Get personal with Zazzle

Zazzle is one of those companies that the more I use, the more I adore; recently I got to try out some of their personalised range, which is so vast. This particular feature of Zazzle allows you to design anything from t-shirt’s to bathmats and bibs to blanket and add on your own photo, making a real limited edition piece for yourself or a family member.

First off I’m going to talk about the item featured in the header, I am sure many of you may be thinking it looks a little weird and I’ll agree, cut down it leaves you pondering what quite is going on with the image quality, well let me explain.

Zazzle Bathmat

It’s a bathmat, now first and foremost I need to tackle that line down the middle – that is my own fault (or perhaps my parents), it arrived flat packed and in great condition, however I left it at my parents for a while – with Ash being ill I got a little behind with photographing things and they folded it in half for storage, which isn’t perhaps the best idea as you can see. I am hoping in time it will flatten out, but please don’t let that put you off.

The selection of bathmats on Zazzle is actually really big when you add in the pre designed ones however, I of course went with the create your own option which starts at £18.95 for a small mat (16″ x 24″) and goes up in price across the choice of medium and large. All the mats are made of a high density memory foam and I have to say are of a really good quality.

I’m not sure what I was expecting with this item, not much at all at a guess, but it really is a great bathmat, I’m actually reluctant to use it, stepping on Sally just doesn’t seem right at all. My Mum liked it so much she is even thinking of not only buying herself one, but using them as Christmas presents come December as well.

Zazzle Purse

Next up I went with a purse, I was slightly sad that they didn’t have a large purse in stock at my time of buying however I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the medium and it probably, in fact, suits me a lot better. The inside includes lots of space such as areas to keep notes, cards and coins.

Zazzle Purse

I totally adore this purse (I mean how couldn’t I with Sally’s face on the front of it). This particular choice of purse is made of faux leather, with the area of personalisation a type of cloth; what’s more if you can’t find a photo that quite fits the whole of the image area, there are a vast number of colour choices when it comes to the background.

As I said there are larger options for purses and of course there are also smaller as well, which include nylon and denim options – so there really is hopefully something for anyone. I am looking forward to seeing how this stands up in the long run to my incessant purse overfilling ways (please say it isn’t just me that hordes receipts).

Zazzle Mug

Last but by no means least is a mug; now if you have been around the blog for a while you will know that 1) I have a mug addiction and 2) you may also realise you haven’t seen those dogs on the blog before. Well I actually gave the mug to a friend and those be her lovely dogs sitting pretty on it.

Zazzle Mug

Made of a strong ceramic these mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe and can be finished off in a colour of your choice, they hold 325ml and are the perfect way to enjoy your hot drink on the cold nights that are coming. The mugs are so simple to personalise and if this particular type of mug doesn’t suit your needs there are a number of others to choose from.

From choosing these items, I found that Zazzle is an easy to navigate website and putting together all the products was really simple – the hardest thing is deciding on the items you want to buy. When it comes to quality all of the items have received from Zazzle both for this post and in the past have been great, they have stood up to use and I wouldn’t be embarrassed buying them for friends and family.

If you are looking for some personalised items for yourself or as a gift I really do suggest checking out Zazzle.

What do you think of my choice of items, have you tried Zazzle before?

    Aw that is adorable I love the personalized mat and purse although like you I would be afraid of using it too!

  2. Penny @OnePennyTourist

    Awesome doggy items <3

    I love Zazzle, I even have 2 stores of my own, I am ridiculously addicted to playing around on their templates or browsing through all the items – darn place is going to cost me a fortune this Christmas, haha.

    I've even looked at those purses a few times (No, you're not the only one who hordes a huge wedge receipts – you become kind of committed to keeping them too don't you? Because if you have a clear out, your purse stays huge as it's stretched and things fall out, LOL)

    Even if you don't have you're own photos and stuff, there is a TON of unique designs there which is so refreshing to see when most of the time we only see mass produced items in shops. Virtually everything is customisable.

    Great to hear your items were good quality, especially the bathmat as I'd actually wondered about those!

    I have shopped at Zazzle numerous times. I love their selection there.

    If I could get my three boys to sit together I would love something like this x

  10. Carlee C

    I could totally use this for this years holiday gifts. Hubby needs an updated mouse pad and my father law could use a new coffee mug with the kiddos pictures.

  11. Pam

    I love that mug! I need to check out Zazzle and make some cute Christmas gifts.

  12. Mummy Lala (Laura)

    I’ve not used Zazzle before and didn’t realise they had the personalisation service.

    I love the bathmat idea, I’m not sure what image I’d use though. It would feel odd stepping on say – my little boys face ?

  18. Jacqui @ Mummy's Little Monkey

    I do love me a personalised pressie – they’re perfect for the grandparents back in New Zealand! I’m thinking maybe a pillowcase with my face on it for my Mum, so I’m the last person she sees at night, and the first person she sees each morning. 😉

  31. Phoebe @ Lou Messugo

    I agree it would be funny to find yourself sitting on your dog (naked!!) but these do look like fun products and I’ll be sure to check out Zazzle.
