Second wedding anniversary gifts in cotton – so romantic!

A few recent orders have prompted me to remind my lovely readers that personalised towels & dressing gowns make unusual, stunning 2nd wedding anniversary gifts.

Memories of your special wedding day are not too distant a memory (like mine over 27 years ago!) and customers tell me they are looking for something really special and unique.

One man wanted me to find a grey material to match the bridesmaids’ dresses and then I sewed a special code on his cotton towels – so romantic! I’d loved to have seen her face when she opened her gift.

Some parents have just ordered large, fluffy cream towels for their son and daughter in law. Sometimes it is hard to find a lovely present but the cotton robes make quality gifts for him and for her.

Second baby arrival – solving the present gift dilemma!

Jane Hamerton personalised towels siblings

Second siblings

Your second baby does not seem as terrifying as the first as you ‘almost’ know what to expect! My second experience was probably worse than my first but let’s not dwell on that.

My daughter jumped on top of my new born son when she met him and apparently I passed out in sheer anger at 18 months old when my new sister arrived from the hospital many years ago!

‘I love you really!’

One way of easing the jealous tantrums is to give Number 1 a gift from Jane to distract them. Many of my customers come back for more personalised towels as they literally last a lifetime. They can choose a white towel or organic hooded baby towel for the new born and something different for the first child – a bath robe or a different colour personalised towel with a gorgeous fabric such as little cars or tractors or retro flowers or hearts?

The inspiring event at Facebook HQ for #upforschool @theirworld – Friday 6th March 2015

I felt so lucky to be invited to Facebook’s HQ for International Women’s Day near Regent’s Park on Friday. The reason I had been invited is I’m a small Suffolk business that makes gifts for  Theirworld shop. The excitement started  the day before with a social media campaign #TBT – Throwback Thursday to get folk to sign the #upforschoolcampaign which has already got a whopping 3 million signatures. This campaign  is calling  on world leaders to keep their promise to get all children into school and learning without danger or discrimination.  My picture was taken on my first day in primary school in Kenya a million years ago!

The HQ is achingly cool, trendy furniture, amazing views, very young FB employees, a wall for  lego graffiti, boxes of old fashioned games falling off shelves where we put our coats and sweets for sale….

The room was filled with young people and Nicola Mendelsohn, Facebook’s vice-president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa introduced the event with passion and enthusiasm and then led an interesting Q&A discussion on technology, entrepreunership and education with Lorraine Candy, editor-in-chief of UK Elle, Mohima Ahmed is a young app developer and Chloe Macintosh founder of  made.com

Sarah Brown spoke passionately to make sure the whole world gets the message: girls’ education matters – and understands that one girl out of school is one too many. She introduced Kainat and Shazia,  friends of the Pakistani school girl Malala Yousfzai – who are now at school in England –their message was that “It’s your duty to stand #UpForSchool.” They are two of the 500 Global Youth Ambassadors in 85 countries who were truly inspiring.

Pixie Lott finished the event off by some fantastic singing with her guitarist Jim. (I simply had to Whatsapp my children) while I pinched myself this was all happening! As I left the building with my freebie gift of a selfie stick thanks to FB (goodness knows when an old lady will use this!)  – I was buzzing with the message of how important it is to spread the word about global education for girls who have no voice.

Unique, personalised towels – sewn to last….

Personalised baby towels

Personalised baby towels

 

After personalising Egyptian cotton towels for nearly 25 years I realise some people do not know exactly what service I provide. It all started when I gave my friends gifts for their new born babies. They asked me to make special presents for their friends and things snowballed.

Tools of the trade

Tools of the trade

What I do is unusual as I do not use a machine to embroider names – it is much more time consuming. Customers choose their fabrics or ask me to provide something special as each one is hand made. Quality fabric is pre-washed in a high temperature to make sure the dyes do not run. Then the letters are cut by hand and stuck on to towels so they do not move when they are sewn. Each letter is sewn with an applique stitch which means that the letters are never washed off.

The towels last for so many years. Children get very possessive of ‘their’ towel. I get lots of customers saying they still have their towels from years ago and it was the best present they ever received.  It is why I keep going!

Perfect, practical gifts
