This is one of our bespoke personalised tea light candle holders but engraved with Hebrew. A customer need it as a gift for her boss and wanted it very urgently. We are used to this kind of demand at Make Me Something Special and if possible always prepared to go that extra mile to make sure it happens.

I have to say – this wooden tea light holders engraved lettering came out very well as we were able to carve the inscription really deep due to the style of the lettering. It really did have a first class look even though we have never done anything quite like it before. A fabulous job all round!

MMSS Policy: Even if we are on tight deadline – we will always take extreme care when making any bespoke or standard product order.

We did as promised deliver the finished article in time and finished with our usual glass tea light inserts. (not shown in the image)

Our Customer review:

Wood You believe it?
Yes we wood!

Ben & Davina,

Thank you so much for creating the most truly stunning birthday present, the tealight holder with Happy Birthday in Hebrew!
It shocked, amazed, delighted, and was adored by everyone who saw it last night!

It had been an absolute pleasure buying from you, you never once made me feel anything other than special in my request for something out of the ordinary.

From the moment I rang and asked if it would be possible you went out of your way to make it happen, a very special service not afforded many customers nowadays.

I cannot wait until I buy more presents and give them to family and friends whom will be as equally delighted as my friend was last night when she opened her present!

Thanks again

Kind regards

Kathy Gallagher

Dear Davina

Just a quick note to thank you very much for the order at the above reference.

It arrived safely (and very securely) yesterday and I’ve just had the opportunity to have a look at it a moment ago and I simply couldn’t be happier. The craftsmanship is second to none and my wife will absolutely love it as a gift for our fifth wedding anniversary on the 23rd.

I very much appreciated you being able to amend my order at the last minute and I’m very glad I opted to increase the size from three to five lights – it’ll look far more symmetrical on the unit I’ve earmarked to keep it on for the next ‘x’ number of years.

Many, many thanks again and have a good weekend.

Kind regards


Heather – October 15, 2014:

Check out our beautiful Oak and Walnut Tea Light holders. Here at Make Me Something Special, you don’t just have oak as a timber to chose from when buying a personalised tea light holder.

oak and walnut tea light holders

This is our oak night light holder. Handmade from stunning English Oak, to order, in our Surrey Hills workshop.

The best thing about these wooden tea light candle holders is… well several things really.

Firstly – the oak we use…

Take a close look. Our oak is all hand selected by to ensure the finest quality. We source every piece from our local saw mill, which all timber is sustainable managed and certificated.

When choosing a tea light candle holder as a gift for a wedding or an anniversary or birthday for a friend or loved one, you are probably looking for quality – and we do nothing but high quality luxury wooden gifts.

Secondly… the timber choice…

I have talked about our oak – well – this is our Amish American Black walnut. A very beautiful and sought after timber for fine furniture making.

Walnut of this calibre is something not generally used for simple wooden gift making because of its expensive price tag but we are lucky enough to have good trade with an Amish saw mill who supplies us all year round with this lovely timber.

We originally only made our personalised wooden chopping boards with this stunning timber but due to the demand solid walnut found its way onto the tea light holder production line. Fabulous!

Next the size…

You can one night light…or as many as you like!

We do these in rounds, squares and also heart shaped tea light holders…

All the way up to 10 tea lights as standard.

more if you want. Our record was 20 tea lights for a grand table centre piece. Make Me Something Special’s oak and walnut tea light holders are simply stunning!

We make the best oak tea light candle holders on the market.

Oak Tea Light Candle Holders from MakeMeSomethingSpecial.comHandmade from English Oak our bespoke tea light candle holders can be bought by the tea light. We make one – up to 12 tea lights as standard but we can always change, adapt and add more tea lights if you would like something custom made to your own requirements.

Oak Tea Light Candle Holders from MakeMeSomethingSpecial.comAll of our engraved candle holders come with glass tea light inserts to catch stray wax and keep the oak as clean as possible. Choose to have personalised text engraved over two sides of your oak tea light holder to make it unique and a very beautiful personalised gift for friends and family.

We were asked to make a personalised oak tea light holder very recently with engraved lettering.

“Not a problem,” we said.

It had to say Happy Birthday but…… not in english – in Hebrew.

Oak Tea Light Holder from

Of course, these things are not always easy but it defiantly makes it more exciting!

This beautifully hand carved oak tea light holder (I know, it is missing the glass inserts – to eager to take a photo of it) is seven tea lights long. Handmade from scratch using true English Oak and hand finished until perfect.

I have to say the caved personalised lettering does look fabulous!

Oak Tea Light Holder from

I love saying yes to customers, because it seems they come to us expecting us to laugh or say no – sorry we can’t do that.

It is the way with most companies – we get it all the time. You see a product – you like the look of it but if it could be slightly altered it would work better for you. Even something as simple as a wooden tea light candle holder.

That is what make us unique because that is what our customers want.

We are Make Me Something Special – that is what it says on the tin and that is exactly what we do – and we love it!

Have a read of what this particular customer said about us and her beautiful bespoke wooden product on our Facebook page.

An absolutely amazing find!

The most perfect gifts, the best quality timbers, the best care and attention to detail!

Ben & Davina are very rare I think, from the moment I rang, Ben was helpful, knowledgable and absolutely determined to create exactly what I wanted. A Tealight Holder with Happy Birthday inscribed in Hebrew, a few emails later , it was done, they even made sure it was made and delivered within a few days, in time for a birthday!

You can just tell that this is their passion, and they have for me created something very precious – special memories- which cannot be bought, all aided by the Bespoke, amazing and irreplaceable present. It made my evening something very special, to see the smiles on everyone’s faces as it was carefully unwrapped!

Thank you so much.

Kathy Gallagher
