Personalised Christmas Gifts: Adding some Love to Your Presents

Christmas tree with Story Locker gift

The holiday season is upon us, and the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift has officially begun. If you’ve ever found yourself pacing the aisles of a department store on Christmas Eve, desperately searching for anything that doesn’t scream “last-minute gift,” you’re not alone. But fear not, because this year, we’ve got a game-changer for you: personalised Christmas gift suggestions. Yes, you heard it right – gifts that not only show you care but also prove that you’re one step ahead of Santa Claus himself.


Why Personalised Gifts Make the Best Presents

Before we dive into some fantastic gift ideas, let’s talk about why personalised gifts are the way to go. You see, there’s something magical about receiving a gift that’s been customised just for you. It’s like the gifter has cracked the code to your heart’s desires, and they’ve wrapped it up with a bow.

Imagine this: You unwrap a beautifully wrapped package and find a Personal Podcast guide, professional microphone and headphones, and you can select who to get interviewed by to tell your story. Sounds like a dream, but when we say personalised this is really personalised. 

A personal podcast just for you. It’s not just any podcast; it’s about you and your story. A gift that will become a digital legacy and will be listened to by future generations. What other gift can be a better reminder that you are loved and your life experiences are valued. Probably nothing. That, my friends, is the power of personal podcasts by Story Locker.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Personalised gifts? Sounds great, but isn’t that just for those crafty Pinterest people or tech-savvy wizards?” Fear not, because we’re here to make it easy for you. And yes, you can absolutely add a touch of love to your presents without having to enrol in a Hogwarts-style gift customisation course. 


Personal Podcasts from Story Locker

Now let’s dive right into it, shall we? Our first gift idea is something truly extraordinary, personal and touching – personal podcasts from Story Locker. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “A podcast? For a gift? Really?” But stay with me on this one and continue discovering what a personal podcast is. It’s not just any podcast; it’s one that the person you are gifting to will record with a professional interviewer, with professional equipment from the comfort of their home. In a personal podcast, they can tell about their life story, their experiences and memories, love story, family, Christmas memories since today and more. The stage is theirs. We know, everyone has a story and we believe that stories are worth remembering.

After the recording, the podcast will be edited in a professional studio and overlaid with beautiful music. The person you’re gifting to doesn’t even need to move from where they’re sitting. Fabulous, but not finished yet. They also get to keep the professional microphone and headphones. After their personal podcast is edited it will be added to their Story Locker, where it can be shared with friends and family, also preserved securely forever.

Imagine surprising your loved ones with a podcast that takes them on a nostalgia-filled ride, reliving their fondest memories, precious moments, and heartfelt messages to family and future generations. Picture the faces of your grandchildren’s children listening to the voice and recording of your parents, recorded with love and care. So emotional and magical.

And the best part? You don’t need to be a tech wizard to make it happen. Story Locker takes care of all the heavy lifting. Just choose your package and professional interviewer, and let Story Locker magic-makers work their charm. Your personalised podcast will be a gift your loved ones will treasure forever.

When you are watching Oprah Winfrey or Steven Bartlett did you ever think about how would you tell your autobiography and real-life experiences? Story Locker makes this possible with their team of Professional Interviewers. Their Professional Interviewer line-up includes those who have worked at the BBC, Radio One, The Guardian, ITV, Channel 4, Heart FM, Sky, Netflix, Capital FM, BuzzFeed UK, LADbible and more.

To be honest, this is much more meaningful than writing a biography, memoir or a book about your loved one’s real-life story. Listening to the true life story of a family member will engage the brain’s emotional circuits, helping the listener to connect and embrace the emotions behind it.

So, why settle for the ordinary when you can give the extraordinary? This Christmas, let Story Locker help you add a touch of love, celebration, and nostalgia to your presents.

The British-Inspired Hamper

Ah, the British holiday season – a time for cosy gatherings, crackling fires, and, of course, exquisite hampers. While we may not have the dramatic landscapes of Downton Abbey, we certainly know how to do hampers right.

For our second gift idea, we’re taking the classic British hamper and giving it a modern, personalised twist. Imagine giving your loved one a hamper filled with their favourite treats, from the finest British cheeses to artisanal chocolates and a bottle of their preferred tipple.

But here’s where personalization comes in. Instead of a generic hamper, craft one tailored to their tastes. Include items that evoke nostalgia, like their childhood candies or a handwritten letter that adds a personal touch. You could even go all out and design a custom label for the hamper, complete with their name and a festive message.

This thoughtful gift not only celebrates British holiday traditions but also shows that you’ve put your heart into curating something uniquely theirs. It’s the perfect blend of tradition and personalisation, and it’s bound to put a smile on their face.

If you don’t prefer to delve into creating the personalised option, you can add the premium touch by gifting a Marks & Spencer or Fortnum and Mason Luxury Christmas Hamper.


The Memory-Filled Photo Book

In this digital age, we capture thousands of photos on our phones, but how often do we truly relive those precious memories? That’s where our third personalised gift idea comes into play: the memory-filled photo book.

Think about all those incredible moments you’ve shared with your loved ones over the years – family vacations, milestone birthdays, or that unforgettable weekend getaway. Now, imagine gathering those cherished photos and crafting them into a beautifully designed, tangible keepsake.

A photo book isn’t just a collection of pictures; it’s a journey through time and shared experiences. It’s flipping through the pages of your life story, one snapshot at a time. And the best part? You don’t need to be a professional photographer or a design guru to create one. 

Also to add to our first gift idea, when you order a Personal Podcast from Story Locker, your loved one will be able to add their most precious photos to their Story Locker, so their personal podcast and photos can be kept in one place forever.


Adding a Personal Touch to Your Presents

As we wrap up our journey through Christmas gifts, one thing becomes abundantly clear: there’s no gift like a personalised gift. These treasures aren’t just items; they’re expressions of love, thoughtfulness, and the cherished memories you’ve created. When pondering the perfect gift for Christmas 2023, remember that personalisation is the key to turning presents into cherished memories. 

Make this Christmas a time to remember with a personal podcast from Story Locker. It’s not just a podcast; it’s a symphony of memories, an autobiography in audio form, and a Christmas gift that will leave your loved one speechless. Don’t miss the chance to make this holiday season truly unforgettable with Story Locker.
