Low-Cost Christmas Gift Guide PART 4

If you haven't read part 1,2 & 3 you can do so here.


11. Useful info about: U-Star
'U Star Novels www.ustarnovels.com is the leading publisher of personalised novels.  Our personalised classics are great for children, a fun, yet educational way to get them into reading by making them the lead role of a classic novel, such as Peter Pan or Alice from Alice in Wonderland starring together with 6 of their friends, or even the family pet (in Wizard of Oz). The other main characters in the novels can be personalised to allow the recipient to share the experience with the whole family and friends'.
I was contacted too see if I fancied reviewing one of their books, after having a good look on their website I was very eager to review them.
Out of the wide range of books I choose the 'A Christmas Carol', I asked for 'Alesha Moloney' to be written on the front and on the first page I asked for 'Happy Christmas 2011, Lots of Love Mummy & Daddy'.
I was very excited to see the outcome, would it look cheap? And the answer to that question is, no it looked brilliant! The book was very well printed and the name and message didn't look odd. 
Why don't you pop on over to their website and have a good look, for children and teens how about


  • Alice in Wonderland
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • Peter Pan
  • The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
  • The Railway Children
  • Anne of Green Gables
These are a great way to get teenagers into reading!

The books retail for £16.95, are made in the UK and delivered within 7days. I personally think it's a little bit on the pricey side for a personalised book but don't let that stop you from ordering one!

12. Useful info about: Bounsprint
Are you thinking of something unique and special this Christmas, then Bonusprint is your answer. They are an online printing company that specialise in high-quality photo printing service. They have a huge range of products that are great gift ideas.

It is easy and quick to use, all of Bonusprints products are finished to the highest standard, and the paper used is of the highest quality.

There wasn't a chance I would turn down the opportunity to review some of Bounsprint products, who would turn it down ey?
It was 'very' hard to choose which products to order because there was so many wonderful gift idea's to choose from!
In the end I ordered a snow globe, canvas, fridge magnets and a glass chopping board.
Each and every item arrived very well packaged, it was a wet and miserable day outside but it didn't matter because they products were well wrapped up, very secure.
The snow globe was bigger than I expected and the picture was perfectly inserted, I ordered a picture of Alesha with MR.B on her 1st Christmas when they was both dressed up, so that is a snow globe I will treasure forever, thanks Bounsprint!
The chopping board and the fridge magnets were also very well done! I ordered a black and white scenery picture to be put into the chopping board because my kitchen is black and white. Nearly every visitor that goes into our kitchen gives a positive comment about the chopping board.

The print out on the canvas is brilliant, no smudges or mishaps! Each product is retailed at a very sensible price. 
If you are looking for a personalised photo gift then I would suggest taking a look at Bounsprint's Christmas Shop, they have a wide range of wonderful products at affordable prices.

'Fourteen years ago we started our mail order catalogue with a handful of the best selling American hot sauces we could find. Dave's Insanity Sauce, Blair's After Death, Endorphin Rush, Ass Kickin', Iguana, Crazy Cajun and Mad Dog Inferno to name but a few'.
'Thanks to our customers enthusiastic response we have grown to a fully fledged web business with products being imported from all over the world'!
I'm not too keen on spicy food but MR.B would never turn his nose up at food prepared with chilli!
We were sent a unique selection of hot chilli sauces from Hot Headz. These are a 'must have' gift for every man's Christmas stocking!


MR.B has so far tasted two of the hot sauces and is really happy with the outcomes. He said "as soon as a drop of the sauce touched my tongue I could feel the heat". He is over the moon to have a collection of hot chilli sauces and will be putting them to good use over the the coming weeks.
