As the old saying go, quality over quantity is what truly
matters. I much rather receive a gift that is timeless and holds great
sentimental value, as opposed to countless presents that were bought without
much thought to them – but don’t get me wrong, I appreciate everything that is
gifted to me, and am always very grateful! Particularly during Christmas, I
always try to gift a personal present that I believe my friends and family will
appreciate and cherish for a lifetime, and in my opinion, personalised presents
make the best gifts. Not only do they show creativity, but also the time and
effort spent in finding a great gift.
Recently I Just Love It contacted me with an opportunity to review
some items of my choice, from their selection of personalised gifts available
online. I don’t just enjoy gifting personalised gifts, I am also a sucker for
owning them! I love plastering my name/ initials all over material objects,
whether that’s stitched, engraved, embroidered or printed on, frankly I don’t
care, I want it! I Just Love It offers a wide range of personalised items suitable for
all ages, and to celebrate most occasions. Even more handy is the fact that
gift ideas are sub-categorized by recipients, so that you can have a general
idea of what to buy and which items are most popular – we all struggle when it
comes to buying dad the perfect gift, let’s not deny that, a helping hand is
My first gift…to myself… were these personalised pink pencils! I couldn’t resist, I think they’re fab and have
taken them to work everyday since the first day I received them. They
are adorable, stylish, pretty, and for the best part, no one else will ever
have the audacity to “borrow” (steal) them off you! I love ’em.
I was instantly drawn towards the Carnival LED letters as I have been lusting over them for absolutely ageees! I have seen them all over Pinterest and Tumblr, and have always found them to be b-e-a-utiful! Unfortunately the average price tag for these typically starts off around £75, to up to £250 a pop (from what I found), whereas I Just Love It offers these for a bargain price of £24.99, which in comparison to other online retailers, is a complete steal. So being the greedy pants that I am, I chose two! “A” and “S” for Ana Sofia, if you wondered. This gift would be perfect for a teenager as it has that edgy, fun, retro-ish feel to it.
The Alice in Wonderland story book was a no brainer, It is
such a special keepsake that I will treasure forever. My childhood revolved
around Disney movies – I have probably watched them all a million
bajillion trillion times, so when I noticed this personalised story book where
you could include yourself in the story as the main character (as well as other
family members), my heart melted away. My plan is to read the book for the
first time on Christmas Eve, with a hot cup of chocolate and with the fireplace
burning in the background!
These are just a few ideas of what you could consider gifting others, if I was in the receiving end I would be a very happy bunny!

What are your thoughts on personalised gifts? What has been your most memorable gift of all time?
Lots of love, Ana
