In collaboration with I Just Love It
I Just Love It provide personalised gifts of all kinds - pretty much anything under the sun. I recently got a chance to review their selections and I spent ages looking through the wide and varied collection. There were so many cute things it was incredibly hard to choose! Eventually I decided on two key items. A personalised book for my daughter who loves reading, and a framed personalised map to commemorate our first house together. Alongside introducing the two gorgeous items I received, I will also tell you a few of my top picks from the site and there is even a giveaway of two personalised books at the end of the post.
After spending many a moment on the site I can honestly say I am very familiar with what I Just Love It has to offer. There are gifts to men, women, kids, mums, dads, for all ages, and for all occasions. It was easy to find different categories as well, like interior items and engraved items. There is pretty much something for everyone. Some of my personal top picks of personalised gifts from I Just Love It are :
- Framed House Map, a cute little piece of art for a housewarming party or to first home,
- Vintage Silver-Plated Cake Slicer for a wedding or christening,
- Vintage Playing Cards Word Frame for really personal wall art,
- Round Cheese Board, a perfect little addition for a newlywed couple,
- and a Personalised Vintage Bookmark for pretty much anyone who ever opens a book!
For kids I loved the personalised books - my favourites were On Halloween Night, Your Letter to Santa, The Princess and the Mysterious Noise, Is It My Birthday Yet?, Around the World and The Magical Bookcase. All these books had beautiful illustrations and tastefully done personalisation.
There were other gorgeous things too, such like a Personalised Wooden Letter Train, a Vintage Nursery Sign, and in the run up to Christmas, a letter from Santa addressed to your child. Ah, so much choice!
As for the items we received - I got a Framed House Map and The Princess and the Mysterious Noise personalised book. The sturdy wooden frame included an ordnance map of our address - a funny surprise was that we can also see our previous address on a map as we only moved a couple of miles. This little personalised wall art piece is great quality and looks beautiful up on a wall.
I was a bit worried about the personalised book, as sometimes they are done poorly and just slap the name in without thinking about the visual impact. However, I'm happy to say that the book we chose had gorgeous illustrations, and my daughter's name was weaved in the story as well as in the illustrations in a seamless manner. The graphics were well done and tasteful, and blended in the pictures well. It is such a beautiful book, and I am sure it will become a treasured possession for her.
I Just Love It also kindly provided two personalised soft-cover kids books for a giveaway for you all (UK and ROI residents only)! Click here for full T&C's. You can have a daily entry and a daily tweet too, if you are really keen on winning the prize :)
