The term 'design your own gift' sounds like something that's difficult to accomplish, but in reality it's not difficult at all, in fact it's rather easy.
There are dozens of photo gift web-stores on the Internet, all of which offer a wide array of fully customizable gifts.

After you have added your photos and designs, you also have the option of adding any text you choose, maybe the person's name, your name (the giver's name), the date or perhaps something as simple as 'Happy Christmas'. Follow this easy process and you will be able to create your own gift in no time at all!
A few gifts ideas to help you on your way.....
For him and for her
Some of the most popular personalized gifts ideas around include custom tablet computer and mobile phone cases. People just love to dress-up their communication devices in their own clothing - it helps them to distinguish their own devices from the masses.
However, the only way to guarantee total uniqueness is to make your own design - that may be something as simple as a photo of the owner of the device, a photo of their spouse, a photo of their child(ren), a logo or if you have the skills to produce it, your own intricate design.
Other popular custom personalized gifts ideas that are suitable for both sexes include camera cases, photo to canvas prints, dog tags, key rings, mouse pads, mugs, photo bags, umbrellas and watches.
All of these items can be customized with your own photos, logos, designs and text. All you need to do is choose an appropriate product, personalize it with photos, designs and text that you know are dear and meaningful to the gift recipient, and you will have the perfect surprise present on Christmas morning!

Conversely, if you are in need of a unique gift idea for your husband, the custom items that follow may be just what you are looking for...

The bottom line
The secret to finding the best gift ideas for anyone, whatever the occasion, regardless of age or gender, is firstly to make sure the product you choose is something you think they need and are therefore likely to use.
Secondly you need to have a good understanding of their likes and dislikes - for example, if a lady loves her dog but hates cats, you should never personalize her handbag with a picture of a cat, but obviously a picture of her dog would work extremely well.
I know this example sounds obvious and it clearly is, but the lesson here is to make sure that when you design your own gift, you think long and hard about the best way to customize it rather than just personalizing it with the first photo or design that comes to mind!
