Personalised gifts for Valentine's Day

There is something extra special about personalised gifts don't you think? Receiving a locket as a present is lovely, but receiving a locket that has a personalised message engraved on the back is even better. It's that personal touch that makes it so much more special and you know the person who bought the gift was really thinking about you.

Discussing Valentine's Day with the teen

With Valentine's Day just around the corner I was talking to BP about whether he'd be buying anything for anyone this year. Last year he had a girlfriend and got her something for Valentine's Day but this year he doesn't have a girlfriend so I wasn't sure if he still wanted to buy anything.

As a mum I want to teach him to care about this day if he has someone special in his life. However, being a quiet boy who doesn't like to talk to me I had to bring up the subject. It was a difficult conversation but we did finally get something out of him - he wanted to get something for someone. Only he didn't want to tell me who. 

Among my stillness was a pounding heart.

This is where we came to a hitch, I'd been asked by Personally Presented to review something for their site and I thought this would be a good opportunity for BP to choose something special. On the Personally Presented website there are lots of personalised gifts - gifts where you can have special messages on them or engraved into them - but if he wanted something like that I would have to know who he was sending the gifts to. He didn't like that very much, he got all embarrassed and tried to hide when I saw the name of the person he was buying something for. 

I didn't say anything to him because I felt he was entitled to his privacy and I don't need to get involved unless he wants me to. 

Personalised gifts

So after searching the site for a while BP settled on a couple of gifts to send to his Valentine. The first was a cute make-up brush holder, personalised with the name of the girl. Perfect for a teenage girl I thought. 

The make-up brush holder is solid ceramic with a gloss finish and has the words "Just a girl who loves makeup" printed on the front. It's sturdy so won't fall over like some of its plastic counterparts and I'm sure it will look lovely on the girl's dressing table or bedside table. The make-up brush holder costs £14.99.

A teddy bear sticks out of the top of a tin with the words "twinkle twinkle little star, do you know how loved you are" written in gold on the front. Next to the tin is a ceramic make up brush holder with the words "just a girl who loves make up" on the front in black. There's a pink marble effect background.

I really love the other gift he chose because it's just so cute - a teddy bear in a tin. But it's not just any tin, there's a message on the front and you can add another personalised message on the back. The message on the front reads "Twinkle twinkle little star, do you know how loved you are?" and then the girl's name at the bottom, there's a message on the back too - that BP wrote - but I'll let him keep that bit a secret. You can write anything on the back, there's space for 4 lines of 20 characters so you can get creative.

The teddy bear is soft and cuddly and fits snuggly into the tin. If you decided to take the bear out of the tin, the tin could be used for storage for something else - keepsakes perhaps? The bear in a tin costs £19.99.

There are some lovely gifts at Personally Presented, and they're not just cute ones that teens will like. I particularly like their Valentine's Gifts for Him section - there's lots of unique personalised gifts, an engraved pocket watch for example. There are certainly things on the site that I would probably buy but that I would never think of myself.

Love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own.
