Personalised gifting has never been so popular. Finding gifts can be really hard but personalised gifts are the answer because each piece will always be unique and show how much you care.
This is the Spring Edition of The Personalised Gift Guide. Each of these gorgeous personalised gifts are from small businesses in New Zealand. Beautiful hand made or small batch products that can be personalised as gifts for your loved ones. I've done the research so you don't have to. See below for the most incredible unique and personal gifts you can get.
So, here are some of the most amazing gifts you could ever give! There are obviously so many more...I'd love to hear from you if you'd like to be featured in future editions!
1. Punch 'n Stitch.
These are beautifully hand made leather accessories that can be personalised with names, initials, or colours! There are options of key rings, card sleeves, earrings, and more. Athena has a beautiful bright colour palette that really makes you happy to look at. The card sleeves are so thin and minimal, they will easily fit into back pockets.
These are sure to be a hit to anyone who receives it as a gift. An ideal gift for anyone! You can order by visiting her Instagram page and direct messaging her. Her Instagram handle is: @punchnstitch. Another way to order is from felt at this link: https://felt.co.nz/shop/punchnstitch. These gifts are sure to be used a lot.
2. Hey Roo.
Hey Roo specialise in personalised wire words and timber shelving. Their wire words are a real hit all over New Zealand. They can be for baby shower gifts with the Childs names or as house warming with words such as 'home,' or 'love.' I also love the idea of motivational or affirming words for a Childs' room. They have a huge range of gorgeous colours to choose from and can be hung up with a string or leaned against the wall.
You can order from Kelly on their website: www.heyroo.co.nz. Wire words start at only $39.90 and go up depending on how many letters you require. These are amazing for home decor as well as a personalised gift.
3. The Personalised Pillow.
This small business do such cute personalised pillows. Each is embroidered so it will last. They are all 100% cotton. What I also love about these girls is that they have adapted to the current COVID-19 situation and started making personalised masks! The ordering process is really simple and you can choose up to 15 characters for each mask. Ideas of personalised masks on their Instagram feed are: 'Can't talk now,' 'FYI: Red lippy on.'
The Personalised Pillow is run by two sisters that love to create and pride themselves on being sustainable. You can order at their website: www.thepersonalisedpillow.co.nz. Your gift will be useful as well as personal.
4. True Impressions.
I couldn't write a blog post on personalised gifts and not mention True Impressions. I am a full time mother juggling childcare responsibilities and running a small business. I help people create and celebrate the memories and events that have most impacted their lives. Remembering people loved and lost. These personalised gifts of jewellery will last for many years to come.
The incredible feedback I've received from customers convinces me that this is a really worthwhile business. It's not just jewellery, each piece has so much meaning and love behind it. Most orders that come through are for gifts. How special is that?!
You can order on the website: www.trueimpressions.co.nz. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to have a piece personalised that isn't an option on the website.
5. Forrest & Wood.
Okay this is a beautiful business run by Michelle Hunter. She specialises in floral arrangements. The personalised options are so gorgeous. The name globes are so unique! There are different size options, little, medium, and big. You can choose your own flower colour palette and the words are cut out of wood. These would be a real statement piece as home decor or as a baby shower gift with the little babes name inside.
You can order from the website: www.forestandwood.co.nz. Check out their website, there are so many options for personalised gifts.
6. Freckles and Fine.
For those with a sweet tooth, you don't need to go further then Freckles and Fine. Based in Tauranga, they make custom sugar cookies. Think baby shower gifts, wedding favours and even bridesmaid proposals! Although these won't be a 'forever' gift, they sure will go down a treat. Yum!
You can order from them at this website: www.frecklesandfine.co.nz. Shipping is New Zealand wide. The fonts are variable and the colours. Definitely a delicious personalised gift for any occasion.
So, as you can see, we LOVE personalised gifts here at True Impressions. I am so happy to feature each of these small business as wonderful personalised gifting options. Next time you are stuck for gifts, check out these awesome New Zealand businesses.
