    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

    Thank you ever so much for your help. We are a group of NCT girls who are giving it to a friend so I will make sure they all get to know about your excellent customer service. Fingers crossed, someone will give one to my little 8 month Alma when she is Christened in a couple months time…

    Kind regards,

    Kindest regards

    Hi Davina

    Just wanted to let you know that I have received my order which is just lovely so thanks for doing a great job.

    Kind regards


  13. Matt (verified owner)

    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


  14. Heather (verified owner)

    Dear Ben,

    I have just returned to work to find my 7 tea-light holder in walnut, I brought it for my husband for valentines, I am that overwhelmed by its beauty and your craftsmanship I gave it to him immediately, I couldn’t resist (and that is so unlike me) he was totally blown away by it, said “that’s you and me….

    and George Benson” we love it.

    I have no doubt my chopping boards will be as equally as beautiful.

    Thank you so much

    Dear Ben,

    I would like to thank you and your staff for the 3 sets of candlelight holders – two sets of 4 and one of 7 – which you have had made and had delivered as gifts to different areas in the country for me during the last couple of months. I have ordered four in all over the time I have known of your company. Each gift has been received in excellent condition and each recipient has been absolutely delighted with the quality and the originality of the gift. The engraving of letters, Star Signs and hearts have been applauded too. I would also like to mention and thank Michelle who has been such a help with any queries.

    Thank you all. I am sure I will be recommending you to others, as well as ordering more products in the future. I am so pleased that you have been able to provide this excellent service throughout the present Covid circumstances.

    With best wishes from,

  53. Theresa

Finish: Superior Danish Oil

Aftercare: Product maintenance is very important. We recommend you continue to treat your product with Danish oil or similar timber treatment oil to protect the timber and stop it drying out. This will also help to prevent staining, discolouration, cracking and warping.

About Timber: Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity changes in your home and outside, rest assured it won’t change drastically. Small hairline splits may occur as your product ages, this is completely normal and is regarded as part of the timbers natural beauty. As the seasons change you may see some movement in your product, again this is completely normal.

Do not store your product outside, in a garden shed or a garage.

If you need any help or advise on how to maintain your product please contact us or consult your care guide.

Product Description: Personalised Oak Tea Light Holders

Stunning Engraved Wooden Tea Light Holders

MakeMeSomethingSpecial’s stunning personalised oak tea light holders are handmade from the finest quality and locally sourced Superior Grade English Oak or Amish American Black Walnut. These engraved tea light holders are all completely crafted by hand in our Surrey Hills workshop from scratch, and they can be made to practically any size. These personalised wooden tea light holders are ideal on a shelf, sideboard, mantelpiece or used as a beautiful centrepiece for your dining table.

Every one of these engraved tea light holders receives the same care and attention to detail regardless of the size you choose. We spend a long time carving each letter and finishing each surface until it’s as smooth as glass. They’re simply beautiful. You will not be disappointed by the quality of the finish. Every oak holder cut out is also fitted with a glass tea light holder insert to keep the tea light candle away from the timber itself and also catch stray wax.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for that someone special in your life, these stunning personalised and engraved wooden tea light holders make perfect gifts and are ideal for 5th anniversary gifts. Since first designing them, we’ve been supplying these engraved tea light holders to very well known establishments, including famous hotels and restaurants, many private customers and celebrities, including members of the Royal family.

Personalise your Tea Light Holder: 

These elegant personalised oak tealight holders make beautiful presents for all occasions. The price includes personalised engraving of your own choice on side 1, perfect for names, dates, house names, a few initials or a favourite quote, making them ideal gifts for 5th wedding anniversaries, weddings, birthdays as well as house warming and leavers gifts. For longer inscriptions, further engraving can be added to side 2. You can also add carved hearts, stars and other engraved motifs like zodiac signs. Take a look at the options available to you – Engraving options.

Unlike other personalised wooden tea light candle holders on the market, we can even add a special secret message on the underside, making your personalised wooden gift that little bit extra special. Something like a reading from your wedding day, a favourite poem or quote, something witty, your family favourite motto, or just something secret you don’t want anyone else to see – but you know it’s there.

These stunning engraved candle holders look fantastic with coordinates of very special places and unforgettable times. You can find out the Latitude and Longitude by visiting –  www.latlong.net
