Hi Christmas But Covid!
First Christmas of the new decade is going to be historic for many reasons and here’s why we think a pandemic which has torn apart lives, families, countries and economies, cannot tamper the spirit of X-mas.
Palm Cake and Wine
With the advent of December, houses start getting decked up with glittering lights, auspicious trees and stars, offices start gearing up for their annual retreat at a club, café, restaurant or office premises with their signature party anthems, ‘Jingle Bell’, ‘Feliz Navidad’ and ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ coupled with palm cakes and wine.
2020 Christmas & Covid
However, 2020 has come with new challenges and it has put into test the accuracy of a popular saying, ‘if you intend to do something tomorrow, why not today? If today then why not now?’, while the world is dealing with a pandemic, let it not play spoil sport with your festive season. We may not be able to physically visit our favourite stores
where the racks start filling up by this time of the year with exquisite gifts, cards, chocolates and items alike but you could still be a Santa for your kids, siblings and dear ones- thanks to e-commerce and digital stores. Experts predict a massive surge in online shopping in fact according to a research, between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day last year, the U.S. Postal Service delivered an estimated 910 million packages — in addition to almost 15 billion pieces of mail. That
includes gifts for faraway loved ones, cards, letters to Santa and those dreaded credit card bills after we put our holiday purchases on plastic’. This gives us all the more reasons to prepare our gifts collection in advance because you never know what may run out of stock the next day. Thus, it was imperative for us to prepare a list of highly
valuable gift items that can make this Christmas a memorable one for you while keeping all the safety measures in mind.
1. Toys For Toddlers
For teens and toddlers, the best part about the big day is the hunt for exciting gifts stuffed inside the stockings or the Christmas tree. Now, if we consider the option of store to mall hopping as cancelled, the search for a perfect gift amidst all the clutter online could be a task. We looked up for a few streams in an ocean full of options-
i) 2020 seems to be the year of resurrection for old school classic toys like Barbie and Super Mario.
ii) The demand for legends like Star Wars and LEGO are also on the rise.
iii) Amazon has curated a list of their potentially bestselling toys which you can buy at a cheaper price during Amazon Prime Day starting from the 13th of October, deals will only last for 48 hours so be prepared for the race. However, you can already add them to your wishlist and cut the chase.
iv) While toys from the yester years are making a comeback, emerging new toys and games are here to teach your kids how to code or spell. They combine technology with fun and learning like the Harry Potter Wand Coding Kit, Really RAD Robots MiBRO, VTech
KidiZoom Studio (Red) and more.
v) It may be easy to impress teens with the upcoming PS5 or the latest gadgets or outfit of their choice. You might want to do some research before opting for the easiest option available.
2. Baskets for your loved ones
i) Prepare a menu, exchange it with your other half or your beloved kin and ask them to pick items of their choice. Make sure that you execute this way in advance so that it can be delivered on time.
ii) What should the menu include?
a)Curate a list of their go to dishes and get it delivered from their favourite restaurant, café or outlet.
b)Make a list of their favourite dry snacks and beverages. Put them in a decorated box with a touching hand written letter. We believe gifts are always best when there is personal touch to it, which brings us to our next section of gifts.

Donate or contribute to a nearby orphanage, elder care or a community social welfare centre. Like you, we too hope that things get better before the 25th, nonetheless we wish a safe and sound Christmas for everyone
I was a little skeptical about ordering a selfie statue of my beloved 4 legged baby who passed away. Was looking for something special to put on top of her urn box . After sending in photos I was not sure the proof they sent resembled her. The customer service team accepted additional photos and worked to make her statue 99.9% accurate. Fantastic customer service . I couldn’t be happier with the statue. Great job . Keep up the good work.
What we received is just amazing. My wife started crying when she saw her father in front of her. It's that good.
The service provided is also top notch. Constant communication to make sure they do it right. You are also well informed every step of the way. This product is just that, unbelievable.
They did a great job very realistic looks a lot like the subject
I wanted to wait before writing my review so I could be fair. Is this a perfect representation of my late cat Ariel? No, but I didn't expect it to be. IE: She was a long-haired cat so I knew that would be tough to replicate, nor did I expect they would be able to render her beautiful, fluffy tail. But what I got is definitely recognizable as her. Even my Google Photos app recognizes the figuine as Ariel, that's how close they got it! And the surving cat seemed to recognize it too.
I will definitely be ordering a few more clones from them!
They did an awesome job, it looks just like my son. I have one and I recorded another one for my mom and dad, they were so happy. It's like having him back in our lives.
I bought for my husband, it took a while to arrive but so worth the wait ~ we love it and it’s the spittin’ image of our Boo.
I received my Ian Brown figure today,I am so pleased about it,he looks exactly like the image I sent,also very well packaged,will be ordering again.
I was expecting it to maybe look a little like my boy Boomer that I just lost. But it literally took my breath away. It was him! It made me cry. I'm so pleased with my statue. 💜
100% impressed with the 3D Selfie of our Labradoodle Rocko. Prompt communication throughout the process too! Highly recommend!
Another clone made from the original and another KnockOut! What else can I say. Perfectly replicated!
Took a while, but well worth the wait. Incredible limeness to picture. Highly recommended
I have purchased many 3D selfies from pet clones, wedding toppers, head selfies to full body. Each one has been a total KO in my book! As close to real as you can get. Very professional and customer satisfaction is their goal!
Waited for a few months for it to arrive. The delay was caused by the Covid outbreak, but it was definitely worth waiting for.
Despite it being only five inch, the face, clothing, pose and expression of the figurine looks more than 90% accurate as the photo’s. Can tell that lots of effort have been put into the details in the modelling and 3D printing, as well as the painting.
Very happy with the product and service. Thank you very much!!
The piece made for me was fantastic!! Definitely will be coming back for more pieces. Only negative is how long it takes but that’s also because the details that are put into it are amazing and it’s been Covid times, so 5 STARS!!!
Thank you My3dselfie my product is exactly what I was looking for and looks exactly like my dog. Great job.
