The Last-minute Gift Giver

Hello to my lovely readers and my apologies for not writing a post for a bit. Trying to balance working full-time/commuting 2 hours a day/being a mum/doing housework/writing a blog and setting up a business is definitely a challenge and I’m still getting used to using my time effectively. For now though, I am back with a brand new post and it’s all about the perfect service for those last-minute gift givers out there.

A couple of weeks ago it was Bob’s (my husband for those of you just tuning in) birthday and rather than buy him a crappy gift that he wouldn’t really want, I asked him outright for something he had his eye on. Cue a dash to the supermarket and my old friend Amazon, I purchased 2 bottles of whiskey and placed them ready in a gift bag. Makes me sound very thoughtless doesn’t it? but hold your horses! I then decided to get something a bit more personal but with limited time to do it, I knew I needed something with a quick turnaround service.

That’s when I found out that Tesco Photo offer a same day delivery service meaning you could place an order in the morning and collect it after 3pm that day. AMAZING! I’m not usually a last-minute gift giver myself and tend to plan ahead but this year his birthday coincided with my return to work and it all got a bit manic.

Anyway back to Tesco Photo and I found myself in a wonderful haze of browsing their site looking for the perfect gift idea. Bob had got me an incredible necklace stamped with Freya’s DOB on it to wear when at work so I knew I wanted to get something that was all about them. I settled on a gorgeous white wooden photo block with a photo of them on that I knew would look nice on his desk at work and would also be easy to transport about if he moved desk etc. I also picked him up a coaster with Freya’s photo on as well which again is easy to transport and is perfect for the desk or at home.

After the gifts were chosen, I sat back and looked through the site some more and found an extensive offering of products under this service including:

  • photo and canvas prints
  • aluminium photo prints
  • photo mugs
  • placemats and coasters
  • photos blocks
  • and even poster prints

I decided to pick up a few bits that could form part of Christmas presents this year as well as ordering some photo prints to treasure of our own which you can see below.

Not only is the service speedy and efficient, it take that hassle out of ordering personalised presents or photo gifts without worrying whether they will arrive on time or having to pay more on top for guaranteed delivery. I love absolutely all of the products that we ordered and Bob loved his birthday presents so it is definitely a service I will be using again in the future.
