Holiday shopping for out-of-town family members who already buy everything they need can be challenging to say the least. That’s why I’ve become obsessed as of late with making customized photo memorabilia holiday gifts on Zazzle. Sure most granddads, and grandmas can use practical items like mugs, aprons, stamps and iPad cases - but that stuff is boring to give -- unless it comes emblazoned with adorable pics of the grandkids!
I’ve discovered the secret to fun, memorable and useful holiday gifts – and that secret is Zazzle. Every giftable household item known to man can be festooned with a cute pic of your near-and-dear on Zazzle; from mugs to hats, Christmas ornaments to playing cards, watches to stamps, pillows & skateboards! I haven’t tried out the skateboards yet, but it is only a matter of time.
I’ve made custom-photo holiday cards on Zazzle, iPhone and iPad cases, lockets, aprons, wrapped canvas photo art, mugs, pillows, and Christmas ornaments. It’s simple and fun to custom-design a product on Zazzle, you just need to upload a photo, adjust the positioning, and you’re done. In general the shipping time is very fast too (but always be careful to check the expected shipping date before ordering). This year I’m going to try my hand at watches and stamps!
Apparently you can even sell your designs online to other shoppers on Zazzle. I haven’t explored this option yet, but it sounds fun, and if it is as easy as custom-designing products on Zazzle, it sounds like a no-brainer for anyone with a unique and widely appealing design.
