7 Inspirational Gift Ideas You’re Going to Love!

General | 8th May

Need inspiration? It can be difficult to find the perfect gift. Before Make Me Something Special was born, I knew exactly what it was like… especially for a 5th wedding anniversary. Wood isn’t the first thing you might think of when you want something luxurious, but you would be surprised! A gift that is handmade in UK by skilled hands can tern heads, especially when made form beautiful timber and finished to a extraordinary high standard. After all, if it for that someone special in your life, it needs to be good!

So where can I buy luxurious quality wooden gifts made from wood that’s really special? Glad you asked. Welcome to Make Me Something Special. Here you will find nothing but unique and beautiful personalised wooden gift ideas for all occasions; not just 5th wedding anniversaries. Everything is handmade, from scratch, to order in our Surrey Hills workshop using the finest materials we can get our hands on – It is all about the quality.

We have the most attractive personalised wooden tea light candle holders and handmade engraved wooden chopping boards to be personalised with your choice of words or lettering. Wooden magnetic knife racks for the kitchen to display your favourite Japanese knives. Oak salt and pepper pinch bowls, for seasoning food whist cooking or at the table. Personalised wooden wall plaques with any amount of engraving you need, for a simple few words like ‘LIVE LOVE LAUGH’ or your favourite song lyrics or poem.

We love everything we make and the quality of the finish is clear to see.
