Personalised Garments and Gifts give a great Feelgood Factor

Over the past few months, many of us have been separated from loved ones for long periods of time when we would normally catch up in person. Speaking to those nearest and dearest or seeing them remotely whilst not being able to see them physically is a poor substitute. And that's where the personalised garment or gift comes into its own.

Designing your own message and uploading it is a simple process. And from there the "I love you Nan" or "I miss you Grandpa" can be easily conveyed by being printed on to a garment. Templates help reinforce the feeling behind the message - "I heart" or the "Keep Calm & Carry On" motif which can be adapted to suit the customer's needs.

The great thing about personalised gifts is they are able to convey sentiments in a meaningful way during periods of absence. Somehow in an inexpensive way they bridge that gap. You can give a hug on a hoodie, t-shirt or a cushion - with the right mantra such as "Put your head on my head" - immediately loved ones feel connected especially if a photo is uploaded alongside the words.

This also works with occasions when people would normally celebrate together. Sending all your friends a "Happy Birthday" message mug with a group photo of you with that friend gives a wonderful connection between you all - likewise if you want to drink to that occasion - design your own engraved hip flasks are the way forward!

Nostalgia is very important in these times and remembering events which meant something in times gone by. It may be a reunion with school mates, a trip abroad or going to an event like an open air concert - all of these can be easily pictured on a garment. The Premium t-shirt showing the group of best men who all travelled to Prague for a stag do, the hen night personalised hoodie which involved a weekend in Bath, the time you saw Stevie Wonder in Hyde Park pictured on an American Apparel fitted t-shirt, all of these memories matter.

Meanwhile sporting personalised gifts are a big hit - a special message on a personalised golf towel for your best mate who loves the sport, a contrast sports shirt showing how much "Keeping Calm and Keeping Fit" can do for your health for that cousin's birthday who doesn't like leaving the sofa! Also the many teams be it supporting a football team or training for matches - a personalised sports duffel bag is a great way to focus the mind on what you care about. They come in fabulous contrast colours with strong straps being very hard wearing.

Of course when at home it's especially nice to salute those people who are physically near and living under the same roof. Families have been thrown together often for long periods of time with the children at home. Getting a new personalised garment for home school is a fun way to enjoy education remotely. There are also all the household tasks to attend to. Maybe a new cook has emerged in the family - in which case a decorated apron with "Dad, King of the Kitchen" may well give a boost to meals' cooking!

There are so many ways to make people feel cherished and happy and personalised garments & gifts do just that. Emotional well being is enhanced and just to say even from a distance "Thinking About You" or closer to home "Thank You" makes people think about the sentiment behind the message and that above all you care.
