There is real magic in receiving a personalised gift from a loved one. When it comes to gift buying I always like to find a gift that is a little different, one which reflects the persons character or interests. There are plenty of options on the high street, however, it is the smaller businesses which have these more unusual and interesting pieces. A personalised gift might be smaller and more at the lower end of your budget. However, it can also be a gift which is designed and handmade to last and over the years it will have a story to tell.
Here are my reasons for buying a personalised gift for family, friends and work colleagues whether to mark a specific celebration or special occasion.
Top 5 magic reasons
- A personalised gift is unique, no one else will have bought the same gift
- Bespoke gifts are often highly valued and treasured forever.
- Supporting small local makers.
- See the special reaction you will receive.
- It shows the gift receiver you have put thought and care into your choice of gift and will mean so much more to the recipient.
Personalised gifts are suitable for everyone!, including gifts for babies, gifts for her and gifts for him. A gift that features something meaningful such as their name, date of birth, wedding date, or favourite quote makes it unique to the person who is receiving it and no one else will have bought the same gift.
Although, I have received on one occasion two separate Bread board orders whilst completing the drawing for the personalisation it became obvious that it was for the same couple to celebrate their wedding. Calling the second customer to check and discuss this situation meant the happy couple did receive only one bread board.
Here at Childs & Co we have created a range of personalised products for you. The range includes the traditional designs of our Bread boards and Children’s Stool. We also have our more contemporary designed Scandinavian style toy box and bike storage wall hanger
These pieces can all be personalised with engraving to include your special phrase, date and name.
This makes a perfect gift for weddings and special birthdays.
Personalised children’s stool
Children’s stools with personalised engraving are ideal for God Parents and for those looking for a beautiful thoughtful gift for a christening or first Birthday.
Gifts like these are ideal for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, christenings or other special occasions as they will be treasured forever, and be passed down through generations.
We are also able to offer customised versions of our products. One recent examples is our oak outline shelves which has an outline of the Etape Du Tour cycle race the recipient was involved in taking part.
Supporting small local business
Each personalised gift is made especially for you in our workshop which is situated on the edge of the beautiful English Lake District. It is always a good idea to order personalised gifts within plenty of time of the date required as they take a little more time to make and add those personal details to. Although, on occasions you may have left it a little late, please do get in touch as we do like to be able to get the right gift made for you.
Whether you are looking for gifts for him or gifts for her, a personalised present will make the perfect choice every time.
The magic of receiving a gift that has been specifically designed and made for your special person is something they will love and treasure for years to come.
