1. Personalised Santa's Sleigh Family Door Mat for Christmas

Best personalised home gift

Specifications
Type: Homeware
Price range: Under £50
Best for: Anyone who has a separate outdoor entrance
Reasons to buy
+Beautifully made +Natural coir
Reasons to avoid
-The message can be personalised, but there's only one picture

Part of the new collaboration between the lovely Stacey Solomon and Amazon Handmade, this is a notch above your average doormat. The natural coir is of a beautiful quality (we like how light it is, not at all orange), and the message can be customised. There's only one picture option, but it's cute and festive, so can't complain.

2. Creative Tops Alphabet Mug

Best personalised mug

Specifications
Type: Dinnerware/drinkware
Price range: Under £10
Best for: Anyone who loves tea!
Reasons to buy
+Pretty design
Reasons to avoid
-Nothing!

Because one can never have too many mugs! We honestly don't have anything bad to say about this timeless design with a choice of cool prints and first name initials. It's impossible not to like and is a failsafe option for those people whom you don't know what to get.

3. Personalised New Home Couples Key Holder

Best for couples

Specifications
Type: Key hook
Price range: Under £15
Best for : Couples
Reasons to buy
+Pretty and versatile design+High quality 
Reasons to avoid
-Only comes in silver

A very useful gift for anyone who can never find their keys (yours truly) or who has multiple bunches (all couples). The design is contemporary and will suit all homes, and the metal used is of good thickness and quality, nothing flimsy. We just wish it came in a gold option, too. 

New Home Christmas Candle

4. New Home Christmas Candle

Best designed personalised gift

Specifications
Type: Candle
Price range: £16-£26
Best for: Those moving house over Christmas
Reasons to buy
+Classic orange and cinnamon scent+Pretty design+Option to upgrade to a mini hamper
Reasons to avoid
-Only one scent option

Who doesn't love a Christmas candle? This may not be the most complex Christmas scent around – it's orange and cinnamon – but it does smell lovely, and the jar with the printed label is very nice. There's also an option to upgrade to a mini hamper that will include the candle and scented bath salts – we'd definitely go for that.

Personalised baking set

5. Personalised baking set

Best quality

Specifications
Type: Cooking utensils
Price range: Under £20
Best for : The baker in the family
Reasons to buy
+Beautiful quality+Handmade +Gorgeous font used
Reasons to avoid
-Wood type not listed

This gift is just too cute, and you get so much in the set! A rolling pin, a chopping board, and a spoon and spatula! The attention to detail is amazing here, and we love the italicised font used for the personalisation – very classy. We're not sure what wood type this set is made from, but it's definitely solid whatever it is. 

Personalised Organic Cotton Pyjamas

6. Personalised Organic Cotton Pyjamas

Best eco-friendly option

Specifications
Type: Nightwear
Price range : Under £100
Best for: Those who need a new set/love organic materials
Reasons to buy
+Organic cotton+Handmade
Reasons to avoid
-Only two colours

These pjs are luscious! They're made from GOTS certified organic cotton and are handmade – their softness will be appreciated by just about anyone, but especially by a friend/family member who knows their materials (if they talk about thread counts in sheets, for example, they'll love this). We wish there were more colours to choose from, but the navy blue and crimson red will suit most people.
