Make Me Something Special is Personalized Perfection For Any Occasion!


I (Jennifer) received this product at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

Being pregnant, I completely forgot to plan for our first year wedding anniversary (pregnancy brain, lol). While we did go out to dinner (because my husband remembered), I didn't think to pick up a gift for my husband. I was too concerned with my upcoming due date and getting the nursery finished to go shopping. When I saw the tealight holder on the Make Me Something Special website, I knew my husband would like it! He would rather have candles lit than have the light on at night.

Make Me Something Special is a family business located in Surrey, England that thrives on creating something special for each and every customer. There are no mass-produced factory made products and they are proud to be one of the few remaining companies that value craftsmanship and attention to detail. Make Me Something Special was founded in 2007 as a wooden chopping board manufacturer, and quickly became a personalized wooden gift maker with the ability for customers to personalize and customize any product to their wishes. They started with around 10 products, but now have well over 200! They have many different and unique ways to personalize and create something very beautiful and personal. And guess what?! They even ship internationally!


I received the tealight holder shortly after coming home from the hospital with my son, who decided to make an early appearance. It was extremely well-packaged and clearly marked as fragile. When I removed it from the box, I knew there should be no damage to it as it was well wrapped in bubble wrap. As I opened it, I was really impressed with the craftsmanship of the tealight holder. It was completely smooth, with no rough surfaces! The personalization I requested was all correct. Even my last name which has the capitalization in the middle was perfect! The hearts on the side of our anniversary date engraving were smooth. It was beautifully made and the quality of the piece was amazing!


The Make Me Something Special website lets you personalize your tea light holder, from the choice of wood to up to 10 tea light holders! These holders are handmade from the finest quality and locally sourced Prime A Grade English Oak and Amish American Black Walnut! I really appreciate the special detailing on their pieces and how every tea light holder is fitted with a glass tea light holder insert. It's just brilliant, as this will keep the melting wax away from the wood to preserve it's beauty. They really have thought of everything to make their products timeless pieces!



Here are the dimensions and character quantities to help you personalize a tea light holder of your own:
1 Tea light: 4.5cm x 7.5cm x 7.5cm (2”x 3” x 3”) ~ up to 5 characters
2 Tea lights: 4.5cm x 7.5cm x 15cm (2” x 3” x 6”) ~ up to 10 characters

I am so impressed by the craftsmanship of this product, that now I’m considering one of their personalized chopping boards for my husband’s birthday. I’m also really interested in the fingerprint impression block, which I think would be really nice to have with our son’s birth information engraved. I’m sure anything from Make Me Something Special would be of amazing quality and make a great gift! What would you like to order?
