As September rolls in, it becomes birthday season in my family. Over the next six months, I have to organise gifts for seven birthdays and Christmas. Let me tell you, it’s an exhausting job. Each year, I find it more difficult to find a gift that’s both special and useful. Not this year! This year, I’m getting my family and friends some personalised socks!
Dan turned 29 this month. I had already decided on a fancy restaurant for dinner but struggled to think of a little something to embellish the meal. Since it’s his first birthday as a dog dad, I wanted to find a gift I could personalise with Ted’s face. Printsfield.com are a European business where you can create custom socks online, so how could I not order a pair for Dan?
I’m always a little nervous with gifts you need to personalise; the process can be fiddly and the outcome disappointing. However, I was surprised by how straightforward it was to order. I chose the style of sock, uploaded the photo, picked the colour, and the designers did the rest. It’s worth noting that photos with a clear view of the dog’s face are more effective for a better quality product. Although I opted for my dog’s face on socks, Printsfield also cater for cat and human faces too; no one should feel left out.
Printsfield describe their socks as ‘hilarious’, and I had to agree as I pulled them from the package a week later. In no time, I was presenting them to Dan from across the dinner table; as soon as he opened the wrapping paper, his face lit up! I love the cheerful contrast of Ted’s photo and cartoon style bones. Actually, I’m still shocked at the quality of the photo, and the socks as a whole are better than I imagined. The standard socks are quite large, but Dan said they are very soft and very comfy. Next time, I’ll get an ankle pair.
Overall, I’m happy with my choice of personalised socks. That’s it – everyone will be getting my dog on socks this Christmas day!
