Get cozy with a custom cushion

This season's all about hygge – and what better way to transform your cozy space than with some customized cushions featuring your own pictures. You could get arty and use abstract macro shots of leaves, foodstuffs, or colorful scenes – or dig out your favorite holiday photos for reminders of warmer climes.

Better yet: use family portraits or pictures of your flatmates to assign them their very own cushion – no more arguments when it comes to sofa-based film time.

Pick a perfect puzzle

Got something special to say, or want to remind someone of a favorite event of the past 12 months?

Delayed gratification is a glorious thing -so use a special photo to create a jigsaw puzzle and pack off the pieces for them to open on Christmas morning. Maybe choose a picture of a surprise holiday destination overseas, or if you're more locally-minded, pick a shot of your favorite place and plan a weekend getaway for the new year?

This is a particularly clever way of sharing news of a new baby: you could use a photo of your bump to send to a close relative or friend – or maybe even propose with a photo of you on one knee.
