1. Personalised wooden tea light holders
These personalised wooden tea light holders are the perfect addition to a beautiful home. On a fireplace, cabinet or centred on a dining table – these high quality wooden tea light holders radiate style and luxury. They can be made to practically any size, and can be personalised with an engraving of your choice, making them ideal wedding gifts.
2. Personalised heart-shaped chopping boards
A wedding is a time of love and purity – both of which are perfectly displayed by these personalised heart-shaped chopping boards. Made from American White Oak – one of the most highly prized timbers in the world – these chopping boards are stylish, traditional and full of personality. The boards are available in three sizes, and as well as an engraving on the front, you can also add a special message on the underneath for the newly-weds to look back on in many years to come.
3. Personalised heart key rings
Keeping with the theme of personalised wedding gifts, these bespoke wooden heart-shaped key rings are sweet and simple. Engrave the key rings with the date or location of the big day, or perhaps a short message for the newly weds to carry around with them wherever they go.
4. Personalised olive wood serving boards
These beautiful, rustic serving boards are made from olive wood, sustainably sourced from olive wood farmers in Tunisia. The boards feature one natural edge for the organic, rustic feel, making them very tactile and multi-purpose boards, either for chopping or for serving. Available in 3 different sizes, these boards can be purchased either blank, with standard engraving or with an engraving of your choice.
5. Personalised double swing
This double swing for the garden is the perfect wedding gift. Hand-made from one piece of Air Dried Prime A Grade English Oak, the timber is perfectly seasoned and adjusted for outdoor conditions. The swing is crafted by hand using Liberon Superior Danish oil, which provides resistance against water, heat and alcohol, and even has a UV filter, meaning your swing will maintain its golden colour for longer under the sunlight. To go a step further, you can have your double swing finished in our Diamond-Coating for maximum protection.
6. Personalised wooden fruit bowls
These personalised wooden fruit bowls are an attractive and stylish way to display your favourite fruits, keeping them colour-coordinated and at the ready. Get creative with your engraving to personalise it as a wedding gift. Perhaps “What’s mine is yours” or “Sharing is caring”. The bowls can be crafted from Superior Grade English Oak or Amish American Black walnut – both stunning timbers, ideal for wedding gifts.
7. Personalised house signs
If the married couple are now living together, these personalised wooden house signs will go down a treat. Available in a wide range of shapes, sizes and styles, there’s a custom house sign for every property… and every couple. The carved lettering can be engraved alone, or can be painted for extra visibility like in the image above.
8. Creative wall plaques
Like the house signs, these personalised creative wall plaques are available in a number of sizes, shapes and styles. The plaques feature invisible screw head fixings, meaning no screws or fittings on show, making them ideal for display anywhere in the house. Make your wall plaque the perfect wedding gift by engraving lyrics from the newly-weds first dance song, or perhaps a poem or favourite quote.
9. Personalised wooden book ends
Each and every side of these personalised wooden bookends can be personalised with an engraving of your choice. As a wedding gift – perhaps a poem or a personal message from you to the bride and groom. The bookends can be crafted from either Oak or Walnut, and are available in multiple sizes with many options to personalise.
10. Personalised heart bowls
Simple, yet stunning, these heart shaped wooden bowls are ideal as personalised wedding gifts. The bowl is available blank, with standard engraving or can be personalised with an engraving of your choice using up to 10 characters on the front face. Carved symbols like hearts, star and other engraved motifs like zodiac signs can also be engraved.
11. Live edge chopping boards
If you’re a fan of Saturday Kitchen, this board may look very familiar to you. The live edge chopping board adds a real organic feel to any kitchen, and while it may seem rustic and rugged, the craftsmanship is as good as it gets. Each piece is hand selected by us for its natural beauty, then prepared and finished by hand in our Surrey Hills workshop. The boards come in two varieties of thickness: 3cm or 5cm thick, as above.
12. Personalised oak cheese board
Kitchen boards are what we’re known for here at MakeMeSomethingSpecial, and you can see why. Combining the very best quality of timber with the most in-depth, attentive craftsmanship, we’re able to create some truly magnificent boards, like the one above. This personalised oak cheese board is built to last, and as a wedding gift, will be cherished for a lifetime.
