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.
3. Christmas Figurines

Let customers speak for us
First, let me say the service was EXCELLENT and I was always kept in the loop. I have ordered two figurines and I am very, very pleased. I do plan on placing another order soon.
Can you give me total price 15 % discount if I make three more 3” heads at once ? Please
My boxer boy recently passed away and I wanted a statue of him to put on top of his urn. The statue was smaller than I thought it would be. Other than that, it looks exactly like him! We made several revisions and I was impressed with how quick those revisions were made. Your communication and customer service was very impressive!! Thank you for bringing my boy back to life.
My son, Joshua recently passed, age 24. He had high functioning Autism. He loved life to the extremes! What made him happy was his animals! Especially his cat Hope. She is still with us. She's had trauma in her first year of life. We adopted her from the APL. She attached herself to Joshua and she'd let him carry her around and just hang with him. She even licked his head when he was sleeping. So I wanted to have a picture of her with him. But I seen an advertisement on FB of a life like 3D printing of animals and was excited about it. So I took a chance and ordered one of Hope. I was worried that it wouldn't look like her. Boy was I surprised! It's a miniature Hope. The quality is amazing! I'm gonna put her in his glass niche with a picture of him holding her. (Urn under glass). I would recommend this company to anyone who wants a loved pet in 3D. I want to thank everyone who had a hand in making this beautiful sculpture of our Hope.
Very satisfied with my figurine. I've been looking to create these in bulk. You should definitely have an option at an affordable price to make these in multiples. Many people interested in my figure to purchase. Thank you very much.
Absolutely incredible work! It was exactly what I wanted and received it when they said I would
It was a fun little gift
Thank you so much for the caring of our babies!Your customer service is excellent because it shows you care about us and your product!The statues brought tears to our eyes because we recently lost one of our dogs and they couldn’t look any better,they are amazing! Thank you again and we are looking forward to see the other order of the two new rescue babies we recently brought into our lives.
When I first received the package, as I opened it, it was broken into small pieces, so I had to buy super glue to stick them all together and it really works really well. As for the figurine itself, it seems larger than I thought it would be, but I love it so much. Thanks so much.
The passing of my cat Pippa was quite unexpected. It sent me searching the internet for a figurine to place on top of her urn. I was so nervous her face and eyes weren’t going to be right but I can see my girl in these eyes! My only recommendation I would make to the company would be to slim down and shorten the cat muzzle. These domestic cats aren’t tigers even though they might think they are. I work in the veterinary industry and I will and have already recommended this website. When the time comes I will be a return customer. Thank you for doing such a beautiful job for the memory of my Pippa!
Thank you so much!! It’s like we still have her with us. You have exceeded our expectations, your the best!!!
I’m very satisfied with my fur baby figurine.
I loved each and every work and I had 3-consecutive orders that were accurately done to my satisfaction & my friends’ pleasure for their birthdays,excellent gifts they love very much & I thank my3dselfie eternally for all the great work,Thank you so much!
The service and quality of our dog was so professional and excellent! I definitely recommend this product and service for any pet owner!
The figurines themselves look great, the problem is with the sizing. I advised them that this was a grandmother, a son, and a nine year old, granddaughter, and they made the granddaughter look like an adult.
The grandmother is chunky but looks pregnant. They were only for a diorama, so they’ll be fine for that purpose.
