What to say and how to say it - a guide to good Christmas Garment & Gift captions

Christmas is traditionally a time for friends and family to celebrate together . And in these strange times maybe the party won’t be as big as it normally is, but the sentiment behind Gift giving stays the same : to convey the right meaning behind that heartfelt message on a present, and how better to do it than on a design your own garment or personalised gift.

You (almost) can’t go wrong with choosing the traditional words ‘Merry or Happy Christmas’ and then the person’s name or place in the family in other words ‘Happy Christmas Grand Pa’ on a personalised hat or cap for example like a custom embroidered bobble hat to keep him warm in the Winter. You simply select the template of your choice to reflect the character of your message. Maybe you are someone who likes bold capital letters or conversely you may prefer a more italic graceful feel. Either way in the case of a personalised cap it comes with the letters beautifully embroidered. Simple but effective.

Taking another arbitrary example, say you choose to design your own apron for your Mum or Dad (presuming one of them has a hand in cooking in the household) then the message could be as straightforward as “Christmas Cook 2020” or “Queen / King of the Kitchen!” There are so many apron colours to choose from and you can select either print or embroidery depending on your preference.. If you want to be a tad more creative with your design then in addition to using lettering why not make the choice to add in a Christmas layout?

Some of TShirt Studio’s Christmas layouts include the addition of an appropriate photo as well as letters. It could be a family related photo when you were on holiday enjoying a walk on a clifftop for example. Or just picturing people’s faces as a couple or bigger gathering. The household pet could also get a look in! The list of layouts is a real tempter to add in character to your personalisation. A simple Christmas tree, Snowman , Father Christmas or pile of presents - there are many to choose from.

There is of course always the opportunity to add humour into your message. Seeing the funny side of things can really unify a group. And here as is pretty obvious it’s important to get the tone right . So best not to use for a gathering of teetotallers: “ Christmas cheer? I thought you said Christmas beer"…..as naturally it won’t go down well. Puns can be fun to incorporate “There’s snow place like home”, “Believe in your elf” , “Rebel without a Claus” or “But wait there’s myrrh” to name a few.

Christmas is the season of Goodwill and a time to appreciate those close. And often a personalised gift or garment can bridge the gap between those who are for whatever reason geographically separated at this time of year. The opportunity to just say ‘This person is loved by’ and list the people concerned or to use the “I heart” message - the Love themed layouts are of course relevant at any time of year.
