I can’t believe how long ago our wedding seems already! Although it’s sad that it’s all over, I’m enjoying relaxing a little now we are married. The lead up to our big day was fairly stressful – a combination of issues with our wedding planning company and getting married in a country I’d never been to meant that I was constantly worried what could go wrong or that I might forget something.
When it came to buying gifts for our bridal party, I was stuck on what to get for my dad and for my sister in law, who was my maid of honour. I knew I didn’t want anything too big and bulky as we were flying the gifts out with us, but I still wanted them to be meaningful and something they would want to keep. Fortunately, Hannah from Personalised Gifts Shop came to my rescue and offered me a gift for each of them from their website.
Personalised Gifts Shop have a huge range of items that, as you may have guessed, can be personalised to make them even more special for the recipient. Their wedding section is a treasure trove filled with a mix of the more traditional presents – picture frames, notebooks, bags, hip flasks and mugs as well as some beautiful unique options. I adore their range of glasses, especially the quirky lightbulbs!
After searching the site for the best part of an hour (they have a seriously extensive collection), I finally decided on a stunning purple charm bracelet for my sister in law and a money clip for my dad. They were both fairly small for easy transportation but were still lovely presents.
The personalisation process was really simple, with a clear indication of how many characters you have for each line, and I loved that I could add this to their gifts at no extra cost. Both gifts came in lovely black boxes, protected in bubble wrap, which made transporting them to Santorini on the plane nice and simple.
I gave my sister in law her present whilst we were getting ready and she absolutely loved it. The charms are really beautiful and the quality of the bracelet is amazing for something so reasonably priced (£24.99).
My dad was pleased with his money clip as well, which I gave to him on the car journey over to the wedding ceremony. He used it the next day when we went up onto the cliffside for some cocktails and lunch.
I was really impressed with the collection on Personalised Gifts Shop and it will definitely be my first stop for a present next time we are invited to a wedding!
I was provided with the two gifts for the purpose of this review, however all opinions and photos are my own.
