Why buying personalised is the way forward this Christmas

If you’ve found this blog, chances are you know what I do. But if you don’t, here’s a little summary. I have the very privileged job of telling stories by capturing peoples memories in fine silver jewellery. Once you place your order, I provide you with everything you need to take your print. You then send the print back to me and I turn it in to your chosen piece of silver jewellery. This could be a necklace, bracelet, keychain, a pair of earrings or cufflinks or even a beautiful bead that is compatible with Pandora.

As you can see, at the heart of my business is the principle of making a personalised product for someone. So, why should you buy personalised this Christmas rather than off the shelf?

1. Personalisation shows thought

I think one of the most important reasons is that by buying something personalised you are showing the recipient that you have put care in to choosing something that has been made especially for them.

 2. Personalisation provides something unique

You aren’t buying a generic product that everyone else has, but you are showing you have taken the time to find something just for them.

3. Personalisation provides flexibility

Buying something personalised means you can tailor it so it is exactly what the recipient wants. If you love the idea of a particular product, by adding personalisation you can make it suitable for different ages and also both men and women.

4. Personalisation provides meaning

A personalised product has meaning to it. Whether it be a hand or footprint, a message or a name on something. It touches the emotions of the recipient and is something they can always keep.

As you can see, the are some fantastic reasons to buy personalised products this Christmas. As I have written in a previous post, personalised items take time to produce so if you would like to order for Christmas you need to be placing your order soon and 3rd December at the very latest. If you need any advice on what might be the right personalised product for you then please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll be happy to help.

It’s as important as ever to shop local

“When you buy from a small business, you’re not helping a CEO buy a 3rd holiday home. You’re helping pay a mortgage, put food on a family’s table and give a little girl get dance lessons. Shop local” I saw this quote on the internet and tweaked it slightly. Before I started my own business I… Continue Reading

Why it’s a good idea to order early

I’m starting to become a bit of a pro at this Christmas thing now! Unbelievably this is my 3rd Christmas with Two Green Lane. Where on earth has the time gone! I know many people shudder at the thought of even mentioning  Christmas before December, but with a small business like mine where the majority… Continue Reading

The Best Things About Christmas

This is my final blog before Christmas. Over the last few weeks I have written about my order lead times, why it’s great to shop local and why personalisation is so great.

Why you should shop local this Christmas

“When you buy from a small business, you’re not helping a CEO buy a 3rd holiday home. You’re helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy his team jersey, Mums and Dad’s put food on the table. Shop local” I saw this quote on the internet. I couldn’t put it better myself. Before I… Continue Reading

Ordering Early

With this being only my second Christmas with Two Green Lane, I still sometimes think more as a customer than a business owner when it comes to Christmas. If I’m honest, I shudder at the thought of having to talk about Christmas from October. It feels far too early. However with a business like mine… Continue Reading

Discovering the world of online marketplaces

  Running a personalised business, I have to plan ahead with Christmas and order cut off times are a lot sooner than if I sold pre-made items. As a result I was looking on one of the Kent Trader forums on Facebook for inspiration for Christmas events and saw an advert for an online market… Continue Reading

Why I started Two Green Lane

  When I launched my business I was very diligent in writing a blog once a week. I then changed the frequency to every 2 weeks and unsurprisingly it has now been a few months since I wrote a few words. Call it a mid-year resolution, but I’m going to try and revert back to… Continue Reading

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen lots of activity in March. I took part in March Meet the Maker by Joanne Hawker. She set a challenge where everyday had a theme and you had to post a photo related to that theme. The idea of this was for my current followers… Continue Reading
