When I am buying gifts for people I like to buy them something a little bit different, something that they will remember and something that hopefully wont be duplicated and shoved in a draw for all eternity. So when possible I like to choose personalised gifts, items that can be engraved or adapted in someway to incorporate the receivers personality or an aspect of who they are and what they like. When I think about the gifts that I have received over the years most of my favourite pieces are those that have been personalised. It’s always nice to receive gifts but it’s that much nicer when you know the buyer put in some thought and effort, I think it shows they care. So, if like me you are always looking for some personalised gifts to buy your nearest and dearest then here are some personalised gift ideas I have put together.
A Personalised Mug
Who doesn’t love a cup of something? For me it has to be coffee in the morning and green tea throughout the day but whatever your loved ones favourite drink is why not personalise a bone china mug for them. Great to keep at the office to remind everyone what you drink when it’s their turn to pop the kettle on. With loads of designs to choose from you will find a personalised mug for everyone and every occasion. These are from Mclaggan and prices start from £9.50 and the quality is amazing.
A Personalised Photo Frame
One of my favourite wedding presents was an engraved photo frame with our wedding date on it. Ten years later and the frame is still pride of place in our lounge, making me smile and reminisce about our wedding day every time I see it. Not only does it look beautiful, it acts a reminder to the husband so he has no excuse for forgetting our anniversary!
This rose gold photo frame can be engraved with any message and would be the perfect personalised gift idea for grandparents or god parents to celebrate a 1st Christmas. You can order this from Find Me a Gift for £13.99.
If you are looking for personalised gift ideas for the over 18 why not order this message on a prosecco bottle. You can tell them you love them and list 10 reasons why. These messages create the label for everyone to see and you can be as creative or as serious as you like. Perhaps you want to tell your husband that you love that he puts the bins out or your dad that he does the ironing. Whatever it is you can say it with prosecco.
I think this would make a great 18th birthday present, their first legal bottle that they can keep for every. Or even the perfect gift for the teacher at the end of the year with 10 things the child loved about being in their class. You can order these from Find me a Gift for £22.25.
Personalised Luggage tags
If you are looking for a personalised gift that is a little more unusual but shows you know the recipient well then how about these embossed Jack Russell luggage tags. They are made from smooth leather and cost £30 and can be personalised with a name across the bottom, perfect for those that love to travel or travel for work on a regular basis. It is a gift they can use all year round and with a variety of colours to choose from there is a luggage tag for everyone.
