Christmas Present Ideas

Gifts xmas

Here are some Christmas Present Ideas if you have you ground to a halt with your Christmas shopping. Certain people (men, teenage boys!) can be very difficult to buy for so I hope that this gives you some inspiration.

For a general present which suits everyone buy some A4 size picture frames and create a fun print on your computer along the lines of the Optical sight chart below. Instead of random letters, create a personalised print with your own message such as “Live, laugh, love” or “The best dad ever”, whatever fits!
