Getting to 'Home' You - Interior Personalised Gifts

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

These summer months are busy for me with regards to birthdays and other events.  I've been on the hunt for presents which for some people has not been easy.  I want my gifts to be personal, thoughtful and stylish, and have been attracted to personalised gifts.  There is nothing new in personalised gifts, I mean we have been giving each other mugs with our names on for years.  But personalised gifts these days are fantastic and they can also be quirky as well as being a wonderful addition to their home. The Power of One Sometimes you don't need a word to make a gift personal, you can do it easily with just a letter.  Initials for the personal, a member of their family, their favourite thing, you know them what initial would best evoke an emotion? Even though we are in the digital age we still love our books, what a better way to show them off than these British Yorkstone engraved initial bookends.
