The Perfect Last Minute Gift | Custom Mugs and Water Bottles Toronto Ottawa
What kind of gift giver are you? Do you start Christmas shopping in July and have everything bought and wrapped weeks before Christmas or are you a last minute shopper? Despite my good intentions I am a last minute shopper, but still want to get something perfect that people will like and use. (And that doesn't look like I did it last minute.)
Custom mugs and personalized water bottles make the perfect last minute gift because while they may be affordable and easy to get, they do show care in the photos and text you put on them. Oh and you can actually use a mug or water bottle so it is a practical gift too.
Here are some ideas if you are looking for the best gift to get right before Christmas here in Toronto or Ottawa. (We ship too, but that may require a bit more time that us tardy gifters don't have. Ask us though and we will definitely try our best!)
1. Phone or Social Media Photos
Coming up with the perfect mug design is as simple as scrolling through your phone, Instagram or Facebook. Silly or sentimental, a photo mug (or water bottle) is a gift that celebrates the relationship you have with the person you are getting the gift for. It will put a smile on their face. The only trouble here is choosing just 1 (or 2) photos to use.
2. Inside Joke or Favourite Saying
Is there something that the person you are shopping for is always saying? Put it on a mug. Or is there a funny running joke that existsbetween just the two of you? Get in on a water bottle so they can smile with every sip. Text designs are simple because you just need to select the font type and colour. Done and done.
3. Inspirational Quotes
The internet is full of them so if you are looking to inspire with your gift, do a quick search and use it for your mug design. Maybe they have a favourite book or writer or thinker or comedian. Pick a good line to upload easily in our Mug Customizer.
4. Meme Mugs
Memes are everywhere so if you want to be funny instead of inspirational, customizing your mug with a meme is a good way to go. You could even turn your own photo into a meme. Just pick the photo you like and add some classic meme text for a super funny gift idea.
5. Customize One Of Our Designs
If you are a super low on time be sure to look at one of our customizable designs. The fancy design stuff is done, you just need to let us know what text (and colour, if applicable) you want to see on the mug. We really want to make things easy for you and there are a variety of designs to choose from.
Order Online in Minutes or Come into Our Stores - Ottawa and Toronto
You can design and upload your image at the same time as you are placing your order. It really can take literally minutes. Or you can pop into the store and design it here with us. Just know that during the last minute holiday rush - there are a few of us last minute shoppers out there - you may not be able to get your mug right away. Always just ask us first if you need it in a hurry and we will do our very best to accommodate your requests.
To help you out, know that all our mugs get boxed up nicely with paper bags and tissue paper at no cost for easy gifting. (We do not use Christmas-specific bags, but just to make things easy peasy. We also do not gift wrap mugs, but can direct you to the nearest spot to pick up some paper.)
As an added bonus we are located in People Power Press Ottawa and Toronto stores, which have a variety of cards if you need one to go with your gift, as well as other great gifts if you have a few more holes on your shopping list.
We aren't Santa's elves, but we like to think we could be. Happy holiday shopping!
