2021 seems to be another year full of locked down celebrations. However, don’t see this as entirely negative. As with time on our hands, we finally have the chance to make personalised gifts for our loved ones. We’ve compiled a list of heart-felt (affordable) gifts for every occasion.

 

Photo Collage

As we’re stuck in lockdown reflect on the good times you’ve had together by making a photo collage of all your past adventures. From food to smiles, there are plenty of photos that will make you reminisce over times shared. Photo collages can either be created virtually or by hard copy. Online photo printing services now have the capacity to print photos off on items such as canvases and even jigsaw puzzles.

 

Playlist

Have you ever heard a song and immediately thought of a loved one? Perhaps it was the lyrics or even just the melody. As a gift create a playlist of all the songs that seem to represent your relationship. Whilst this seems small it is extremely heartfelt and as we’re spending more time listening to music, it’s the perfect lockdown present.

 

Hand-crafted items

If you’ve developed a craft hobby during lockdown, or it’s always been a passion of yours, use your skills to create an extraordinarily unique present. From handmade bracelets to hand-knitted blankets, there are many beautiful items you can make yourself. Handcrafting an item shows that you haven’t just bought something but spent time to physically make it. Plus, with bespoke gifts you have the chance to personalise items with the recipients favourite colours.

 

Hopefully these ideas inspire you with your next gift idea. There are also a ton of other ideas online and in magazines. We love using Pinterest to spark our imaginations, whilst many blogs also have great articles on how to hand-make incredibly special gifts.

Energy price increase set for the UK

Consumer regulator Ofgem has announced that the price cap on energy will increase on 1 April 2021 due to rising wholesale costs and growth in demand.

This means that a typical household on a default energy tariff could expect a bill increase of £96 per year.

This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
