Remind Your Nearest and Dearest Why They’re Special With Build My Gift

Gift giving for your family can often be a real struggle, especially just after Christmas when you feel like you’ve exhausted all options for those nearest and dearest to you. We’ve always loved the idea of creating a unique hamper for friends and family, but the selection online has always seemed limited and expensive, but the alternative of making one at home is quite time consuming.

Then we stumbled across the service at Build My Gift and all our prayers were answered! With a wide range of luxe and well-known brands to choose from like This Works, Hotel Chocolat, Burberry and Clinique, the online store lets you custom build your own gift box to include exactly the items you want….as a treat for yourself or a surprise box to send to someone special.

Not only does this give you the flexibility to make sure your recipient gets exactly what you know they’ll love, but it’s convenient and can accommodate any budget. The best part of course, is that it all comes beautifully wrapped in a box and delivered straight to your door without any fuss. There’s also free shipping on any order over £50.

Fabulous Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away, and we find this holiday really hard to buy gifts for. We’re guessing that your other half might be feeling exactly the same, so why not design your own gift box and ask your partner to buy it for you? Such genius idea if you ask us! But if you’d rather enjoy a surprise, simply direct them to the website and suggest one or two items that you really want and let them choose the rest. With little luxuries the iconic Charbonnel et Walker’s pink champagne truffles and higher end gifts like Chloe perfume there’s plenty of scope for a gift you’ll really want this Valentine’s Day.

If you’re feeling generous you could even put one together for the man in your life, with his favourite scent (Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Diesel and many more to choose from) and a stylish Monte Carlo hip flask, or even a fun Poker Set.

For Mum on Mother’s Day

After that don’t forget that Mother’s Day is right around the corner on March 11th, and if you’re looking for something extra special we think you’ll find something your mum will absolutely love. The great thing about Build My Gift is that you can customise it to suit her tastes, making sure nothing in the hamper goes to waste. We think a pamper evening would be in order with a box of treats that will guarantee a relaxing evening and an amazing night’s sleep for your favourite lady.

For Your Best Friend’s Bridal Shower

Why not create something totally unique to help your bff take the stress out of wedding planning? There is a beautiful ‘bride’ mug and trinket box, perfect for enjoying her first cuppa on the big day and keeping her wedding jewellery safe until the last moment. There’s lots of eye-catching Ciate nail colours to choose from too as well as mini bottles of prosecco to get the party started and settle any nerves.

Bespoke Gift Boxes for Brides-to-be

If you’re the bride-to-be, you can easily make bespoke gift boxes for your bridesmaids too. We like the Katie Loxton Make up bags – available in a variety of colours to suit your theme – and the Clinique Pop Lip Colour, Skinny Dip compact mirror and Bridesmaid Trinket Box as a keepsake and a memorable little thank you for all their help.

Show That You Care…

We think the best type of gift to receive is a surprise gift that has no reason behind it at all, don’t you? Sometimes it’s nice to pop a little present in the post for a friend who you’ve not seen in a while, or someone who’s just going through a bit of a hard time.
