Mother's Day Is Fast Approaching

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and it’s a good time to start thinking how you are going to say thank you to Mum. Rather than just buy something last minute, why not take the time to create a unique personalised gift that Mum will really appreciate. We have selected a couple of ideas to start you thinking:

Photo Frame with your own caption

Personalised Family Canvas

Personalised Tea Set


Photo Gifts:

A photo is a great starting point in creating a number of photo gifts and these have a proven success as presents on Mother’s Day.

A simple and effective idea is to add you own message to a personalised photo frame and put your own printed photo in it. If Mum has the space on a wall, then using your favourite photo of the family in a photo canvas can be a striking centre piece. If you are feeling more adventurous and have more time compile a photo book to remind of special moments and events that will put a smile on Mum’s face. Have a look at the designs we have where you can upload your own photos and captions.



An increasingly popular gift is our range of personalised tea tins and tea sets. These are filled with Taylors of Harrogate English Breakfast Tea and make a colourful gift for tea lover. They have the added bonus that the tins can be kept and refilled.

We have more suggestions in our Mother’s Day Gift section, but please look at the other ideas elsewhere on our site and see what unique gift you can create for Mum.

Personalised Wall Calendar

It could be considered easy to wander off to your local department store and select something from the sock department for the man in your life.

At Make it Personal we prefer to think up unique gift ideas for men that are a little different, made very special because they are not only personalised but you do have to think ahead in order to make your man happy, this is not the type of gift you can just pick up on Christmas Eve. 

We've just had some excellent new ideas come into our store, all of which can be personalised with either a name and message, or name, message and photo.  The choice is yours, these are some of our favourites:

Sterling Silver Personalised Cufflinks

Our sterling silver wave cufflinks can be personalised with two initials and arrive in a presentation gift box.

Hot Chocolate Drinkers Set

Hot Chocolate Drinkers Set - Your gift includes two tins, each of which can be personalised with that chocolate-loving person’s name. One tin contains some free ‘Fair Trade’ Hot Chocolate Sachets, the other with some scrummy biscuits. Yum yum.

Personalised Bottle of Macallan Whiskey

A dream for any lover of malt whiskey, their own beautifully gift boxed bottle of Macallan whiskey with a personalised card.  Be warned, they probably won't want to share......

Countdown to Christmas - Personalised Gifts for Little Girls


Choosing gifts for little girls can be quite hard, as unless you're going to go in for the fluffy bear, dvd or girly game the choice in the shops is endless of things they're really not going to appreciate.

Alphabet Jigsaw

We think that diversion is an excellent idea, so we'd suggest that you consider one of our alphabet jigsaws to start with, not only is it personal to them, with a special message and their name on it, but it'll take them hours to do unless you get roped in (note; the diversion tactic only really works if you can get two or more children to sit somewhere warm and concentrate, but that's up to you, we can only provide the tools).

Fairy Clock

As an alternative we know for a fact that little girls love our fairy clock.  They'll need you to help them learn the time, and to hang it in their room, but hopefully having something as pretty as this given to them (and don't let them drop it, this is made of bone china, will provide enough enjoyment on the day.

Fifi and The Flowertots Personalised Mug

We'd also suggest that you consider our Fifi and the Flowertots personalised mug, there's something about having something with your name on that makes it really special, and we have lots more Fifi and the Flowertots gifts and ideas to show you, all of which can be personalised with name only, or with name and a photo.

Pink Charm Bracelet

And finally what girl wouldn't like to be given our sweet pink charm bracelet with its personalsed heart?  We know we would.  Don't expect to hang on to it for long if you're given this and you have a little girl in the house.  We know these things.

We also know that not every little girl likes pink, which is why all of our gifts, from jigsaws to clocks to jewellery, come in different designs and coourways.

All of our personalised gifts are made totally unique by the addition of engraving, or addition of a name and/or photo.  This of course, despite the cleverness of our personalisation software, takes a little time, so please note that our last order date for Christmas is December 10th.

Calling all Doctor Who Addicts with our Fantasy Wallpaper

Doctor Who Wallpaper

For any kid that loves Doctor Who, our Doctor Who wallpaper is the best present ever.  A little bit of extra work over Christmas perhaps, and unfortunately something that it would be impossible to put up overnight while your child is sleeping. We suggest you send the child you're going to give this to off on a sleepover with a friend, and give them a wonderful surprise when they come back to a room filled with Daleks, the Tardis and all the magic that surrounds it.

Doctor Who has been around and loved for a very long time and will carry on being a kids' favourite we know.  Our Doctor Who wallpaper comes in four different designs, one with the Doctor and Amy flying through the air, one with them fending off the Daleks, another (our favourite) the one we've shown here, and the fourth which we know kids will love, the inside of the Tardis itself.

You may not know that Doctor Who was first aired by the BBC in 1963 and is in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest running science fiction show in the world, so there's definitely more than one generation that'll get huge pleasure out of our wallpaper.

Give your kid a room full of magic this Christmas and create a science fiction fantasy in their room with our Doctor Who Wallpaper.

Occasions when a Personalised Gift is the Perfect Gift to Give


Taittinger Champagne Gift

When should you give a personalised gift?  There are occasions when giving something personalised makes your gift extra-special, and times when it doesn't make so much difference.

Personalised Jigsaw Puzzle

For young kids, for example, a personalised mug or jigsaw puzzle will give great pleasure and give a sense of ownership, the occasion doesn't matter so much, it's about your having chosen something with their name on and when it comes down to football gifts, of course, the occasion again isn't so important, it's a memento of their favourite club (mums take note, this applies to older kids as well, up to a certain age, and only you can judge what that is).

Football Gift

Personalised Gifts make perfect gifts in particular for special birthdays, such as 18th and 21st birthdays, anniversary and wedding gifts and any occasion which needs to be specially marked.  Personalised champagne goes down well for most occasions - who doesn't love champagne.

Be careful when selecting your personalised gift to ensure that it's right for the person and for the occasion, a gift should never be just a 'gift', chosen in a hurry because you think it fills a need.  What you're looking for is that happy face when your gift is opened, and to know that it will be enjoyed and used. 

We've put together a collection of personalised gifts with something for everyone, choose the right one and it'll be treasured for a long time, other than the champagne of course, which personalised or otherwise will almost certainly be opened within a very short space of time.  But very much appreciated.
