Personalised Clothing from Vistaprint


Vistaprint offer a wide range of customisable small business marketing products (business cards, signage, labels, stationery etc); but did you know that they also offer personalised clothing & caps, totes & backpacks and even fleece blankets! They recently conducted a survey that showed that people value personalised gifts as it creates an authentic connection. Nearly 59% of respondents in the survey mentioned that they would keep personalised gifts much longer. And I concur with that. It feels nice to receive a personalised gift which shows the love and effort the giver has put into it. With that in mind, I put their personalised gifts service to a test and ordered a sweatshirt for Mr.H. The designing process was simple and in less than 10 minutes I had placed my order online.

The Fruit of the Loom classic hoodie, I ordered, is made from 80/20 cotton Belcoro® yarn/ polyester blend and feels like a good quality product. The cut is ideal for layering and the hood provides extra warmth. There is a kangaroo pocket in the front. I had selected a 3D alphabet to be printed on the hoodie and the printing was sharp. You can choose to have a logo or clip art printed instead. You can even add a design for the back, if you wish. There are a few different options to customise and you can play around with them to get the desired results.

Personalised Clothing from Vistaprint


Mr.H liked the sweatshirt. The hoodie seems to be good quality and the printing also appears to be good. He is happy with his gift! If you would like to order a personalised piece of clothing for a loved one, check out www.vistaprint.co.uk

Princeton Tec SNAP LED Head Torch 


For someone who is into hiking, trail running, camping or any other adventure activity, the Princeton Tec SNAP LED Head Torch would make a very practical and useful gift.

The build quality is good (like other Princeton Tec products we have used) and it has a modular design; so you can remove the main head unit from the headlamp bracket and use it with the provided accessories for handheld operation. Whether you are in the outdoors or in your backyard or garage, the SNAP is bright enough for all situations.
