Well now, there's a way to have your close ones nearby at all times (in one way at least) - a cardboard cutout.
Website Cut Out Me offer life-size cardboard cut-out of your loved ones and they are IDEAL if you're really missing someone.
The cut-out company offers a single person figure for £49.97 with £9.97. Ideal for Christmas Day if a certain family member can't make it or is working.
If you're feeling really extra, you could even order one of yourself and offer it to relatives who might be missing your presence.
If there's a pair of people you're missing, you can also nab a double cut-out for £74.97. Or perhaps it's a niece or nephew? They also do children's cut-outs for between £19.97 and £29.97 depending on height.
There's also options for pet-owners who want to be with their furry friend, from big pets, to small pets and micro pets. They're also good for friends who are obsessed with a certain celebrity. Life-sized Ton Hardy, anyone?
And making them is simple, just upload your photo, enter the height of your loved one (making sure to consider a few inches for hair and camera angle) and click order.
Ok we NEED one of these, even just to have in our bedroom.
If you want to keep your BFF close in a more subtle way, then why not consider getting their face on a pillow?
Imaginative-gifting giant, Firebox has created a personalised travel pillow that you can customise with any face you want, from your pet to your partner and your best friend.
Whether you're 30,000 feet up in the air or rolling down the road on the bus, it works like a traditional travel pillow: super cosy and can prevent any pains in your neck (but maybe not that guy whose playing his music out loud on the train as you make your way home for Christmas).
Travel Musion - Personalised Travel Cushion is available exclusively at Firebox.com for £19.99.
