I don’t think it’s much of a secret that I love personalised items so when I was offered £50 to spend at fotoinsight on gifts I jumped at the chance, with gifts starting at just £1.49 I had so much fun deciding on what to get.
It also might not surprise you that the focus of my personalised items was my animals; in the end I came away with 4 items – 1 featuring them all and then the other 3 featuring them all individually.
My first choice was an easy one – a cushion that I personalised with pictures of them all:
I used a custom template that allowed me to position the pictures where I wanted, to do this I had to download fotoinsight’s software onto my computer this was a quick and simple process. Priced from £12.99 all cushions include the inner padding and the price increases dependent on how much detail / how many pictures you include on the cover. My only bugbear with this product is that the only cover colour they do is white and as I am always so afraid of getting anything white dirty I would have loved to have had the choice of some other colours I think a cream perhaps would have gone well. But that’s not a huge thing and I’ll look past that to my gorgeous animals faces anyway.
Next up came what to do with Sally, and when I saw this I just had to get it:
Costing £5.99 the keyring comes in 4 different designs monkey, dog, mouse or bear and measures around 9cm, of course I had to have Sally on a dog but I’m thinking a cat might look quite good on a mouse hehe, my old keyring teddy was looking a little bit worse of wear, so it was with amazing timing to have this one came into my life, I always lose my keys in my handbag so a big keyring is a must for me – and now it means Sally can come everywhere with me (even if it is just in photo form), and after a good few weeks of being used daily, rained on, dropped and all manner of other awful things it’s still looking in great condition.
Little monster Robbie found a new home in some snow.
Not just for Christmas but for all year! I adore Mr Robbie’s cheeky face peering out from the snow. Don’t worry it’s not animal cruelty it’s just a picture inside a fantastic snowglobe, arriving in two parts you have to put the photos into the snowglobe which I actually liked as it means if you ever fancied a change it’s really simple to take apart and change the photos inside, both sides also hold their photos separately so if you fancied having a different photo each side it would be easy to do that as well. The snowglobe comes in at £6.99 and measures around 9cm.
Last but by no means least we have Artie, and the gift I was most dubious about:
I was convinced this one wouldn’t work, the picture is so close in colour, the white tissue paper against the white bits on his face I was sure it would come back as all white bar the brown on his face and his eyes. So I was truly amazed and really happy when I opened the box and found the above crystal photo frame it is a good likeness to the original photo, you can even pick out the detailing of his whiskers. I know I shouldn’t have a favourite but I think this one just creeps into being it. The frame costs £14.99 and the print area is: 7.4 cm×14.9 cm
Overall I was really impressed by fotoinsight; delivery took around 14 working days their software was quick and simple to use and the payment process easy. I shall definitely be book marking them for future returns when I need reasonably priced personal gifts.
