Review and Giveaway: Win a £35 gift voucher for Dust and Things

It’s no secret that I love to take and print off family photographs so when Dust and Things got in touch recently, I knew instantly that I wanted one of their personalised Oak photo frames on display in my home.

Dust and Things are an online business specialising in design-led personalised gifts. Their catalogue of products is really lovely with a good range of products to choose from. They take the everyday items such as cheese and bread boards, silver spoons and photo frames and personalise them with their popular typography to turn them into fantastic unique gifts.

Engraved photo frame Dust and Things

We were sent this beautiful engraved Oak photo frame with our family surname on to show off our monthly ‘Me and Mine’ photographs. I really love it. We’ve placed the photo frame in Olly’s bedroom for now as he wanted a photograph of his Mummy and Daddy in his bedroom (to help with the disturbed nights sleep) so it’s proudly on display in his bedroom with one of our recent favourite family photographs.

Personalised Oak Engraved photo frame

The quality of the engraving is brilliant. The lettering is neat and it looks really good. I am rather impressed. The engraved photo frame is priced at just £24.95 and Dust and Things offer free worldwide delivery.

I’ve seen quite a few things from Dust and Things that I would love to get for family and friends as their unique gifts which will really help to mark that special occasion. I really love the keepsake boxes and have my eye on one of those for some of our family memories.

Giveaway time

Dust and Things have very kindly given me a £35 gift voucher to give away to one lucky reader of Life According to MrsShilts. Whether you want to show off your family photographs like I have or celebrate a marriage with a new family name cheese board, Dust and Things can help. All you need to do to enter is use the widget below. The giveaway ends at midnight on the 21st May 2016. Good luck!
