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
This one serves to all age groups, from your pet loving kid to your movie buff sibling, Christmas figurines play the perfect souvenir for our lives most cherishing moments. How? It
immortalizes that beautiful memory of yours and works as a reminder for your busy
minds. This gift is worth thousand may be more emotions and takes up only a tiny little

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 am absolutely blown away by how perfect the statue of my dog, Sheena is. I was hoping, but not really expecting it to be so lifelike. I ordered this to put on Sheena’s cremation urn, and it couldn’t be more perfect. Their attention to every detail of the subject, is amazing! I love it so much, that I will be ordering one of my other dog that has since passed away. I highly recommend My3dSelfie, to anyone who wants to memorialize their pet, or loved one or anything that is important to them.
Our dog, Sadie, passed away in October. When this arrived, were shocked how much it looked like our Sadie girl. We highly recommend this company. They care about their clients and about quality. We definitely recommend.
Great customer service from the start. They answered all my questions and made any changes upon request. I was able to preserve a memory with my dad for an 80th birthday gift. He was thrilled and stared in amazement.
Absolutely gorgeous statue of my deceased puppy Bayleigh. Looks exactly like her. Couldn’t be more pleased with the final results! They captured all of her special markings perfectly! Awesome job!!!
I am so happy with the way my Bobblehead turned out. It is a Christmas present for my grandson. He is going to love it.
The custom order of my sweet dog who had passed was very life like. I highly give 5 stars.
I absolutely loved it. It was identical to the picture I sent
My 3Dselfie came out absolutely stunning! It looks exactly like my dog Bayleigh! I couldn’t be more pleased!!!
They did an amazing job making my beloved puppy that passed away recently, it is perfect every detail in her face is just like her, when my wife so it for the first time, she cried but this time from happiness, she said "it looks just like her" I sent a picture of it to my mother and she said it looks like is going to move. It is worth every single cent for sure. I will recommend it and I am actually making another in a bigger size!
I loved mine, my in law said it looked a bit different than the picture but it’s suppose to it’s 3d
After my dog Rosie passed away I wanted a way to remember her. The little statuette was the thing! They created her perfect likeness!
I made it for my son and he got such a kick out of it.
My mother collects See, Speak, and Hear no Evil figurines. I got one or myself and my three sisters. It looks amazing. The only thing is on one of my sisters, her glasses are clear so it didn't print the glasses area as well as everything. However it is still amazing.
I have never previously provided a review, good or bad, on an online company. I have had several disappointing experiences with ordering something I’ve seen advertised on FB. I now use PayPal so that I can contest a charge of I don’t receive what I ordered. In the case with my3selfie, I sent the front and side photos of my grandson and received confirmation of receipt. I received further notices as the production progressed and then noticed of the progress on shipping until my actual receipt. The bobble head I ordered was well wrapped and protected. When I opened it, my wife and I were amazed at the accuracy of the product. We can’t wait to see my grandson open it at Christmas. It took about a month from ordering until receipt, but it was well worth it…
I did a little COLOR detailing....added GLOSS BLACK and GOLD in needed spots ( bottons , and belts and shoes, bill on cover) The figure itself is Great !! Thanks for a job well done!! Semper Fi
