So, before you hit the high street in the hope to find the perfect present, we may have a solution which provides a lasting keepsake that they can treasure for years to come. We’ve put together a list of just some of the best ‘giftspiration’ ideas for new parents, so you can spoil them with the presents they deserve this December!

Casting Vouchers

Casting vouchers available at Image CastingOne of the best ways you can let your nearest and dearest know you care this December is through purchasing some vouchers from us, here at Image Casting. Our gift vouchers can be used for framed casts, free-standing casts, holding hands casts, or customised to suit the needs of the recipient; we even cover a free home visit within a certain catchment area. Otherwise, a kit can be sent to their address so moulds can be taken from the comfort of their home. To purchase a gift voucher, simply complete this order form, and select which voucher you would like. We can send the voucher to you, or we can add a personalised message and send it straight to the recipient.

A Photo Book

It’s likely that plenty of photos will have been taken in the last few months. Thanks to the rise of social media platforms, you will have access to many of these and can create something beautiful for your friend or family member they can physically hold. In recent years, the mass digitalisation of images means that, more often than not, people forget the joy of having physical copies of photographs. Collect all the digital images of their first few months as a family and create a photo book to mark the occasion, and collect all of their memories in one place.

A Personalised Piece of Jewellery

Another great way to signify the first Christmas for families is by gifting a piece of personalised jewellery made for them, An example of our miniatures including something that personalises jewellery, such as a pendant, to relate to their first-born. This gives them a beautiful keepsake they can treasure forever, and something they can wear to keep their child close to their heart. For families with an existing cast that they love, you can turn them into a miniature pendant for either necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks or keyrings. This means that the sculpture can either be worn every day as a constant reminder of their little darling or saved for special occasions. Contact us here at Image Casting for further information on how this can be arranged.

Spa Vouchers

New parents will be rushed off their feet in the first few months of a new arrival and as priorities change, and are likely to have neglected their own health and wellbeing. One great way to recognise all their efforts is by gifting spa vouchers for both parents – along with the offer of babysitting whenever they choose to use them! This will allow what is probably a worn-out pair of hardworking parents some rest and relaxation time to reconnect, and return to the world of nappies, broken sleep and mess everywhere with a clear mind! The lucky recipients will appreciate the thought behind the gesture, and they will be able to use the vouchers at their convenience.

Hampers

The great thing about personalised hampers is that they can include a bit of everything. This gives you the perfect opportunity to prove how well you know the lucky recipients, and purchase things that you know they’ll love or include personal jokes and memories between the two of you. be sure to treat them with some luxurious foods, drinks and cosmetics, they can indulge in during their Christmas holidays.
