Instead of trying to find a cable to charge your phone after you children and stolen it or you have taken it into the car… you’ve had these days I’m sure, well this is a wooden gift that once set up you will never be without. It stays put on the kitchen worktop or bedside table or is always ready for you to place your mobile phone down onto of it to charge your mobile phone. It is that simple!

MMSS Engraved wooden mobile phone chargers are just fabulous and this is only one of the many personalised gifts ideas you can buy for your man.


If your hubby doesn’t have a QI (wireless) ready phone, don’t worry, there are many different ways to make your phone wirelessly compatible. One is a wireless receiver phone case which you can purchase alongside your wooden charger or a wireless receiver module which you can buy on Amazon or other mobile phone retail stores. They hide under the phone case and work just as well. Perfect!

Personalised 5th wedding anniversary wall plaque:


Without a doubt a gift perfect for your 5th wedding anniversary. It does say it all!

Have everything engraved, from the date and time you got married to the future you will spend together. Personally, I like the line, ‘5 years down – a lifetime left to go’, You really can add as much engraving as you wish. When it comes to engraved wooden plaques, these are something that really stands out from the crowd. Since we started making beautiful personalised wooden gifts back in 2009, carving lettering not wood was the basis of everything we do. Our font and quality of finish are second to none. This engraved oak plaque is something you will want on display in your home love that it is there.


We give you the first 5 lines included in the price, plus the 5 years married, days, hours and minutes, the rest is completely up to you. If you want a 5th wedding gift it says it all!

An all time classic. This, for us, is a really great gift for anyone who enjoys food, being in the kitchen and entertaining. There is nothing like a really good, hard-wearing wooden chopping board to prepare food or use as a serving board when at the table. We have been commissioned to make countless numbers os these for weddings and wedding anniversaries and the comments we get are always positive.


Handmade to such a high standard, no other oak chopping board will do once you have used on our kitchen boards. The timber is the finest Amish grown American Hardwoods that is so subtle in colour, hard in density and pretty in grain structure. You will not be able to put it away.

When it comes to engraving on these beautiful personalised wooden chopping boards, you can have either side edge engraved with words sort lettering. You can then finish it off nicely with a carved heart or star. For longer message or favourite quotes we can engrave the underside of the board for you, allowing you to write something for your 5th wedding anniversary that means something.
