a square side and four oblique sides that allow for a brilliant sparkle because of the many facets they have. If you ultimately decide on getting a princess cut diamond or moissanites, here are some practical considerations to take into account.

  • Price: Princess cut engagement rings are less expensive compared to their round cut counterparts because there is less wastage in the creation of these diamonds. This is a great quality to look for especially if you are working on a tight budget.
  • Astounding Design: The square classic shape of a princess cut diamond makes it a very extraordinary engagement ring. They are considered to be a modern shape which is mostly preferred. This element makes it easier for the princess cut diamonds to be incorporated into different settings and styles which give you a lot of designs to choose from.
  • Clarity: A princess cut diamond is almost similar to the round cut as it is a decent hider of the inclusions. Recommended clarity on this diamond is a VS2 or SI1 which should be confirmed clean to the naked eye.
  • Durability: Princess cut diamonds fall short when it comes to this quality, compared to the round ones. This is caused by the square-shaped outlook that can easily chip hence the need to always protect it with prongs. Even though the round diamonds are likely to chip, they do not have a weak point as it is with the princess cut diamonds.

Princess cut diamonds or moissanites are quite versatile, here are some of the stunning options you can have;

  1. Solitaire: A princess cut solitaire can be placed parallel to the ring band. It is held securely by prongs so that it doesn’t fall off.
  2. Chanel set: Here the stones are set into a band itself rather than be held by prongs. Because the stones are square, they are aligned close to each other without any gaps bringing out a shimmery diamond fire.
  3. Three stone design: Princess cut diamonds are set with other gemstones for added brilliance. This frequency features only three stones using small variations of princess cut diamonds, emeralds, or even baguettes.
  4. Diamond with other stones: A princess cut diamond can be used as the center stone accentuated with other gemstones like sapphires, rubies, and amethysts.

Wrapping up, the above features are all you need to know about princess cut diamond engagement rings. This being a great decision to make, just don’t rush it. Availability of great designs and awesome settings, engagement ring shopping can seem overwhelming. Don’t panic, we are here to guide you in making the right decision and choosing an emblem to share with future generations. Trust your gut feeling and all other things will flow.

The Most Eco-Friendly Gift Ideas

The phrase “ecological consciousness” has been added to our vocabulary in recent decades. The abundance of material goods, their reckless and short use, the multiplying and growing landfills, and the destruction of the environment lead humanity to a dead end. The solution is a greener and safer life. There are some simple moves you can make in your daily life to gain greater ecological awareness. Even buy eco-friendly gifts for your loved ones. School supplies, a friend’s birthday or celebration, even if there is no reason for it, you want to make a gift and because you have an ecological conscience, you want your gift to be ecologically similar. So let’s explore some of the most eco-friendly gift options for our loved ones:

Create experiences

Offer experiences instead of material goods. Give your loved ones experiences that will benefit them either by relaxing, entertaining, or teaching them something valuable. Some ideas are a relaxing massage, a yoga or dance class, movie or concert tickets, an online course or an escape room walk. The choices are dozens, but the result is invaluable to the recipient. In the end, no material good can compare to a truly intense experience.

DIY Gifts

A more original, memorable and personal idea is to make something for a gift, with materials you already have without having to throw them away or buy new ones. Some relevant suggestions are to cook a delicious meal, make your loved one’s favourite dessert, make a body scrub with sugar & oil, make an ornament, or create a video with memories that will speak directly to the recipient’s feelings. DIY will not only offer you perhaps the most economical solution, but by making the gift yourself, you make this whole gesture more personal and even more important.

Eco-friendly products

If you decide to give a gift as a gift, prefer it to be ecological. This may mean it is plastic-free, reusable, zero-waste or digital. For example a glass water bottle, stainless steel straws, a bamboo toothbrush, natural & cruelty-free soaps and cosmetics or an ebook. However, among all these fantastic options, one stands out among the others: a piece of jewelry made from ecological materials.

This particular gift not only manages to utilize old recyclable materials creating a new beautiful result but also manages to give a unique character to its holder. Jewellery that has nothing to envy from other industrial products comes to steal people’s hearts with their exceptional beauty. Make such a special gift today to your loved ones, conveying the spirit of ecological consciousness and creation. Find the perfect gift of handmade recycled glass jewellery by MiNiMis company at great and economical prices.

We all love to make and give gifts. But these gifts do not have to be expensive or costly to the environment. Above, we discovered together simple, easy, alternative and ecological solutions for the presents of your loved ones. To make their lives and our own a little better by protecting our environment and spreading happiness all around.

Gift Ideas for the Man Who Has Everything

Gift Ideas for the Man Who Has Everything (All Budgets)

I don’t know about you, but I generally find the men in my life the trickiest to buy for. Whether it’s my 13 year old nephew, my Dad or my Grandad, they always bamboozle me when it comes to gift buying. This year, I’ve started doing my research well ahead of the holidays and I thought I’d share some of the gift ideas I found. There are options from the super high-end (and out of my budget!) to the cheaper but more meaningful, so cost won’t be an issue.

Super High End – Golf Holidays in Spain

If you’ve got a man in your life who loves to golf and money is no object then there are some fabulous options for Golf Holidays in Spain which will be the best gift they’ve ever received! There are packages which include accomodation, meals and green fees to the best golf courses included, meaning that they just need to remember to pack their clubs and some undies and they’re pretty much set! Gift ideas don’t come much swankier than this!

High End – Vintage Watches

Husband is an absolute sucker for a good watch, and while I would never be able to afford some of the ones that he lusts after (we’re talking TENS of thousands of pounds in some cases 😱) there are some beautiful restored vintage watches out there which come in at a much more reasonable price. If it’s a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary, you could even try to find a watch from their year of birth or the year you got married to make it even more poignant and special.

Middle of the Road – Aftershave

In the past, aftershave used to be a reasonably priced gift to give for a special occasion. These days, many of the most popular fragrances for men, such as Creed Aventus, carry prices tags which are closer to the £150-£200 mark, making them a far less affordable option. However, if you CAN afford it, they make a fantastci gift and the price tag does mean that the grangrances are super strong and will last for a really long time.

Affordable – Magazine Subscription

Magazine subscriptions are something that Husband has really enjoyed as a gift in the past. He’s a lifelong cyclist, so last year my Mum got him a subscription to MBUK for his birthday, and getting his copy through the door once a month was a real highlight. The beauty of a subscription is that it lasts for 6 months or a year, so it’s the gift that keeps on giving, and the costs isn’t usually unaffordable. There are mags out there that appeal to a huge variety of interests, so you can really personalise your choice.

Free – Get Crafty!

There have been a few birthdays over the years when I’ve been a bit skint and to be honest, Husband doesn’t like people spending loads on flashy gifts for him anyway. What he HAS enjoyed in the past is when I’ve made him something special, such as a collage of photos from our 16 years together, cooked him is favourite meal, or even done crafts with the kids that he can treasure as a keepsake. It really is the thought that counts and if you use your imagination to find some cheap or free gift ideas, the homemade gifts are often the very best.

Gift Guide for New Parents

Once you get to my age, with two kids of your own, you’re pretty well versed in what is and isn’t useful to give to new parents as a gift. I’ve been through various things like nappy bins (I never really got the hang of our one, to be honest) and wipe warmers to know what I would never buy again, and also remember what was an absolute godsend when my two were little. With that in mind, here are a few suggetions that will definitely be a hit with new parents:

Vests and Sleepsuits

It doesn’t matter how many new vests and sleepsuits new parents buy ahead of their baby being born, once they arrive it will never seem enough. I don’t think there are many parents in the world who have bathed and changed their baby into clean clothes, only for a poo-nami or vomit volcano to erupt! Cute baby sleepsuits are always a winner and the range of neutrals for parets who don’t know the gender of their baby is MUCH greater nowadays.

Takeaway Voucher

In the past, lots of people would turn up with a freshly baked casserole or a stash of frozen meals to make new parents life easier. The modern version of this is buying them a gift card! Either find out their favourite takeaway or go for a delivery service like Just Eat or Deliveroo and have a voucher for a meal delivered. They’ll thank you for making their lives easier AND for making sure they’re getting a decent meal between feeds and nappy changes.

Muslins

As with the baby grows and vests, another thing which new parents can never have enough of is muslins. They’re a fab multi-purpose item which can be used for wiping up spit-up, using as a shoulder guard when you’re burping baby, draping over you if you’re breastfeeding and want some privacy – there are even huge muslins which are made for swaddling baby.

Thermometer

When Sausage was a tiny baby, my Mum and Dad gave us a Braun in-ear thermometer, and we still use it to this day. It’s been an absolute godsend for over a decade and while some people may feel uncomfortable giving a gift which relates to potential illness, it’s genuinely one of the most useful, practical gifts we were given. A few years ago, we were gifted a newer, no-touch model which was fairly new tech at the time and after using it a few times, we actually gave it away and went back to our trusty in-ear model!

A V-Pillow

Although I didn’t breastfeed my two, having a large, v-shaped pillow was a huge help when it came to bottle feeding. I’d sit in an armchair and place the pillow on my lap with baby snuggled safely on top. It meant that my hands were both free for bottle holding and interacting, and we were both comfortable. It’s something that would be one of the first things I’d recommend to new parents, I think.

LoveLox Personalised Locket Review

Beautifully presented personalised lockets. Here in the Mum’s the Word house, we’re huge fans of  personalised gifts. In the past, we’ve made mugs, photo books, canvas prints and even chocolates with special messages on them! That’s why, when LoveLox Lockets got in touch and asked if I’d like to review a personalised locket, I knew I couldn’t refuse.

LoveLox is a London-based company with one goal – providing beautiful bespoke jewellery which is unique to everyone who buys one. There’s a huge range of options to choose from in terms of your finish and engraving, and each locket is engraved, assembled and packaged here in the UK.

The beauty of the personalised locket is that, unlike old fashioned lockets where you have to try to find a TINY photo and cut it out to put it in the locket yourself, LoveLox use a lab quality printer and professional grade glossy paper to place the image directly into each locket before they send it to you. Aside from making the whole process about a million times easier than doing it yourself, it looks about a million times better, too!

personalised lockets on the LoveLox creator

The actual process of creating your locket online couldn’t be easier. Simply choose the images you want to use and upload them to the website. You can move the photos around and crop them as you need to, to make sure they’re displayed perfectly. This is where you can add your engraving, with choices of fonts and letter sizing allowing you to get it just right. There’s also the option to choose a 16-18 inch necklace or a slightly longer one which is 20-24 inches – I went for the latter because I’ve got a fat neck and standard necklaces end to look like chokers on me!

Once the order was placed, delivery took less than a week, and there’s even an option for two-day delivery for just a few quid extra, making this ideal for even the scattiest of brains if you need a gift for a special occasion! The lockets are beautifully packaged, too, so you could happily send one directly to the recipient, safe in the knowledge that it will turn up looking perfectly gift-worthy and gorgeous.

My personalised locketI’m absolutely delighted with the quality of my personalised locket – the images may be small but they’re lovely and clear and the engraving looks top-notch. I wear it constantly, even when I’m just at home, as I love the feeling of having it close to me. As you can see from the images above, I’ve got one picture of Husband with Chuck and one image of Husband with Maureen and the engraving says “Goodest Ones” (absolute pigeon, I’m aware, but we used to tell Chuck that he wasn’t just a good boy, he was the “goodest boy” and it’s something that just stuck).

If you’re looking for a last minute Mother’s Day gift, birthday pressie or just something to show someone how much they mean to you, I highly recommend LoveLox. I couldn’t be happier with my beautiful locket and it’s something that I know will last a long time. The personalisation makes it so special and I can’t imagine anyone receiving one as a gift not loving it.

Head over to the LoveLox lockets page to see all of the different options available.

(I was gifted a locket for the purposes of my review but all opinions are genuine)

Still Nil Nil – A Football Lover’s Perfect Gift

As you’ll know if you’re a long-time reader of Mum’s the Word, we’re fans of Liverpool Football Club. Husband has been a fan his whole life, and when we met I adopted LFC as my team, too. That means that there are many historical games from LFC’s football past that we revisit from time to time, and we’ve been to Anfield as a family for a special day of Liverpool FC hospitality (we also saw Luis Suarez score his first ever Home hat-trick while we were there, which made it extra special).

Perhaps one of the most relevant games to current Liverpool fans is the night of the 2005 Champions League Final, where Liverpool came back from 3-0 against AC Milan to win on penalties and become European Champions. It was an amazing night, and although it happened before I became a Liverpool fan, it was a night that Husband has rewatched with me MANY times, and one in his life that he’ll never forget. A Football Lover's Perfect GiftThat’s why, when I received an email about Still Nil Nil, I knew it would make an incredible gift for Husband. You see, Still Nil Nil have taken these special nights in sporting history and created beautifully illustrated books, containing original poetry, describing the events in detail. There are currently three titles available, costing £12 each; The Treble, based on Manchester United’s historic 1998/99 season, Invincible, revisiting Arsenal’s unbeaten 2003/04 season; and The Miracle of Istanbul, retelling Liverpool’s epic Champions League final comeback in 2004/05.

The Miracle of Istanbul

Josh Clarke, founder and director of Still Nil Nil, said: “It’s incredibly exciting to finally unveil a true passion project, Still Nil Nil. Millions of parents and children bond over their football club – and our books represent the perfect way for parents to pass on their passion, and memories, to their children with an incredible shared experience.

“With Christmas fast approaching, the response to our initial three books has already been overwhelmingly positive. We are delighted to be delivering gifts that football-mad children (and, probably more so, parents) are going to love.”

I can’t wait to give Husband his copy and I think it will be something he’ll cherish. The books are aimed at kids, but I truly think they’re perfect for football fans of any age, and for Liverpool fans young and old, the night in Istanbul will be something they want to remember forever.

There’s still plenty of time to order your copy of a Still Nil Nil book from the website, so head over there and grab one now.

Tween and Teen Christmas Gift Ideas

Buying for a tween at Christmas can be notoriously tricky. Filling a stocking with sweets and LOL dolls is no longer an option and all of a sudden their interests can seem like a bit of a mystery! Thankfully, Sausage is actually SUPER easy to buy for, so with that in mind, I thought I’d share with you some tween and teen Christmas gift ideas. Everything on the list is available online and should be here before Christmas so there’s still plenty of time to grab them yourself.

Driving Lessons

Driving lessons

Okay, so Sausage is only 12, but if our experience with Young Driver last year taught us anything, it’s that it’s never too early to learn to drive! Designed for 10-17 year olds to get a feel of what it’s like to be behind the wheel, Young Driver has over 70 venues around the UK and they’ll learn to drive, brake, change gear, steer, reverse and park. All the key things you’ll need out on the road! Sausage tried this out in Summer 2019 and she had an absolute blast, so it’s something we’d love to do again with her and their vouchers make a great stocking present.

Something Snuggly

Tween and teen Christmas gift ideas

If there’s two things my tween loves, it’s snuggling under a blanket and watching Anime. That’s why I think The Comfy would be another gift that’s perfect for her! She’s a little bugger for walking around the house in shorts and a vest and complaining she’s cold, so a blanket that she can literally wear like a hoody would not only be a godsend for her, but it would also help me keep our heating bills down!

A Unique Gift Box

Wild Hearts Gang First Period Box

Gift boxes and subscriptions are HUGE right now, and just recently we discovered Wild Hearts Gang gift boxes, which encourage period positivity for tweens and teens. The boxes are £29.99 and contain everything a girl needs to tackle her first period, from positivity cards and info leaflets to chocolate and bath bombs – as well as a microwave heat pack and a selection of day and night teen pads. It’s such a great way to help your girls to feel confident about what’s to come and help you to have a conversation which you may have found tricky before.

A Collectible

Teen and Tween gift ideas - Funko POP!Like many other people, our family are BIG fans of Funko POP! Vinyls and we have a pretty respectable collection between the four of us! For Sausage’s last birthday, her obsession was all things RuPaul’s Drag Race related, wheras now, anime is her main love. That makes life really easy as Funko make a huge range of characters from Japanese animation. Whatever your tween is into, you can guarantee there’s a Funko POP! for every occasion!

Art Supplies

POSCA pens

Sausage is a big fan of anything arts and crafts related, and this year she’s learned all sorts of new skills like cross stitch and embroidery, both of which she taught herself. She’s got huge amounts of supplies, but we love to get her things to help her to be creative, so something unique like POSCA pens are a great option. They can be used to write and draw on enamel, ceramics and virtually any other surface, and they don’t bleed through paper. I can only imagine some of the amazing things she’ll make with these!

I hope you found our teen and tween Christmas gift ideas useful and that you all have a very Merry Christmas!
