IS FOR per­son­alised presents

Living and Loving - - FAMILY INSPIRATION -

When you have a baby, a present for a fam­ily mem­ber fea­tur­ing a photo of her is a dou­ble win − there’s noth­ing any­one ap­pre­ci­ates more, and noth­ing is eas­ier. The more kitsch the idea, the bet­ter:

1 Use per­ma­nent pens to cus­tomise a plain sleep­suit with the words “I love Grandpa” (or who­ever the present is for), then take a photo of your baby in it and frame it.

2 To make a photo holder from one of your baby’s wooden blocks, drill a small hole into the cen­tre of one side. Take a length of stiff wire and twist one end into a flat spi­ral shape, to hold a photo of your baby. Glue the other end into the block.

3 For­get a photo on a mug – you can per­son­alise al­most any­thing, in­clud­ing T-shirts, boxes of choco­lates, bot­tles of wine, a phone case or a note pad at net­

4 Pop a photo in a locket for Grandma – she’ll love it! Best-ever present for Gogo? Write “A cud­dle from me” on a piece of card, put it in a big box, and wrap it up. Get your tod­dler to hand over the present per­son­ally!
