GET PERSONAL

Is it just me that’s a sucker for a personalised gift? Whether it’s a wedding, friends birthday or just a little something to say thanks, personalised presents are a lovely way of showing you care.  I’ve spotted some great gift ideas recently to share just in time for all those summer parties!

WAX SEAL STAMP

There’s something so special about a handwritten note in our world of instant interaction.  This special gift from StompStamps would be perfect for the letter-writer in your life. Love notes anyone?

HOUSE ILLUSTRATION

Send a photo of your home (wedding venue, or even favourite pub!) and the clever folk at Letterfest will turn it into a rather lovely handsketched and framed illustration.  Such a lovely gift for a new home owner or newlyweds!

ALPHABET CHARM

Personalised jewellery never goes out of fashion, and Monica Vinader’s simple designs are a fave for their contemporary and classic style.  For any lady in your life this rose gold initial charm is, well, simply charming!

TRAVEL JOURNAL

Perfect for the adventurer or a lovely honeymoon gift, these personalised journals from Oliver Bonas come boxed and ready to wrap.

ILLLUMINATED CANVAS

For someone celebrating a milestone birthday or anniversary this print from Illuminated Canvas makes a quirky gift.

SCENTED CANDLE

The team at Oliver Bonas always get gifts just right, and I love their new range of personalised scented candles.  These would be lovely bridesmaid gifts, just pick your scent and add your own message.

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
