This is Davina, my wife, business partner and co-founder of Make Me Something Special.

Being the general blog writer for MMSS, and also being in the videos on the Make Me Something Special website, everyone has seen me and knows my thoughts, likes and which products are my favourite. However, this blog is about Davina, who since before we started the company, has thought up most of the products we make.

Here is an insight into some of her favourite Make Me Something Special wooden gifts.

Its really hard to choose, but here are 6 of my favourite personalised wooden gifts that we currently make.

1)Personalised Oak Toy Boxes

We were commissioned to make a Personalised Wooden Toy Box for Prince Georges’ first Christmas. I love its simple, vintage design and the large carved names and drawings. “Fit for a Prince” 

2) Personalised Wall Plaques

Our Wooden Wall Plaques make the perfect present for that ‘Someone Special’. You can engrave anything from the co-ordinates of your wedding day venue to the lyrics of your special song, even your wedding vows. To have something so special engraved forever is truly special!

3)Salt and Pepper Bowl

Our Wooden Salt & Pepper Pinch Bowls are so practical and stylish at the same time. Its similar to the one we designed and make for Emma Bridgewaters’ New Wooden Gift range. They have become so popular since James Martins recent television programme.

4) Personalised Tea Light Holders

I simply adore our Engraved Wooden Tea Light Holders. You can have have them in any length and personalised. I love using them as my table centrepiece. They look so elegant twinkling away. 

5) Personalised carving boards

I could not be without my Oak Carving Board. In our family we have a Sunday Roast every week and to display the entire roast dinner on the Carving Board and presenting it to the table makes it feel much more worthwhile, and there’s less washing up to do!

6) Wooden Swings

I have to say that our wooden garden swings are not only one of my favourite products, its everyone in my family too. Every time i go on it, i’m transported back to my childhood when i was barefoot and carefree! I love that our personalised oak swing, can be used and enjoyed by everyone in the family!
