There are a lot of personalised gifts out there on the web. Many are not really very practical, they fall short in terms of the amount of personalisation that is possible, aesthetic appeal and quality.

Our products cannot be found on any high street.

You will be delighted to learn about the manufacturing of our personalised gifts and furniture  as our manufacturing method is really unique, all of our products are hand-made, with love, right here in the UK. We know you will be thrilled with your order and  it will exceed all of your expectations.
I can create any design you like, others cannot, so just let me know what you have in mind.
If you need any help then just give me a call on 01245 360317. I really do care.

Our story

Picture Proud all started because my closest friend was due to have her first baby (so a big thank you to you Lorraine) and I wanted to send a little something that was different rather than flowers or clothes. I wanted a unique gift, a gift that had a wow factor, but most of all a gift that would be a lasting memento.

I then set about putting together the train picture, it was originally done in acrylic paints, I calligraphed Jamies’ personal details within the body of the picture, very subtly putting his name, weight, date and time of birth. I wanted Jamie to treasure the picture forever and know who sent it, so I put a personalised message on the back to tell him how much we love him and who it was from. I framed it, tissue wrapped and boxed it then finished it off with a baby blue ribbon and delivered it to Jamie in Hospital.

Mum and Dad were overwhelmed, just the reaction I wanted! It now sits proudly on his wall today. So I set about thinking how I could develop this into a business, and at the same time I so wanted to put that smile on lots of mums and dads’ faces when a beautiful gift arrives.

Since then, you can see I have compiled a collection of my own unique designs, together with some exciting new designs for the future. Since starting Picture Proud I’ve had my own child, Charlotte, she’s just so adorable, and as a mum you so want them to have the best. So I’ve grown Picture Proud as a company alongside my pregnancy with Charlotte, thinking about what sort of gifts everyone would like.

Our products are fantastic gifts for all occasions, maybe a new arrival, a christening, a special birthday, Christmas, get well, Easter or simply because people want to buy something a little different.

2014 sees the launch of our brand new website. We now supply gifts for all ages and all occasions. If there is anything specific you are looking for, then please do get in touch and we will be glad to see if we can help!

One thing I am proud of though is that throughout the years we continued to offer quality hand-made products crafted here in the UK. We know our customers appreciate the craftsmanship that goes in to all our personalised items, they know they are purchasing a product that will last a lifetime and will be treasured for many years to come.

A big thank you to all my customers who believe in us and our products, and who know we definitely offer something a little different and are happy to pay that little bit extra for handmade, unique, personalised products made with love in the UK.
