The lovely peeps at GiftsOnline4U got in touch recently to ask if I’d like to pick something from their site to review. As soon as I saw their Personalised Moet* I knew that engraving one would be a lovely way to commemorate a very special occasion for me: My blog just had it’s birthday and LovedByLaura is now three years old!
Starting LovedByLaura is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I’m so grateful for everything wonderful that’s happened to me as a result of the simple act of me sharing things that I love on an internet page.
There are so many marvellous opportunities when you’re a blogger that it’s taught me to enjoy a life less ordinary and seek out new adventures every day. I’ve met some incredible, inspiring and downright hilarious people through blogging, some of whom have become lifelong friends. Through blogging I’ve also had the opportunity to work with amazing brands and companies that I respect and admire and the fact that they enjoy my content and want to collaborate with me still thrills me every single time.
The GiftsOnline4U website was easy to navigate around other than a persistent pop up box that decided to stalk me around the site after I declined to opt into the mailing list. Ordering was straightforward, I selected my chosen personalised gift and was given an option to fill in up to three lines of text for the engraving as well as being able to select from a number of fonts. In the end I decided on the following:
Loved By Laura is 3 years old.
Let’s drink champagne and
dance on the table!
A few days later as I was getting ready for work there was a knock at the door – a courier with my parcel to sign for. The box was marked ‘fragile’ but the bottle comes encased in sturdy polysterene so it arrived in perfect condition.
I’m so pleased with how it turned out. The engraving is neat and easy to read, transforming what would already be a lovely gift into a wonderful keepsake. Now every time I see it I’ll have a happy reminder of my blog turning three.
That’s why I love picking out the right personalised gift for my friends and family when birthdays, Christmas and anniversaries come up. An engraved, meaningful message shows that you’ve put thought into what you’ve chosen and it’s likely to be something that they’ll cherish for a very long time.
…I can’t say the same for the champagne itself however – it’s only survived this long on account of my being away on holiday when my blog birthday happened and is chilling in the fridge as we speak!
To make it even more special you can add a Personalised Champagne Box too, which I’d definitely consider if I was buying this for someone else.
