My Order From Zazzle ♥

I've wanted to try Zazzle for quite a while now having seen the ads and the wide range of products they offer - most of which can be personalised too. I had been wanting to get some personalised Christmas cards this year - wanting to add some pictures of Tyler Lee to the cards, so I thought this was the perfect time to see what Zazzle had to offer. I wasn't disappointed, their range of Christmas cards are just beautiful! In fact, all of their Christmas stock is gorgeous, products that make this festive time of year all the more special.

I went for a folded card with a lovely water colour wreath and 'Merry Christmas' on the front, I always prefer 'Merry Christmas' to 'Happy Christmas', there's just something more traditional about it. I was also able to put a picture of Tyler Lee on the other half of the card as well as a picture of him on the back. For the life of me I can't find the exact card I ordered on the Zazzle website but this one is quite similar and just as beautiful.

I was able to personalise every aspect of the card from the pictures to the text and whether or not I wanted a greeting inside so the cards really are my own creation and personal to my family. The cards also came with matching white envelopes. My cards were €25.70 for 10.

My second festive purchase from Zazzle were these adorable round Santa and Faery stickers. I love anything that has the feel of a traditional Christmas and I thought the artwork on these was just beautiful. I want to wrap red twine around some of the presents this year and I thought that these stickers would be the perfect finishing touch to the wrapping. There are 20 stickers per sheet so any leftover ones will go inside my Christmas cards. These stickers are €5.75 for one sheet of 20.

My next few purchases were far less Christmassy but are just as lovely. I've had my eye on this fab slogan t-shirt for quite awhile now and I'm delighted to finally have my hands on it! I just love the slogan on the front of it - 'Play with fairies, ride a unicorn, swim with mermaids, fly to the moon'. I wasn't sure what size to get, what with being pregnant and all, so I got a larger size and it's almost like a dress now but I actually love it like that, perfect for teaming with my leggings, boots and cardi on these cold winter days. My only gripe is that this t-shirt is quite pricey for what it is at €32.10 and I have found a very similar one for just €14.50...

My last two purchases are baby related and are quite unique - something which I thinks up the majority of the products Zazzle has to offer because they aren't things which you would find in normal shops and I always love the aspect to anything I buy because it makes the item all the more special. I'm a fan of Alice in Wonderland so when I saw this Alice in Wonderland Baby Blanket I just had to get it. It has traditional illustrations from various scenes in the book and it's super soft - perfect for baby to snuggle up in or play on. This blanket was €34.80.

My final item was something I picked up on a bit of a whim. I don't know but I decided to search for the term 'Irish angel' and various things came up including this baby bodysuit and I thought it'd be perfect for our new little one if they so happen to be a girl! It'd make a lovely St. Patrick's Day outfit with a cardi and green tutu style skirt. If baby happens to be a boy I'll pass this onto a friend but I really love the print on it. Again this was quite expensive for what it is at €26.30 and I thought it was white, judging from the photos on the site but it's actually a cream colour.

Overall, I'm very happy with my Zazzle order. Everything turned out great and they arrived super fast too. If I can give you one piece of advice for shopping with Zazzle though it would be to go to the website with specific items in mind, otherwise you could spend hours trawling the website looking for items - they literally have everything you could ever look for in an item! I would repurchase from Zazzle again, but only the unique items they offer such as they're card (the vintage style ones are so beautiful!) and their gorgeous Christmas ranges, I don't think I'd buy the printed clothing again as cheaper alternatives are available elsewhere and I'm always one for saving money when I can.

Have you ever purchased from Zazzle? What do you think of the items I got?

*I was able to choose some products of my choice from the Zazzle website for the purposes of this review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
