mixblox from

I always bang on about how I love personalised gifts. Photographs. Photo products. Anything that can help us preserve lovely family memories. I do think with smartphones and tablets now, it is so easy to not bother printing anything out. I’m guilty of it! I had a mad spree of photo printing when Piglet was a baby. She is now 3 and we really need to update our photo wall! Special occasions are always a good time to do this and with Valentine’s Day coming up, printing out some special photo memorabilia is always a good idea for a gift. I have the pleasure of working with again this Valentine’s Day and I’m really thrilled at what we received.

You will also be pleased to know that you too can benefit from this collaboration! Click here to get up to 5 FREE MIXPIX Photo Tiles from

More About offer top quality with a lowest price guarantee and offer a variety of personalised products such as photo prints, canvases, acrylic prints and framed photographs.

There is free delivery when you spend £45.

They also offer photo cushion prints, as well as blankets and towels. Some other products include mugs, mouse mats, phone cases, puzzles and calendars.

I was impressed with them previously. My eldest still adores her cushion and I was keen to choose some new products this time.

What Did we Order?

As I was spreading the love this Valentine’s Day, my Mum asked for an acrylic print of my three kids. I had a slight internal panic that I may not have a picture of all three of time. It is a bit like getting blood from a stone.

However I found one and I ordered her a 20 x 20cm print that currently retails at £14. Some fantastic discounts at the moment. Here are some more details about the product.

  • Crystal-clear acrylic glass with polished edges
  • Brilliant colours and enchanting depth effect
  • Gleaming finish for a contemporary look
  • Best-price guarantee for the UK

I then decided I wanted something for my desk when I return to work (however since I have received them, I am debating keeping at home). I chose these MIXBLOX which are retailing at £6 each at present. More details about this product. I ordered 5.

  • 25mm-thick acrylic glass blocks
  • Vivid reproductions of your photos
  • 5 x 5cm format with impressive 3D effect
  • Collect them, stack them, mix them up together!

My Thoughts on

The order came really quickly and I was really excited to see; mainly for my MIXBLOX.

I wasn’t disappointed. I have to admit it’s always so hard taking a picture of a picture but my Mum’s acrylic print was great. Really vibrant and brought the picture to life. I couldn’t obviously put on the wall, as passing on but think she will love. I’ve never had anything on acrylic before. It came with a mount, so can be easily put on the wall.

I was even more impressed with my MIXBLOX.  They are so cute! I love the size of them and how they stack on top of each other.  I have had to prise them off my eldest as she has wanted the one of me. They are little little building blocks and just really original! Definitely one of my favourite photograph products. At £6 each as well,I thought they were quite a bargain.

I loved my picture products from and would definitely recommend something from them this Valentine’s Day!

    I love those mixblox! Such a lovely idea, and perfect for a desk, too. I’m also guilty of not getting around to printing things out – before cameras on phones took over, I used to make photo albums of all our trips, but haven’t done that in years. I’ll have to check out their photo books too, as it’s so nice to have them in a non-digital format to look through.
