You know me and personalized gifts, I love them, I have so many wonderful pieces of jewelry that have some sort of personalization on them and when I was given an opportunity to try out and review these beautiful watches from Giftsonline4U for their Mother’s Day campaign I was so excited!

There are two different dial styles to choose from and two different face colors, black marble and white marble and space on the front and back to add your own little personalized message, I asked my children what they wanted to put on it and they asked for ‘Our Mummy’ as I am not just mummy to one wonderful child, I am a mummy of three

Giftsonline4u have a whole range of beautiful engraved watches for any occasion which you can find here including some utterly stunning pocket watches and some beautiful engraved gifts for her if you want to give something a little different like some engraved wine bottles or jewellery boxes

The watches themselves are engraved in their workshop and prices are a pretty good £59.99, the quality of the watch really shines with the price, it actually feels more expensive than it costs being that it has a pretty good weight to it,  which is fantastic for any product and the engraving is perfectly done in the back of the face and on the face itself and the strap itself is made out of genuine leather which smells amazing and came in a beautiful box perfect for storing it away when you aren’t wearing it.

The personalized part of ordering is simple and to the point, I was actually amazed at how easy it was to place my customization into it, the front engraving has 12 character spaces on offer while the back offers 85 characters in five separate lines so you can add a little poem or saying that is perfect for any Mothers Day gift.

There is also an option to have it gift wrapped and have a gift card send with so it saves you a little time with the wrapping as we all know how annoying it can be finding the perfect box.


Would you recommend it – I would actually, I love personalized pieces of jewelry and this is right up my alley, the watch feels amazing on and I feel its something that would be great for any kind of gift, not just for Mothers Day.

Price– at £59.99 I feel its a little more in the bigger budgets, but considering some customized watches can be more I think its not that bad a price, I know we all watch our pennies, its one price for all so it doesn’t cost more the more words you add for an example.

Anything Else – The only thing I recommend you do is take a browse around the website and see what other wonderful personalized items they have on offer, I am going to be using Giftsonline4U for my future personalized items because I am honestly impressed with the quality of the watch, I might even send Mr S a link to some of the necklaces they have on offer haha.

Until next time

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?


Exciting times in the Mummy Cat household of late, We was asked to test out and review a Gel-A-Peel kit at the start of the month and try our hand at designing our own diary, Amelia was actually overly excited at the idea as she is such a creative little creature, She is forever drawing or asking for paper so I thought it would be perfect for her.

It does have an age recommendation of 8 years plus but I was sure that with my supervision she would be good to sit and draw to her hearts content, The pack we got came with three different colors of Gel a Peel pens, a mold to create jewellery, one guide paper, one clear plastic cover so that you could trace over the guides and not have it stick to the paper and a set of fish hook earring wires so you can create your own earrings..

Amelia loved the packaging and the colors, after years of trying to avoid the typical obsession with pink, Her reaction was just a simple gasp and a giggle of ‘Its Pink!!’ and of course the excitement of the purple diary and the chance to get creating.

The ‘pens’ themselves were easy to use, once you take the caps off which I completely forgot to do on one of them and do not require a lot of pressure to squeeze out the almost silicone like product, Amelia is left handed but had issues writing with them but because they’re designed for slightly bigger hands she had to use both to sketch and draw just fine with only a slight awkwardness but she enjoyed every second of creating her own diary.

One of the great things I found of the gel is that as the name suggests, its easily peelable, if you make a mistake with something you can simple wait for it to dry and peel it off to start again, which also would  be wonderful if you are forever changing you ideas and can keep creating new pictures onto the diary but I recommend not touching them with bare hands because they are sticky and me being stupid ended up getting pink gel over the carpet!!


Would I recommend them – Yes, for older children and even for adults, they sort of remind me of those Scoobi plastic strands, you could sit there for a few ours just creating which I know many do as a form of relaxation and I have found myself putting little dots onto my ipad case.

Price – These kind of toys range anywhere from £10 to £30 but with anything it all depends on where you shop from and how many you want in a pack, there are also refills and extra packs and because of their size and how you use them they can last for a while, just as long as you remember to pop the lid back on after use.

Anything Else – These would be perfect for older children, as the packaging suggests its designed for 8 years plus but my 6 year old managed just fine with them and really enjoyed creating and making with them with my supervision and we’ve both enjoyed making jewellery and adding a little colour onto our boring diaries (and ipad cases!)

Here is our completed diary, as you can probably see, there was some rubbing out! but Amelia loved the task of perfecting it to her own style, full of flowers.

You can find Gel-A-Peel at any toy stores and online.

Until next time
