I seem to be on a roll with posts about gift ideas lately. And like the savvy blogger I am, I'm tying it all in neatly with... erm, nothing. It's not Christmas, Mother's Day, Father's Day or even bloody Pancake Day. But it's bound to be somebody's birthday at some point soon, right?!
Today's offerings come from I Just Love It, a website which specialises in personalised gifts. From engravings on jewellery to monogrammed beach towels, I think we all love to receive a gift that's personal to us. I know I do! I Just Love It is packed full of ideas - tableware, stationery, wall art, even chocolates and champagne - all of which can be tailor made to mean that extra something special to the recipient. Very kindly, they offered to send me a couple of examples of the type of gifts they offer. And that's when I came over all romantic.
For my first gift, I chose a personalised heart map. I think these look so cute, and the idea behind them is really lovely. Pick an address that means something to you, and they will supply you with a detailed map of the surrounding area, all beautifully presented within a frame of your choice. I would have liked to pick the spot where my husband proposed to me - told you I was feeling romantic - but as that happened to be in Belgium I had to go for something else, as the choice of address was limited to within the UK. So I picked the location of the first home we've owned together, and it looks really lovely hanging on the wall.
For my second gift, I decided to get a little present for Mike. I've seen a few monogrammed mugs around recently and I really like them - in fact, I want one for myself! I Just Love It's monogrammed mugs are good quality and come in four different colour options (all against a white background). You can also add a short message on the back. I chose instructions as to how Mike likes his tea - just in case either of us forgets!
I'm really impressed with the quality of both items, and would definitely check out I Just Love It again should I be on the lookout for more personalised gifts in the future.
Are you a fan of personalised gifts? And would you go for either of these?
