Personalised Wooden Gifts MakeMeSomethingSpecial.com

Nestled deep within the Surrey Hills, a family business thrives on creating something special for each and every customer. You will not find mass-produced factory made products here. We are proud to be one of the few remaining companies that values craftsmanship and attention to detail above everything else.

Make Me Something Special was founded by Ben & Davina in 2007. What began as a solely professional wooden chopping board manufacturer, quickly became a bespoke personalised wooden gift maker with the ability for customers to personalise and customise any product to their wishes.

Because of the excellence in quality, customers would come to us and request new and unique ideas for us to produce. In 2012 we had around 10 standard products – today we have well over 200 products with many different and unique ways to personalise and create something very beautiful and personal.

“The best thing about MakeMeSomethingSpecial, for us, is being asked to create something that the customer doesn’t even believe is possible”


Make Me Something Special, in its first few years as a company, have supplied a vast range of clients, private individuals, schools and universities, councils, famous hotels, large corporate companies, top restaurants, wine bars and bistros, celebrities and The Royal Family.

We have created over 1,000,000 bespoke personalised wooden gifts, including personalised wooden chopping boards which have been tried, tested and owned by professional chefs around the world.
