Gift Guide: The Art Of Personalisation

We're always looking for a gift that will make their face light up when they pull back the wrapping paper and discover a truly personal present beneath. The art of gifting seems more important than ever this year, with the perfect gift making a big difference. After you've chosen something suited just to them, from refined diaries for busy friends to classic passport holders for frequent flyers, add a finishing flourish with personalisation. Their initials, name or even a short message in luxurious gold-tone embossing or fine engraved letters will elevate your gift into something unique that they'll treasure for years to come. Discover our edit of the perfect personalised gift ideas.

For the Friend Who Has Everything

If you're looking for something unusual to surprise that friend or family member who seems to have everything already, try a practical personalised gift that they can use daily. Tech lovers will appreciate a hand-bound leather phone case complete with their initials, whilst our refined purses and timeless wallets, hand-crafted from Italian leather, can also be personalised with embossing to create a sophisticated gift your loved one will reach for every day.

For the Gentleman With Impeccable Taste

Adding his initials or even a small message to a classic accessory will show him how much care went into choosing just the right thing. You may decide to add his initials to a keyring to create a gift he can take with him everywhere. If you're looking for something luxurious and even a little indulgent, consider adding a small message to a heritage-inspired hip flask. For the man who enjoys the finer things, choose a personalised box for cufflinks or watches to keep his accessories neatly tucked away, with a cushioned suede lining to keep the contents protected, as well as solid brass fastenings and hinges to last a lifetime.

For the Lady Who Deserves Something Special

Choose a gift that will make her think of you every time she uses it. A new handbag with her initials embossed on the side makes a sophisticated but subtle addition to her wardrobe. Discover a range of styles, from chic modern designs for the office to bags in vivid colours that are a statement on weekends. A carefully chosen piece of jewellery is a gift that will last forever, add an inscription to a bracelet or cuff that she will read each time she puts it on. Alternatively, choose a hand-crafted jewellery box with a gold-tone key and compartments for keeping her accessories organised - add her name so she can proudly display it on her dressing table.

For Making Memories

As well as making your gift unique at Christmas, you can personalise a present to mark a special occasion like a wedding, birthday or anniversary. Include a thoughtful message or a special date on your gift so they'll always be reminded of a happy time. Our silver gifts such as sleek pens and shining cufflinks can be engraved to reflect your chosen message, name or initials. If you have photographs of a special time together, then personalise a leather-bound photo album with the date of a christening or wedding to create a gift they'll cherish.

Personalising a present can elevate it to an heirloom that can be kept for years or even generations to come. Add a little one's name to a baby memories book so that they can look back on it as an adult, or choose a timeless handbag and customise with a family surname so that it can be passed on. Personalised gifts come with a meaning behind them, so you're not just giving a present - you're giving a memory.
