4. Create Zodiac Themed Mugs to celebrate the New Year

Say Goodbye to 2020 and welcome in 2021. 2021 is the Year of the Ox – so was 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, 1949, 1937, 1925 and 1913 – so if you know anyone born in those years, Snapfish has the perfect personalised photo mug as a New Year’s gift for them. 

Celebrate Chinese New Year with Zodiac Mugs

For friends and family born in other years, how about checking out our range of Zodiac and Chinese New Year mug designs.
Tip: You can find a more detailed list of Chinese New Year Animals on the blog.

Snapfish Lucky Animal Mug Designs will perk up any morning. Why not create one for every member of the family? It’s easy to create a custom mug with your animal, photo and your name.

What’s your Zodiac Animal?

Chinese zodiac animals have lucky meanings. There are 12 Lucky Animal Signs, and it’s believed that people born in a given year have the personality of that year’s animal. People born in a certain animal year are believed to have attributes of that animal, which could either help or hinder a relationship. What could be more fun, than to gift your friend a personalised mug with their Chinese Zodiac animal and see if they match the personality traits?

Create one for each of the members of your morning coffee circle to ensure perfect harmony before your daily caffeine fix? Happy New Year or 新年快乐 as they say in China. Read our blog to find out more: https://www.snapfish.ie/blog/custom-chinese-new-year-astrology-symbol-mugs/

5. Make your health-kick last Jan 2nd with personalised gym accessories

We all like to make New Year’s resolutions to go to the gym or do our bit for the planet. Make it more fun with Snapfish photo gifts. The key to staying motivated in any new venture is making it fun! 

We’ve rounded up our favourite personalised gym accessories to help you gear up and keep your fitness goals on track.

Make going to the gym fun with personalised photo products

Personalised Notebooks + Journals

Make your own Softcover Notebook, the perfect place to track your fitness goals. A luxurious velvet-touch matt laminate soft paper cover holds 100 perforated, easy tear-out leaves of paper to give you 200 pages to write on. This flexible notebook features rounded corners to help prevent them from bending in your gym bag or locker.

Gym Towels

Luxuriously soft and absorbent Snapfish Beach Towels are perfect accessories for the gym  – you can personalise your towel with your name so you don’t have to worry about losing it.

Water Bottles

Stay hydrated after your work-out and help protect the environment with a re-usable water bottle. These insulated metal water bottles are made out of vacuum-insulated double-walled stainless steel, a leak-proof screw top lid, and a mouth wide enough to accommodate most ice cubes, these popular personalised hydration flasks keep your drinks cold for hours. These personal metal water bottles are the perfect travel companion for your fitness class, the office, or carrying along on a picnic.

Reusable office coffee mugs and travel mugs

Avoid those single use coffee cups. Create a personalised latte mug or photo mug (coloured, glossy and matt mug options available) and add your name so the barista will never call you the wrong name again. Like to drink on the school run/ office commute? Try our personalised travel mugs.
