Christmas Fashion Gift Guide

It’s just 40 days until the big day. Put bluntly, that’s just one pay packet left. So, have you even contemplated buying any Christmas pressies yet? I bet you haven’t! 

Don’t worry, neither have I, but as usual Zips It Up is here to make life easier. This page of helpful suggestions is likely to earn you brownie points over the festive season.

Whilst a little more time-consuming to order than a straightforward “click-to-buy” type purchase, anything personalised is the way to go. There are literally hundreds of companies personalising anything and everything. But get those Xmas orders in ASAP.

Here are some suggestions – for him, for her, for the folks, for the little ones and for the teens Basically, we have everyone covered.  And it’s all on one simple website:

Here’s my pick of the best.

For Him
Personalised Birth Year And Nickname Organic T Shirt



A great gift, that’s equally perfect for other landmark celebrations too, such as 30th, 40th, 50th or 60th birthdays.

This cool design features the year of birth in a stylish modern font, as well as the option of personalising the design further by adding a name, or nickname, plus an additional phrase such as ‘Awesome since…’, ‘Established…’ or anything else that takes your fancy.

For Mum & Dad

Personalised Single or Double Sided Photo Cushion



A plush faux suede cushion, personalised with your favourite photo of the folks, handmade especially for you. These fabulous, super soft cushions, are made from either faux suede or 100% organic cotton. They’re especially useful for those wanting to give their loved ones a hug when said loved ones aren’t there in person.

For Her
Personalised Handmade Name Necklace



I have two of these. Think ‘Carrie’ in Sex And The City. Design and personalise an original Name Necklace, which is then laser cut and finished in London by hand.

Add a personal touch with this gorgeous name necklace with dainty cable chain. All of the Anna Lou of London personalised jewellery is handmade to order and can contain one name or word per pendant.  Contact them via the ‘ask seller a question’ button with any special requests or queries.

For The Kids

2019 Santa’s Naughty Or Nice Report



Capture the true magic and sentiment of Christmas with a personalised report from Santa. Award points and gold stars for good behaviour and reveal whether the recipient child has made it to Santa’s ‘Nice’ list.

The option boxes allow one to add child’s name and age, and award points for ‘kindness’ ‘politeness’ ‘sharing’ ‘tidying’ and ‘table manners’. Merit stars are then awarded (out of 5) and finally you can opt to place the recipient on ‘naughty’ or ‘nice’ list.

For Inbetweeners

Personalised Embroidered Patch Bomber Jacket



This Personalised Embroidered Patch Bomber Jacket is perfect for fussy teens and ‘inbetweeners’.

Each jacket is bespoke and hand embroidered in the UK, packaged in a customised M&G box (however, please note that if multiple jackets are ordered, they will be consolidated into one box).

Jackets come with a selection of embroidered patches containing your personal initials. You can choose as many patches as you like and where you would like them placed on the jacket. I know my other (fully grown) half would love this.

Each jacket is totally unique and makes a perfect gift.
