A blog series to inspire festive gift ideas and get you in the Christmas mood. We’ll be bringing you tips and gift ideas ahead of the big day (the one with jingle bells, not wedding bells).

Christmas drinks made photo-worthy 

Have an already growing collection of mugs but still seem to want more? (We get it).  Our range of mugs are super personalised to you, making them a perfect stocking filler or Secret Santa present.

Here’s two of them, but if you’re wanting to shop the full range, check it out here: https://www.photobox.co.uk/shop/personalised-mugs 

A fine-looking sip 

We’ve taken the original personalised mug and coloured the inside, so every hot, cold or boozy sip of your beverage is as good as the last. 

Personalise the outside of the mug with your favourite snaps, maybe a holiday selfie or a photo of your pets looking cute (as per).  Our mugs can hold up to 18 photos, meaning you don’t have to worry about picking which photos will make the cut (spoiler alert: it’s all of them). 

The coloured insides come in a range of bright and vibrant colours; blue, red, pink, green and metallic gold and silver. So whatever the occasion, there’s a colour for you and after all. It’s what’s on the inside that matters, right?

Add a little bit of magic

Stick the kettle on, you just won Secret Santa.Introducing our Magic Heat Changing mug. Wait, magic? Heat changing? This is sounding like something from a certain book about wizards.

Personalise your mug the same way you would with any other Photobox gift, with your favourite photos and stories, of course. The difference? Yoursnaps will be hidden underneath a black heat-sensitive coating which can only be triggered by, you guessed it, heat.

Pour the boiling water into the mug and watch your photos come to life, just like magic. Potter could ~never~.

Photo Blocks for something (extra) special

It’s time to decorate for the festive season, but you’ve got no space left on your walls. Where are those office party snaps going to go? Turn those never-forget stories into photo blocks instead for some free-standing fun (not a phrase you hear every day). No need to frame or hang, just pop them on a flat surface.

Not allowed to leave holes in your walls? No problem. Our photo blocks are made for those who don’t want to commit to a hammer and nails, making them perfect for renters or those who love to redecorate every two weeks.

With two styles to choose from, Wooden or Acrylic, you’ll be able to deck the halls whilst sticking to your interior aesthetic. 

Christmas Eve activities, sorted  

Maybe you like  doing jigsaws just for fun, or you’re sort of, maybe, probably addicted – either way,, our Personalised Jigsaws are the perfect gift this Christmas. With a range of different sizes, from 49 up to 2000 pieces, this gift will keep someone quiet for a while. Pass the Baileys.

Each jigsaw allows for one photo, so choose wisely. You never know, it might be framed for everyone to see once it’s completed. 

Made with extra-strong recycled card, our jigsaws come in a personalised box to keep all the pieces safe. No more losing that one corner piece underneath the sofa…

Look back on the good times when reaching for the turkey leftovers… 

Turn your fridge into a mini scrapbook of memories with our Photo Fridge Magnets and Magnetic Photo Booth Strips. Who said only the inside of the fridge can be exciting?

Our magnets are fully customisable, allowing you to add your best photos and proudly showcase them on your metal surfaces. With a stylish white border (very Instagram) and a flexible material, these magnets are great for families with little ones and pets (wipe those unidentified spills away).

Want to be more creative with your table settings for the big day? Personalise each magnet with a member of your family and pop them where they’re sitting (saves the annual Christmas drama of who’s sitting next to who).

No matter what gift you’re looking for, you’ll find it at Photobox. Check out our Christmas Photo Gifts range and get into the festive gift-giving spirit.
