The Gift Experience – Product Reviews
If you’re looking for something special or a little bit different for the upcoming Valentine’s Day, or for any special occasion, then you might consider looking through all the wonderful items that The Gift Experience sell, most of their items you can have personalised too.
The company is awarded winning, has thousands of satisfied customers and is family-run. Their aim is to bring you the best gift ideas, personalise them and then post them directly to your door.
From cushions to clocks, poster to paperweights, jewellery to jigsaws and much, much more, there is something for everyone. The site is easy to navigate and is searchable via occasion or person and you can also search via how much you wish to spend. There are lots of items to go through if you are wanting to have a browse or head straight to their ‘Gift Ideas’ section for a list of items available if you know what you are looking for.
After being contacted by the company I was asked if I would like to choose some items to showcase on the blog. I had a quick nosy on the site and was blown away by the options. I really couldn’t say no and so the process of choosing began – It was so hard as there are hundreds of nice items, many that I wanted!
I eventually settled of three items. Personalised Valentines Day Bookmark, Personalised Kind Of Feeling Candle and Personalised Silver Plated Rose With Pink Bud.
Personalised Valentines Day Bookmark – £7.99
The bookmark is made from aluminium. You can personalise the bookmark to include your Valentine’s name and a special message of your choice. It has a purple coloured background with a large heart in the centre which you can put your recipient’s name in the middle of. Your message is then printed onto the bottom of the bookmark, this can be up to fifty characters long. The back is plain.
It measures 13cm by 3.5cm, is dispatched within twenty-four hours and can be gift wrapped.
If you’re like me and a bit of a book worm (or a book dragon) then having your own personalised bookmark that has been specially created just for you will put a huge smile on your face. I asked the hubby to choose some words to go on the bookmark and he chose, ‘For the Woman who is never without a book’, quite fitting really.
The bookmark looks and feels lovely. It smooth and a lovely deep reddy-purple colour. This is something that I will get to use over and over again as one can never have too many bookmarks.
If you are looking for something to buy for a bookworm I would definitely suggest this bookmark, as us bookish people really do love them. You can choose whatever message you want to go on it and best of all, it is also cheap at just £7.99 but looks a whole lot dearer.

Personalised Kind Of Feeling Candle – £9.99
I just love this candle, I loved it on the image and it is even better in real life. It is cream in colour and on one side has the words, ‘You give me the kind of feeling people write novels about’ written in black and red combination and features a black quill.
Just underneath the quote, you can add your very own personalised message which will be displayed over two lines and up to twenty-five characters per line (including spaces).
The candle is 13x7cm (approx), dispatched Within forty-eight Hours and can be gift wrapped.
I again asked the hubby what to write on the candle and he went simply with ‘Happy Valentine’s Day, Love You Loads, Steve’. The candle is just so beautiful. The inscriptions are perfect and it arrived in its own little cream coloured bag. I’m not sure I will be using the candle, more likely that it will sit on my shelf to look at.
At just £9.99 I think the candle is well worth the price and is truly beautiful. With the inscription on the front, this too would be a great present for a bookworm.

Personalised Silver Plated Rose With Pink Bud – £18.99
This stunning silver plated rose comes in a variety of coloured buds but I chose pink as the one for me. The rose was taller than I thought it would be, measuring 32cm high and is absolutely gorgeous.
The rose has a pearlised pink bud, four leaves and hanging from the stem is an oval silver plated tag that can be engraved with a brief message. Mine simply states ‘Love You Lots, Steve’. The rose comes in a presentations box and as you can see from the photo below it arrives well protected.
The silver is highly polished and the rose looks gorgeous. I’ve now got to think where to put it – perhaps on my desk to replace the chocolate rose that has sat there for the last two years!
At just £18.99 I do think that it is value for money and will last a long time. It will also last a whole lot longer than a real rose – or a dozen for Valentine’s Day. It is ready to dispatch within twenty-four hours and can be gift wrapped too.

So which is your favourite? I’m finding it hard to choose as I will get most use out of the bookmark, the candle will take pride of place on my shelf above my desk and the rose, well I’ve got to find a home for it, but it will have to be somewhere that shows off its true beauty.
