I love gifts that are personalised. I think something with initials or a name on shows you have thought about the gift and the recipient. One, because its personal (of course) but two, because you must of been so organised to have ordered it in good time to get it done (very thoughtful.)
That’s why I’m hooked on My 1st Years – a fabulous site full of unique gifts for little ones and most with the added touch of personalisation. It makes something that could have been quite a ordinary idea into a truly special gift. You may have noticed me mention them before – as they are the brand that sold a personalised jumper very similar to one a certain little Prince had worn.
My 1st Years admitted to selling over 1,000 of these copycat jumpers in the 4 days that followed Prince George photograph being published in his ‘name’ jumper.
So, when My 1st Years gave Miss M and I a chance to chose a piece from the site – we (OK, I ) was a little excited. So, we set to work and starting shopping!
I finally decided on this gorgeous towelling robe with a gingham trim The 100% cotton robe is just the thing to pop on Miss M after she gets out of the bath – as she hates her hooded towels at the mo. She can slip it on and totter off – and dry-off at the same time.
I also love the fact that the belt is attached to the robe so she can’t pull it off. And, the best bit the personalisation is done free.
Yes, FREE OF CHARGE.
So, the price you see is the price you pay – and what’s more you can choose from four font styles, a selection of colours and have upto 16 letters.
I think this is fantastic – as so many times I find a great gift and then you add personalisation and the bill racks up. It’s makes something that should of been a reasonable gift a bit of an indulgence.
This is especially true of silver items. I can’t tell you how much I have paid to get money boxes and the like engraved for Christening gifts (often costs more than the gift itself.)
And, the icing on the cake? Your item arrives in a luxury blue gift box finished with a white ribbon (and, those who know me know I love a bit of gift wrapping) and within 5 days of ordering* – making it a truly special gift to give and receive.
Here’s 5 of my favourite personalised gifts from My 1st Years:
