  • The Forgotten Baby Names – Do You Have An Uncommon Name?

    It’s one thing consulting lists of the most popular baby names of 2018 to ensure you are en vogue when naming your soon-to-arrive bundle of joy, but at Dom & Geri we also like to be a trendsetter. This might mean being truly original in an abstract and not-always-socially-acceptable way, or it could mean adopting a bit more left-of-centre thinking in order to be different and stand out from the crowd.
  • Fun Things To Do With The Kids This Easter

    Kids love holidays; that’s been the law since the beginning of time. They don’t really take much interest in what the holiday is for or about, but if there are two weeks instead of one, then all the better. On the flipside, holidays can be a troublesome period for parents; having to take time off work, thinking of things to do and avoiding fractious cabin fever when the weather is inevitably rubbish.
  • 10 Most Popular Baby Names For 2018

    The excitement of pregnancy brings many new conversations, challenges and topics to research and one of the discussion points that tends to last the full nine months is that of a name for the baby. Whether you know the sex of the baby or not, the name is something you can bounce around, scribble out and re-write, screw up and throw away and wholeheartedly argue about right until the baby arrives, and to be honest, it is not until that little bundle of joy is in your arms that a name can feel right…….
  • Five Ways To Personalise Valentine’s Day 2018

    However long you and your partner have been together, the challenge of making Valentine’s Day fresh and exciting gets more and more difficult as each year passes. Repeating the same gift or gesture might be a cute thing you share between you on an annual basis, but sooner or later your partner is going to want something different.

  • Make Valentine's Day 2017 Extra Special With Personalised Wrapping Paper

    It will soon be that time again, we have just pulled out all the stops for Christmas and made the grand gesture with presents and trimmings, but then before you know it the thinking cap needs to go back on because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. To some people these things come very naturally of course, and buying the right Valentine’s Cards and presents is effortless, but for others, well, we need a bit of a push in the right direction.
  • The Rise in Demand for Personalised Products

    Increasingly, as time goes on, we like to take more and more control over our lives. Luckily advancing technology allows us to do that. Whether it is setting a timer so our dinner is cooking while we are out, or we are taping two programmes while we watch another so we don’t miss out on anything, or we can even talk to someone face-to-face on the other side of the world.
  • Dom & Geri Donate Personalised Wrapping Paper To Minster FM Toy Appeal

      As soon as we move into December everybody’s thoughts turn to Christmas. Okay, many people have it on their minds long before that, but it is the most exciting time of year and we can’t wait for the excitement to begin. But that’s not the case for everyone.   For some children Christmas Day is just another day, and it is not necessarily a happy time.

  • How To Choose The Best Photos For Your Personalised Wrap

    The development of technology has been very kind to us at Dom and Geri. Without digital photography and all the tricks you can do with imaging software, we wouldn’t be able to offer our very popular personalised wrapping paper and cards. We have come a long way from simply pointing and clicking, and right now, the simple act of taking a photo is just the beginning of what is possible, and what you can do with that image you have captured.
  • Matching Christmas Cards And Wrapping Paper From Dom and Geri

    It’s no secret that Christmas seems to get bigger and bigger every year. We start planning earlier, we spend more hours getting everything right for it, and we probably spend more money each year also. But all the effort is worth it, or we wouldn’t bother would we? As Christmas gets bigger, the little things become more and more important and one of those is the presentation of….

    Christmas is the greatest family time there is. Of course we have weekends and other holidays, but nothing quite beats Christmas for taking time off, putting the feet up and spending quality time with our loved ones.
