It’s that time of the year again, the time of year where we start thinking about what we are going to gift our loved ones for Christmas, or if you’re on the ball start purchasing! gifting adults can be tricky, you never really know what to get them do you? I often find myself heading down the personalised route and that often brings out smiles on recipients faces.
Although we are far from short of places to shop when it comes to personalised gifts I doubt I am alone when I prefer a company who makes it simple and easy.
What if I told you, you could order online from a certain company, all completely affordable and collect them the same day whilst you do your grocery shopping? You’d think I had a little bonkers right? WRONG!
You see, You are able to do all this with TESCO! Yes, that is right. Certain Tesco stores are unavailing personalised photo products and more ready for collection the same day. I just had to check it out.
Here is how simple it was.
I headed over to Tesco Photo’s website where I took a gander at the products which Tesco had to offer. My first impressions were great, Tesco has so much to offer in terms of gifts with the personal touch, from frames and cups to aluminium photo prints. There really is no limit to gift ideas on their website.
After spending a good few minutes checking out all the products that Tesco had to offer my mind was in overdrive. I had so many ideas about who to gift what and I have never felt so organised.
I ended up ordering:
- 11″ x 9″ Jigsaw Puzzle – £15.00
- Photo Notepad and Pen – £3.95
- Medium Single Sided Suede Cushion – £19.50
- Medium Jute Bag – £10.00
And all this came to £41.03. It was available to collect the next day however, my phone broke and I didn’t get the notification. Typical. When I eventually went to collect my goodies (8 days later), it was super easy. All I had to do was go to the Tesco Photo store, it is a bit like the Tesco Mobile section in some stores. Show my order number and say my surname and the lovely lady brought them out to me.
My finished products
Jigsaw puzzle – £15
The first product that I got out of the packaging was the 11″ x 9″ jigsaw puzzle. I love the idea of having your favourite picture printed on a jigsaw, it’s just quirky and a bit different from the normal photo paper in a frame. I won’t lie, I was a little disappointed with how this turned out although it was my fault for picking a photo that wasn’t of best quality. However, had I have gone for a photo that was of better quality I am certain that this would have been incredible.
Photo notepad and pen – £3.95
I love, love, love this. At just under £4 I’ll be honest I wasn’t expecting much but oh my word! It is gorgeous, and at £3.95 it is a major steal. there’s a good amount of paper within this notepad and every page is lined on one side and plain on the other giving you the best of both worlds. The paper is quite thick meaning that you’ll have a hard job letting the ink run through which again is great!
I loved this item so much that I have actually gone on to order a few more and I can say from knowledge that the pen writes amazingly. Nothing beats a pen that glides easily. At this price I am certain that I will purchase a few more for Christmas gifts too!
Medium Single Sided Suede Cushion -£19.50
I am so happy with how this cushion turned out. I have quite a few photo’s of Shaniah scattered around the house and when I saw these cushion’s I just knew I had to own one. It makes a great change from having endless amounts of photo’s up on the wall. The photo actually came out really, really well on the cushion and again, it’s definitely something that I will purchase again, especially for special occasions.
Medium Jute Bag – £10
I really feel I saved the best until last here. This photo Jute bag is honestly so beautiful, I purchased it for my nan for Christmas however, I really wish that I bought it for myself. I won’t lie, when I opened it it took my breath away. It really is made to perfection. Again, this is something that I have gone on to purchase again, who wouldn’t?
I am absolutely taken aback by the products I purchased from Tesco Photo. In true Tesco fashion, everything is top quality yet super affordable, I think this is what will make Tesco Photo stand out from the vast amount of photo printing services. Overall, I am absolutely loving the range of products available through Tesco Photo and I am sure to be using their service often. Massive thumbs up.
