Personalised Gift Ideas this Christmas {DIY Photo Calendar}

Something we find hard at Christmas is being away from our family! We moved to Australia from New Zealand over 10 years ago and whilst we love it, we miss our family and friends! It’s hard year-round at times, but the distance is amplified every year at Christmas!

I love gifting thoughtful and personalised gifts at Christmas and with Vistaprint I was able to use their templates to create these beautiful personalised calendars for our family for 2020 (and at such an affordable price). Incorporating photos is always a good idea (especially if there are kids or pets involved!) and mini calendars are so easy to pop into the post!

The mini calendars were so easy to create online using some of our favourite family photos. We picked the template on the Vistaprint website, uploaded 12 of our favourite photos and one for the cover page, approved the draft and simply ordered! It was incredibly easy and time-effective.

Because we have so many family members overseas I chose the mini calendars to make posting more affordable. I love that Vistaprint have such a wide range of personalised Christmas gift ideas, from coffee mugs to t-shirts to reusable bags (I can vouch for the quality of these bags too, as I’ve previously used Vistaprint for business printing) and more! I also added personalised gift tags with a photo of our family, making our gift giving more personalised this year.

Do you have family who don’t live nearby too? I really relate and know how tough this time of year can be. I would love to know your gift ideas when you’re not able to come together at Christmas!
