With the Christmas countdown well and truly underway, there’s no better time than now to begin your Christmas gift shopping. After all, if there’s anything that the previous years have taught us, it’s that there’s nothing worse than leaving it to the last minute and having to suffer through the three-day trading blitz before December 24. You just know that the stores will be packed full of people, pushing and shoving to get their hands on the last gift left on the shelf. The sheer thought of the Christmas shopping rush is almost enough to convince you that maybe Scrooge had it right!
However, there is a solution to avoiding the crowds this Christmas: you can always buy your gifts online, or make them yourself. A truly heartfelt gift that your recipient will really appreciate is their very own personalised Christmas bauble.
Where did the idea of decorating our tree with baubles come from?
Just like tinsel and the star on top of the tree, baubles are a Christmas decoration essential. They don’t just look pretty – they have a very symbolic meaning behind them that originated from the Roman tradition of hanging fruit from trees. Over time, baubles replaced the fruit and became the popular ornaments that we know and love today (plus, we don’t think fruit would last very long in our hot Australian summers!)
The perfect keepsake and decoration
Personalised Christmas baubles are one of the most popular gift choices because there’s just something about the way they add a classic yet warm touch to any tree or home. Not only does a custom bauble make a beautiful decoration, but it’s also the perfect keepsake that will be cherished for years to come.
However, who really has the time to do it themselves (and in legible handwriting), considering most DIY projects aren’t always cheap, easy to do, or time-efficient?
At Christmas Elves, we have the solution: create and design your very own personalised Christmas bauble from our online store. Pick your favourite design from our three listed below for a unique gift for your loved ones.
3 types of DIY personalised baubles
- Photo bauble: Add a special touch to their Christmas tree with a plastic photo bauble. Simply put a photo inside it and attach to the tree with the red ribbon provided. It’s the perfect little gift for newlyweds, first-time homeowners or the grandparents.
- Plastic baubles with names: Trimming the tree with family names is what memories are made of. Simply pick from the large range of colours, type the name that you want to appear on the bauble and choose a matte or shiny finish. You can even opt to have additional text like the date or a personal message. Our personalised baubles even arrive in a custom gift box for you. Don’t forget one for the family pet!
- Premade with message: Commemorate a special first Christmas with an adorable blue or pink baby bauble. The words ‘Baby’s First Christmas’ are artfully printed in white and is the perfect gift for a new mum.
Nowadays, you can buy Christmas baubles in a variety of styles, textures and designs, such as glass, glitter and plastic. Some are petite at just 20mm and 40mm, while others aim for maximum impact with 100mm and larger! They may be around for just one month of the year, but don’t underestimate the huge impact that Christmas baubles have on the tree as well as in your recipient’s hearts.
