Five Steps to The Perfect Gift

If you’re struggling, here are some Christmas coaster design ideas to get you started.

  • A red nosed reindeer
  • A snowman
  • A Christmas tree

Remember, the space on your coaster is limited, so choose your design wisely.

Step 1 – get creative with a festive design

First, you need to choose your design. How about your recipient’s initials or a seasonal portrait. What’s their favourite colour or pattern? A coaster is an item that is used regularly so consider what will make your recipient smile!

Step 2 – practice makes perfect

It’s important to trace out your idea first with a pencil. That way you can ensure your design is perfect and ready for gift wrapping! Don’t make your design too small, otherwise it will vanish under their beverage! On the other hand, don’t make your design too big and run out of space for any finishing details.

Step 3 – prepare your pen

When you’re ready to start, pump the chalk pen’s nib to trigger the ink flow. Our pens are valve activated to avoid wasting ink. Wait until the nib is fully saturated before you start drawing.

Step 4 – unleash your christmas spirit

Get Started! Don’t worry if you make a mistake, our chalk pens can be wiped away with a damp cloth or Rainbow’s own blackboard cleaner!secret santa gift idea

Step 5 – let your masterpiece dry

Leave your designs to dry for around 30 mins. You might need to turn on the heating for this one!

Ta-dah! – you’re all done! Not only is your gift useful, but it’s personal too! There’s no need to break the bank AND your creative talents will shine through!
