Personalised Birth Block Prints

I really wish I would’ve got one of these when Madame was little, but I guess better late than never.

The lovely Kirsty from Blockart sent me a few samples (personalised birth print, lower case alphabet and a festive reindeer) and I was truly impressed with the product and quality. She not only does personalised birth blocks but also nursery art including Ellie the Elephant, Helen’s Camel and Rory the Lion. Each piece of artwork is mounted on a precision cut block which is then finished to the highest quality.

‘Based just outside Edinburgh, BlockArt is a one woman band dedicated to bringing new affordable but unique nursery wall art to the UK. Currently we are able to provide a product 100% made in the UK, of which we are very proud.’

For obvious reasons these aren’t the exact block prints that I received but this should give you an idea of what they look like. I think they’re gorgeous and a great gift idea (£16.99), even if you’re child’s starting school in January.

Its Your Story! Personalised Gifts

I have to say I was really excited about reviewing Its Your Story, personalised books for children as I think it’s a brilliant idea and I wasn’t disappointed.  All you have to do is choose a book from the website, which is nicely broken down by birthdays, gender or genre.  There is also a section for Adults.

Once you have chosen a book they contact you and ask for details.  In our case, it was daughter’s name, address, best friend’s name, and favourite food.  Then all we had to do was upload a photo of Madame.  Easy peasy.  I think they would make excellent gifts; one to note with Christmas around the corner.

We chose a classic, Jack and the Beanstalk.  When she first saw herself in the book she got so excited, shouting her name on each page.
