There is something wonderful about personalized items, we are always so proud of our name that adding them to things is always a must, more so with children and when Giftpup asked me if I wanted to review one of their products I asked Amelia what she wanted..

Her response was ‘Pencils with my name on them’  so we went for the 20 Personalized Gold Embossed Pencils.

What I think I love about them the most is they are hand engraved, not made by a machine so of course they do take a little while to get made and shipped out within 5 to 6 working days, but that’s to be expected considering that they are made to order and are fantastic quality.

They come pre sharpened so there’s no need to worry about delaying any drawing that’s needed to done which because it was just the half term there was a lot of being done.

Giftpup does have a wonderful collection of beautiful personalized items ranging from adorable bears to stunning  jewelry which is fantastic for mothers day or perhaps for some personalized bridesmaid gifts and a wide range of general gifts for any occasion, the website includes a very handy gift searcher that you can input exactly who you are buying for and saves lots of time from endlessly searching the website and on the main page includes products that are included in the latest occasion that’s coming up.

Would I recommend them? – Yes! Personalized gifts are loved by everyone and these are fantastic, Amelia really loved the pencils and I am glad it made her day knowing she had her own set that her brother Kai wasn’t aloud to use.

Price – Price for everything on the website is fantastic, the pencils themselves cost £5.99 and are actually cheaper than the ones you can find in the stores which is a plus for us as we tend to go on ‘brand’ over anything and I love these.

Anything Else – Nothing else, the website is easy to use and ordering is pretty straight forward, I am excited to use Giftpup again for future events and birthdays and I honestly wish I had found them sooner.

Have you ever used giftpup before?

A few weeks ago, a wonderful friend of mine who I met through a Facebook baby group (she runs her own blog too) started making these beautiful chalkboard momentos. 
They. Are. Stunning!

I decided to order one for Robin for her first birthday as I’ve been taking monthly ‘milestone’ photos of her and figured that the big 1 needed to be a bit more special.


They are completely customisable, within reason to the amazing talents and I highly recommend you contact her and get one!

Sizes and prices range from A4 at £22 plus postage, A3 at £25plus postage (that’s the size I got) and A2 at £27 plus postage and you can choose what you want on it. 

Sam, the designer, keeps you updated throughout the process so if there are any changes she can correct them. 

Go and take a look at her page Chalkboards by Hand and of course have a read through her wonderful blog My Mini Monkeys

Until Next time
