Contrary to popular opinion, personalised gifts don’t have to be complicated and time-consuming. These gifts can be fun and easy to make, and the results will be something special and valuable your loved ones will treasure forever.

To help you gear up for Christmas, we’ve compiled a list of simple personalised Christmas gift ideas for friends, all of which can be personalised to suit their tastes and style.


Family and baby personalised Christmas gift photo book

Photo books are one of the best DIY custom Christmas gift ideas for her (girlfriend, wife, mother, or any woman that is close to you). Many people have too many photos saved on their digital devices, but nothing beyond that.

Well, this time, how about you surprise them by collecting the photos you know they like the most, and making them into a beautiful photo book? A photo book is such a thoughtful gift that will let the recipient know you care about them, as you take the time to collect their memories and present them to them.

Take photos from everyday life, or special occasions such as holidays or important events, and watch their reaction as they unwrap the gift and look through the pages.

Tip: if you don’t know which photos to choose, take a look at these themed photo album ideas (including photo albums for travel, wedding, special occasions, and daily life!).

This gift is perfect for: Mothers, spouses/partners, siblings, close friends. You can also consider buying or doing yourself a scrapbook.

Canvas Print

Beautiful family portrait canvas print

Ah, canvas prints. It’s a go-to gift that is beautiful as much as it is versatile, and it makes for a beautiful wall art gift. The great thing about a canvas print is, you can give it to pretty much anyone, and it would still be a well-loved Christmas photo gift as long as you know what to put on it. Here are some ideas on what to put on the canvas print, depending on who you want to give it to:

  • For a family member: Family portrait, a shot of family candid moments;
  • For a shutterbug: One of the best photos they’ve clicked;
  • For a traveler: Their favourite travel shot;
  • For an artist: Their artwork;
  • For a poet: Their favourite quotes or lyrics.
  • If you’re looking for an alternative, other wall art such as mounted prints or collage posters would also be great Christmas photo gift ideas.

This gift is perfect for avid interior fans, artists, shutterbugs, travelers, parents.

Photo Calendar


With the year coming to a close, now is the perfect time for calendar gifts. While a generic calendar might seem too impersonal and ordinary, a calendar full of milestones and important moments is nothing like that.

With a personalised calendar, not only do you get to choose the photos that you know will bring smiles to the recipient, it also allows you to note down any upcoming celebrations in the year.

Reminders of birthdays, anniversaries and other occasions will surely be useful and much appreciated.

This gift is perfect for Close friends and family.
