What are the best last-minute heat-printed Christmas gifts?
Christmas Eve boxes have become extremely popular over the last 5-10 years and they always include a fresh set of Christmas Pyjamas.
What's a Christmas Eve box we hear you ask? A box filled with Christmas treats that adults and children can use and wear as a pre-Christmas treat to get them in the festive spirit.
We bought this Adults Christmas pyjama set with a t-shirt, bottoms and a matching gift bag from Towel City on Ralawise.com for £9.95. This set comes in a Pink and Grey colourway, but there are lots of other blank pyjama choices on there for adults and children too.

2. Christmas Apron
It goes without saying that Christmas time includes a lot of baking sweet treats and drinking festive tipples.
That's why this combination is an instant win.
A festive apron is perfect for all ages and you could even go as far as to print matching ones for parents and children too.
We bought this black adult apron from Premier on Ralawise.com for just £4.50.
It comes in an amazing 50 colourways which means you can really turn heads with some creative design designs and make your products stand out from the crowd this year.

3. Custom Tea Towels
Keeping with the festive baking and kitchen cooking theme, why not print a custom tea towel to mop up those Christmas messes with?
A tea-towel is a kitchen staple all year round with many people purchasing specific kitchenware for the month of December.
This specific tea towel is from Westford Mill on Ralawise.com and cost us just 50p!
It's 100% cotton so it will wash and wear for years and years to come. It's available in 5 different colours, Black, Natural, Peach, Grey and White meaning there is a colour for every client's kitchen.
Be warned, these tea towels are LARGE! 50x70cm in size, they will take a large transfer to fill or perhaps you can add some Christmas typography down an edge for a space-saving choice. But luckily, due to the low cost of a blank itself, you can afford a little extra cost when it comes to your heat-applied decoration choice.

4. Christmas Tshirts
Christmas Jumpers are worn and loved by the masses through December, but what is being worn underneath them?
There is an enormous market for Christmas Tshirts during the festive season. You could even bin off jumpers altogether and undercut that market with a lower-cost tshirt alternative.
We purchased this Bella+Canvas 3001 T-shirt for just £3.48 from Ralawise.com. In comparison, a hoodie or a sweater blank comes in at a £9-11 price point which is a significantly higher purchase price for your business.
Christmas t-shirts are a great casual piece of clothing too so it's likely your consumer will buy a couple of these for the whole month.
Imagine: Your t-shirt costs £3.50, your transfer costs up to £1, your sale price is £15. You've made over £10 profit per shirt and it's still considered a lower-cost piece of festive merch.

5. Custom Socks.
Look, we know this example doesn't have Christmas designs on them, but they so easily could!
A simple Christmas Pudding or Christmas Sprout design and you could be competing with the likes of OddBalls or Happy Socks for festive stocking fillers!
This pair of socks are from Build Your Brand on Ralawise.com and they come in black and white and cost just £1.45! Competitor brands are selling Christmas Socks at £10-12 a pair. Just think of the profit!
Or you could go down the personalisation novelty route by heat printing custom pets or faces onto them!
The possibilities are endless!
Yes, you should've started earlier, but all is not lost.
