It’s amazing how many personalised gifts are available to buy these days. Some of which I didn’t even know could be until recently. You see, I am currently on the hunt for all sorts of gifts from birthday (various), Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and first baby gifts etc. On my adventure around the internet, I discovered some lovely gifts that can be given the personal touch to make them that bit more special. I thought I would share this with you as I know we all get stuck sometimes when buying gifts so this might help inspire and help with gift choices.
Gifts That Can Be Personalised
I had to put this first as I have numerous people that I buy chocolate for each year as they love it. I know Easter is coming up and know Thorntons do personalised Easter Eggs but I thought that was as far as it went with their personalisation. Boy, was I wrong! I looked on the Thorntons site for gift inspiration and found that they also personalise boxes of chocolates, truffles, chocolate models and more!!! I’m quite liking the thought of a personalised hamper that sounds great.
There is no mistaking whose bottle of wine/brandy/champagne it is when you have your name and photo plastered on the front of it. Regular readers may recall my dad enjoys drinking both wine and gin. Apparently personalising a bottle is as easy as 1,2,3 on the Prestige Drinks website. The range of drinks is pretty varied too which is great and means you can match every drinker you know to at least a handful of bottles each.
I didn’t know these existed before writing this!!! What a lovely idea. Perfume bottles can be so pretty and what better than one with your name on it. I have a friend that loves Kenzo and so I plan to see if I can find this on the list of 350 personalisable bottles available on The Perfume Shop Website. Let’s hope it’s there as then that’s another birthday gift covered.
Relaxation Gift Box
Another wonderful discovery was a relaxation gift box from Banks-Lyon. It’s nice to treat someone to a little pampering. The etched wooden box includes a face mask, candle and mineral bath infusion and makes a lovely keepsake. This box can be tailored to preferences and a personal message added.
One for the hubby here. Mine is totally obsessed with Yankee Candles and quite rightly so. His favourites are the large Eucalyptus and the Lavender jars and he burns them every day when he has a bath. They’re really lovely and the scent fills the hallway to the bathroom which is nice. I think he’d love it if I personalised a candle as a gift for him and the good thing is I don’t have to wait to do it for his birthday, Christmas or Father’s Day. The question is do I use a picture of him or the children or one of each!
