Items like jigsaws, kitchen wares and wall prints often pop up on gifting guides for ‘People that you don’t know well‘ or are under the title of ‘Not sure what to get someone?‘ and, as a result, they can seem like a boring and bog standard gift for someone that you do know well. Adding a personalised touch to an item can turn what could be considered a pretty dull present into the most talked about and admired item of the recipient’s gift haul. With any luck, it could even go on to become a much-loved family heirloom!
