Can anyone tell me where the rest of December went? Time is flying by, especially when you're behind on your gift guides, though thanks to speedy shipping there's still plenty of time to turn last minute gifts into something a little more special. I've teamed up with I Just Love It, the Aladdin's Cave of personalised gifts, to bring you my top picks whether it be for the festive season or perhaps a little treat for yourself.
The first item to catch my eye was the Personalised Christmas Cake Tin (which you may have seen on my Instagram Stories). If you've followed my blog for a number of years you'll know I love to bake and can't wait to spend the majority of next week baking sweet for all my family and close friends. Measuring 18.5cm by 18.5cm, the tin is still perfectly sized for filling with treats for a loved one. The tin can be personalised with any message of your choice, this tin has three lines for you to fill. I decided to follow suit to the picture on site by adding the family surname, though ditching the established year and mince pie banner for something more suited. We're all a big fan of the simple white design, holly leaf and bold black text. When I spotted this tin I just knew it had to feature on LW, whilst the tin is smaller than every other tin I have in the house, it's the perfect size for one particular item I bake religiously when it comes to special occasions - my ultra cheesy, chorizo pastry's. I'll be sending my Dad off to work on Christmas Day with this festive tin now that his colleague is obsessed with them as much as we all are. The guys have gotta be treated well when they're to work 12 hour shifts all over Christmas. Whilst I may be later sharing the tin on LW, there are still OTHER regular tins which may be better suited for gifting available on the site, whether it be Christmas & Birthdays. At £19.99 the tin is certainly more than your regular tin, but this is something I'll be excited to pull out year after year.
Another item I was very lucky enough to receive which you'll see cropping up on LW & have seen on Instagram Stories, is my very own Christmas Engraved Spoon. This retails for £6.99, though if you've missed the shipping date you'll be pleased to know that you can also buy regular versions of engraved spoons - perhaps a better idea so you're loved one can use it all year round. The spoons engraving is some of the best I've seen, there's no way this spoon will be ruined. Made from high quality beechwood this is the perfect gift for a budding baker.
My last item I can't stop raving about is this Monogrammed Cup & Saucer, in which I've used my Grandad's initials as a little extra for him. He insists on drinking coffee out of a tea cup, even if the mug is fine china, it has to be a tea cup. The quality again is superb, whether it be the cup, saucer or the printing. There's not a single fault. The Cup and Saucer are fine china, dish washer safe and can have up to three initials incorporated into the design. This would be a great gift to keep in mind for up-coming birthdays, house warming & more. With Urgent Delivery, there's still time to have one whipped up, not to mention still an incredible amount of gifts on offer from I Just Love It.
Have you heard of I Just Love It? I can't recommend checking out the site enough, the selection of gifts, not to mention the quality and speed of all personalisation is fantastic. Lucy xxx
