As soon as Halloween is over it seems everywhere you look is festive and getting ready for Christmas. While I’m not usually so early to get prepared (rarely before November!) this year I have been getting a few things ready and it’s always the gifts with the personal touch that catch my eye as they offer something so unique and special. Personalised gifts for the home are always a winner of a gift and I have two lovely ideas to share with you today.
I always find little gifts which have personal touches for my girls and it makes it so worthwhile when I see the delight on their faces on the big day, the prints from Olivean Designs are perfect and even though my girls are different ages (10 and 17) they are ideal. The personalised family tree from Cornish Whispers is so different and unique I was thrilled when I opened it up as it is so intricate in it’s design and the aged wooden finish really makes it stand out.
Gift Ideas From Olivean Designs
There are some beautiful personalised prints on the Etsy page of Olivean Designs and the beauty is you can have them posted to you or emailed so you can print them out yourself. I bought two striking, simple, lovely prints for each of my girls with their name and birth details for £6.00 (plus P&P) each so all I need to do now is find some pretty frames and wrap them for Christmas. The lovely team from Olivean Designs were so helpful and any additional tweaks that you need to add they are more than happy to accommodate. They were really fast at shipping once I had chosen the designs and I love the finished prints as they stand out and would look good in any bedroom no matter what age. If you look at the photo’s I have added you can see the colours I chose for my girls, but there are other colours to choose from and you can add or remove any details as you wish on the Etsy page to your liking and even the initials look lovely and even better once they are framed.
Gift Ideas From Cornish Whispers
Next is something really unique from Cornish Whispers and something for the whole family, it’s a perfect gift idea if you are looking for a home style gift and if you have a big family a great gift solution for couples or families. You can have up to 6 names on the wooden family tree from Cornish Whispers as well as the family name at the base of the tree. You can of course adapt the personalised tree as you want and have your own message in place of the family name, perhaps ‘grandchildren’ ‘children’ or even ‘pets’. The Cornish Whispers team were very helpful and once I had ordered the wooden family tree the piece was hand crafted, waxed and a rustic piece of string added so I could hang it as soon as it came in the post. Priced at £25.00 (plus P&P) it offers great value for money and such a special gift idea for Christmas. With four different finishes of wood and such a beautiful finish it is a really special piece to gift with such an intricate finish and pretty typography.
With so much choice in the marketplace for personalised gifts it is so refreshing to find two family run businesses that offer such great quality items. Now I have started my Christmas shopping I feel much more organised, these three gorgeous gifts will most definitely bring lots of smiles on the big day.
