the best birthday present I ever received…

Following the birth of my son, my partner had these personalised mugs made up as a fun little gift. As I watched the family open these I started to fail to see the funny side as my endless hints regarding a new non-maternity wardrobe seemed to have been ignored! With a tight grin I opened my mug. Inside I found £1000 which had been carefully put aside every month for nearly a year. He said he knew better then to spend this sort of money on clothes without me! By far the most thoughtful present I have ever received.

Any gift from the site never disappoints! However, I was given a diamond ring as a birthday gift from a then-serious boyfriend, to symbolise our future together, as things hadn’t been going too well. When I opened the box, the diamond was so small I could barely see it – a mere shaving. Unfortunately it ended up symbolising the end of the relationship rather than a new start!!

A friend of mine has been going through a really tough time of it lately so she was not looking forward to her birthday very much at all. I gave her a Kutuu personalised keepsake necklace with her initials and the initials of her children on, to remind her of the good things in her life. She adored it and hasn’t taken it off since.
