Personalised products rule!
In the words of Tay Tay, you’re the only one of you, baby that’s the fun of you. Literally octillions (no we didn’t make that word up) of atoms had to come together to make your body and brain, and millions of different personal experiences and genetic codes had to layer on top of each other to make you the special individual you are today – mind-boggling right?
Why not reflect that uniqueness in the things you own? Personalised products allow you to express your creative side and to make something totally bespoke to you – what’s not to love about that? From nifty neon lights that can be bent into whatever shape or message you like, to Love Island style named water bottles and string lights that hold your fave photo memories, there are so many ways to reflect your personality at home or out and about.
The craft revolution
Does embroidery scream ‘achingly hip’ to you? How about knitting? Well if not, you’re behind the times, because crafting is getting a millennial makeover. Every Insta trendsetter seems to be picking up a needle and thread these days. From cross-stitch portraits of Queen Bey, to LGBTQ knitting circles, a new generation of crafters are turning the stereotype on its head.
But why now? Well in the age of 24/7 social media and fast-paced lifestyles, we’re all looking for ways to move away from our screens (much as we love Insta, even we need a break sometimes!) Crafting is intensely mindful, slow paced by nature and has a tangible end result, which has serious appeal in our information driven age – nice!
The power of the personalised gift
And how about gifting something bespoke? Nothing shows you care like a thoughtfully personalised pressie. Hit your bestie up with that water bottle with her name on. Give your boyf some of those photo coasters with pics of your lovely mug inside. Make your mum a gorgeous cross-stich pic and frame it up. We guarantee they’ll be delighted.
