The perfect way to celebrate a birth, birthday or christening of a loved one, baby or god child.

This beautiful carved personalised letter is created by hand in quality hardwood with an engraving of your choice (optional) making an ideal new born, christening or birthday gift.

Your free-standing carving is hand designed, worked and finished in wax by hand, then engraved with either a name or date making each letter a truly bespoke and personalised gift.

If you need your caving sooner than the specified dispatch time, please get in touch as sometime orders can be prioritised for early dispatch.

We have three options.

1. The date or year will be carved on the thickest section of the carving (i.e. the date the 1st of June 2011 will appear as 1.6.11). However, as each letter differs, the date positioning with change accordingly, where possible the date will appear vertically from the lower left corner as seen in the pictures, with a curved letter the date will be at an angle following the thickest section of the wood.

2. Name option with the word 'for' engraved before the name, so on a letter J it is intending to be read as 'J for Jake'.

3. Have just the Name alone.

With both of the name options, if you have a longer name engraved the size of the text will become smaller,. However we often accomodate names with 9 letters with no problems. If the name choice is too long we will be in touch to offer sugestions.

made from:

The Sapele hard wood used to create your letter is often used in acoustic guitars for it beautiful deep colour, wood grain and durability.

Clean and dust with a clean cloth, the use of polish of cleaning products may stain the wood.


Each letter is 18.5cm tall with a thickness of 3.5cm allowing it to be free standing. The width will depend on the letter chosen.

    The product was lovely and I was very pleased with it. However the individual site was a bit confusing. Ideally I would have had the reverse of the letter carved with the appropriate date but it was not made clear that this was an additional option available. I've since found that it was. That apart, the carving was good and I was very pleased.

    Excellent quality product but don't pay the extra for wrapping- it's not worth it and does not look professional. We had to unwrap and buy our own to do it again. The paper although thick was creased in the wrong places and torn at the corner and the ribbon is very thin too and overall it really made the product look cheap.
