Looking for a Personalised Wedding Gift Idea?…






Weddings can be tough to buy for. I have been to a few before Make Me Something Special existed and to find something that really worth buying and the couple are going to use… Looking for a personalised wedding gift idea is tricky.

I tell you – I never have that problem! Since Davina and myself began Make Me Something Special and we started making our beautiful range of personalised wooden gifts, finding a great gift is no longer an issue. Doesn’t matter who it is, what they are into, their house decor, their lifestyle, one of our stunning wooden gifts will work. Same goes for milestone birthday gifts and anniversary gifts.

Normally I am stopped in the carpark on the school run and a patent will say they need a gift, also they have left it late, and they need a good quality gift for a wedding they are soon to be attending. The perfect personalised wedding gift idea.

Every time I give them the run down of the most popular personalised wedding gift ideas we have.

Firstly, the personalised wooden chopping board:

Personalised Wooden Chopping Board - Ideal Wedding Gift

These are a great gift, everyone needs a good long lasting chopping board to see them through the many happy years of marriage. Names on one side, wedding date on the other, you can’t go wrong. From as little as £29.00 for a small all the way up to £500.00 and more depending on how large and how bespoke you want to go.

Personalised Cheese Boards:

Engraved Cheeseboard - Wedding Gifts by Make Me Something SpecialI know I have already showed you a personalised chopping board, but these are a little bit more special. Some as are wooden carving boards which I will show you in just a sec… These gorgeous round handmade wooden cheese boards are simply stunning. You will not find anything quite like them on the market, many have tried to copy this very special board but in order to make a board like this really spacial, you need several very special ingredients.

1 – The timber. We use only the finest Amish American Hardwoods found in the Appalachian Regian of New England.

2 – The engraving is second no known. Carved by both machine and hand, our lettering is both sharp and deep but extremely accurate and precise.

3 – The finish. Hand sanded until silky smooth, then oiled using only the best chopping board oil on the market and polished until it gleams. You have to see it to really understand how good these really are!

4 – The options are endless and can always to adapted to suit you. We are always up for a challenge and we like nothing more then to bring a customers unique ideas to life.

The Carving Board:

Handmade Carving Board - Wooden Wedding Gifts

Always a winner. If you like a good Sunday Roast or something sturdy to carve a turkey on at Christmas, you will love these divine personalised wooden carving boards. We make two very unique designs that have their own ways of drawing away the voices and collecting them in one place. We have several timber options, several sizes and many ways of personalising the board to make it special.

Personalised rope swings:



You can’t beat a good wooden garden swing. I have been told swinging keeps you young. It is great exercise and great fun. Our engraved wooden swings are made to the highest of standards. The timber is one piece solid locally sourced English Oak and fitted with thick synthetic hero rope. This is the best combination you can get. An oak swing seat that can be personalised, will last for many many years and rope that will last even longer. It doesn’t shrink, swell or rot! We also supply high quality swing fitting to help get your swing up and ready to go and makes life easier when it comes to adjustments and taking the thing down to maintenance to be put away when the weather is bad.

Wedding season is upon us…

We have been inundated with orders and its only April! Personalised wooden gifts never cease to be a popular present for newlyweds. When I am looking for a wedding present, I want something that the happy couple will adore, use all the time and last then for years. I nice quality bottle go bubbly works very well but once its gone – its gone.

Here is something we have been doing for a while now and seams to be growing in popularity, special commissions coming in as well as lots of new good ideas in production for engraved wedding gifts.

– The written poem –

Engraved Wedding Gifts from

Engraving is what we do best and carving something as long as this take several hours and lots of TLC. Every letter has to be bang on and the timber perfectly flat or the lettering will either be too deep or not deep enough. Any good engraver will tell you – consistency is key – and this is not done by laser – this is carved.

These stunning wooden wall plaques are perfect gifts for weddings and wedding anniversaries. If you are looking right now – here is something you may not have thought of for an engraved wedding gift! You can have a reading from the wedding ceremony engraved or just a line from the first dance song. A simple message like “LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED” or have co-ordinates of where the wedding day took place. These will go up on a wall or on a shelf and be admired and treasures as a keepsake of the special day.
