If you want a Christmas gift that’ll keep on giving (that holiday spirit all December long!), a very merry decoration should be at the top of your list. It’s thoughtful, it’s affordable and it’s 100% guaranteed to boost their festive cheer. Not sure which Christmas decorations make the best pressies? That’s what we’re here for – with a bunch of our favourite silly season accessories that also double as awesome gifts.


Christmas ornaments

First up, Christmas ornaments. Forget a 12 pack of basic glitter baubles, personalised ornaments are a beautiful and thoughtful way for your friends and fam to trim their tree! These custom keepsakes can also be a lasting memento of an extra-special Christmas – think matching couple ornaments for your favourite newlyweds or an engraved wooden keepsake to celebrate a baby’s first Christmas. Or keep it a bit silly with colourful accessories, like a personalised bauble that you can fill with sweet treats (just hang them above the grabbing level of little hands!) or a custom doggo ornament to include your best furry friend in the festive fun.

Santa sacks and stockings

If you’re banking on a visit from the big man in red, you best give him somewhere to put all those gifts and stocking stuffers… That’s why personalised Santa sacks and Christmas stockings make such great pressies. Created bespoke with the name of your special person (or pet!), they’re not just something to put out on December 24 – these custom decorations-turned-keepsakes are pretty enough to put on display all December with your tree. Just clapping eyes on them will definitely up the pre-Chrissy excitement!

Wearable Christmas cheer

Quick question: If you don’t wear at least one kitsch Christmassy item on December 25 can you really call it Christmas? We don’t think so. Which is why we’re completely in favour of gifting festively fabulous clothing and accessories. Think earrings that look like mince pies, T-shirts with hilarious pudding puns, a mistletoe oven mitt or a super-cute onesie that tells everyone it’s your first Christmas. We reckon Rudolph would agree it’s so much better than a stuffy button-up.
