Personalised Gift Ideas For The One You Love ♥

1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9.

The festive season is quickly approaching and this year I'm loving the personalised gift options which are widely available on various sites on the internet. I think personalised gifts are so much more thoughtful than things which can be bought simply on the high street and personalised gifts tend to be far more special and unique to the receiver - who wouldn't want the one they love to feel special when being given a gift?! I've decided to put together a little gift guide of some of my favourite personalised gift options for other halves which are available at the moment. All of these things are suitable for both men and women and would be amazing gifts for loved ones this Christmas or even as an anniversary or birthday gift.

I am so in love with the idea of this gift, the Name A Star Gift Box. This box allows you to name a star for a special person in your life. I think this is such a sweet gift and something which would be treasured forever, how lovely would it be to know there's a star in the sky named after you? This gift box contains Name a Star introduction letter, personalised registration certificate bearing your star’s new name, star coordinates that help you find your star in the sky, a ‘Stellar Star’ fact sheet, a beginner’s guide to astronomy, a night sky book and a star chart.

I personally don't drink tea but everyone I know does, including my partner who loves his tea so getting a personalised teapot for someone is such a lovely gift. These can be made in male and female designs and can include a name or any other text you like. I love this girly, cupcake design tea pot. I really wish I drank tea, it'd suit me so well. Something that would go very well with this particular gift is the Advent Christmas Tea Gift Set which includes twenty-five beautifully packaged tea teabags which all have a festive theme and a range of flavours. My tea-addict partner would love this!

These Love You Too pillow covers are such a lovely gift for the one you love and would look lovely in the home too. I'd love these on my bed and think they're a really sweet gift. These can be made to say whatever you like but I think this particular design is so sweet.

Personalised photo calenders are another lovely gift and are great for photography addicts like myself. I always use Photobox for creating photo gifts and they have lots of layouts to choose from for their personalised calenders. I'd love to receive a calender filled with memories with my other half from the year before and I think these would be great made with seasonal photos for each month. The possibilities with this gift are endless and a calender is something everyone needs plus they are so simple to make and lovely to look at each day remembering your special memories together.

The Globetrotter Personalised Print is another gift I love and something which I'm thinking of getting for my well-traveled partner. You can add a title and up to twenty-five countries to mark your travels from previous years. I think this would look lovely in my partners office or on display in our living room. The Scratch Off World Map Poster is a similar gift to the print but this is something which the gift recipient can personalise themselves by marking all the places they travels to in their lifetime. You simply scratch off the countries you've visited and this can be displayed straight onto the wall or in a frame.

This Personalised Story Of Us Print is another great gift for the ones you love. I'd like to get this as a wedding gift for my partner when we do eventually get married. This can come framed our unframed and you can add in seventeen chapters of your life with someone, three landmarks and the years that you visited them. This would be such a lovely gift to display in the home.

I love this Family Tree 6 Picture Frame, this is another great gift for those who love photography and like to display their family pictures. This comes with six frames that are attached to the tree with ribbon so they can be removed or added to personalise the tree how you would like. I think this would be so sweet in the living room with a picture of my little family.

If none of the above gifts take your fancy you could always opt for making something for your loved one yourself.  There are so many great DIY products out there and honestly, what better gift is there to give than one crafted with love from your own hands? The great thing about making something yourself is that you can also personalise it however you want for that special someone. I especially love this herb garden box how to, a perfect, unique gift for budding gardeners like my other half.

These are just some of my favourite picks from the wide range of personalised gifts that are available out there. I'd be delighted to receive any of these as a gift from my partner and I know some of these are going to be things which I get for him this Christmas.
Have you any special gift in mind for the one you love this Christmas?

  17. I can't believe that Christmas is so close. My husband and I tell ourselves every year that were going to start our Christmas shopping early (like in September) but we never do. But these gift ideas have gotten the wheels to turning in my head for gift ideas. Great post!

  18. These are all such great gifts. I'm totally partial to the map but when my husband and I were first dating, I 'named a star' after him. I felt really dumb afterwards because I thought I was *really* naming a star after him. :\
