Coastal Business Supplies discusses personalised holiday gifts ideas that are cost effective and also have sentimental value.

1. Personalised mugs

Custom drinkware is a big hit year-round, but that’s especially true during the holiday season. Personalised, sublimated mugs are always in demand as they make wonderful gifts for the family as well as stylish holiday décor (such as coffee mug candles). Stainless steel camp mugs are super trendy and are the perfect way to warm up with some hot cocoa. Did you know? In addition to sublimation, it’s also possible to create custom mugs with laser heat transfer paper. You can create vibrant, self-weeding transfers with papers

2. Holiday ornaments

A holiday gift guide would not be complete without ornaments. You can create something truly special and sentimental that will hang on the tree for years to come. Sublimate high-resolution photos that celebrate new members of the family, newlyweds and family pets. No matter what photo or design you choose to sublimate, ornaments are sure to warm the hearts of their recipients.

3. Custom T-shirts and sweaters

Looking to coordinate the perfect family picture? Create matching apparel with fun holiday sayings using heat transfer vinyl. If you have a sublimation printer, you can also use heat transfer vinyl to create your own holiday patterned vinyl or sublimate full-colour designs and photos onto the apparel. Another way to effortlessly produce more detailed designs (as well as transfer photos) is by using heat transfer paper.

4. Home décor

Personalised home décor items are some of the easiest gifts to make, but that does not take away from how special they will be to their recipients. Using sign vinyl, you can create festive wooden signs, decorative plates and glasses and many other kinds of décor. If you’re not finding quite what you’re looking for, you can always search Google or Pinterest for ‘free holiday svg’ and browse through free cut files.

5. Custom socks

Give a gift that will warm their heart – and their toes! Custom socks have a very big market, and there are so many things you can sublimate on socks. In fact, in 2019, Google searches for custom socks will be at its highest ever (nearly double the search volume of 2018).

One of the most popular trends is printing photos of pets on socks – these are great gifts for pet-lovers in your life. Another popular idea is printing ‘If you can read this’ on the bottom of one sock and then inserting your funny phrase on the other sock (like ‘Leave me alone. I’m watching Hallmark movies!’). No matter what you choose to print, you really can’t go wrong giving custom socks.
