Last week marked eight years since I flew to Cyprus and married Mr C on a yacht, surrounded by friends and family. We had an amazing wedding – sailing off into the sunset after we said ‘I do’, sipping champagne and dancing the night away on the top deck.
This year’s celebration wasn’t quite as glamourous but we still had a sneaky night away and a lovely dinner at an Italian restaurant. Although there was less partying and much more enjoying a lie in and reading the paper in peace!
This one is a from a selection of engraved watches at GiftsOnline4U. The company is based in Lincolnshire, where 99% of their products are created and manufactured, so it’s lovely to know you are supporting a a local British brand.
I love how smart and sleek this watch is, and I think it is a complete bargain at £59.99. In my opinion, it looks much more expensive and like it has come from a smart high street store.
Even better, that price includes your own personal message engraved onto the back. You can add up to 90 characters across 5 lines so more than enough to write something special for your loved one. The price is even inclusive of UK delivery, so there are no hidden extras.
There were a few different designs to choose from but I think this watch has just the right mix of being stylish but also chunky and sturdy enough for every day use. The strap has a distinctive stitching but is not too overpowering and complements the simple watch face.
Mr C was very impressed with it and I think I scored a few good wife points!
I do love a good personalised gift and always try to buy them for friends with new babies, or other special occasions as I always love receiving them and think it shows a lot of thought has gone into the present. It also makes it a lovely keepsake that you can look back on and pass down to the children one day.
My personal favourites are a Tiffany charm Mr C bought me when we lived in New York, a wooden boat with J’s date of birth on and a cuddly toy with a jumper that says ‘Miss A’s Easter bunny’.
GiftsOnline4U also do some beautiful pocket watches for something a bit more quirky and a nice range of engraved pewter labels for wine bottles or a bottle of whiskey. There are also lots of other personalised anniversary gifts on the site too so I’ll have to start researching for next year…
