This is going to be a busy (and expensive!) year of gift-giving for me.
It’s the year most of my friends and I will be turning 21(eeek!), my Mum will be turning 50 (sorry Mum! Ha) and various other family and friend's will be celebrating some sort of milestone. Safe to say my diary is pretty full.
I personally think that for a truly special gift, nothing beats a present that has been personalised. My best friend gave me a silver bracelet with a heart charm for my 18th birthday with a lovely message engraved onto it, and I wear it every single day – you may have seen me wearing it on my blog. I love it because it’s special, unique, and the personalised message makes it the only one in the world like it.
Now it may be a tad late to be buying a Valentine’s gift, but I just had to share this with you! Obviously these gifts can be given any time of year for any occasion, but what a cute present for your Valentine.
Now, feast your eyes on these…
Aren't they just SO adorable? This cute clutch bag from Thomas Lyte comes in a range of colours, and can have any name/message/initials embossed on the front - personal, pretty AND practical. And all for just £80 including the personal message! A beautiful, real leather, personalised clutch for £80… I think that’s a steal.
And if you are purchasing for a male…Every man needs a plain black leather wallet. This one is rather marvellous: eight slots for cards as well as a metal clip to hold notes, and of course, can be personalised - I think it would look great with their initials embossed in the corner...subtle but special.
I am so happy I stumbled across this website. There are hundreds of websites out there where you can buy personalised gifts, but these leather goods are so much more chic and unusual compared to your average personalised mug/key ring/bottle of wine/tea towel/notebook etc.
Embossing/engraving on leather or silver goods starts at £15 for 5-7 letter.
