I was given the chance to try out the website and make a couple of personalised gifts for Christmas. I was very impressed with the selection of Christmas Gifts available on the Moonpig site. There are choices suitable for the youngest members of the family through to the very oldest, each with the fun factor associated with the Moonpig brand. For example there are some fabulous Gift Boxes featuring a selection of hand picked gifts which fit a theme such as Breakfast in Bed, Chocolate Bake Off and Grow Your Own Dinner. Each comes with a personlised gift card and a free greetings card and prices start at £25.
The website is really easy to navigate. You choose which gift you want to order and click through to the 'Next Step' to explore the personalisation options. From there you can change text and add photos where possible. The changes are reflected in the product image so you can see how they look. You can also see a preview photo which is a nice way to see the end product before you commit to buy. Gifts can be sent to your address or direct to the gift recipient, making it a great option for people you won't be seeing over Christmas.
I made a Personalised Black Sheep Beer Gift Set which includes three bottles of personalised ale, a glass tankard and a packet of Nobby's Nuts. The labels on the ales are already perfect for gifting, featuring some humorous, inebriated cartoon Christmas characters with names such as Sozzled Santa, Randy Rudolph and Plastered Penguin, you just simply add a name. Or can can be a further creative by changing the default message to something more personal, and you can even add a photo to replace the cartoon image. It is very simple and straightforward to do.
Delivery is made within three working days, but the parcel often arrives on the very next day if ordered before 2pm. Great service!
The ale gift set came well boxed in a Moonpig Gifts Box. The items are each individually wrapped in tissue to keep them safe.
The three bottles of beer looked brilliant personalised with both text and photos. I was very impressed with the quality of the printing and the tanker and nuts add a little bit extra to the gift. At just £20 this is a great value gift idea for the man in your life.
Again, the process is easy, clicking on the part of the design you want to change opens an edit box where you can add personalisation. I picked out a funny penguin design t-shirt which has an option to add a photograph of a face. There are some editing options on the site to rotate, zoom, flip, add adjustments and effects to the image to enhance the end result.
The photo I chose is one of my son pulling a ridiculously funny face as he photobombed a family photograph. It is my son's 'thing' to pull the most ridiculous face at the moment the shutter clicks so it is a nice way to preserve one of these moments in T-Shirt form forever! It never ceases to make us all laugh, so I'm hoping it will bring some hilarity to Christmas!
The T-shirts make lovely stocking fillers or small gifts, which are guaranteed to bring a smile. You could get co-ordinated ones for the whole family and sit around the table eating Christmas Dinner in matching T-shirts!
The quality of the T-shirt itself is very good and the printing is crisp. My photo isn't as perfectly aligned as it could have been, but that is down to the photo not being straight on and my son not having a face that fitted the aperture, but I think the quirky angle adds to the humour!
The personalised T-shirts are £14.99 and there really is a design to suit anybody's taste. They come in a plastic bag to protect them in transit and just look brilliant. Competition for the festive jumper methinks!!
I really enjoyed tinkering about, designing personalised items on the Moonpig website. I love how you can have a go at making any number of products and reviewing how they would look before deciding to buy. It was actually a lot of fun just to have a play! The range is really good and in keeping with the humour of the Moonpig brand. The service was good, delivery was super fast and the products are of excellent quality and really made me smile. It's a fun place to get thoughtful gifts that you know will be well received by your loved ones.
