Find out our top gifts and products for personalisation.

There's no denying that the personalisation market is big business, but it might surprise you to know exactly how big it has become and this study from 2015 by YouGov helps give an indication of the rate at which it's growing. The survey was carried out on behalf of the PhotoBox Group which includes brands like PhotoBox and Moon Pig. The survey questioned more than 1000 UK adults and these points were among the findings:

  • More than one in two adults had personalised a gift during the last year

  • Approximately 27 million people have purchased a personalised gift

  • The average spend is now £36.50

  • The age group most likely to buy personalised gifts are those aged between 35 and 44.

  •  At £1 Billion in sales this market is now equal to that for promotional products

If you're interested in expanding into the personalisation market, here are our top product suggestions for customisation. 

1. Memory Boxes

Personalisable Memory Boxes

Perhaps one of the biggest occasions that warrants a personalised gift is the arrival of a new baby. This joyous milestone brings about many keepsakes and new parents will appreciate having somewhere to store all of their most beloved treasures, making our memory boxes a popular and practical gift for new mums and dads. This sweet memory box from our Dream Big Little One collection comes in a neutral grey colour and has plenty of space for printing on Baby's name and birth date.
